Yesterday I used uuencode and uudecode for the first time in ages. It worked!

Before I discovered that I had uudecode available, I tried to use xxd to encode and awk to decode.

But my awk one-liner did everything right except never outputting any zero bytes.

This was on BSD 2.11 on a PDP 11/84... it's a machine called snake and you can use it too, just go to
wiki.livingcomputers.org/doku.

Anyhow, I successfully computed 100 digits of Pi using BBC Basic!

Hi, I'm Scott, or Fivetoedsloth, or sdl. I've been here for a few years but never really used the account. I suppose its as good a time as any to get started. I'm interested in computing, bicycles, motorcycles, photography with film and chemicals and darkrooms (oh my). There's a turntable and a pile of vinyl to my right. A tuba to my left.

🎼 these are a few of my favorite things 🎵

If only I were as good at using music gear as I am at acquiring it.
