All that just for the meeting to be canceled. Not surprised. πŸ™„ πŸ˜‚

Made it back to my office for my MS Teams meeting with 30 seconds to spare, but it hasn't started yet. Trying to catch my breath before it actually starts. 😩 πŸ˜…

The Symbolics Lisp Machine had an emacs clone named zmacs.

The "z" in zmacs stood for ZWEI.

"ZWEI" is an acronym for "ZWEI Was EINE Initially."

"EINE" is an acronym for "EINE Is Not Emacs".

Gonna grab a bite to eat before the meeting at noon. Looks like the macaroni with cheese and ground beef they have here is winning over the oatmeal I brought for lunch, so time to dig in! 🍝

So far, a very good day of testing today. All seems to have gone well, but I'll have to check that one lab I set up based on a ticket I got, though I suspect more of a PEBKAC error than anything there. Still, I hope to have some more machines ready for testing tomorrow before the day ends. πŸ–₯️πŸ–₯️πŸ–₯️πŸ–₯️

I'm listening to the new Master Boot Record album (dropped yesterday) and while I'm only three tracks in I'm super impressed. It's like if Brendon Small got really into Bach but built on top of a demoscene sensibility with a lot of chiptune hidden where you can more feel it than hear it. It's really good!

First day of computer-based testing here at the high school, and first time for me providing technical support at a high school for computer-based testing. Let's see how it goes. πŸ™ 🀞

Thankfully, the PCs that I was able to set up in that lab yesterday are working fine. Now, to look for long-enough patch cables to get the others connected and imaged. πŸ‘

Apple donated between US$ 100 and US$ 249 to the FreeBSD Foundation in 2020. Almost all of it, probably in matching donations.

Even Microsoft gave more. Probably in matching donations as well. And that's not counting Google, Cisco or Netflix.

And that is all you need to know. When will multinationals finally respect the fact that the vast majority of today's tech landscape is based on open source?

@dsyates So, are those primarily from any particular platform? I always thought of MODS as an Amiga thing.

I set up a pretty awesome internet audio stream of over 140,000 MOD files; that's over 309 days worth of continuously streaming MOD music from 1987-1995.

Channeling my rage from all these annoying people into my workout. Gotta do something positive because murder is wrong.

Well, I know my reflexes are still good. Someone across from me dropped the weight on the multi-section machine and my knees just jolted. πŸ¦΅πŸ»πŸ˜‚
