I named it Gophwr after a friend's typo. 😸
It's a bit haphazardly put together in less than two days, but it works. Sorta kinda. I promise I'll clean it up soon.

I'm trying my hand at making a graphical Gopher client.

And it is done: erkin.party/emacs/

Since all pages here 404'd, I figured I'd start a compilation myself. emacswiki.org/emacs/EmacsPower

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

I'm collecting "Made with/Powered by/Created with Emacs" webpage buttons/badges. I'll put them up on my website soon.

I just realised that the reason the GCC logo features a gnu breaking out of an egg is that it's a pun on EGCS, GCC's former name.

Are ARM and PowerPC the only non-x86 options for a desktop computer today? Surprised to see no MIPS options on the market.

The internet used to be a city: it had its weird bohemian districts, its flea markets, its high-rises and back alleys. Now it's just a shopping mall, and I miss my old city so much

Things I wish Linux had (incomplete):
* SIGINFO (from BSD)
* Firmlinks (from HURD)
* Doors (from Solaris)

Apparently my C style is called "Allman-8". Never knew it had its own name besides just "Allman".
Although I can't find any references to it anywhere else.

I wonder how many editors/IDEs support the form-feed character.

TIL HURD preserves file *authors*, distinct from file *owners*.

notable recent @SDF occurrences:

- acted as primary test pubnix for 8 kernel development

- added numbers & improved service

- commissioned dedicated server for freeing the meta-array & improving connectivity for local public radio disc jockeys and listeners alike

- expanded system resources including massive storage space increase

- stabilized sip/telephony services to professional level

- failed to ask me for money even once!


Now I just gotta waste some time writing caldat/calcol files.
