I'm still looking for and documentation for the Intel IPSC platform. I'm interested in trying to preserve it better.

Ah shit mastodon.rocks went down. That blows.

Someone leaked an .mbox file of the FreeBSD Code of Conduct discussion.

One interesting -- totally unrelated to #HugGate -- takeaway:

A *lot* of key FreeBSD people don't actually use FreeBSD. They email from MacOS X and Apple Mail.

@BryanLunduke Loved the last show Bryan. You are my favorite boat rocker. Unconsenting fist bumps your way. I got your 6 bro.

@BryanLunduke

Sad to hear so many people have given you BS over just bringing facts to their attention.

One thing though in my experience Code of Conduct enforcement within FreeBSD has always seemed hit and miss.

@failtime IDk at this point I use offline mode so much on Steam that my recorded hours are waaaayyy off from what I've actually played. I just here recently hit the 24H mark on Borderlands 2, my actual play time is over 2 days worth just on my gunzerker alone.

Ah great SVN is screwing up for me on Debian Sid.

Oh It's for the Intel iPSC platform just as an FYI.

Well the museum just got back a hold of me, it's a dollar per page. Now I wonder if any one is willing to help pitch in. πŸ˜€

@xmanmonk Oh hey I forgot to mention I have started a GitHub project to try and collect what little info there is out there on it. github.com/Gamewizard/iPSC

As you can see not a whole lot has been found yet.

@xmanmonk Yeah, that had to suck. I actually got started down this rabbit hole because some one who used to Admin one for a research team was looking for the Simulator code on R/Emulation of all places. that brought to my attention how little is actually documented on these machines. To add insult to injury from what I've seen even the few Museums that have actual machines seem to not have all the documentation. I await a response from the museum.

Well the Computer History Museum has some of the documentation for the iPSC platform but they do seem to be missing some of it at least I'm making some progress again. Why did such a obscure platform have to grab my eye. Finding anything on this line of machines has been frustrating to say the least.

@art
Yeah I'm been meaning to get one more. I've so far liked this much more than Twitter.

@art
Man I'm still trying to get the hang of Mastodon πŸ˜†

Well for some reason I can not seem to get search to work right . 😠

@BryanLunduke
