My truck is having major issues and I need to get a loan for a car soon, my bathroom is completely stopped up again and I can't afford a plumber, and I keep having nightmares about someone trying to break in again.

I am so, so tired of living in this house and being absolutely financially powerless to try and move up and move out.

I'm beyond stressed and just ready to win the lottery

what should we do with that floppy?!?!

(with only 50mbps down because it's DOCSIS 3.0 but y'know that's fine)

My new UPS got here! So now my whole network setup (DOCSIS 3.1 modem + WAN router + 8 port PoE switch) and my server are backed up. As an added bonus, I put my old UPS over in the corner to run my Altair, so no more worries about blackouts corrupting my floppies!

(Though, I suppose I could program that in to the queuing program, but I think the 15 minute timeout is adequate enough)

No idea who this was, but thanks for the heads up! I still had port 8081 blocked on my VPS. It works now!

Also you've gotta press Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X (the Picocom kill command) to release the session! Telnet's not smart enough to know you've killed the session in some other way.

the mupid is a fascinating beast

aside from looking cool, it was an early 80s graphical terminal capable of vector graphics drawing and running programs directly downloaded from the network.

I simplified the join page by a LOT!

Everyone is free to join Sector Disk or add more sectors to your lot if you've already joined!

Telnet is available again for the Altair now that I've (hopefully) fixed that forkbomb bug!

You can telnet to `` port 8080 to mess with the Altair or port 8081 to watch the live log.

You can always, of course, `ssh -p 422` or `ssh -p 422` too ;)

So I finally got my new modem, BUT it turns out Netgear can't make routers (go figure) that *actually* deliver gigabit speeds over gigabit ports, so I'm ordering all new networking stuff that I've had on my Amazon wishlist for a good while now.

Rexpaint is a modern #ANSI art editor that looks pretty great:

It's technically for Windows but the site says it works with Wine.

It fits on a single floppy, too! πŸ’Ύβ€‹:blobreach:​

Just upgraded to gigabit internet! (It's DOCSIS 3 so only 50mbps up... but still!) It was only $15 more than my 200/20 plan, so I'm happy about it.

Now I've just gotta wait on my new modem to get here so I can get that nice 1000mbps down screenshot...
