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
Anyhow, I successfully computed 100 digits of Pi using BBC Basic!
Saturday Evening ride. Some substantial climbing on a 5-speed bike... fortunately it wasn't too long... (going down was great fun of course)
Something different this time. Saturday on an mountain bike. Some 22km through various terain - from good road through gravel to dirt.
A 1990s Czech Velamos mountain-wannabe (a classic steel frame with roadster geometry combined with a Shimano derailleur and a so).
Actually, the bike rides very well!

Here are some more photos from the Sycamore Bluffs area beside Four Mile Creek on the way there.
First longer ride with #jazda. Impressions:
- I need to show battery level. I don't know if it was fully charged
- it survived the entire ride
- it shut off after I got back, after almost 5 hours with GPS on
- when the wind is blowing, I'm going way slower than I thought :S
So in the past few weeks I had been listing, delisting then relisting, listing again, delisting again… old computers etc that I have not been using (well using but for fun and entertainment lol)… and the same loop went on and on maybe about 5 times (I’m not kidding). Even put my bike on sale —- I have also just delisted it LOL I had the same purging spree the last time I moved a few years ago but that one I somehow succeeded giving up my priceless (but old and maybe useless) tech 
@gdr No vandalism ever (yet..?). Otherwise it has been there for a year now and looks as new.
Only maintenance I've done is lubricate the pump seals (prolongs life) and the tools/metal chains (slows corrosion). 'bout five minutes every two months.
I took the pump and tools away between December and February as I figured they wouldn't get any use in that period. Will probably keep doing that as it will massively prolong the life (and takes maybe 15 minutes to do).
I need more pretty bikes in my timeline. Please show me your pretty bikes. Boosts appreciated.
I posted one of mine yesterday. Here's some posts I wrote about a couple of my favorite bikes with more photos.
