Hi @SDF wondering if someone could help take a look at my SDF account `klu`? I haven't been able to start bboard for about 3 weeks now. Tried this on different sdf hosts, purged all .bb* files, tried to contact membership. I've kind of run out of options now.. Thanks so much!

Dropped of kid at soccer practice and SDF’ing in the 🚙 with ☕️

bboard hasn't been working for me lately - it just silently terminates. Anyone know why?

Today I just contributed my first package. It felt so fulfilling. I love pkgsrc!

I'm just wondering - if the people living in this town know that they live in my computer? Are we living in someone's simulation?

My main powerhorse 2020 macbook pro is going away. I'll wait on the new Macbook Pro on M2 chip which is yet to be launched.

In the interrim, I have no choice but my daily driver will be a PC I built 10+ years ago. I'll see how well it can handle photo and video processing till the end of this year...

qemu is a LOT of fun! Built from source using pkgsrc. Got WinXP installed on MacOS. Next step... going to install SimCity :)

I’m on the verge of surrendering to bashism (or maybe zsh-ism) after insisting to write POSIX shell compliant scripts. It’s just too mentally challenging to be productive and concise with such restrictive language, to a point I kind of doubt that being shell agnostic isn’t so important after all …

Wow I was able to build qemu using pkgsrc on MacOS, and boot into Windows 10 installation within 2 hours.

I AM IMPRESSED.

Minor patch on the qemu source code to make it build for MacOS though.

After a streak of rainy and cold weather, today’s quite lovely. I’m waiting in line to get some fresh shrimp for dinner. It’s good to be able to step away from a wining toddler for a break too 😩. while driving here, I was also listening to anonradio for the first time in a few months (work has been stressful lately) so that was nice.

Tried searching for it and asking over IRC - no luck. Then shamelessly switched over to FreeBSD and now I got my tmux and fluxbox lol

Time to wipe and install NetBSD on this old buddy. Why? Because I’m bored😐

I have so much idea on hobby writing. But I spent so much time looking at screen at work that I’m just too tired to do any thing on computer
