There was a shortcut for the Pi's boot partition: 9fs pidos
9fs is a rc script, check it out!

Also, you can bind -a '#G' /dev to get access to the GPIO device files. I had to find that one from the sources.

More lines of code means more bugs. Therefore, the easiest way to write less bugs is to write less code. That’s not to say doing so would take less time. Indeed, large software projects often grow large because of a lack of time.

I got a bit frustrated with my Pi, so I installed on a spare amd64 machine with an SSD. Building Go programs is fast! Everything is fast!

This will make a great cpu server. the pi will make a great terminal.

Managed to get drawterm to connect to my cpu server, although my configuration is certainly a bit janky. I still have a lot more reading to do.

Just updated my guide from acme over sshfs. So much harmonious facility in .

There were some peculiarities with setting up 9front on the Raspberry Pi, which were not covered in the (otherwise great) 9front FQAs, so I wrote up my notes in setting up on a Pi 3 B+.

Let me know if there are any mistakes or misconceptions there, I'm still feeling my way around here.

@climagic and the creators of SCSI intended it to be pronounced “sexy” and were dismayed that it caught on as “scuzzy”.

It doesn’t matter what the creators intend, just what people do.

Well, that was easier than I’d imagined it might be. For the users here, are you running your root FS on the sdcard? Or a USB device?

Which flavours are people using on the Raspberry Pi, and which Pi models? I see people talking about both 9front, 9legacy, and vanilla. Any other options I’m not seeing? Also why’d you choose what you chose?

I noticed a website I use has a 16KiB *javascript* thats sole job is to download the "best" favicon.ico format for my specific browser. A typical favicon is around 1KiB. What a collosal waste of energy and time the www has become.
