Was looking for something to read so I searched my bookmarks for something tagged 'relax'. That's how I ended up reading The Star -- I really loved it. I wonder how it got into my bookmarks in the first place! sites.uni.edu/morgans/astro/co

SDF aNONradio is celebrating 25 years on September 7th. Here is a little blurb from the Honolulu Weekly October 8th, 1997 asking the question: "The Internet has been touted as the public square of the Global Village. but does it have a decent radio station?"

How many of these are still around today? Come and party with us September 7th, 2021!

I'm v happy I got my print copy of 9FRONT COMMUNITY VS INFRASTRUCTURE. Grateful it easily ships to Europe now! Thanks @sl@merveilles.town

@djsundog @phooky modern DRAM is so challenging to initialize that the cpu runs in Cache-As-RAM (CAR) mode until it the x86 firmware blob has finished link training.

I've been a software engineer for almost 10 years now and I still keep going back to the basics (possibly because I didn't study software engineering nor computer science in university). Every time I'm reminded of how with a few basic constructs one can achieve a lot. Then I think of real-world jobs I've had, where tools and abstractions abound, but there's often little substance.

@dokoissho@merveilles.town If you don't want to host your twtxt.txt in a place of your choosing — mine is at SDF nicolagi.sdf.org/twtxt.txt — you can get an account on this "pod" twtxt.net/, AFAIK. But I haven't tried the latter.

@dnjp@merveilles.town Got it, thank you for clearing up that minor mystery for me! I'm a bit surprised though: I only scroll with b1/b3, and I love the surgical precision of that; I can point and click at what I want to be the last/first displayed line that way. I sometime drag while holding b2 if I'm looking for something. I don't use the scroll wheel nor arrow keys. (I use acme more often than sam, but scroll in the same way.)

Hi Daniel, could you elaborate? You're not the first to mention this and I'd like to understand more if you don't mind sharing (especially considering I'm quite okay with how scrolling works). @dnjp@merveilles.town

@dokoissho@merveilles.town looks like you really have to upgrade git9 somehow!

@chaosmonk thanks 😊 I love how 9front forces me into a more slow computer life. I keep the frenzy state of modern computing on my work machine and my pocket device and so far so good!

In Plan 9, the same idea is used to support both containers and VPNs, and it knows of neither
