Kinda sad fdisk.com has been dead since March-ish.
It had been my favoritie non-ssl site for double checking captive portal shenanigans without having to wrestle with https everywhere.
I have a lot of nostalgia for it, as it was both a very useful repository of tools for interneting with #DOS and fdisk tips & tricks alongside a wealth of DOS partitioning tool links.
Not that I oppose the GPLv3 far from it; it is however not meant for documents. I usually use the GFDL for that. https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLOtherThanSoftware
I'm a little confused about how the #GPL applies to HTML/CSS/SVG/#Hugo themes though.
The mastodon sharing widgets in this repo here are under GPLv3.
Does that mean my site itself will have to be GPL? Just the HTML and not the content ? Just the Hugo theme ?
I finished up most of the HTML/CSS bits last night. Mainly got to transition from HTML files that look like my blog with placeholder texts, to actual Hugo layouts with Hugo functions.
It is to hacker culture, what medieval europe is to fantasy fiction.
I wonder if that makes many larpers.
Sometimes I think about the pre-80s Pre-GNU hacker culture described by Stallman and others. Where software freedom was both the norm and undefined; and all the froody people getting in on the ground floor doing exciting things which lay the foundation for the present.
It's tempting to think of it as a golden age, that one ought to have lived then and not now.
However it's a golden age restricted to a small handful of people in a handful of prominent universities.
1. Department demands proprietary service integrated into our FLOSS LMS. It requires third party cookies to work.
2. Some versions of iOS block third party cookies. This service not working on select iOS devices infuriates the department in question. We point them at the vendor.
3. Vendor demands we re-install their integration/plugin with the exact same XML configuration we used before; claiming it has been modified.
4. Goto step two.
ESR took a cool counterculture and got his shitty right-wing UNIX ideology all over it—he's not just a bad person, he's a exceptionally bad historian and you shouldn't take his word for anything, the jargon file that he "curates" reflects nothing like an actual 70s/80s programming culture.
here's a pre-ESR jargon file for reference: https://www.dourish.com/goodies/jargon.html
Unfortunately it's pretty obvious that my class isn't going to cover more modern practices (all the book's design sensibilities are from the 90s) and I'd like to explore adaptive/responsive design.
Any recommendations for additional resources?
