Moved wifi and timesync into termrc so I don't have to type them in every time I boot.

Making a tennis theme for rio/acme using @neauoire's #plan9 notes. Not sure why, I don't play or watch tennis.

I want rio and acme's text background to be the same colour, but I can't get it. Are they not both [BACK]? Maybe I'll take another look after dinner.

So today I built a little imaginary computer with 16 registers, 256 addressable rom and memory addresses and status flags. The cpu understands 16 op codes.

Decided to try to out inferno, but the wm is really not doing it for me. Rio is everything I need in a wm.

The Plan 9 spell-checking dictionary does not contain the word 'coetaneous.'

@neauoire Yes, drawterm is sort of like a plan 9 terminal that runs on other operating systems.

It requires setup on the machine you're connecting to. I am only familiar with 9front in this aspect. You need a cpu server (this is one you're connecting to) and an auth server (this is the one that checks your password/grants access) and a file server (this provides the storage). All three can be one machine, or different machines.

9front's documentation for this is at fqa.9front.org/fqa7.html

@thomasorus It would be smaller in size to download the whole of plan9, and use the 9front gemini client.. And you get an entire new OS.
