Well, I am officially giving up on trying to set up a bare metal development environment for the Teensy 4.0, at least for now. I believe it is possible, but I'd rather not fight against the platform too hard. If I gave it some more time, I could probably reasonably set up and use NXP's MCUXpresso, but just using GNU Arm and Makefiles seems extra challenging.

As much as I hate the Arduino IDE, if it works, it works, and it's the path of least resistance.

@kragen Much slower than I wanted :) Mainly trying to get a decent Teensy 4.0 dev environment set up!

I'm going to try bit-banging MFM data from a floppy drive with a Teensy 4.0 today!

... man that sounds dirty.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

Ads during package installation except its demo scene like "greets" to a selection of other projects used in the creation of that package.

The 3B2/400 I'm currently restoring came from UNIX Systems Labs. Anyone know these two? Their names and phone extensions are on a label adhered to the hard disk bracket.

I can't believe nobody owned this domain name. I do, now. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I have some ideas. wiener.space

@phooky I was under the impression that babies just leak constantly regardless of the current state of teething.

@fribbledom you mean to tell me that I've been a UNIX and Linux user for 27 years now, and I never knew about `cd -` ????

I was a big ebook reader for a long time, but recently my Kindle has been gathering dust. I've started buying all my books in dead tree format instead, and I'm finding that the ergonomic and tactile experience of using a real printed book is just plain nicer than navigating an ebook. I missed it. I sure do wish you could grep them, though.

Oh my God. This is part of Icelandic culture I have never been exposed to, and I did live there very briefly!

@vertigo
Just playing around with Blazin' Forth to see how it differed from Forth 83. I don't have a manual, though, so I kind of have up (for now!)

My main Forth experience is MUF (Multi-User Forth), the language used to program player utilities in Fuzzball MUCK.

Oh no, I've made a huge mistake. I am attempting to use Docker to manage the services on personal Linode host: A few static HTML sites, a MariaDB database, and Nextcloud. "It's easy!" they said. "It makes everything reproducible!" they said.

It's now three days into this exercise and I still can't get Nextcloud working behind an Nginx reverse proxy. In fact, I've managed to make it WORSE: Now I can't log in at all, and I don't know why.
