I like lambdas because they look pretty. That is all.

I'm still hard at work doing things with the ๐Ÿญ โ˜

Mostly behind the scenes stuff for the time being.

An official post will be up once I get some stuff situated ๐Ÿ˜‰

Earlier this week, I had my #nextcloud installation stop accepting connections from any client other than the web interface.

Today, I tried doing a quick install on a raspberry pi, and I couldn't even get it finish installing successfully.

Did something SERIOUSLY break in the most recent release?

@bhtooefr This CDROM image originally published in 1993 contains Ghostscript 2.3 for DOS. Ghostscript 2.1.1 would be a version from a date older than 1991 it seems.

That's unless you actually mean Ghostview 2.1?

@PinkCathodeCat @bhtooefr

I don't think Ghostview was ever compiled for DOS, most likely ot was only available for Windows.

In any case, this other CDROM image circa 1993 contains both very old Ghostscript for DOS and Ghostview 1.0 for Windows along with a Windows GUI tool for Ghostscript.

I do this in #emacs.
- feeds: <youtube>/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=....
- put feeds in elfeed just as 'normal' feeds
- define key to spawn link in mpv (and have youtube-dl installed)
- using a wrapper called umpv which puts things on playlist if mpv already active

Shouting into the void (please boost): Looking for an old-ass copy of Ghostscript, at least version 1.3 (which has DOS binaries, because screw actually building this), up to 2.1.1.

I've no idea how I got to a Web browser on this food-ordering kiosk, but here I am.

I'm crying because my galaxy note 5 won't charge beyond 200 mA+ and I'm not smart enough to do a hardware fix by myself and I don't have money to pay somebody else. I also don't have money to get a new phone as I went onto the $30 a month tpg plan to help get out of debt

@brennen @hairylarry @thinkMoult @PinkCathodeCat VAX-11 operating system, VMS, supported revision numbers on files. It was simultaneously incredibly useful, and also very annoying to have to work with. One might say it was an early experiment in revision control natively supported in the operating system.

most of the vu refugees are going to Deakin, which makes me suspect it's easier

I'm not eligible to transfer to Monash' LLB and BA because I've done too many units. now I'm stuck between Deakin and Swinburne. Swinburne is commercial focused, but has placements and optional overload PLT. Deakin has more of a criminal/family focus, but with the double I lose electives.

Note to self: do not fuck up the unrar command with over 8000 files because this sucks and I don't know the unix command to delete all files with a specific modification date

Somebody loved Midnight Commander a little too hard, but it helped me learn something new: softpanorama.org/OFM/MC/mc_tip

there should be an app called positron that uninstalls all electron apps from your computer
