Just a quick reminder, I have a GNU/Linux distribution called "PsychOS" for running on older hardware (i686) and will hopefully soon release "PsychOS486" for those with even older hardware (i486DX/i586/i686), as long as you have 32MB of RAM for a console and 64MB for a GUI desktop, but 128MB would be much better. psychoslinux.gitlab.io

I was trying to help someone with something and stumbled onto this (Python's pip output)... You know how they love "the open source." 🤑 I wonder what was wrong with version 0.0.1?

Anyone want to pay me to make DOS, pre-W98, or BBC BASIC software? That sounds awesome to me. Can we make this a thing in 2020?

"I don't know what kind of system you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for another consumer, I can tell you I don't have the money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for programmers like you. If you FOSS everything that'll be the end of it. I will not google you, I will not download you, but if you don't, I will DDG you, I will find you and I will replace you." -- GNU/Linux

I am currently old-school over at theouterlinux.gitlab.io/live.h. Right now, it is essentially a loop of a 7 sec MP4 video while music is playing and doing all of this from the of a 3. At the moment, this is more of a test to see if it is possible to do a "set it and forget it" sort of stream box. There is also a web-based IRC chat option if people want to chat but have a "no sign-up" option. If it's just music, I'm probably not there.

So do more people use PsychOS than watch the move "Psychos?" Well, according to DuckDuckGo... And I have tried both "PsychOS" and "psychos" and it is the same results. Also, I would like to mention that this was done with the Tor Browser.

Sometimes I lookup the projects I am working on to see how they rank in search engines or what shows up. I know about Google's "bubbling"; however, I do not use Google anything and this was with the Tor Browser. I created and maintain the "PsychOS" project, which is currently an i686 GNU/Linux distribution with other flavors planned such as an i486 (PsychOS486) and a FreeDOS version (PsychDOS).

Well, that stupid Arch bot is back for another round of ruining everyone's search experience. :blobugh: I can just mute it, I guess, but it is still annoying to see it flooding the search results none the less.

Does anyone here remember the URL to a Facebook timeline in which is just a huge list of all the messed-up things they have done?

Also, because of the very limited amount of JS on a static website, everything should run better. And, if I mention something that I am working on or art/music/videos, you are already there to click on those links to know what I'm talking about. Basically, I have a lot more control this way and can lessen the amount of embeds on the stream video itself which should hopefully help with frame rates and so forth.

I'm not live streaming at the moment, but I thought that I should let people know that instead of going to picarto.tv/theouterlinux, you should be able to simply go to theouterlinux.gitlab.io/live.h instead in which there is an embed of the Picarto stream and then an IRC web client just beside that. This way, anyone can watch and anyone can chat with no registration. First come, first serve, unless you have a registered Nick, if you want a cool temporary nickname. See instructions for older hardware.

@genova447 Thanks for the Twitch follow (assuming that was you), but I no longer stream on Twitch and that page is still just there to inform people about my streaming on psicarto.tv/theouterlinux instead. However, for the last week or so, I have been making my own live stream page people can go to instead in which will have the Picarto stream embedded, an online OFTC web chat client, and maybe a few other goodies for when I'm not streaming. This way, anyone can watch and chat without registering.

When booting up PsychOS486, which image would you prefer to see? I'm limited to using the classic 16 CGA colors for the boot image. Tools used were the 'lss16toppm' command, #gimp and then the 'ppmtolss16' command. If you've ever looked inside of an older GNU/Linux iso and saw a logo.16 file, that is what these images are.

Meet "Nimhy and Staples." I'm thinking about giving PsychOS a mascot. Nimhy is a half lab-rat, half penguin that escaped, along with his best friend "Staples," which is actually just a surgical staple that fell out one day. The scar on his stomach is shaped like a Psi symbol and it is blue because I'm an XFCE fan, as well as the original symbol for PsychOS is a Psi symbol in the shape of a leaf blowing in the wind on top of a blue circle/sphere. This is because the first code-name ever given to PsychOS during the 2.x series was called "Autumn," hence the leaf. License is CC BY-NC-ND.
