"[free software is] free as in 'free puppies', not 'free beer'. Adopting open source solutions, like adopting a puppy, involves some time spent on care and feeding."

, found this passage yesterday while reading Trevor Owens's "the theory and craft of digital preservation" and I won't stop thinking about it for a while, probably

A spaceship landed
An alien emerged
It carried
A punnet of plums

It put them
In the icebox

Ready
For your breakfast

It waved before leaving
So cheerful
And warm

@halcy Highly disappointing. I've heard the same from other too. I'm starting to think this entire thing is a scam.

What if the promise of 5G connectivity is just a scam to get people to get vaccinated?

New phone day, yass

Blowing up old phone, boo

my take on the whole "scaling open source: don’t" thing is not "crucify UX" but "make something that makes your friends, specifically your technologically-disenfranchised friends, better off." because that seems to me to be the union between UX and technical empowerment

So you know how the 1541 has a 6502 in it? (it's basically a computer in a disk drive, but it has no display...)

So um

Here's a demo, and a writeup about the demo, on how to make a demo for a 1541 disk drive.

and have it display stuff.

Um.

"wow."

Mind you the start of the demo showed cutting cables and I was very "NOOOooOOOO don't damage the equipment" so I hope people make custom cables instead of damaging cables but that's me

Found a smegging smegazine in the smegging loft, but smegging mice have been at it

since doing the byte battles (youtube.com/watch?v=KIv5N-nV_v) back in may, i've been really aware of how beneficial it can be to rewrite all your code every time you work on it

not kidding. obviously it doesn't work for everything, but it it helps me internalise what's going on
