I'm now in the process of switching to a self hosted server for this fediverse stuff.
My new account is @firstname.lastname@example.org
I've finally managed to get a version of Retro's VM working under OpenBSD using system calls instead of linking with libc.
This has eluded me for a long time; I'm pleased to finally be able to proceed on this front as I'd prefer to avoid using libc when possible.
Next step is to figure out how to rewrite the NASM assembly in AT&T syntax so I can just use the standard toolchain on OpenBSD & FreeBSD...
Taking @vazub suggestion, this morning is dedicated to oolong.
At 8:30, I'm 14 oz in, with a second pot ready to go. I'm drinking a roasted oolong (# ZO20, from Upton Tea) My stock on this is a little past its prime, but it's still enjoyable.
(I'm overdue to order in a fresh batch of tea; I'm nearing the end of most of my varieties, other than some of the shóu.)
Today is a green tea day.
I started with genmaicha. I always enjoy this, though I initially had the water too hot, burning the tea slightly. Subsequent steeps were better.
Total: 25 oz.
Since lunch time I've been steeping sencha. It's good, but I find it to be more troublesome with steep times if I want to avoid bitterness.
Total: 20 oz.
I was planning to also have hōjicha, but discovered that my tin was empty. I'll check my reserves at home as I thought I still had plenty of this.
@technomancy Andrew is just playing the martyr, getting us to write better governance frameworks in a way he'd never have been able to achieve from the outside.
Today's #tea is a Chinese green from Upton Tea. I'm enjoying it; it has a pleasant astringency and a light vegetal taste.
It's been too long since I was drinking tea daily. Time to get back to that I think. I still find it relaxing to prepare and drink.
Background: I'm registering Retro as a project with Libera and need to make a decision regarding the channel name. On Freenode, we had been using #retro for 18 years, but this has occasionally caused confusion.
I'm going to try to document my #forth learning journey more. Here goes: https://rickcarlino.com/2021/06/01/til-how-retroforth-implements-deferred-behavior-html.html
I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as freenode, is in fact, Lee/freenode, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, leenode. leenode is not an IRC network, but rather a hollow shell of an IRC network being destroyed by Andrew Lee. Many IRC users connect to a ruined version of the freenode network every day, without realizing it.
andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.
This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.
https://archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.
here's an example log: https://gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5b1d18e964c581ef18ccb3a79f
boost this if you care about foss in any way.
So freenode just tried to take over my IRC channel and redirect to another one. I've removed the forwarding and private flags they turned on, but have no idea what their next move will be on this.
Anyone trying to discuss retroforth on irc should join #retro in libera, oftc, or hackint instead at this point. (I'm working on a bridge across these currently to facilitate easier conversation across servers).
