I've written a implementation of the assembler I use for my virtual machine, so I can now build a new base image from within Retro. This gets me much closer to being able to self host all but the VM.

the "de" Editor, a blend of acme (Plan 9/Inferno) and vim

implemented in go


[2018-11-18 Sun] "Video My crush on GNU Guix"

Declarative Linux-Distributions wie Guix oder NixOS sind interessante Alternativen zu etablierten Linux-Distributionen. Vagrant Cascadian stellt Guix auf der DebConf 18 vor und vergleicht Guix mit Debian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2XS92qrLUc

IMP, NCP, Unix, ARPANET, IP, TCP: die Ursuppe dessen, was wir heute als Internet kennen, garniert mitt ein wenig Unix Folklore. Toller Vortrag, ich habe den Anfang Oktober live in Krakau gesehen, jetzt gibt's den endlich auch auf Youtube. Enjoy.

A backdoor is a vulnerability by definition. When Politicians demand backdoors to encryption, they are not asking us to choose between security and privacy. They are asking us to choose no security: tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-

#Gopher Clients
If you don’t have a dedicated gopher client, I’ll suggest using the text browser lynx.
As for dedicated gopher clients, I like VF-1 by @solderpunk. Requires Python.
For iOS devices, I’ll suggest the Gopher Client by Charles Childers, @crc
What would you recommend?

Cloudflare #DNS resolver now on stupidphones. blog.cloudflare.com/1-thing-yo

Read the comments, you will learn things about iOS, about the sad state of software development on connected objects (people use libraries without understanding them), on the hacks necessary to do something as simple as changing the DNS resolver...

"It's amazing to me that a book that came out in late 1983 is still technically relevant today; it's insane, but that's how seminal the whole UNIX idea was and how we still depend on everything it does [...] I'm sure you all know ... the entire Internet runs on UNIX, and it's popular world wide."

Rob Pike on "The History of UNIX" youtube.com/watch?v=_2NI6t2r_H

Excuse me while I go re-read my (ancient) copy of "The UNIX Programming Environment" which I've probably read close on 10 times!

Klaus Zobawa has ported Mecrisp-Stellaris (ARM) Forth to Cypress PSoC 4/5 Micro-controller systems. A port to PSoC 6 is in the works.

I just have added some PSoC 4/5 boards to the Micro-controller lend service of the German Forth Interest Group.

Source and files of Mecrisp for Cypress SoC can be found at

Discussion and additional information at
community.cypress.com/communit (search for "Forth")

Lending service for controller boards can be found at

allow-query-cache { any; };
allow-recursion { any; };

brauchst Du fuer eine Master-Zone nicht, die beiden Konfigurations-Optionen sind fuer Resolver-Konfigurationen.

Micro.blog is adding ActivityPub federation support and cross-posting to Mastodon manton.org/2018/11/07/microblo

I create an #XMPP MUC for people interested in #retro #hardware and #software: xmpp:retro@muc.heap.zone?join

Web chat: inverse.chat/#converse/room?ji

Please boost!

I feel like I don't explicitly state this often enough, but I want to see a future where most people are on federated social networks. Mastodon, Pleroma, Misskey, etc, instead of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Hey there!

In the northern hemisphere days are getting shorter and shorter.

Take your time to get outside and let the sun shine on you for a while.

It is important for your well being unless you have a medical condition that's against sunlight exposure.
