UPDATE: New York has denied Greenidge Generation's permit renewal request, stating that the renewal "would be inconsistent with or would interfere with the attainment of statewide greenhouse gas emission limits".

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at https://mch2022.org
Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is a little, seemingly empty, patch of the sky in the Southern Hemisphere. Astronomers first pointed the Hubble Telescope at it for a full 11 days back in 2003, and just let the light trickle in. Since then, a number of follow-up campaigns have added infrared and ultraviolet light to the original observations. The result is stunning!
RC-BOX BBS is turning 1 year this month - time to celebrate!
Would you believe it? Indeed this month marks the 1st anniversary of RC-BOX BBS, the world's first and (currently only) #rc2014 based buelltin board system.
And what an effort it took to get the all the CP/M tools customized, configured and compiled / assembled.
...and than the need for that "DCD line" hack on the SIO/2 board!
The initial install used the "MBBS" software for CP/M instead of "RBBS4" but once I found the BDS-C code for "RBBS4" I adapted that code to make use of some special #rc2014 hardware modules and switched the system over to "RBBS4".
Since then, 1164 calls were received and 84 messages have been posted to the "General" message file (message file ID #2).
There are at least two or three regular callers which is a lot, given the plain nature of the system (and the general unwillingness of people to dial in to BBSes, except for their own 😋)
