It is utterly insane that wearing masks to reduce the spread of a very deadly and highly communicable respiratory disease is even the slightest bit controversial.

Fixed the RISC PC Econet card. Swapped a 74HCT123 for a 74LS123. Looks like Acorn made a howler back in 1995.
Now I have Advanced Level 4 Fileserver 2.12 Demo (and Level 4 1.33 as a fallback) and InterTalk running on the RPC, and the A4000 can send and receive email :D

I can't say I'm impressed with the 2005-era Sony MPF920 Z/131 drive. Loses bits like coins down the back of the sofa.
1: MPF920Z/131 (APR2005 datecode)
2: MPF920E/131 (9908 datecode)

Marvellous! Prestel pages from a cassette tape recorded four decades ago, reconstituted and now presented as a window on what arguably was the forerunner of the internet. They were heady days indeed twitter.com/johnnewcombeuk/sta

If you ever wondered what the 26-pin Econet card I/O connector in the Acorn A4 is... I've identified it. It's a Hirose DF11. Part numbers are --
Contacts - DF11-2428SCA
Housing - DF11-26DS-2C
R/A PCB header - DF11-26DP-2DS(52)

@mjg59@twitter.com Being a maintainer improved my career and I'm also reluctant to do it anyways.

We have a broken story for sustainable OSS, exacerbated by Linus-types creating a horrible culture. We should be pushing for fundemental change, but too many people who have benefited choose to uphold

Reddit is still full of people whose opinion of me is entirely formed by Linus swearing at me, so yeah. twitter.com/TheRegister/status

Does anyone know of a suitable integrated-magnetics RJ45 MagJack for the @cirruslogic@twitter.com CS8900A 5V Ethernet interface?
I'm trying to find one, but the sticking point is the 1CT:1.414 turns ratio on the transmit transformer.

I turn off the lights.

These bulbs are old, not the newer LEDs. There is a lingering glow as the hot tungsten filaments gradually cool.

I watch them as the room slowly goes dark.

A lingering glow... and then nothing.

I am exhausted, but I canโ€™t sleep.

A monster awaits. 1/

Not to be 'that guy' but the world needs to wake the fuck up about the fact that almost EVERY viral pandemic in the last DECADE has arisen as a direct result of our shitty industrial farming practices for the meat industry.

Wake the fuck up sleepy heads

Learned a very relatable term today: โ€œๅ ฑๅพฉๆ€ง็†ฌๅคœโ€ (revenge bedtime procrastination), a phenomenon in which people who donโ€™t have much control over their daytime life refuse to sleep early in order to regain some sense of freedom during late night hours.
