God i'm so happy niche devices are getting funded
Actually OSX has two different ways to pipe apps together, they're really handy and powerful but I'm always surprised by how little they get used. One is UI based, trying to be accessible to end users (Automator), and the other uses a scripting language (AppleScript).
I'm genuinely intrigued by these calls to rebuild the future as a by-the-people-for-the-people retrocomputing DIY FOSS micro revolution, but I wonder how many folks actually understand how tough it is to support Unicode when building something from first principles of bits and bytes.
If your homebrew future tech assumes text is made up of 8-bit characters, you're building a world in which you can't communicate with most of the world and re-entrenching biases that have taken decades to overcome.

Stardew Valley on OpenBSD is a thing! Found a fix for the save/load bug! Thanks-no-thanks MonoGame for shipping all kinds of system dll that messed things up...
Now I can have my own Puffy farm!
Thanks for everyone's advice on the way... They were all pieces in the puzzle of trial and error!

Today has involved a lot of messing with OSes:
- Configure systemd-boot as boot manager instead of rEFInd, which mysteriously no longer works (on XPS 15)
- Reinstall OpenBSD on XPS 15 after resizing partitions apparently broke the install
- Upgrade MacBook to High Sierra so I can upgrade to latest Xcode so I can do an update to SymbolMate
- Still to do: Re-install FreeBSD on XPS 15 since I had to nuke its partitions to resize others (and so I can make it a ZFS install)
