I originally wanted to run OpenBSD on it, but someone told me that the ARM branch isn't in a great spot right now. Maybe when I get more ARM under my belt I can help with porting

Even found a way to chroot into the sdcard with qemu, if I need to install something with aptitude

Set up a Pi Zero last night with build-essentials, emacs, nethack, no internet, and no display server. It's been very cathartic to run wild and hack with C and ARM assembly, getting help through man pages and header files exclusively

Technical Note: We originally wrote this article in Word, but then we converted it to Latex to make it look more like science.

My bouncer kept trying to reconnect after I got banned, so that probably made it look even worse

Uh, whoops. Just got home from school and apparently I'm permabanned from SDF IRC for "server attacks"?

One of them even has the receipt from when he bought it in '98

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.

Guess I picked a good time to submit my server to Floodgap, "(updated 1 April 2018: no fooling)"

@ckeen All your posts about Gopher inspired me to finally give it a shot and I'm absolutely hooked, with plans to set up a gopherd on my server when I get home tomorrow. Your phlog and phlogroll have been a great starting point for my explorations.

Oh hey, I made it into one of the recordings. Face reveal.

DOSBox has a pretty nice debugger. At least compared to the other dogshit I've been wrestling with this morning.

Wtf it's snowing and I just saw lightning
