Felt an earthquake this morning! My loft bed is very sensitive to vibrations, so it started shaking pretty hard after I heard a weird noise, like an explosion from far away. M5.4 50km from here

I also am on my third attempt at installing 98SE, because I keep having driver issues. I have to wait 30 minutes for the ethernet driver to be sent over infrared again each time; at least everything is ready on the webdav folder

I moved the WebDAV server i was running on my main rig to a more permanent place on my actual server. I now have a LAN-only shared folder on port 98 to share things between old windows laptops

Now running a WebDAV server in Docker on my main machine to serve files as a shared folder on Windows 98; works really well!

Infrared update: Wifi drivers have failed, but Ethernet works so I finally got an alternative to infrared for sharing files

Infrared update: I got the sound and motherboard drivers in, so I get the nice startup sound but still no USB :/ trying to send ethernet and wifi drivers.

@kas (re: infrared) aaaand it just failed! let's try again, because I have no other way of sending drivers to the win98 laptop because it lacks USB, ethernet and wireless drivers…

@kas (re: infrared) very slowly, it's at 86% after over 47 minutes of transferring, but it works! I heard XP screaming a few times about loosing the connection, the sound it makes when this happens is really scary

Currently transferring 72 MB of drivers from an IBM ThinkPad T23 running XP Pro to a T42 running 98, over infrared. First time ever using infrared!

@von (re: bujo) A separate work bujo can help you properly segment work and private life, which is important to relax. But a bujo might just be too heavy; try maybe the dash-plus system, or just a notebook with an in...

@von (re: bujo) I wouldn't recommend managing anything work-related in a bujo if you need to share anything you're doing with others, since it's paper-based; collaboration is easier on task management apps

@von (re: bujo) Well it's up to you, I personally do not manage work stuff in a bujo since we have trello boards, etc., but I know that sharing a bujo for both personal stuff and work stuff has some risks: if there i...

@kas (re: mosquitoes) Also just to be curious I laid in bed for two hours with gloves (itchy gloves, argh), so the only uncovered part was my face. The mosquito landed on my nose!

@kas (re: mosquitoes) I know, just wanted to joke for a bit. And you mentioned the wrong person :p
[10 days ago]
I noticed mosquitoes only ever bite me on my hands and feet. If everything other than my face is covered, they never bite me. I did not know my face looked THAT bad

@von @johanbove (re: bulletjournal) I am in my 4th year and 4th notebook of bullet journaling, tried ~13 billion productivity/organization apps/tips/tools/whatever, and I wrote over...

@von @johanbove (re: bulletjournal) But yeah you really should try handwriting, because if you are a good typist then typing is faster than handwriting, so you have to slow down and...

@von @johanbove (re: bulletjournal) I feel like you might need a diary more than a bullet journal to process your thoughts. You can write long-form entries in a bullet journal, but ...

I don't think I announced it here yet: my twtxt registry CLI is now available on PyPI https://pypi.org/project/twtxt-registry-client/ (pip install twtxt-registry-client). Usage example: twtxt-registry http://twtxt.tilde.institute/api tweets. Docs: http...

Reminds me of ~vilmibm who dubbed twitter, mastodon and the like as RCVS systems (Reverse-Chronological Void Shouting).
[5 weeks ago]
twtxt sometimes feels like when you are getting started on a twitter/mastodon-like social network with zero followers: shouting into a complete void. Except with twtxt the only way to change that feeling is to sometimes receive mentions.

This evening's tech question on tilde.town: when running `dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null`, looking for the block size with the fastest speed and comparing speeds between computers, what are we actually benchmarking?

@kas (re: Usenet) I guess Groups is just easy to find on search engines and gives a more modern UI for NNTP. I have never found any alternatives for it.

@kas I do still read some newsgroups like comp.lang.python or uk.railway, but most of them are still active via Google Groups.

One of the things I love about Windows on laptops is that you can close the laptop's lid to make it suspend while it is shutting down. When you open it again, it restores from suspend, then shuts down.

My twtxt registry API client is up: https://gitlab.com/Lucidiot/twtxt-registry-client/ - no error handling, no parsing/beautiful outputting, no docs, but it works!
[2.4 months ago]
Has nobody even done a twtxt registry client yet? Using curl to query the API gets tiring.
