My Mac Mini kernel panics every time it’s on. I cannot comprehend how people use this OS. Didn’t happen pre-Catalina...

I turned on my Windows machine this morning only to be spammed by “the New Edge” with a literal full screen ad and now Edge icons everywhere. WTF?

Hey fediverse!

I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.

I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.

My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.

Drastic speed improvements to my LR-87 (or @gemini) client related to laying out text with long paragraphs. Dumb renderer also no longer displays its "END OF FILE" marker.

Something just blew in my DEC VR241 monitor: no picture and it smells bad.

Episode 65 of the Jeff Reads His Book is finally up! Have a listen and write in with your suggestions for fantasy inn and pub names!

Delicious way to end the day, especially since I ran out of birthday beer this week.

Upgraded and doesn't work anymore because is a steaming heap of garbage.

I actually started an SDL renderer for the LR-87 @gemini client, but I'm not sure if I'll finish it. I guess it would bring my client to macOS, but does anyone care? I'm guessing no...

Still no bookmarks or history, so it's not the most pleasant browser.

Finished some fun updates to my LR-87 @gemini client to support the new quote line styling and making the Windows GUI faster and more pleasant to use.

But memory for a 486? AGP graphics cards? All these PCI Ethernet cards? Kind of worthless...

I only plan to maintain my stockpile of ST-506 drives and cabling, though the drives themselves are basically dead at this point.

Oh, and I have a shit-ton of SCSI equipment still.

Also trashed a pair of prototype ATI Radeon AGP cards with lots of identifying info on them. Best to dispose of them even if they are 15 years old.

Just threw out a pair of IBM 71MB full height ESDI hard drives that I had explicitly written “Not compatible with Rainbow” not the side. WTF was I ever going to do with those big bastards?

Well, CMake didn’t even configure on the , so it is losing its spot on the desk for a while. Back to storage!

The only reason I'm trying to build CMake (which I despise) on my was so that I could build json-c on my so that I might try building the nanotodon Mastodon client on my .

If all that worked, a GEM Mastodon client based on nanotodon would be neat to try, but I'm not even close at this point.

Mastodon is a distributed social network of sorts, and this server hosts a tiny instance of it.
