Made a minor update to the BBS page of canerduh.com. Now includes a more complete mini howto for connecting to the BBS with NetRunner.
Probably unnecessary for most people here but I've had a few people ask me from time to time. Now I can just point them here instead of explaining it every time. https://www.canerduh.com/bbs.html #bbs
Not sure I'm talented enough to make a full clone but I've got the basics at least! And some ideas as to how to get a little further along. Writing this in MPL (Mystic Programming Language).
It would be cool to do this in pure Pascal but my Pascal skills are not strong enough to use a BBS Door library or to deal with the ANSI/CP437 stuff manually.
Got a little perspective this week.
A city councilor here passed and it's very likely COVID-related. He was also known to oppose mask mandates and it was VERY unlikely that he was vaccinated. It's easy to judge someone under these circumstances. Here's more of the story though.
H owned and ran a local grocery store for years. And he used that and his connections to give A LOT to our local food bank.
In his grocery store, he always supported local businesses and their products.
He also ran the food bank until he became a councilor. He helped create the brown bag lunch program here to make sure no kids go hungry.
When I first heard about his passing I scoffed. Then I learned about all of this. So yes, I REALLY don't like his behavior regarding COVID, I can't deny that he also had a huge positive impact on this city for years.
Today I had a headhunter reach out to me for an IT Manager job in a town a few hours away. A new first for me! Unfortunately:
1. I’m not willing to move and the commute is too far.
2. Really not interested in being management. I don’t want to be in charge of people. Let me put my head down and work, and occasionally provide me with the IT tools I need to do my job.
I watch over the stuff with blinky lights. Pretty boring and entirely unremarkable.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
