The DECSTATION board now has some memory - not really enough to do much of anything useful - but enough to determine whether or not the board works, in theory - I just have to hack up a power connector and a video cable and we'll see if it works! - But first! Let's measure out all the caps we can find, and make sure none are shorted. ;; At some point, I'll put up a page on my gopherhole on some of this stuff, and some current instructions on how to get Ultrix up and running in simh. Happy Hacking!

Insert found in IRIS universe (the magazine of visual computing) - a nice physical zine full of SGI goodness.

Random crazy idea of the day: Drawing sprites on a grid and calculating the byte values by hand is kind of like some arcane occult numerology shit where you add up all the numbers to get to something meaningful - you could reverse this and start with a bunch of auspicious numbers and reverse them into sprites.

Forget DAS BOOT....
have MAX BOOT instead.

(Was talking on irc with @cat about 𝒶𝑒𝓈𝓉𝒽𝑒𝓉𝒾𝒸𝓈 and remembered the time i decided to photograph my boot because it looked neat in the blacklight - the ratio of aesthetic to mundaneness of the subject depicted is way way off here haha)

excluding the baud.baby logo, this is by far my favorite ASCII art heading I've done

talking with @rmgr tonight it came up that I don't particularly want to make zines, what I really want to do is make covers, so maybe I should make a zine of zine covers? 🤷‍♀️

this is the cover of the Japanese phone zine which now may or may not eventuate...

this turned out to be a much bigger PITA than I was anticipating and I can't find my stapler but now I have a Very Lovely™ print copy of equa's Imaginary Landscapes zine; video.hackers.town/w/wQNJvKEqY

some chatter on IRC around printing ASCII art so I'm playing with ideas 👀 (works by @jns and myself)

If anyone missed it last night, I've launched a BBS (yes, an old-school BBS, text interface, you access it via telnet) to act as a chill social hangout for #trans folk.

Since it just went live, it's very small, but if we can grow it into a cozy little community, I think it could be pretty great.

If you're interested in the details, contact me directly.

Boosts are also appreciated!

Wonder how much art we're missing out on because artists have to struggle to survive.

@jns @cat @ihnn @tomasino @dokuja

'quite the step up from Flash' aka ascii animation.

(I'll put the script up when I'm at the machine where I left my laundromat keys. this was surprisingly easy to make, let's talk ideas on how to make it less shitty.)

In the meantime:

(I tagged the washers I know of on mastodon, 'xcusme me, if I forgot anyone. And @ihnn, who supplied the music. I don't remember the name of the song; I downloaded it a year ago and my file naming standards are not standardised at all.)

#unixsurrealism #laundromat #runbsd #art(?)

Now I can print zines the proper way! https://video.hackers.town/w/eZsMN3CqhvCQX3UuzJ81ch

howdy it’s #bandcampfriday

I make remixes, edits, and DJ mixes as Dads FM at dadsfm.bandcamp.com

I recently released Volume 2 of #YSides, my mixes of rare, weird, or obscure #yachtrock. Volume 2 is all covers, and it’s pretty great!

I also have stickers and shirts available, worldwide.
