For HAM folks who don't have a Gopher client a HTTP version of my Remote Outdoor Off-grid Phlogging Challenge 2020 entry: http://hracka.org/~logout/phlog/2020-09-27_my_roophloch_2020_entry.txt
MacOS X Tiger was peak MacOS X
It seems to me that ever since Leopard, things have gotten worse in some way every release. Also, I think the obligatory yearly release it's been on has taken its toll.
Apple never had very good software quality, even when they were "Apple Computer." Becoming "Apple, Inc." didn't help any of this.
Becoming a subscription-based services company certainly bodes ill for software quality from Apple, Inc.
My ROOPHLOCH 2020 entry: Gopher, HAM radio, APRS and a nice evening on a hill.
My CB log from saturday evening. Just about an hour, whip antenna on car roof, FM, 4 W. I consider CB to still be alive!
I boldly moved into the information era and created for me a personal home page on this thing called world-wide-web! It conforms to HTML 2.0 as specified in RFC 1866. Even though it's quite simple, I hope you like it!
Starting August 2020 I decided to cut the amount of my hobbies a bit and refocus to just some of them. It's because when you do too many things at once, you don't do any of them properly. As I always considered ZX Spectrum, the activities and people around it to be the centre of my life, I started with that. So right now the czech ZX Spectrum scene has again a diskmag after almost twenty years ( http://restore.zxm.cz - czech only). Then I patched the Prometheus assembler to work on BSDOS but without the DMA (it's already released on demodisk with the Speccy 2010 clone firmware v1.2.8 - https://github.com/mborik/speccy2010/releases). I also managed to get the last Spectrum I didn't have yet - the +3. Several more things are in progress...
Connected second LCD to the Duron 950 I'm using since the start of July as my main desktop and did a full buch of usefull sthings: repaired filesystem on microSD card from my RPi2B, built zxspectrum-utils, configured FUSE emulator to suppord Didaktik 80 disk drive, converted one of the three remaining unconverted X-Mag diskmags for ZX Spectrum and started to create HTML version of it. All that while listening to Kohina chiptune radio and occasionally chatting on Jabber and IRC. The machine was all the time pretty responsive for almost 20-year-old piece of hardware.
I'm seriously thinking about writing a short series about digital minimalism and distraction-free environment on my phlog...
G3 goes to Mars!
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.
