Hey all, I'm back from the virtual grave! If you followed @bb010g@a.weirder.earth, you'd probably want to follow me again here. I toot mostly about random tech stuff (which I'm trying to be more regular about now), with a focus on making computers more reliable and sustainable (defensive programming, alternative UX, etc).

If you followed me before, a boost would be appreciated to help other previous followers catch this.

going to try actually using my cr.t account for a while; weirder.earth is nice but I don't feel as strong of a connection with the public TL as I used to. for the foreseeable future, @bb010g will probably mostly be used for announcements / more formal posts / whatever I feel fits more there, but the bulk of my posting should be here at @bb010g, so follow me again here if you want bad ideas about moving away from current technology and programming.

this involves following a fair amount of people again, so sorry for the notifications.

github.com/davidgiven/cowgol is a neat compiler that can self-host on 8-bit micros, i.e. the Commodore 64 or ZX Spectrum.

the LGBT standard was refreshed to LGBTQ and most recently LGBTQIA, but you may see the following proprietary extensions in older equipment:

LGBT+
LGBT-X
mini-LGBT
LGBT-HD
LGBT 2000
LGBT for Workgroups
i.LGBT
ASUS® LGBTQ Boost™
LGBTQ.11ac
μLGBTQ (embedded only)
LGBTQ Creative Cloud

there's nothing quite like the feeling of ideas bad enough where the prospect of pursuing them seems like a route to going mad with esoteric power

NixOS is extremely flawed, but holy crap if it isn't the most legitimately futuristic feeling "traditional" OS I've used. you can essentially time travel and pull packages from *the future* if you need them.

this still is awesome every time. :crt_w_green_lines:

I should probably finish this install before the Live CD uptime hits 24 hours

New blogpost!!

This one was, uh, really tiring for me to write and to edit. I hope you check it out.

it's been how many years and I still have no solid idea how I want to interact online

I'm just kinda floundering around in the big web ocean,..meeting good peeps and learning yes, but still irregularly and improperly contributing and with a poor sense of where I should be spending my time at a given moment, with no clarification in sight

me: my timeline got busy at some point, and I'm not quite sure when that happened
also me: *follow* ooh, they look cool *follow*
