Hello. I'm Samuel Hodgkins. I'm some random person from Britain that isn't particularly interesting or special but I do have some interests. There's #computing - usually with #linux or another *nix (and some interest in #retrocomputing ), #programming - such as #smalltalk or #lisp and sometimes #gaming. I have a rarely updated site that mostly serves as a blog but is also a wiki. I like Toad from Mario and this is shown in my custom avatar.
Elsewhere someone used JSLinux to run an old Windows application run in the browser. Result: https://i.imgur.com/SDxS3Zr.png
So yesterday I obtained additional non-SD storage for my #raspberrypi (specifically a pi3). The first store had 16GB stick for £9.99, so I looked for a better deal. Another store had 32GB for slightly less than that, but alas it was out-of-stock but not marked as such, so instead I took the alternative of 2x16GB sticks for a little over £10. As a result I'm now unsure if I should have a 32G stripe or a 16GB redundant mirror...
Right, I'm not insane enough to go straight to the most recent #mastodon release. The 2.5.0 release notes make that a good first step, after taking the advised database dump.
So when I read about bitcoin falling recently It reminded me I had $40 or so in leftover Bitcoin. I decided to send most of it to @SDF to get ARPA membership (even though I probably won't use most of the features it provides) because I felt like it. Remaining part (assuming no issues with the former) is going to the internet archive.
Well, it's been almost a year but I think either now or shortly will be a good time to get back onto the whole #mastodon thing. I guess I have quite a few updates to do!
(I did the answer as a separate toot: it's Firefox, which as of 63/64 now needs it for the build process.)
Great, it's apparently a dependency of #firefox 63. Guess I'll have to keep it.
So I'm doing a @world update on #gentoo and it wants to install nodejs. I don't know why, so it's time to find out.
I've really fallen off the #mastodon wagon huh?
Took a random look at the licenses for the SkyHD box. Apparently as of 2016 it includes #freebsd 'file management software'. Wonder what that is.
