@ajroach42 this is fantastic! What is striking here is that this masterpiece does not specifically target a retrocomputing platform...it is intended to run on any system with limited resources.

I would really like to see a more general "neoclassical computing" movement grow out of retrocomputing. Something espousing the creation of new, open, small and simple (yet useful) computers that evoke the truly "personal" computer era.

Anarchist, anti-capitalist retrocomputing seems like exactly your cuppa.

If you'd like to hear my medicore attempts at making music, some of them are available here: sound.mountaintown.video/chann

In the future, I'll probably actually play and maybe even sing.

Cool, fixing this means turning on "Anonymous API access" which sounds spooky.

But I fixed it.

Yeah, looks like you can't actually view the contents of even public libraries if you're not logged in?

I don't like that. I might just not use funkwhale.

Not loving that the default behavior of funkwhale is a login screen for unregistered users.

Lemme see what I need to do about that.

So I managed to get GPT-3 to generate new Victorian handkerchief flirting codes.

I hope you find them useful for adding subtext to your next zoom call

Hi! I'm Andrew.

I do devops/SRE now, but in a past life I was a web developer and sysadmin, and I made websites for companies that didn't have much money or technical skill.

I'm good at that stuff.

Do you want a website for your: Resume? Art? Band? Videos? Music? Podcast? Blog? Short stories? Fan Fiction? Fake Company? Etc?

I'll be happy to show you the ropes, for free, and meet you at any skill level, and budgets ranging from actually free up to very cheap to keep the thing online.
