@eli_oat It's the sanwu mp3 decoder board, there's many shops that distribute it. It's the model with the 2 pin connector to solder a mat battery connector.
Fellow Fedinauts, I must call on you for help yet again!
My original idea was to dual-boot OpenBSD and Void Linux on my 112 GB SSD, which meant I had to first learn how to do a proper dual-boot.
After much reading, I decided that it would be nice to have the following partitioning scheme:
sda1 (2 GB) mounted as /boot
sda2 (64 GB)sda5 (12 GB) mounted as /var for both OSes (possibly nodev && noexec)
sda6 (4 GB) mounted as /tmp for both OSes (possibly nodev && nosuid && noexec)
sda7 (8 GB) mounted as / for OpenBSD
sda8 (16 GB) mounted as /usr for OpenBSD (possibly nodev)
sd9 (8 GB) to be used as / for Void
sd10 (16 GB) to be used as /usr for Void (possibly nodev)
sda3 (16 GB) for swap
sda4 (30 GB) mounted as /home for both OSes (possibly nosuid && nodev)
(Yeah, I know, that is a lot of partitions)
However, while I was reading through OpenBSD's documentation I hit a massive roadblock: the filesystem.
What I have gathered is:
OpenBSD requires FFS on its partitions
Void Linux cannot work with FFS partitions
What do you suggest that I do? Is there a way for me to make this work, or should I just install OpenBSD and maybe run Void in a VM/form a USB?

Need to print from ed(1)?
Depending on your system configuration:
w !a2ps -o - | lpr
If your text is some form of markup, you can convert it in the process:
w !pandoc --from markdown --to pdf
Additionally, if you want to print just a subset of the current file, that works as well
This all assumes that you're using a glass TTY, since if you're using a hard-copy output, you're already printing. ;-)
Video on using ed(1)
Peter Kotrčka put together this video (in Slovak but with captions in English)
The other ed(1) video he currently has
is Slovak only, not yet captioned in English. But he promises more ed videos in the queue, with new ones having English captions.

Hello, fellow federated librarians and followers!
I'm working on a project and have a favour to ask: Could you send me a scan or a good picture of the *front* of your library card, please? It's especially helpful if the card is in decent condition, but I'll take what I get!
More on the project later, I promise! 🙂

I've written a guide on how to setup a @nextcloud server. This has been a lot of work, as I've tried to be as verbose as possible.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
