Retro nostalgia and why my new website looks like Window 9x (2019)
(submitted by cardamomo)
Before going away for a week I decide to risk it and do preliminary testing of my 8Bit version of the #RTL8019 #ISA #networkcard card (https://github.com/Manawyrm/ISA8019).
The results are promising: lucky me, otherwise I would have had it in my mind for a whole week, gnawing at my sanity. #homebrewcomputing #retrocomputing
... even though it is surely evil and unholy to install a non-free binary driver for this ethernet card...
... it was a package from SiS, from 2001.
And it actually works, 20 years later, on a system that is open source, and is _not_ windows.

Just a friendly reminder:
as per the Protect Children's Movies Act of 2031, your brain is, in this case, a derived work of the Intellectual Property of The Walt Disney Company.
As the recently updated license terms state, using it for any sort of criticism, commentary or inappropriate reporting on the People's Republic of China is now (and always was) a severe breach of terms and therefore constitutes copyright infringement.
Pleased with RMS’ statement! I appreciate how he’s handled the situation. It’s my fault for jumping to conclusions, which started this whole mess.
My apologies Mr. Stallman, you’re a good man at heart, you just struggle socially, which I can identify with myself.
#Emacs about to get #JIT compilation for good:
Mixed feelings for me: “woohoo!” comes to mind, and also “what about Guile?” — Conway’s law applies! I’m sure it’ll make me a happy user anyhow. :-)
"ohh let's just update Devuan; it shouldn't be a big deal"
2 hours later:
"why am I looking at real fresh kernel patches about DRM_IOCTL_SET_MASTER permission issues?"
(apparently, my excellent "xinit -- vt1" session manager is now broken because it isn't root enough; back to lightdm for the time being...)
