cronk is running on - let me know if it's weird.

Also, should there be like a server account (or should I make, like, a TECT Info account?) for announcements related to the server itself? Especially given that the server has to run updates once in a while, etc.

Random observation as far as I've been able to tell, no private operator group has done what I'd be doing if I had a million dollars and put in to buy a couple Viewliner II railcars after Amtrak gets done. If they can get in on Amtrak's deal, they're pretty cheap per unit, and you'd know Amtrak has tested them with its trains and should be willing to pull them.

Is it really that hard for y'all hosers to accept that people *want* targeted advertising? Anecdotally, more people are in favor than they are apathetic about it (but not by much).

If you want to continue your "rarr soshul meedya bad!" tirade, you need to convince them; show them that their information is indeed being sold (thus proof) and demonstrate how it can be used in ill will.

Otherwise, everyone is excited how much more relevant things are getting to them while we fight a losing battle.

Hey idly if i just leave my mastodon feed showing in a web browser tab will it just like auto-refresh? I need some more post-apocalypse in my house and tablets mounted to the walls showing social feeds would be a great ambiance piece.

Is there another web view for this? Would an iOS or Windows 8/10 client app do it?

big welcome to @colincornaby - an extremely great addition to the totally roaring mac/ios dev scene on mastodon where it's not still 2003 and we aren't still unironically replying to every post about anything apple-related about how much MAC's cost.

Casually, it's a Sunday and I feel like going out on the town.

I fire up my iMac and connect to the 'net and i go on line and I casually detract from Zip drives all afternoon, for no good reason.

On the forum now, someone takes it upon themselves to say "they have their detractors" of Iomega Zip drives. As if "detracting" from Zip were itself the goal. Because I just dislike Zips for no reason whatsoever.

Ok yeah cool that's at all an accurate representation /s

The 6200 has its detractors too, except those people are lying about it to make it sound worse than it really is.

Thoughts: We're entering a phase where old-ish Mac apps are going to start losing compatibility.

One possibility to create a stable but still secure environment for "older" apps would be to get Windows versions and either virtualize Windows 10 or install it on a machine and RDP into it.

That's pretty much it. I expect Creative Suite 6 will run on Windows 10 until basically the heat death of the universe.

Got a Surface Go! Putting some thoughts about it in a word document to post on the blog!

The biggest difference in this machine is definitely the size. It's like almost an inch narrower than the 3, so the keyboard is very very narrow. I've gotta get used to it by November.

project idea: teletype with emoji support

Last night I thought of something pertaining to what color you want the bike shed painted and I thought "oh that'll be a really clever social post in the morning" and I have NO idea what i was thinking about.

(disclaimer: I think that building a file server is the Wrong(TM) solution to this particular problem, but there's always the possibility that different people think they have the same problem even though they really don't.)

Also coryw: writing is hard, let's write sixteen different versions of the introduction to the overall introduction, because this is very much going to be a multi-part series.

<coryw, writing a blog post data archival> Huh actually i can see why most people with this need would think it's easier to just build a freeness server and eat the cost of electricity for their long term cool storage
