Soliciting general recommendations/ideas:
I am eventually going to start running a server running AppleShare IP 6 as a server for vintage Mac files, email, and web hosting.
I have a machine, I need a SATA card and some fresh 2TB disks, and to set it up.
I also need a name!
Any ideas? It would be on a subdomain of either stenoweb dot net or 68kmla dot org.
It was set up temporarily using v dot stenoweb dot net, to stand for "vintage".
If anybody needs an email account:
I run a server with Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint and some other file storage space on the domain stenoweb dot net.
Let me know if you'd like an account!
cronk is running on http://fd.stenoweb.net/SitePages/TECT.aspx - 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. #TECT

got back from ~3w on vacation and pulled my butterfree back from the pokeball plus to the game and it went from lv. 21 to lv. 47, with 9999 exp.
so uh.... it's 2x as powerful as everything I am now encountering.
on the other hand this is kind of nice and it seems like the level limits for your own pokemon are gone.

That said: I don't know if ARM will be the saviour anyone thinks it is/should-be. Apple's still Apple and issues like their refusing to sell any Mac with anything other than the highest performing storage in any given category is at the center of what made Macs become more expensive in the past few years.

I think most people, especially in the "vintage Mac" scene are wildly over-thinking the whole potential ARM Macs thing, and are using old generalizations based on older phones and devices like ancient iPads and things like the Surface RT to decide that ARM is unsuitable to a desktop-experience.
oops back to my normal life:
*goes on vacation for 2 weeks*
*finally signs onto vintage mac forum*
*posts 3 consecutive essays about ARM vs Intel in the Mac ecosystem*
I just got back from my Big Vacation for the year. I had a very good time and I'm likely going to post things about it for the coming few weeks.
I started running an archiveteam warrior VM on a system!
Good morning! I drove to the northeast USA to have what I am pretty sure is the most quintessentially northeastern experiences: ride Amtrak trains!

Hey uh is like sex illegal in Oklahoma or something? I didn’t go to it but there’s an adult store in Amarillo that to the best of my recollection is advertised along the entire route of 49, or at least west of Oklahoma City.
(Google says it is lgbtq+ friendly at least)
Good morning I pulled over to use the restroom and take a nap and now I’m very awake and perhaps even Extremely Online
