so in the world of text based web browsers there is w3m, lynx, links and so many more. most do not do JavaScript or CSS in any way... enter browsh.. it isn't as resource and bandwidth friendly as the others (it uses headless Firefox) but it is a terminal browser that does css, JavaScript and html5... will have some fun with this. :D


wish I had taken french instead of German in highschool... the de-googlify/alternative software looks soooo good. but many of the project pages are in French only it seems....

still, did try WallaBag which was brilliant until my hosting service decided to restrict those kinds of installations to a higher tier.

It is true there is no Twitter style verification on Mastodon. However, you can link to another website with which you have edit rights. If you create a mutual rel="me" link from Mastodon Preferences to that other website, you will get a green tick on your profile page, like this:

It doesn't prove anything about you other than you have access to a Mastodon account, and also have access to the other website, but that does have value.

for the fans / writers living the TUI life (and George R.R. Martin enthusiasts) : there is an effort to bring WordStar to modern machines.

day zero of trying MXLinux.
do far so good. :)

Short stories are great. A brief fantasy, a daydream, in the middle of a hectic day. So a short story vending machine[1] is a brilliant idea! It reminds me a bit of the Japanese/Chinese sms novel[2].



the other keyboard made by the same company seems to be aimed at the medical industry. A "flat piece of glass with etched keys" made to be easily disinfected.

So I got a bluetooth mechanical keyboard. Not sure why the "Bastron" was marketed for the modern business woman that worked in cafe's (it is big, heafty, and loud to type on) but its definitely a step up from the microsoft wedge (of which I am also a fan).

so great putting names and faces to software/projects in the FOSS world!

a great source for 8bit enthusiasts and those thinking about trying their hand at old school game programming in C or assembly :

The new version of is brilliant! The ability to setup a basic onion webpage with the click of a button... going to have a lot of fun with this!

might be of interest as well... at this point I'm going to have to bookmark this thread to refer back to it later.

continuing on the idea of using as a cross platform game publishing system... here is a collection of game creation software that in theory should work (for those of us not fully competent in x86 assm / C / C++ / etc):

Though granted, the response to declaring your gender as undecided is decidedly... old fashioned.

Here is a link to the Internet Archive copy (playable in the browser):

Because whom doesn't want to declare their gender as "undecided", your education as "master in competitive drinking" and rise to the top of the Might Microcomputer Corporation (MMC)? xD

Found it!

Executive Suite by Armonk Corporation (1982). :D

quick to the crowd: Trying to rememer the name of an old game from the DOS era. It is basicly multiple choice, you are a corporate employee for a computer firm. You work through your yearss in tthe company and based on which departtments you want to work at, how you handle the encounters (ex. you find some computer parts laying under a dripping vent, do you move them, leave it or find someone to blame) you can end as the CEO... Anyone got a clue about the name?

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.
