What do you think is the best method for getting CF/SD/IDE on #retro computers with 8 bit IDE controllers? I am looking at the Lo-tech, but open to other options
Been mining #Ethereum for the past two days, I will have made one cent worth of it some time in the next few hours
Watching Die Hard
I need to get a laptop with a built in floppy drive, #linux does not want to play nice with the external one that I have, it either takes 20 minutes to copy a few kilobytes or won't mount the disk at all
Problem: My laptop keeps going into sleep mode, pausing the download of the Monero blockchain.
1. Access power settings, uncheck a box.
2. Run a process in the background that keeps all cores running at 100% utilization, thus preventing the computer from sleeping
You can probably guess which one I chose.
I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.
This is a volunteer-run community administered by @floppy, and hosted by Mastohost in the UK. Please support our running costs by joining the Open Collective and becoming a backer. Thanks go to our existing backers - this place exists because of them!
