Emboldened by my escapades with the Mac Plus, I opened up my Commodore 1902a monitor and freshened up a bunch of solder joints. It's no longer flaking out on me, and dare I say the picture looks better? Probably just my imagination there.

It's alive!!! Macintosh Plus with a 16MHz 68030 accelerator!

I've had this Macintosh Plus since the early 2000s and it's never worked quite right.

Until now.

Bonus: turns out it has a 68030 accelerator and just needs the driver.

Finally opened up my Mac Plus to fix it. Re-flowed the solder joints on the analog board. Found a 16MHz 68030 accelerator in it! Re-seated the SIMMs and the accelerator after cleaning them with Deoxit Gold.

It's alive!!!

I just listed one of my Mechboard 64 mechanical keyboards for the Commodore 64 on eBay ebay.com/itm/153970790296

Replace that mushy OEM keyboard with some Gateron Yellow switches!

My SD card (FloppyEmu) is apparently too fast of a disk drive for Ultima I.

@Tarale you have my sympathy. We're STILL working on it here.

Is Adrian even a "web server" if it doesn't have access logging?

Well, that was fun to implement.

I imagine this week's SpaceX launch will be a successful crewed Dragon launch or a successful test of the escape system.

Adrian "web server for fonts" release 2.2.0 is out. Now with support for etags to save your & your visitors' bandwidth.

These are difficult times. You need that bandwidth for Netflix, not downloading the same fonts again.

Is anyone working on a libre / fediverse replacement for #Giphy yet? I've had a passing interest in creating GIF reactions that don't exist yet.

Welp, deno sure got my interest after an hour of messing with it.

import {rate, grade} from "raw.githubusercontent.com/dave"

console.log(grade("The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs"))

@ajroach42 could you get me an idea of shipping costs to 02131? I'm definitely interested

@ajroach42 how much do you want for the 3.5" drive for the C64?

It finally happened! Adrian web server for fonts is now available as binaries for Linux & MacOS, both 32 & 64 bit versions.

Download v2.1.1 under "releases" Built using goreleaser so Windows binaries are right around the corner.


Had a weird dream the other night that the Living Computer Museum in Seattle was doing a live stream walkthrough of their exhibits, ending with a demo of a rare prototype HP Wendy-123 that ran Windows 3.1 and AmigaOS 3.1 but it was all a viral marketing thing for a new Batman movie 🤦‍♂️
