@dsalo yeah, everything I've heard from folks doing DV transfer regularly is that the dongle-on-dongle-on-dongle approach still works even to get things into USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports; but it just sounds like a troubleshooting nightmare to me
if I knew *anything* about hardware hacking that would be super fun to try to take an old PCI FireWire expansion card and try to shrink the design down to this Framework, this is a cool project
@VickyRampin what's your graphics card + driver situation?
seems like it could either be an upstream Zoom client + Ubuntu 22.04 thing or an Nvidia driver + Ubuntu 22.04 thing, a couple suggestions that might be worth trying in here:
@joe I'll have to give it a shot in a VM! I still have some sample flux images from some Apple II floppies the Beinecke was struggling with, I was always curious how AppleSauce might handle them
@joe oooh I didn't realize it was like the Kryoflux or FluxEngine client software and you could use without hardware. Is it still macOS-only?
Have any reMarkable users played with rmfakecloud? Seems like what I've been wanting to sync my tablet in a meaningful way to my Nextcloud, but a little nervous about it
Also curious what kind of hardware folks run it on. Raspberry Pi? Could it maybe run on the same VPS my Nextcloud is already on?
I finally pieced together all the tutorials that folks on the birdsite linked me on APIs, a GUI tool that makes (some) visual sense to me, someone else's Python script, and some half-baked/auto-generated documentation into a successful GET request on an EaaSI deployment and I'm so stunned I forgot what to do next
A quirk of our apartment is that our landlord provides and controls the wifi (he's a WFH San Francisco expat tech manager of some sort) - nice in that he shouldered the cost/brunt of getting both our households set up with the highest-tier service option available (covered with rent) and set up a good mesh network, downside is that I don't have router control ergo can't set up all the weird home servers I want
Frankly not sure whether I ever did a proper #introduction post, so making one I can pin:
Hello, new and seasoned fediverse! My name's Ethan, I live in central Massachusetts in the U.S I'm also a struggling puzzle addict and I'm curious about tech. I post too much about work (as a digital archivist) so trying to post more about what I'm reading, watching, playing.

New EaaSI training module out, this time introducing what we mean by an "EaaSI network" and how we use OAI-PMH:
By god, I just might actually finish 8 of these before the end of the grant period as promised!
NYU Cinema Studies still using a VirtualBox setup I put together five years ago to access artists' CD-ROMs, giving me a pick-me-up after two weeks of wrangling with the uncertain future of a grant-funded term position 🤗
give this to me immediately:
We used to have this debate in grad school: if they are two sides of the same coin (conceptually encompassing different sets of activities and concerns but at some level useless without the other), what's coin called
No, this is not a post about Wordle, and yes, this is a post about Wordle.
