Putting some born-digital material into our terrible DSpace repo! It's all we've got so it's good enough until we reach that mythical replacement access system ❣ archivesspace.mit.edu/reposito

The way archivematica stores AIPs by breaking the UUID into subfolders has resulted in a wonderful one just called "beef"

The scanned source code for ELIZA is now publically available and CC0 (the first I'm hearing of this lolsob) sites.google.com/view/elizagen

omg [unrelated to last toot] the help text for the 7z "-r" flag: "Recurse subdirectories (CAUTION: this flag does not do what you think, avoid using it)"

This is a real error message from Archivematica, copied here in its entirety:

Before it was the MIT Media Lab it was the Architecture Machine Group, here's some pics of their office: dome.mit.edu/handle/1721.3/189

TIL MIT has an enterprise app for surplus inventory management. There are a total of 10 users and each user gets a ranking based on activity. Requested a Iomega Jaz drive that was posted 2 years ago, I am now ranked 7th in the app.

Documentation never ends but I guess it's good to share! Here's our combo digital/physical processing manual if curious about "the way we do it here": wikis.mit.edu/confluence/x/bBi

"CL_TYPE_SCRIPT may be assigned to data contained in a PDF when the PDF indicates that a stream of bytes is “Javascript”" [1] sort of makes me think it does if scanPDF [2] is turned on

[2] manpages.debian.org/jessie/cla

Sort of an in-the-weeds question but does anyone know if how clamav scans PDF's normally will detect things like embedded javascript or do you have to enable detection of potentially unwanted applications for that? clamav.net/documents/potential

Nice, the outdated version of Confluence we use only has a PDF viewer that requires Flash 🤦‍♂️
