Who out there in the ether has a lot of experience dealing with corrupted HFS+ partitions?

I've been running into a lot of failing Seagate Barracuda Pro 10-16TB drives. Not sure yet if it's logical or physical failure. Seems to be HFS+ giving up 🤣

I did it: I finally found a published, explicit suggestion of emulation as a necessary strategy for digital preservation that predates Rothenberg

I'm in the middle of a linked open data datamodel transformation on a Wikibase, AMA

I'm interested in reading about who is collecting and preserving evidence gathered under the general name "Open Source Intelligence", especially data with potential to be used in war crimes trials.

Success! We're now running from a much larger disk. I still have maintenance to do later but it shouldn't be very user-visible.

Overheard at No Time to Wait 4 conference which is happening now: "If they exist in the file then we are interested in knowing about them"

Also "Significant Significant Properties" 😂 😂 semanticscholar.org/paper/Sign

Does anyone know of any good tutorials or resources for learning Docker? Like a Carpentry or Programming-Historian style intro?

Looking for connections who know a thing or two (or even more than two things) about doing an MA in Archiving.

If this is you, can I ask you a few questions?

If this is not you, please could you signal boost?

Hello digipres.club and fediverse, what are the myths that you often find yourself debunking/busting when talking about our work?

Any digipres club folks heading to ALA? I'm just doing expo pass, but since I'm in DC, I figure this is a good chance to say hi to people!

Any vintage computing and/or emulator enthusiasts out there who have favorite hobbyist sites or resources? I realized this was a crucial missing piece in my emulation-resources repo:

Mastodon sometimes sends me along notifies that people are saying the equivalent of "Here is Jason's account on mastodon but he almost never posts, he posts on twitter but twitter badddddd" across the month. Sorry about that, I go where the mass audience is.

If you're exclusively here, let me suggest my podcast, "Jason Scott Talks His Way Out of It" patreon.com/textfiles - monetary support is encouraged but not required. I'm at 61 episodes and growing weekly.

Admin announcement: tomorrow, I'm migrating digipres.club to new hardware. There will be some downtime while that happens!

Hooray, digipres.club is back! So now I can ask a question of any QEMU tinkerers and/or legacy Linux users:

Any suggestions for getting '90s-era Mandrake (5.x) to recognize sound and network cards? As far as I can tell from modprobe, Mandrake had native drivers for QEMU's emulated SB16 and NE2000 PCI devices, and they're loaded into the kernel, but the OS still won't see them.

Am I going to finally experience the joys of recompiling the Linux kernel???

Since this is digipres _the club_ perhaps some of y'all will want to present at digipres _the conference_ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ndsa.org/meetings/
