I did it: I finally found a published, explicit suggestion of emulation as a necessary strategy for digital preservation that predates Rothenberg
I’m trying to write quarterly updates on the technical side of the UK Web Archive, in case that’s of interest?! https://blogs.bl.uk/webarchive/2022/05/uk-web-archive-technical-update-spring-2022.html
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" 😂 😂 https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Significant-Significant-Properties-Veenendaal/9a4b9f75cc57fada8d071add192f892b2c20bac6

I made a Thing! It’s called the Ident-O-Matic and it can run multiple format identification tools over a file for you https://mybinder.org/v2/gh/digipresnet/guide-to-format-id/master?urlpath=/apps/01-Ident-O-Matic.ipynb
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:
Thanks to @misty, digipres.club has successfully migrated unto new hardware! Toot us if you are experiencing any problems. Meanwhile keeping tooting 🍍 💾 🐘 🎺 🎊
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" https://patreon.com/textfiles - monetary support is encouraged but not required. I'm at 61 episodes and growing weekly.
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_ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> https://ndsa.org/meetings/
I know I'm a bit late to the party but OMG😮 , all new in box! Pentium III. Voodoo 5 5500!! 512 MB RAM!
