@andrewjbtw the pool of people who can or willing to do what we do is wayy too small
@misty Woohoo! Thanks!
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:
@andrewjbtw similar over here. Video is the larger share. Looking into FFV1 to hopefully reduce some of it.
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.
Thanks @misty! Yayy to a more stable digipres.club! 🍍 💾
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???
@kim Welcome to digipres.club! 🍍💾🍍💾. Share your thoughts. Be at home 🏖️🏡
Since this is digipres _the club_ perhaps some of y'all will want to present at digipres _the conference_ >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> https://ndsa.org/meetings/
@alex No worries. Check out this beginner's guide https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2018/08/a-beginners-guide-to-mastodonemem/
@alex Hello there! Welcome to 🍍 digipres.club!💾
I know I'm a bit late to the party but OMG😮 , all new in box! Pentium III. Voodoo 5 5500!! 512 MB RAM!
What's the best way to find and interact with other #librarians on Mastodon? The hashtags I've used and loved on Twitter don't seem to have users here...lovin' Mastodon, but still learn' the culture and best practices 🙂
Oh, I know and love the Trunk (though I should revisit it again, it's been awhile...)
Thanks in advance!!!
