@andrewjbtw the pool of people who can or willing to do what we do is wayy too small

"To remember is to regenerate, recreate, reinvent and reformulate." Prof Kwok quoting Emmanuel Tjibaou's keynote yesterday (More on twitter.com/hashtag/seapavaa23)

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:


@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 ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’พ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐ŸŽบ ๐ŸŽŠ

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.

Thanks @misty! Yayy to a more stable digipres.club! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’พ

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

@tvc15 @ashley sorry, wasn't looking at the space utilisation. Mitigating, mitigating now.

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???

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, I know and love the Trunk (though I should revisit it again, it's been awhile...)

Thanks in advance!!!
