Hi all, what do you think of establishing a Code of Conduct for digipres.club? It will help us federate with friendly instances.

I am thinking of adopting what we have at our sister instance glammr.us/about/more

Feel free to edit draft at docs.google.com/document/d/1pm

Thanks @misty for bringing this up.

I've been reading The Digital Dilemma (about Hollywood and moving image preservation), because I get asked about video a lot, and it has a surprisingly in-depth background section discussing digital preservation in a variety of fields beyond Hollywood.

I've been writing a Rust binding for libcue, a CD-ROM CUE sheet parser. Seems to be working!

Note that the final track’s length is “-1” because the CUE format leaves that implicit; that LBA has to be calculated from the actual CD-ROM disc image.

Thinking of putting in a paper proposal for a non-archives conference, but to talk about archives-related work. Specifically, a look back on David Bearman's 1987 report on the potential for a software archive, commissioned by The Computer Museum (my employer's Boston ancestor).

@joshuatj @mickylindlar I've worked a little bit with DIAMANT Dustbuster+ the past couple years. I just tried for the heck of it and technically speaking it at least will import FFV1 (though only wrapped in MOV, no MKV). But it only renders/exports still image formats, so who knows exactly what's happening in that decode/encode....might be worth some tests!

I'm /really/ excited about pinafore.social/. It looks great and is basically what I had been hoping for all along! A lightweight thingy that does the mastodon things on the shitty netbook that I sometimes like to use

Now that my FILM muxer is in FFmpeg, I think my next step will be writing up a blog post on it! I didn’t find many resources on this kind of thing, so I hope writing about my experiences will help other people - and be interesting in general.

I’m still trying to figure out why FFmpeg’s Cinepak is being rejected by the Saturn, but it’s a bit less pressing now that I have access to a vintage Cinepak encoder. My muxer’s still very useful for replacing audio.

IMAGICA dabbled with HDR remastering of Jigokumon, demonstrate the potential of film elements. I don't think it counts as anymore. It's more .
