Does anyone know if there’s a way to get mixed-mode data/audio CDs to mount right in OS X for use with the Classic Environment? Game I’m trying to use can’t recognize its audio.

Hey y'all! I work as a contract Web developer that specializes in #Elixir, #Python and #JavaScript (with some background with #PHP). I'm looking for some more leads in the space for this quarter - always gets a little dry around this time of year.

The great thing about FFV1 being officially recommended as a preservation format is that FFmpeg’s libraries already power much of the digitization hardware and software infrastructure. Adding support is genuinely practical, and I don’t think I can say that about older recommendations.

I honestly thought the AmigaOS 3.x line was over! Hyperion’s been developing the 4.x line for over a decade. This is a big surprise, but really neat.

Someone’s discovered a CD version of Cinemaware’s Defender of the Crown! This is so rare it was thought not to have been released. It’s a hybrid floppy/CD game, and would have been one of the earliest CD games ever released.

There are no dark archives collecting old iOS .ipas, right? Because I definitely have discontinued apps sitting around, which might easily get lost…

Microsoft have also posted an explanation. It apparently happened when known folder redirection was on, but files still existed in the old paths. This could happen, for example, when installing old versions of OneDrive.

Looks like Microsoft fixed the data-deleting bug from the Windows 10 update.

Holy shit, Google+ is shutting down after a major data leak.
