[18:06] So this is how you make computer bugs? I see. Seems I had a completely wrong idea about how they come into existence. :)
[17:42] Update on the History, Evolution and Future of Public Access Unix Systems: there is a GitHub repo now.
[17:38] I had my user name on tilde.town changed (thanks again, ~vilmibm!), so I'm now ~gauntlet over there, too.
[20:21] I'm not one for jewelry, but USB earrings are worth mentioning.
[20:12] I was informed that thunix.org is not actually down but lost the .org TLD and can now be found at thunix.cf and thunix.net. I updated my list of other tildes.
[23:35] cmccabe is writing a paper on the "History, Evolution and Future of Public Access Unix Systems", linked here. My own project The Swintons of Tildeverse overlaps with this on some parts, so we decided to join forces on this. Currently we're discussing how exactly we want to move this forward. More on this as soon as I know which direction the project will take.
[01:49] I spent a little time manually checking the status of the tildeverse, listing all the tildes I know of. There have been quite a few over the years, and I'm happy to see that there are still more than 40% online.
Update: tilde.wiki has a list, too, including two servers I totally missed.
[01:13] Hey, RetroNET is back! Not sure how long the server was offline. Good to see you again!
[19:29] HackersCurator.com is a website for people who "take their fandom several steps further", going into detail on the tech used in the movie, the clothing et cetera. There is also an interesting Youtube channel.
[22:14] Oh, very cool: a bass guitar built into a C64.
[21:50] I kind of want this laptop.
[18:59] Rickroll as a service. I'm not even surprised that this exists.
[18:27] So, it is Check your backups Day. (Mine work.) Also, I read about Schrodinger's backup today. :)
