Half Hour of Power is on its last legs and I am abandoning all pretense of any kind of even loose genre theme! Tune in to aNONradio.net at 1800 UTC tonight and dance the GITSHHOP! I'll be playing a selection of tracks from different Ghost in The Shell soundtracks.

@jynx Your recent phlog post about putting OpenBSD on your Fujitsu Lifebook was very timely! I just inherited an old 10" eeePC (not exactly retrocomputing, but it's something for me to tinker with just for fun and without much concern for practicality) and was wondering what to stick on it. I had kind of hoped Minix 3 might be an option, but apparently it no longer supports USB(!). So, I'm installing 6.4 from the Estonian mirror site right now.

In kind of a weird funk. Hope I can I get my act together and do some phlogging on the weekend.

I realised just a few hours before it was due to start that last night was the one year anniversary show for Half Hour of Power! With nowhere near enough time to do a proper special episode I copped out hard (like I do) and replayed the first ever episode. Which, to be fair, is Good Stuff. One year! A very large part of me wants to leave it at that, call it quits, thanks for all the fish. A smaller part of me is sad for the few as-yet unused good ideas I have.

Facts:

1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

Small or private Usenets are cool, I don't get why it does not have much traction? Plain-text, threads, topics... a great social network

Attention fans of vintage electronic music! Tune in to aNONradio.net at 1800 UTC tonight for Half Hour of Power. I will be streaming nearly all of Romano Musumarra and Claudio Gizzi's 1978 album "Automat". Cult classic monophonic analog goodness!

@jirka, do you have any experience with or strong opinions of the Psion Revo machines?

Remember when the internet was simple, and you could just go to the website of a service provider and immediately understand the small number of options there, and never have to wonder things like "what the FUCK is 'Pulsar RUM Steering' and why would I want one?".

The fact that WebAssembly may bring some good to the world is upsetting. It works because some guy in '95 spent 10 days making a scripting language for the web & now we so heavily use the results of that project that the only commonality on platforms is the ability to run that language, so we now baked into it's environment a way to feed it assembly instructions and use it as a compile
