I'd like to ask you people to boost this post to see how long it'd take for it to reach someone else from my town (Westervoort, The Netherlands).
Of course, that implies that I'm not the only one here that uses Mastodon, but hey, part of the challenge :)

Starting on the 18th of August 2020 :)


Just found @climagic:

Remember when stallman gave a talk at the Microsoft campus in Redmond, here's what he said there:

ok, i'm now in the possession of the's trackerfiles until end of '19 ... 151564 files, 71Gb unpacked ... phew good luck i have a large sd-card in my handy ^^ time to listen 🎧

uuuh, that's nice

i downloaded all torrents from and had then 20k zip files scattered in many subfolders. To unpack the zips in their folder i used this nice script:

unzip_d () {
unzip -d "$zipdir" "$zipfile"
rm "$zipfile"

which i fed by using a loop over all found zips ... now waiting for completion because some zips contain zips so i can redo it after the first round ^^

anyway sleep well dear folk
