Found my old #Windows #2000 CD in an old box in the garage. Had to spool up a VM. I remember it being a lot more fun, I cant find anything anymore.

No SSL in ie6, makes most of the web unusable. Apparently I could install an ancient build of palemoon, but meh I did this for a lark

Hmm, this may sound odd but is it bad I wish there were a game like among us without the imposter, like just a bunch of crewmates working and fixing emergencies without the danger of imposters killing you, mmo style (as in tons of people, and drop in drop out gameplay)

i would like an iframe or script i can put on my website that will pull my latest toots from my mastodon or pleroma instance. please advise.

Alright so since no one came forward to do it i'm gonna do as i said.

(Talking about this https://youdabomb.social/notice/A12U2fgcBp5DvB6W9o

I have created a room on my XMPP server ( bookclub@rooms.chat.youdabomb.social?join ) that anyone is free to join. If you need an XMPP account i can help you out there as well.

So the plan is to pick a book and read it over the month of December. Then around the end of December we hop in the room and discuss just like a real book club. I like the idea of using text chat because then time zones don't matter as much since everyone can pop in and say what they want at anytime. I realize December can be a busy month so this first run might be a little more flexible we shall see. Also depending on everyone's reading speed. No one will be rushed.

What i was thinking was taking the next couple weeks or so to pick a book. As i said in my last post it's a high requirement that the book be DRM free. I've been looking around here

https://www.libreture.com/bookshops/

and there are quite a few good places to pick up some DRM free books. Some directly from the author so even better.

Just as some ideas/starting points i was looking at this site

https://undertowpublications.com/ebooks

seems to have quite a few books that might be interesting.

Then this book store also has a large selection of DRM free books

https://www.ebooks.com/en-ca/drm-free

Some of them are just like university text books and such but there are some interesting looking book series even. Like this one

https://www.ebooks.com/en-ca/series/the-ender-quintet/

Anyways feel free to join and we can try and agree on a book. I did not want to just pick a book flat out i wanted to give anyone who was going to join the chance to help decide. If that proves to not work then i'll probably just pick one.

I do hope people join in. I will place the name of the room in an unlisted comment on this post since Pleroma likes to break the xmpp URI(At least for me. Maybe it's husky we shall see).

I'm also creating a group @fediversebookclub if anyone wants to follow that i'll tag it in all updates.

Oh,I just remember that I have a old AST machine with Windows 95 under my desk. With a SSD.

Yeah, a Windows 95 machine with Pentium - with an SSD

Found some time to play with my RTL-SDR again, I wonder what I will find this time..

Last time I intercepted a baby monitor

you can send morse 10m through a concrete wall using only a computer and ethtool: youtube.com/watch?v=ueC4SLPrtN

(yes i know you can do other stuff to an rpi to generate RF, but this only requires a wired ethernet interface)

"This means that Apple knows when youโ€™re at home. When youโ€™re at work. What apps you open there, and how often.

Yikes!!! Everyone must read this if you have a Mac. Should embrace Linux, the sooner the better. This is what Richard Stallman and Cory Doctorow warned us about so many years (and decades) ago.

rant about religious people 

@Lordimpala @selea It actually does not make any difference if any such scriptures are "true" or not with respect to any ethical proposition. These two logical domains are separate. Any argument defending an ethical proposition with an ontological one is logically fallacious and usually an argumentum ab auctoritate.

rant about religious people 

I am kinda pissed about people trying to convince me about "how much Jesus loves you" and "Jesus does not want you to do this" with arguments directly from their holy book.

They fail to understand that I reject the fact that the bible is true, unless they can convince me otherwhise.
But that is a strange concept for them, since they themselves are used to just accept things as fact just because the bible says so".

My younger brother just gave me a 5th Gen Kindle Fire that he just replaced. I've been looking all over the internet for resources that could help me install Linux on it but the internet is failing me tonight.

Does anybody here have experience or links I can click that relate to installing Linux on the device? If so, please fire a reply my way.
