In-reply-to » Last week was a quite succesfull one: I survived up to and past my 39th birthday, built and configured Jenny+mutt, updated Intex Aqua Fish all the way from Sailfish OS 2.0 to 4.4, and installed Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on a PowerPC machine. http://screenshots.i-logout.cz/BullEstrellaWinNT4-202211_26.png

@mckinley non-x86 is still my primary machine at home, I wouldn’t want it any other way :) But it’s a bit more modern than G5.

@mckinley Mostly, yes. I experimented with various other systems like the pre-systemd Debian, but the main OS for most tasks was Leopard. With Sevan’s pkgsrc repository, TenFourFox and TenFourBird it was pretty usable untill the end. This probably is my last desktop screenshot from it.

@mckinley I used this myself for ages (my primary machine was dual G5 until 2018), but this is all emulation - an i686 CPU is emulated in the QEMU to run i686 Windows. I’m running PowerPC version of Windows (only NT 3.5 and NT 4.0 were released for PowerPC as well as MIPS and DEC Alpha) on PowerPC workstation from 1995. It has a 67MHz PowerPC 603, 64 MB of RAM and 1GB HDD. Here is the original news from when it was released: https://techmonitor.ai/technology/bulls_low_end_powerpc_estrella_to_go_via_zenith

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Yes, this is bare metal - I don’t even think that it is possible to run NT on PowerPC in emulation or at least I didn’t see anyone running it. It requires special firmware that only Motorola provided, about half dozen machines were supported. I had to download the firmware from archive.org and flash it as my Bull Estrella didn’t have it, just the generic firmware for running AIX.

In-reply-to » Question for the more experienced: Is it safe to manually retroactivelly enter the topic hashes to my first twtxt posts? So that replies would group with the posts?

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Mea culpa, I broke the thread myself - original twtxt client posts date in local time, Jenny posts GMT, so I corrected the timestamp in twtxt.txt, changing the hash… From now on I won’t mess with the file by hand.

In-reply-to » Opinion: I think the most stupid feature of Twitter™ is the whole link tracking shit 😅 The fact that any link you post is translated into https://t.co/... and its so much work to get the actual link (I block all sorts of add serving domains, including Twitter™). Go!

@prologic I like that long links do not consume much of the tweet (which was mostly important back in the 140-character times), I hate the tracking as well though. And it used to mess gopher:// URLs!

Finally managed to configure Jenny and the mutt integration, so probably this would be my true start to twtxt. I’m still fighting the mutt a bit though as I always was more of a pine person.

I felt this weird last time when I tried to seriously use Plan 9. I don’t even know even how to reply to someone as it doesn’t seem like the original twtxt Python client supports the topic in brackets. But I managed Gopher, Z80 assembly, and paddleboarding, I will manage twtxt as well.
