piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=MBWj hmm, people say bearings don't matter, but they kinda do, ish? At least I can feel being faster on fresh bearings, tempted to try Bones Swiss Ceramic Bearings 🤔

piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=n6QF that's absolutely amazing. I was never huge on the motorised anything (for instance, motorised bicycles are just too heavy to be practical for short under 20km trips), but I'll be eagerly following ATMOS GEAR progress.

that's how my gemini page looks now: gemini://soviet.circumlunar.space/~sweater/

I've learned that there's a whole subculture of tech giant abuse.

I use it with a Redirector plugin in Chrome and FF and it feels great. Almost like we got our Internet back.

SDF is 35 this month, and I found the right blend of nostalgia to celebrate!

This is not my SDF account. A long time ago, I had a basic account. I was 13 (or 14?). I probably couldn't afford the lifetime ARPA membership (if that even was a thing back then, I no longer recall) -- it wasn't a factor because this was back when sending and receiving money internationally was still pretty hard so...

I definitely couldn't afford a fast computer. I didn't even have *my own* computer (1/n)

I wired the brick up as a very small external monitor, so you can, for instance, play Doom on it.

PSA: If you're in a rut because of losing money on crypto scams, I feel for you.

Don't do anything rash, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

It's not entirely your fault. There are people spending a lot of time and effort on figuring out ways to trick you and others into pumping hard cash into their pump and dump schemes.

I've been considering what it would take to make a useful, single user, Lisp operating system. It seems like all that's really needed is an interpreter which persists long-lived environments (I'm using this word how Scheme uses it) to the disk, so they can be removed from memory, and be copied back into memory when accessed later.

If you make this interpreter PID 1 on a Unix-like kernel, you've really just created a Lisp OS. Instead of creating files for storing data, you just declare variables. If you want to have multiple variables with the same name, just create them in different environments (similar to creating files with the same names in different directories).

I took a stab at writing a Lisp interpreter a few years ago. I got something that would apply some built in operators (basically just arithmetic), but didn't get very far. I think now that I actually understand Lisp more, I want to try doing this, and play around with using it as PID 1 on Linux or other Unix-like kernels.
