It’s been a busy week and I didn’t have overflow from last week to help, so these are very fresh links.
- With ARM Wide Open. Acorn, where ARM processors first showed up.
- That led me to the BBC film Micro Men, a neat movie about not-Silicon-Valley early computing.
- MXE11: run UNIX on a microcontroller. Pocket PDP/11. (via)
- WiGLE, mapping of WiFi everywhere. There’s a certain amount of approximation, but still interesting. (via)
- DungeonFS, both a FUSE filesystem and dungeon crawl. (via)
- A few notes on daily blogging. Relevant to why I do this thing you are reading now.
- How Instagram’s Feed Works. It bothers me that what you see is filtered by how you use their tools, not by what you actually like. (via)
- The History of Telecommunications. (via)
- OpenVMS/x86_64: Proof Points to x86-64 First Boot (May 29th 2018). As someone who still has a VAX running… I’m interested.
cmd.exetricks: Changing directories with forward slashes instead of backslashes. I find this entertaining.
- Six hacks for less(1). I don’t think of less(1) as configurable, but it is.
- GitHub: quo vadis? This note gets it right: self host, self host, self host self host self host. We all have the tools; don’t let a startup sell them back to you.
