- Proof of concept, if not execution, of the Bloomberg-reported hardware hack, from 35c3. (via)
- Sort of related: Factors in authentication. U2F will become widespread, or at least I hope it will.
- Killing Technology. Metal band patches. (via)
- On using Acme as a day-to-day text editor.
- MDT9100. (via)
- The technical differences between HTTP and gopher.
- It’s no longer possible to write a web browser from scratch, but it is possible to write a gopher browser from scratch. Should there be a gopher version of the Digest? Probably more utility in the idea than the usage.
- Accounting machines, the IBM 1403, and why printers standardized on 132 columns. Surely you’ve seen the 1403 green-bar paper, somewhere.
- Deface, a plugin to encrypt Facebook posts … against Facebook. A simple but useful idea. (via)
- Inside the Apollo Guidance Computer’s core memory.
- Is It Time to Rewrite the Operating System in Rust? I link cause of the UNIX and pre-UNIX history, not Rust. (via multiple places)
- BRIEFCASE PORTABILITY.
