Question for fellow geminauts: What would you recommend for accessing #gemini on iOS? I don’t have an iOS device in the house, so while I’ve got favorite clients on desktops, terminals and Android, I’m not sure what to suggest for iOS in a “here’s how to connect” bit at the end of a post.
Got a shipping notice for something that arrived yesterday.
It has a tracking number now!
How did I never make the connection to “Scientific Progress Goes BOINC”
I miss small electronics stores.
Decided to put BOINC on an old phone instead. I don’t feel like installing a new OS on the Pi
- Put Folding@Home on my desktop.
- It’s using too much power.
- Can I put it on my #RaspberryPi 3B?
- The software is 64-bit. The OS on there right now is 32-bit.
- Specs show the 3B has a 64-bit processor.
- /proc/cpuinfo shows it has a 32-bit processor.
- Specs show it should have BCM2837
- /proc/cpuinfo shows it has BCM2835
- Magnifying glass shows BCM2837 stamped on the chip.
Turns out all Pi chips appear as 2835 in the kernel?!?!?
Yes, I get it, it’s raining tacos 😱
Found in a box brought from another house
responding to a link to a post about how the web never really was distributed because it required domain names and centralized hosting
I remember Opera (the original browser company) trying to address that with their Opera Unite feature…but it never gained enough traction even among Opera users, and that was small enough a group to begin with, and they dropped it even before they switched to WebKit and sold the company.
Funny how in 2004, seeing 3 wireless networks in the building seemed like a lot!
Still working on my full post about using the Internet in the #1990s, but I found an old blog entry from 2004 where I was talking about late-90s campus network safety and how I got in trouble for “running a server” because I used Linux to avoid all the pranks and hacking going around with everyone’s Windows 95 computers.

Gemlog: Internet Security Perspective
Writing up my experience of the internet in the 1990s. Kid’s having problems with headphones not working. We trace it to the audio extension cable…which is the same one I used in my dorm room in the 1990s.
Scheduled booster shots for me and my wife. Between the first and second pass through the scheduler, they dropped the eligibility question.
They must have had the change ready to go as soon as the official open-it-up-to-anyone word came down.
Of course I still had to enter all the same insurance information both times
Pretty sure that aluminum can isn’t compostable
I love how Debian has “stable”, “oldstable” and “oldoldstable” releases
Does anyone remember what dedicated #gopher clients were around in the early 1990s? I remember using Netscape & Mosaic, but I could swear I used *something* gopher-specific at the school computer labs, or maybe there was an application in the collection of internet software that the school offered to students.
