Question for fellow geminauts: What would you recommend for accessing 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.

Put Folding@Home on my desktop. It’s using too much power. Can I put it on my Raspberry Pi?…

  1. Put Folding@Home on my desktop.
  2. It’s using too much power.
  3. Can I put it on my #RaspberryPi 3B?
  4. The software is 64-bit. The OS on there right now is 32-bit.
  5. Specs show the 3B has a 64-bit processor.
  6. /proc/cpuinfo shows it has a 32-bit processor.
  7. Specs show it should have BCM2837
  8. /proc/cpuinfo shows it has BCM2835
  9. Magnifying glass shows BCM2837 stamped on the chip.

WTF?

Turns out all Pi chips appear as 2835 in the kernel?!?!?

Re: There never was an ‘open web’

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.

I was talking about late-90s campus network safety and how I got in trouble for “running a server”

Still working on my full post about using the Internet in the , 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.

Does anyone remember what dedicated 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.
