In-reply-to » I finally found the NASM assembler.

@prologic@twtxt.net High five, I’m “generation Java” as well! 😂 There were some leftovers of C++, we used that in the computer graphics courses in Uni a lot. But pretty much anything else that involved programming was Java.

(There was nothing even remotely resembling CS in our “high school”. That school neither had the required teachers nor the equipment / PCs.)

In-reply-to » Wow, OpenWatcom can cross-compile OS/2 binaries on Linux. Even GUI programs, just like that. 🤯 That’s a whole new territory to explore. 👷

(Heh, looking at those time stamps, it appears OS/2 2.1 isn’t quite ready for Y2K. 🥴)

In-reply-to » The local supermarket is now demanding to look into customers’ personal bags, as in “my backpack”. Makes you feel really unwelcome. 🫤 One older man said “no” and they made him wait for … I don’t know for what, the police maybe? I didn’t stay long enough to see the end of it.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Switching shops isn’t that easy. The next one is in the next village, so I’d have to drive there. 🫤

I’m still not convinced that they’ll keep doing it. Let’s wait a week or two. 😏

I finally found the NASM assembler.

https://nasm.us/index.php

I had heard that name before, many times, but somehow never looked into it. Weird. 🤨🤔

This is the kind of program I was looking for.

  1. It is free software. Especially in the DOS ecosystem, free/libre software is a very scarce resource.
  2. It’s a small command line program, not a huge behemoth.
  3. Documentation appears to be well written.
  4. It can even cross-compile DOS binaries from Linux.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org When leaving. The cashier wants to take a look inside your bag. (Or rather: Management made the cashier do it. He wasn’t particularly keen on doing it.)

Turns out, the whole thing is probably illegal:

I’m really curious how long they’ll keep doing it. 😅

@prologic@twtxt.net Yeah, I wonder how long they’ll keep doing that. 🤔 Lots of customers were complaining. On the other hand, Germans are also very obedient (cough, cough), so almost everybody dutifully opened their various bags and purses. 😂🥴

In-reply-to » If you like to suffer, you can read a report about trying out Matrix: https://blog.koehntopp.info/2024/02/13/the-matrix-trashfire.html I'm surprised that he didn't abort.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Since I switched some family members over to FluffyChat (an alternative Matrix client), the headache has been reduced a bit. The default client Element has way too many buttons and options and submenus and what not for the average casual user.

And since I’m running my own non-federated Matrix server, I dodged many of the bullets described in the blog post.

The Emoji thing is really funny, now that I think about it. “Are they the same?” Haha, no, obviously not. But us nerds, we don’t even notice that this is a problem. 🥴 Reminds me of the different Emojis for „🔫“ (some fonts show a revolver, others a SciFi gun, others show a water pistol …).

In-reply-to » KTeaTime: A customizable tea steeping timer application from the KDE project: https://apps.kde.org/kteatime/

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I have that \a in my regular prompt. Any long running command will trigger the terminal bell, which is very handy. 🙂

But … for tea, I have this:

😅

(I love that thing. It’s ancient but it keeps working. And it’s maintenance free, because it’s solar and radio controlled. 👌)

In-reply-to » I noticed that some of my software projects have a rather long lifetime, so I made a little graph:

@xuu@txt.sour.is Most of them, yes. That’s the code I host on my website. dwm-vain, tabbed-vain and qsqs are forks, though, hence dwm-vain appears to be much older. (I only started using dwm in 2012.)

I didn’t use version control systems in the distant past, but nobody wants to see that old stuff anyway. 😅

Hmm, maybe I should also plot the gaps. 🤔 There are many projects that don’t see commits for a couple of years. Oh well, that’s task for another day.
