Show Topic


Texas Linux Fest:  Met Joe, Ed Leach, and Danny Meeks.  Hung around with them and Mordancy

KansasLinuxFest.org Aug. 9-11 2019, Wichita State University Campus.  No reserved rooms, no hotel near campus.  If coming from out of town, I suggest getting a room in “Old Town”.

After 24 years, new version of Amiga OS released https://gigazine.net/gsc_news/en/20181011-amiga-os-new-version/

A new “Amiga” to go with it https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/05/the-a-eon-amiga-x5000-reviewed-the-beloved-amiga-meets-2017/

Netminer:  Folks, there are three Amiga OS lines due to licensing.   There is the 3.1 series, the 3.9 series, and the 4.1 series.   I am not an Amiga person,  but I am a retro computing person.   I follow the continuing  Amiga saga with interest.

Got  DietPi on my Pine64.  Ran Pi-Hole, 64 overheated and locked up.  Will try without pine case before trying a different SBC

On way home from airport, found Arcade1Up Asteroids for $150 clearance at WalMart.  Bought 2.  Discovered one open box, assembled, no worky.  Ultimately, this was to be a Retro-Pi cabinet, but I’d have liked to have tested the 1Up.  Second cabinet was for investment, but I could help a bro or sis out.

Grumpy Cat died https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/17/celebrities/grumpy-cat-dead-intl-scli/index.html
