Good morning. If you aren’t kind to animals, you probably aren’t kind to people. Time for the ceremonial coffee.

I won the battle! I got Slackware 14.1 installed in this Pentium 133 with 256M ram.

I’m very interested in understanding the #palmos infrared interfaces. USB is fine for existing machines, but it’s a lot of overhead if you don’t really need it, and infrared gets you wireless connectivity without power-hungry radios, etc…

anyone know any data archivists that might have a copy of the Intel OpenCL Runtime for Linux, version 14.2? the link on intel's website does not work and i cannot find it elsewhere

the 2013 sdk would probably also suffice (i have a filename for that one, "intel_sdk_for_ocl_applications_2013_xe_sdk_3.0.67279_x64.tgz")

We all make mistakes. Some of us just make mistakes that have a bigger impact.

I have sent out a patch which adds initial 40MHz channel support to the #OpenBSD iwm #wifi driver.

Please help with testing if you can 📶​ :flan_smile:

Datasheet sites are basically an infested swamp of hustlery, similar to almost any song lyrics site...

Just had the experience of a site showing an entry for a hard-to-find IC I was prowling for a datasheet to. They have a seemingly legit page for the IC with a few details and a link to the datasheet. You click it and is informed that you need to sign in to access the datasheet.

OK, I took the bait, since the IC is hard to find as I mentioned. I create the profile (throwaway details of course) and finally reload the page with the datasheet link promping me to create the profile.

... Only now that I'm signed in, there is no longer any link and apparently they do not have the datasheet and were only pretending to have it to get you to sign up.

Well, screw you too. 🤬​
