Spending the morning reorganizing my org-mode files. Funny to read all those old notes!

@cadence Gemini is a new collaboratively designed internet protocol that is like the web but serving up text/gemini as the native format instead of HTML, CSS, and JS. Imagine a www made of simple Markdown-like files connected by links. It's fully encrypted, private, fast, non-commercial, and fairly malware-proof. Go to gemini.circumlunar.space to learn more and download a client. #gemini

Had a weird dream about embedded systems programming tonight...

I wrote an implementation of RFC2229 - A Dictionary Server Protocol in . See github.com/jansc/dictr for the code. More info is available on my phlog at gopher://jan.bio

Sigh. Having troubles again accessing gemini://konpeito.media with bombadillo: Cert [1] is expired; Cert [2] hostname does not match. The .bombadillo.ini files does not contain any certs.

@julienxx@mastodon.sdf.org Castor looks really cool! Works fine on FreeBSD. Congratulations :)

Ooooh, gentoo. Sweet. I used it for quite a while almost 20 years ago - long before systemd :) Not sure if this is something for my work machine though, and my personal notebook runs FreeBSD which I'm quite happy with. But I'll take a look at the handbook. Promise!

Started the day with my /boot partition wiped out. Why???

when you find out your daily lifestyle is actually called "quarantine"

I've written an -based client in . Though it's still in alpha, you can give it a try at github.com/jansc/ncgopher
Also, feature requests are welcome! See the NOTES.org file for planned features.
