Here's an extension test on Ubuntu MATE 18.04.
The file manager gets things mostly right, but notice the ISO file only gets properly recognized if its filename ends in ".iso". This is despite the fact that file(1) tells me it's "ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data"
At least this looks like something that can be fixed in the file manager. I frankly expected worse.
I did verify that my problem with Carvana's website being broken is Carvana's fault (or Cloudflare's fault)
The front page looks fine, but it's when you go to search that you fall into the abyss.
oh the XT-IDE works; it just fails to see my WDAC1210 hard drive :o(
I made a floppy cable for the 386 that was card-edge at the controller end
But as I suspected, that old (clone) controller doesn't support 1.44MB floppy.
I tried using XT-IDE board on the 386, and that also ended up as I suspected: drive not found
>NO ROM BASIC
It's an error message I haven't seen since about 1994, which was the very last time I dealt with a BIOS like this!
So... I'd been having problems booting Apple II with INTBASIC on the mainboard (via ROMX)...
and my APPLESOFT file I used as the HELLO pokes a hole in DOS and loads a hex dumper there, but if I'm using INTBASIC, it crashes.
My hole poker rebuilds DOS buffers, and if I use FP, it's fine, but if I use INTBASIC... BANG!
(INTBASIC program is high in RAM, up against HIMEM, so moving it while it's running is Not Cool. DOS moves start of program and HIMEM,)
Ruffle is pretty awesome. It's flash emulator written in rust
Now the questions of "how will homestarrunner.com ever work again" and "how do we preserve pretty much all of Newgrounds" can be answered
So this gem from Odysee, the video sharing platform formerly known as "LBRY", popped into my email
I've basically written off "blockchain" as something that's hyped to separate a fool from his money, but I get what SEC are trying to do
Not that SEC's execution is competent...
And the idea that this complaint will be bad for crypto is dangerously conflating the "bitcoin" kind with the kind that secures your web browser session to your bank
