Excellent interview with the CTO of Raptor Computing Systems (vendors of fully-open POWER9 workstations):

Big props to Framework for everything they do, especially enabling awesome cyberdeck builds like these.

I'm happy to introduce our new ultra-low tech CMS for smol, accessible websites. The goal was to make something that could be self-hosted, but friendly enough for people who don't SFTP or use a terminal. 3 PHP files, Apache, and Gemtext. Should work on any dumb old Apache host; a technical person could manage many of these for friends and family with zero maintenance. Happy to answer any questions or take bug reports.

No user-facing computer program should require more than 400MHz of CPU or 1GB of RAM.

Those are numbers that I overinflated for sheer generosity - honestly I think even these specs are pushing it.

I do some amateur photography as a hobby, and thought I'd share some photos from time to time. These were taken from two trips this month: Cape Disappointment and Olympic National Park.

I anticipate spending a LOT more time in the National Park.

Okay, I can't keep the urge of making my own spreadsheet program at bay any longer.

Let's get started.

My today's game is now on :flan_guns: is a platform for indies video games. First time I join it as a creator, my new game Z-hack is modest but it exists and I'm proud of it :flan_cool:

You can find many good games there, most of them are free. A few gems like Celeste, Noita, Amon Us or Urtuk ended on more common stores such as Steam when they got popular.

We spoke with the FSF, and we found an arrangement so we could have access to a somewhat reliable internet connection for the event, and so we'll be happy to give a keynote at the upcoming LibrePlanet, March 19 and 20!
