S has taken the kids to Forest School and it's my day off so treating myself to a film. Watching Dead Zone, a 1983 Christopher Walken film with great support from Brooke Adams, it's bloody fantastic. The action scenes aren't drawn out like they would be today and the clothes and decor throughout remind me of my childhood. #theCinema
This was creating beautiful strokes. I'm an idiot for abandoning it, and a bigger one for losing the code.
I've lost the hard disk startup already, boot from floppy works fine, although with that I can't experiment with adding the networking extension to get it online. This is turning into a much bigger project than anticipated. Apparently it's common for people to need two working Classics so they can do disk work on one for the other. The SCSI HD looks to have been specially formatted in an external caddy, which means the Apple repair tools can't see it (I can browse it fine though though).
It's not quite working yet but I've implemented a standalone Work Manager file downloader in Ariane, so no worries about keeping the app open if you download large/slow files. #gemini
I'm going to swap the Theme and Accessibility sections here in Ariane's Settings screen. A screen reader user would have to step through all the Theme fields to get to what they need, anyone without a screen reader can just scroll past the Accessibility features in under a second (although I turn most of them on as I prefer Geminispace with them on). #gemini
Finished a basic BASIC Mariner Protocol client in 95 lines of Chipmunk Basic: https://oppen.digital/memex/20210905_2024/
It's even got a functioning history.
New post from yesterday's burial chamber visit, all done on-device via Ariane + Lander:
The tragic thing about this site is these two chambers were originally completed covered in stones. I guess over the last few thousand years it's been used as a ready source of stone for dry stone walls by farmers.
Just found a couple of these while tidying up. I got them made a while back and was thinking about selling them, they're a riff on the Smiling Sun logo: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smiling_Sun
