@artem no linux distro wants to start on it, even the low-power ones. Waited 1.5 hours for puppy linux to boot, nothing, antix, haiku, minix, debian, all just get stuck at a black screen.

Also, the only networking option this laptop has is a 56k modem, what security are you even talking about?? I have no intention of ever connecting it to the internet (I don't even have a phone line)

also getting really tempted to write a mastodon->telegram reposter for my tg channel, but it sure would be wonderful if this already exists somewhere and I'm just terrible at googling

back home from the trip to another city (where I bought the laptop), turns out I literally don't have any writable CDs, only a fuckton of blu-rays (using them to back up unimportant photos) and a few DVD+Rs, damn

guess I'll have to buy some for the first time in like 5 years or so

apparently it has no OS and the CMOS battery is dead and I'll have to solder a new one, but it mostly works!!!!!

but I don't have any boot CDs (and no CDs at all) so I'll have to buy some RWs and a burner, I guess

@artem no idea, I don't have the power supply for it yet

techwear skirts are the ultimate clothing form

my unrealistic transition goal of the week is a novakid from starbound

Basically I lured them into a sense of false security by trailing 1.5K XP behind them , waited until they slowed down to about 200XP/day and then attacked at the latest moment possible, taking them by surprise and snatching the 1st place right as the league week came to a close

I've literally made a plan how to take over the 1st place in my league from someone who does 800-1000XP/day, and it seems to work

Vegan burgers (the "made from plant proteins" kind not the "grown from animal cells" ones) have reached a point at which I can barely tell if they're plant-based or actual meat, and that's totally good enough by me. Switching to them where possible now.

welp, upgrading the server was a total shitshow

the new motherboard blew a transistor in a spectacular fashion (lots of sparks, fire and smoke), and the old one decided to stop booting for apparently no reason (I still have no idea why, because it suddenly started working again after a night of standby)
