It's amazing how fast you can get back up to speed on something when you have an internet and search engines and emulators to test things in.
Having to reboot your development environment to try something out was a real pain in the 80s. You kids don't know how good you've got it ...
I'd like to point out here that if you're not familiar with the restrictions of the #C64 that stripe across the middle probably doesn't look like much of an achievement. Trust me, it's cool.
Hey, I just wanted to say a quick #welcome to the recent Chinwag arrivals!
Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target #Australian users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.

There's a basic guide to using Chinwag Social here: https://chinwag.im/social/

Masto admins, tips for reducing disk space Show more
- `yarn cache clean` deletes `~/.cache/yarn`, which is rebuilt next time you run `yarn`, saved 433M for me
- `rbenv uninstall 2.5.3` if you've upgraded to ruby 2.6.0, saved 164MB for me
- `rm -fr ~/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.5.0/` ditto for ruby 2.6.0 upgrade, saved 335M for me
There is also Postgres `VACUUM FULL` but I've had mixed results with it, also it locks your tables and temporarily uses lots of space to copy tables.
Hey, Australians, apparently there are big discounts on all my books on this website!
So, I recently decided to go through every #BBS on the Telnet BBS Guide site list.
My plan is to see which ones are still up and which ones aren't. Also document the BBSes themselves - as in, what games they run, if there's a community, what software you can download and if you can speak to the admin and lots of other things!
I would like to interview every admin I can, whether over IRC, email or whatever.
If you know where I can find more BBSes, or you run one, just reply to this msg!
