OK I'm feeling somewhat good about having accomplished things today.

I managed to create disk images of an obscure CP/M system's floppies on an MS-DOS machine, and I also tracked down the documentation for said obscure disk format and managed to get cpmtools to read the fucking images under Linux.

So now I've got a good backup path for those old floppies, and tomorrow I might see if I can write a whole new disk and add stuff to it.

Oh shit it's 1am, how did that happen?

@Rigby_Koyaanisqatsi not a clue, it's whatever font they picked for the Pied Piper Technical Manual in 1983. These are scans and you can even see the holes where they came out of a 3-ring binder on each page.

@mike Oh wow, yeah I thought it looked like some sort of typewriter font

@Rigby_Koyaanisqatsi @mike Closest digital example would probably be any of the Courier fonts tbh.

@mike "oh shit it's 1am" is a solid mood I can relate to.
