New simple 64-bit native-code Forth system running on AMD64  

Anton Ertl is working on a new Forth system written in amd64 assembly. The main goal of fforth is to demonstrate modern Forth implementation techniques, in particular: header structures that directly represent, e.g., compilation semantics and recognizers

It is work in progress and can be found on Github: https://github.com/AntonErtl/fforth

How small can you get a base #OpenBSD system?

I wish to run a couple no-dependencies C programs, along with inetd and relayd, with as little RAM as possible (also storage, but I do have non-OS stuff that'll inevitably need the space so that's not a priority).

It might have to do with QEMU but with -m 256M and 1 core my VM locks up quickly after some I/O. I've removed the sets x* and game* from the system.

Any optimisation tips welcome!

Gemini is getting a lot of love lately, and while I do think working for “the small web” is great, its security model really irks me. It's perfect for exploitation by large actors and especially telcos, which is the adversary most people probably should worry about anyway. These people called HTTPS “the darkening of the web” since they could no longer inspect and inject into anything at will. Building a new and better web small web without privacy isn't going _forward_, IMHO.

Tiny-Core is a Linux the runs completely from RAM. I use it for maintanance, you can boot it from USB and then remove the boot device :)
Get it from tinycorelinux.net/
Download the book, and the Tinycore ISO with gigantic 16MB. The Tinycore is with graphical interface. Core is cmdline only and a bit too hardcore for first time use.
When it runs, right click the desktop and choose Apps to install packages.
I boot it from USB with Syslinux, I could post a howto if needed.

@hn50 If anyone has issues accessing the server, please be patient; it's written in Retro and I've not had it hit this hard in a long time. I've raised my rate limits to hopefully help improve things, but it may be a while before it's back to normal.

1/ This is a comparison more people should be making. In 1898, a couple thousand white supremacists successfully overturned an election in North Carolina, destroying a powerful, anti-capitalist coalition of poor white and recently emancipated Black farmers (the Fusionists).

telling people your own age that you're proud of them feels like being a dog and discovering that you, too, can give headpats

Hey so, Salesforce just bought Slack. Salesforce has a history of monetizing things they buy in really aggressive manners so I'm expecting some Changes there soon.

If you use Discord, I'll also note that when a thing's main competition has a problem is when companies choose to make Big Moves so don't be shocked if Discord makes major changes or either gets bought themselves very soon.

I've been banging the drum of "Have backups for your communities" for years now, but it's more serious now.

Um um um um ummmmm... is this what it sounds like? Google is blocking browsers it doesn't "approve" of... apparently just letting in Firefox and Chrome? developers.googleblog.com/2020

The web as an open standards platform is rapidly falling apart. :\

Joho godtfolk, og god laurdagskveld! Eg har eit lite oppdrag til dykk nettverksskallar: Eg har omsett ferdig til nynorsk, og bed dykk prøve ut herlegdomen på demo.mobilizon.org/. Eg sjølv har sett nokre glepptak i omsetjinga, og tek gjerne imot fleire rettingar.

Eg synest dette er ei bitteliti markering verdt, fordi eit fint alternativ til Facebook-grupper og -hendingar no er opna for norske brukarar. Eg tek eit glas raudt, i alle fall, så får de hine gjera som de lystar.

"These machines are the first general purpose computers ever where you have to make an exclusive choice: you can have a fast and efficient machine, or you can have a private one... Short of using an external network filtering device like a travel/vpn router that you can totally control, there will be no way to boot any OS on the new Apple Silicon macs that won’t phone home, and you can’t modify the OS to prevent this."
