A Minimal C64 Datasette Program Loader

The Commodore Datasette recording format is heavily optimized for data safety and can compensate for many typical issues of cassette tape, like incorrect speed, inconsistent speed (wow/flutter), and small as well as longer dropouts. This makes the format more complex and way less efficient than, for example, “Turbo Tape” or all other custom formats used by commercial games. Let’s explore the format by writing a minimal tape loader for the C64, optimized for size, which can decode correct tapes, but does not support error correction.

We need to talk about **joindiaspora.com **

Flaburgan diaspora* community staff // Aug 2013
We are facing a lot of problems with joindiaspora and I think it’s time to change our strategy about it.
At the moment, we simply don’t deal with joindiaspora. But there are many downsides. They almost all come from one point: people don’t make any difference between “diaspora” and “joindiaspora”. Result: when “joindiaspora” is slow / buggy / down, it’s “diaspora” which slow / buggy / down. When “joindiaspora” doesn’t respect privacy (Amazon, Google analytics which has now be removed), it’s “diaspora*” which doesn’t respect privacy.

August 2013, nothing has changed, no comment.

Jewish people were russian migrants for most, living in German and polish slums in the wake of 20th century. This is how Germans dealt with their migrants.. no need to draw a picture, everyone knows it...
Now they are asking everyone to do the same and they are killing the #internet so that none can tell... #lol

#diaspora is totally German owned, all main servers are in Germany. This is place is THE worstantisemitic place I have ever seen. I guess some miss a good pogrom... These people are no rednazi, they are nazi, period. Funny thing is that, as history repeats, we have the french people helping...

OS/2 Museum: A Soundcard before it's time

A mysterious full-length sound card recently arrived at the OS/2 Museum. It was clearly manufactured by IBM in 1985, and sports a 20 MHz Texas Instrument TMS32010 DSP (...) The FRU P/N 15F8511 of the card leads to the IBM SpeechViewer adapter. The SpeechViewer was announced in late 1988, which matches the FCC ID, but not the card itself.
An interesting mystery.

This is an excellent podcast about #UniversalBasicIncome (and so much more), with Richard Feidler interviewing historian Rutger Bregman. The most inspiring chat I have listened to in a long while.

Universal Basic Income: The future?


http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/conversations/conversations-rutger-bregman-rpt/10053806

I have found Bregman to be quite optimistic, and that is a very refreshing thing. I'm looking forward to reading his book, Utopia for Realists.

Riving - a Viking-age woodworking technique


Immagine/foto
Viking-age smiths used the process known as riving to reduce a tree trunk to planks or to other useful articles. Rather than sawing the wood, they split it. As a result, the grain of the wood follows the piece being fabricated, creating a much stronger item than if it had been sawn. It's one of several reasons why thin-hulled Viking ships could withstand the rough seas of the North Atlantic. The process repeatedly splits the log, first into halves, then quarters, then eighths

# Phill from GCHQ - page 59 #


Drawing - 966 × 1350 px - 565 kb PNG - Page 59 of Phill from GCHQ - A story within a story... and mixing up the commentators in the intrigue! Gerald Cornwall is one of three commentators and have been there since page 8 - but we have not heard anything about their connection to the story. The other two commentators are Oyster Brahman who is introduced on page 9 and Damien Dorfmund, who is introduced on page 18. I guess only @Jim R « Համիշ Ռոբերտի որդին » can make sense of all this :)

I know that the latest pages have been slow in the making and I will have to spend some time with my family on a vacation on Iceland, so the next page will also be delayed. I will probably post some pictures from the holiday on @my other profile, but to all my readers here I wish a happy summer! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and feedback!

Made with the following open source software:

Reconstruction of the Hjortspring Boat


A kind of war canoe with a rounded bottom without a keel. From around 350 BC - the period called pre-Roman Iron Age, but very similar to the images of ships from the rock carvings of the Bronze Age.

Here is the boat guilds page (in Danish) : https://www.hjortspring.dk/

swimming bird and the sun


Yesterday I went to the National Museum to take pictures of an ornament that I need for my (very much behind schedule) comic. I had to make a pit stop at my wife's shop to survive on the way back. This much heat in May means the end is nigh. Anyways?! I was after an ornament with the swimming bird that at some time in the late bronze age was seen as the animal that brought the sun around its journey in the sky. Probably an idea from the early Celtic tribes because this bird is often depicted in Celtic art. I also looked at torcs as they play a role in they comic story.

As a bonus I also took some pictures of the Hindsgavl stone knife and its cousins, and the beautiful sun wagon from older bronzeage.

We have seen the photographs

Families standing with their suitcases

Lined up on the streets..

Not knowing where they were going

From a home to barbed wire

Camps..

Desolation

Your story
Is our story

Sadly, this image is all too familiar

In light of the current political climate
It is crucial we keep this history alive

Jocelyn Bell descubrió la primera radioseñal de un púlsar, pero el premio Nobel se lo concedieron a su tutor. Es solo un ejemplo de cientos de mujeres apartadas de la historia. Cuanto olvido, cuanto menosprecio. Espero que mas pronto que tarde recuperemos la memoria de tantas y tantas mujeres silenciadas por la historia o desbancadas en premios y reconocimientos por sus propios compañeros de investigación por el solo hecho de ser mujeres.
Espero que mas pronto que tarde esas situaciones no vuelvan a repetirse nunca. Ningún cerebro creativo sobra en este maltratado planeta, quizás de ello dependa nuestra supervivencia.
