If anyone use Arch Linux, I had a repo for a while with a few interesting software such as TI/Numworks/X16 emulators and tools. Today I'm also adding daily builds for some of the packages, so check it out :)

All the instructions are at https://repo.juju2143.ca.

Probably more like $200. It's made to be as low cost as possible using off-the-shelf components.

Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on July 18, 2020, 01:56:08 pmAs far as Commodore IP goes, I wonder who acquired them when they went bankrupt in 1994? I know the Atari Jaguar is now public-domain, but I forgot about the CD32 and the Commodore computers.
It's a company called Cloanto, and they're still very protective of their IP.

Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on July 18, 2020, 01:56:08 pmEDIT: Actually this seems a bit different than the C64. Will it run C64 stuff?
Yes and no, it's based on the C64 and it's compatible with it up to a point but the graphics and the sound are very different. It uses a custom graphics card (which will work on the C64 if you want), and last I heard it uses a YM2151 and a PSG instead of a SID.

Hardware / Commander X16

If you follow the 8-Bit Guy, you might know he's working on a brand new Commodore 64-like computer, and it looks quite interesting: the hardware is close to done, there's an emulator and many tools developed around it, and they even have permission from whoever ended up with the Commodore IP to build on the 64's ROM!

So yeah, I'm a mod on the brand-new forums and we're starting to get a nice community going on, if you want to check it out :)

I'm not sure. I also had the same problem when I tried to plug something that isn't the router my ISP gave me. (Which is also your ISP.) I suspect MAC filtering, or maybe some weird unsupported or unconfigured feature the modem or the ISP needed.

In any case, it's not super secure to plug a desktop computer directly on the Internet these days, unless it's been configured correctly.
6
Oh, you plugged it directly into the modem, that might be why.
7
Okay, it looks good so far. What about this?

Code (bash) Select
ip addr
(edit: we're checking it out in dms, will post results)

Step 1: Identify your ethernet device

Open a terminal and type this:

Code (bash) Select
lspci | grep Ethernet
That would be easier to google if you know what it is, and if it's detected at all.

Step 2: Check if the lights on the ethernet port on both sides are on. If not, either the port or the cable might be dead.

So, comparing the specs, it's about 3000 times slower than it should?

Pathetic.

You can transfer Python scripts without having to flash the firmware since version 1.4.0. That's what the workshop is for.
Oh, that's cool, then.

From what I understand, you basically only have Python scripts to care of, and apps have to be compiled into the firmware as of now, so memory management isn't super useful as you probably wouldn't fill your calc full of Python scripts. (But eh, knowing DJ he would xD) That is, until there's a way to do file transfers without recompiling and transfering the firmware again.

Remember back in 2016-2018 when we had ads? We made sure they weren't annoying and full of viruses, and as a result, that probably was the most hilarious experiment we've ever done on the site. Our members paid to have their "I lost the game" s***posts to show up, and even fellow forums Omnimaga and Cemetech joined in the fun. At one point, it probably paid for almost half of our operating expenses.

Unfortunately, all fun have to come to an end, and in 2018 Project Wonderful closed its doors due to social networks stealing the views away from independent websites. As a result, we had to turn the ads off, since it's the only ad network we thought made sense at the time.

Enter Comicad Network, who in 2019 built a new ad network out of Project Wonderful's ashes. I was kinda put off at first since they only seemed to allow webcomics and comic-like sites, but as I was setuping my webcomic this week (go read it!), I also applied for CodeWalrus (they allow video games sites, close enough) and sure enough it worked. And sure enough, we get the same kind of ads as we got back on Project Wonderful. This is gonna be fun.

So here you go. Ads. Have fun with them.

Also if you've read until now, we ran out of money to pay for the server again (life's kinda hard with this pandemic thing) so y'all should also click here and give us all of your money. Well, if you can.

Thanks!

Whew. Looks like they picked a specific set of requirements no open source licence can adequately cover. At this point they could create a new license.
14
From what I see, the code is under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license, which is kinda weird for code, but eh, it's legit.

Wonder what happened with KnightOS, though. The guy probably gave all of his time to his Linux window manager. Which I currently use as a daily driver.

Edit: I see a bunch of commits from this week, looks like someone picked it back up. Nice.

Been playing with this last night, that's pretty cool :)
