... it's worse than your datacenter.
Given the very low traffic, i don't care much, but i think it's a polite thing to do, especially that a few people are following my atom feed.
I need to reduce my computer usage, and that also means maintaining less machines.You can expect charlenew.xyz to be shut down starting October 19 2021 14:00 UTC with a redirection pointing to github. If it plays well with HSTS that i've removed, i'm pretty sure it won't :P
I won't renew the domain so it's going down around June 2022 in any case.
I recently found out that mpv was stuttering when i used it on my old Intel Pineview Atom box because the normalisation audio filter munched all the CPU time. I wondered if i could load a profile according to the CPU used, and finally managed to do it.
While modern BIOSes are actually tiny operating systems that can update themself through the net, i still have a number of old machines that requires either Windows or a MS-DOS 'floppy' to update their bios.
There are tutorials everywhere explaining how to do so. But in my case, it's a bit special: i use my own git frontend, and have to deal with remote bare repos.
One thing is sure; compiling software on OpenBSD/macppc requires a lot of patience, even with several machines and distcc. I can't add machines indefinitely ... but since the move to clang, it's now possible to use an amd64 machine as a macppc distcc helper, and i'm going to detail how i did it.
