• Metronet

    From Lux@25:25/22 to All on Wed Sep 29 21:40:47 2021
    So I updated the Metronet interface at Physics.
    Same great working new great look. CHECK IT OUT!
    Starting soon D'bridge will be replacing IREX
    Also have a new menu set in the works not quite ready to drop but its 10% cooler then the current set I have never actually liked.

    Working on a Synchronet script that will display Physics BBS lister from the Matrix menu. <B>BS lister from the main menu is coming along as well, need to finish that up as well Missing a few big sections still but most of it works.

    Was cool to see MRC on Titantic and also Absinthe. Lots of craftyness going on.
    So whats your project?

    All of Fido's back-office processing happens here with D'Bridge and hands messages off to Renegade perfectly, seamlessly.

    The guy who oversees Fidonet for Europe also runs D'Bridge... religiously.

    Can you post the address to Physics?! I'm not on it and...

    Nice... I'd be interested in seeing your work when yer done.

    I missed that - well, on Titantic anyway. I'll have to go back and check it out... Dark Systems [A Remote Access BBS] has MRC setup and it looks really nice. NOT knocking him at all, it was good work, but its actually just an instance of Mystic passing the user thru without login - but man is it smooth.

    So whats your project?

    Man... I need to start a new BBS project. The Godfather is KILLING it with a super sweet lightbar-style User Listing mod. But I've been slacking off... I haven't released anything since rCS-aFK. :/

    What I *have* been working on is:
    Dell Poweredge r330 [My first server!] - That will ultimately be a file server for peeps to have accounts on and be able to access my archives natively.
    Frame.work laptop - Super fast [to me] Intel machine... its bleeding edge, so getting Linux to work nicely with all its hardware is... fun? Yea. Fun.
    [Dont kill me.] Oculus Quest 2 VR - OMFG, I didn't know we were already in the future. Catch me on PokerStars VR and I'll bust yer bankroll AND shoot you with my AK. This sh*t is so freaking real!!!

    :P

    Lots of people use it; but everyone is waiting for me to port it to Linux.

    I get emails, Netmails at least once a month asking me about it.

    Unfortunately that is easier said than done... but with a reduction in my work schedule coming up I might hack away at it.

    Impure or someone should make him a getwell soon ascii.

    Congrats, hopefully its not too loud. I have a very old Poweredge here but its very obsolite and noisy.

    think its a 1600sc worth about 28bucks now days :D

    Ha - it is a bit loud; when running a few tasks, anyway. But its making a decent Proxmox to start with. I'm currently running thru building Linux From Scratch - what a fun project.

    The r330 is a few+ years old, but still powerful enough for my needs. I think I'll get into more enterprise hardware in the future... but I like playing with the old stuff, too.

    I tried that once many years ago.
    forget why I gave up on it.

    good luck, im sure you will make it rock, can see it now 2o for Enterprise. ANSI so fast you can't even see it!

    This message is kinda message up.

    Compiling Linux from Source used to be the only way to do it. Now it's much easier. Back in the 90's you'd have to spend hours manually configuring X-Windows to run at the right resolution and refresh rate or your monitor wouldn't work right.

    I hated linux back then. It's much better now.

    Dude, I remember my first RedHat and Slackware - BOTH were much harder to work with back in the mid nineties. I think doing this LFS install was totally worth it and fun to do. I think I'm going to add WPA supplicant, SystemD and some other softwarez at the end.

    I freaking added a HDD to hold the LFS install, and thought I could just remove the host OS HDD from the VM at the end, and easily boot right into LFS - but... I'm currently stuck at the very last step - BOOTING. I'll get thru it, and have learned a lot doing this project. Cool beans.

    I remember running Redhat 2.x and it asking so many questions about the hardware in the system, very confusing stuff getting scsi working and yeah selecting the wrong display settings could actually brick your display.
    As far as once you have it installed how stuff works is pretty similar.
    Just now you have package managers and stuff actually seems to work most of
    the time.

    Oh yeah, manually configuring grub. That was fun too.

    In my case it would never seem to have my exact video card and monitor in the list you could pick from. So you'd have to cross your fingers and pick something close.... which could result in Xwindows just not displaying... or pick "Generic VGA" and having some crappy resolution and refresh rate.

    This was back in 1995 or so. No idea what distro it was.

    in 1995 Redhat would have been publishing its 1st beta release.

    I got in on version 2.x lucky enough but I remember having issues with SCSI and the display.

    Debian was also very unhatched in 1995 version 1.1

    The public library had the catalog computers before that running some type of *nix as far back as I can remeber. Really nice Amber and Greenfoss screen Terminals with likely a huge server in the basement. Likely the most stable of computer systems ever put to use. Had a few hops to various librarys and
    you were at a shell prompt. small group of users camping in there with you.
