It is a pleasure to work with the help system of Borland’s Turbo C++ 3.0 on DOS. The descriptions are clear and concise. There are short and simple examples. Pretty much every help page is cross-refenced and those links can be clicked.
My solution to the 2nd part is really, really slow 😢 But it works so oh well 🤷♂️

This day one advantage of code was pretty neat looking.
Hope you all are doing well :)
Here’s some more #AdventOfCode nostalgia:
It shows the machine’s boot sequence and the copy process: I somehow have to grab the files from my normal PC and I do that using FTP under Windows 3.11, there’s a PCI Ethernet card in that machine. Then some glorious WinZip action to decompress the files. 😃 Finally the first two AoC 2023 puzzles are being run.
(Yes, there’s a GRUB on that machine. 🥴 It’s a left-over from some experiments with Linux ages ago and I didn’t bother to uninstall it.)
alecthomas/participle: A parser library for Go This is a pretty interesting library for parsing data into structs 🤔
Just ~2h55m to go for the 2nd Advent of Code puzzle (Day 2) 😅 Come join us!

Why is there no great possibility in HTML to enter a timestamp with timezone information? HTML5 brings us a nice timestamp input widget with
<input type="datetime-local">. But that’s just local time, whatever that might be on the client. What kind of fool came up with this? Almost good, mostly bad. Now I have the option to add custom timezone select boxes next to the timestamp input fields (or just one timestamp select box in front of all timestamp fields) or just ignore that useless HTML5 crap and go with an
<input type="text"> instead. Sigh.

I’m aware that virtualization itself is much older than Windows 3 (IBM did it in the 1960ies, I believe?), but knowing that similar concepts existed in my tiny little machine that ran Windows 3.1 is just mindblowing. 🤯 (Alright, it wasn’t exactly “tiny”. It was an IBM PS/2 Model 80. 🤣)
Interesting thing happening over on Xitter. Apparently some of the women in tech accounts are being exposed as being run by men that hire women to pose for images/videos. They would be invited to tech conferences but would always drop out last minute.
Makes me wonder if maybe there is need for a sort of verifiable web of trust is needed where influencers can be proven as authentic by others. This will only get worse as AI generative content gets pushed into our feeds.

Crap! I just realized I never made a backup of my Windows 95 CD. And now I can’t find that CD anymore. My collection is incomplete! 😱
It’s weekend again, time to chill.
Weekends means family time, long hikes and late nights with the TV.
I’m done with the long walk for today, and kids are busy with friends, so now I sit on my laptop for a bit.
On the descent we got caught in a sudden thunderstorm and blundered into soft hail. Basically got sandblasted. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2023-11-24/
anyways I’ve still got some other stuff to poke around with on oh.mg
Okokok, I added my twtxt link on my sites social media icon section
I’ve made a couple more modifications and I think I got it
