A Linux distribution for the Raspberry Pi for the sole purpose of launching into UAE4ARM, preconfigured as an Amiga 4000.
A series of short videos tracking FFXIV from the project’s beginnings through to its disastrous launch and later resurrection as an almost completely different game. I could do without the crap TW jokes, but what can you do? Gamers are shitheads.
An excellent hour-long documentary by Kim Justice, which is much more than this sorry game deserves.
From Ars Technica:
It is by no means the fastest PC ever made, but it is certainly the fastest Amiga ever produced. The operating system harkens back to the days when computing was more personal, less corporate, and a lot more fun. Although the X5000 is not inexpensive, and there are those who will bemoan the fact that there isn’t a build of AmigaOS that will run on cheap ARM-based hardware like the Raspberry Pi, I think that A-EON’s plan to produce aspirational hardware is probably the right one.
Count me as one of those bemoaners. Kind of. I’m slowly building a system around a Raspberry Pi 3 inside an Amiga 1200 case (because I am an original and creative thinker). If I could boot it straight in to an Amiga OS that would be ideal. Instead it’s mostly RetroPie-based, and booting in to whichever emulator works the best.
This post contains general spoilers for Twin Peaks. Ordinarily spoiling a 27 year old series would not be a consideration, but since the new season might be bringing some fresh eyes to the series I figure it might be a fair idea.
If the world ending has any silver lining it’s this: no more ad agencies.
Inspired by this post on Mastodon I had to look up the story and it’s both surprising and delightful.
The ABC is yet to confirm what type of gun was used and if blanks were fired; however, paramedics said Mr Ofner had two penetrating chest wounds and was shot at close range.
Before the fatal shooting, Mr Ofner posted footage on his Instagram Stories feed of two guns on the set of the music video with the caption “faulty props”.
Nobody needs to die on film sets.
Last night, Hillary Clinton, the daughter of a drape maker, revealed the man behind the curtain. Combining the personal with the political, she hit Trump where it hurt – his brand, revealed to be as bankrupt as the businesses he bottomed out.
So far the CS6 installers do not run in the macOS Sierra GM. I went for a clean install this time because I could no longer fathom the stench of Dropbox upon my system. So here is a quick and easy way to get the CS6 installers running again:

It is the perfect capitalist model: the owners of assets such as hotels and restaurants skim off large profits, while the people who make those profits possible – the performers sweating in the city’s aircon-dodging venues – walk away penniless.
Bean sprouts and refreshing!
My favourite Beatles song. I’ve always really liked this performance, especially Prince’s solo at the end.
For the last year or so I’ve been giving Python exercises to my 11 year old. I thought I’d share some of them.
The core module of the iconic Mir space station, launched 30 years ago Saturday, was a cramped living space that could barely support two cosmonauts. But over the years, the station evolved like a multicellular organism, sprouting six more pressurized limbs from the DOS-7 base block to become the largest spacefaring vessel of its day, as well as the first continuously inhabited orbital outpost in human history.
On the phone from Los Angeles he comes off as friendly, chatty and enthusiastic about his latest project, “Triple 9” (opening Friday), an epic crime drama that feels a lot like Michael Mann’s 1995 “Heat.”
Flask is a micro web framework powered by Python. Its API is fairly small, making it easy to learn and simple to use. But don’t let this fool you, as it’s powerful enough to support enterprise-level applications handling large amounts of traffic. You can start small with an app contained entirely in one file, then slowly scale up to multiple files and folders in a well-structured manner as your site becomes more and more complex.
Tim Minchin’s new song in honour of George Pell, with an associated GoFundMe campaign.
Miles Brignall is a consumer reporter, not a tech reporter. Not that tech reporters can be relied upon for much better. But it does help explain why this is 20 paragraphs of (aggregated) rampant speculation, with 2 paragraphs tacked on the end explaining what the problem actually is. With the bogeyman warning up front of “jargon” ahead, of course.
There’s an actual problem here. This is a shitty approach to writing about it.
I’ve no idea how helpful this will be, but I’ll read it.
This Australia Day you can make a difference! Stop pretending you care about anything other than yourself and eat delicious Terrine Nullius, you’ll feel much better.
This tutorial series is the entry point for those who enjoy programming Assembly language and want to play with the excellent Amiga hardware, for fun and innovation.
More interesting shit that flies straight over my head.
Scientists Pat and Peter Shaw died in a suicide pact in October. Here, their daughters reflect on their parents’ plan - and their remarkable lives.

An information leak (memory disclosure) can be exploited by a rogue SSH server to trick a client into leaking sensitive data from the client memory, including for example private keys.
