Thank you for your sympathy and for all the work you've done to make @PerkeepOrg into a such a useful tool for personal digital preservation.
Honored that I was able to tell my story of restoration and healing on the @internetarchive blog today.
Thank you @whanamura and the IA team for your compassion and for preserving so many cherished memories of my life with @jflindner.
Love. Loss. Memory. These are the reflections of @lindner who found himself turning from husband to historian after his wife Julie died last December. Paul's journey resonates for all of us who have lost someone we love. https://
A challenge to the data hoarders out there. Find the contents of the amazing music archive that one lived at archive.uwp.edu (FTP or Gopher) and was mirrored to mirrors.aol.com.
@textfiles - didn't see it in the boneyard. Ideas?
We've now entered the Cyberspace future predicted 30 years ago. Expecting a resurgence in Industrial Music..

If you want you can refer to case #457576616 It's closed, but should have details.
Intuit/TurboTax has a market cap of $74B, and just spent $7B to buy Credit Karma. They can afford to hire people to manually fix these returns...
Turbotax, you had one job.. Because of this bug surviving spouses have had to mail instead of e-file for years. I escalated with support. They said it would be fixed, but could not notify me when. Just keep trying...
By popular demand I started (manually) cross-posting to Instagram.
One of these days they'll have a proper API for individuals. Their current one is just super hostile...
Decided to break out the Orange Jumpsuit for Cyberdelia at the DNA Lounge. Crowd participation made the film Hackers 10x better and yes, rollerblades were in use. #hacktheplanet
The "Internet Gopher and Adversarial Interoperability" EFF Deeplink Blog post is now on Cory Doctorow's most excellent Podcast.
In 1991 a GB was ~$7k
Still amazed that we could pay for all that expensive hardware and had such lousy salaries.. At $30k/year 1 disk would be .3 SWE/y
Sad to hear about the death of Larry Tesler.
“Every application has an inherent amount of irreducible complexity. The only question is: Who will have to deal with it—the user, the application developer, or the platform developer?”
