First day in long time where I can focus on disroot (I quit my dayjob). Going through support ticket queue answering all the tickets that have been patiently (or not) waiting for a while. It's a good way to start new chapter in life.

I'm creating embedded Linux distribution from scratch that fits on a single floppy (1MB at the moment), runs latest kernel and can boot on a 486DX PC.

More info soon with an easy to understand tutorial!

#Linux #Embedded #FDD

Also I love the overall design of this device. Bootup animation is a water drop video (1bit black and white, no less), and the back cover is sttlized to look like a water ripples. That's all under a transparent piece of plastic, thet makes it look really cool IMO

I think the cutest thing on this device is how it has a read-only simple PIM included. gnomad2 doesn't seem to allow syncing with it, but I absolutely love the idea of using this unironically back in the day

1. The only way to actually put music on it is to use `gnomad2`, which is dated (for example Fedora doesn't package it anymore) and any uploads are quite slow.
2. There's an option to use it as a USB memory device. Player simply creates a small separate partition on its disk and it's completely separate from the actual media player functionality (no .mp3 uploads this way!)
3. You need a corded heaphones *without* a microphone. A minijack with more than 3 pins just doesn't seem to work correctly.

I've tried multiple times, to no avail. I let it sit in a drawer for another few months, then tried it again today, and... it magically worked! It's really quite a cool little machine.

And now it's not only drop-proof (as it uses flash memory now instead of a literal spinning platters inside), but also bumped from 4GB to 16GB. Its firmware didn't even blinked at this upgrade!

Of course it shows its age.(2/3)

I love the feeling of old things still working.

I've found this fella in a drawer some time ago. It wasn't working - the hard drive inside didn't survive when it was dropped on the floor some time ago. Turns out it's possible to (carefully) disassemble it and replace with a Compact Flash card, as it uses a standard PATA interface. Add to that a new battery from AliExpress and... somehow I wasn't able to flash it with a new firmware. (1/2)

Interesting news from the #xmpp world: there is been funding to work on improving / bringing back user portability for xmpp. XMPP Account Portability funded by NGI DAPSI

Maybe it's not supported anymore, but definitely it's fun!
