Plasma 25th Anniversary Edition video:
“War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”
Smedley D. Butler (1935)
what could be better than a mascot for our instance?
How about matching emoji of Alex?
Thanks to @dzuk we have custom Alex emojis! (I told you there were more birthday things coming!)
Three years ago today I registered the mastodon.radio domain
To celebrate our birthday I am super excited to reveal our new mascot @alex!
@Atsuko has done an amazing job at bringing them to life and we have a server banner too!
More birthday surprises to come...
PS: I don't need any money to keep our instance running or pay for this great art, but if you want to help I'll be able to buy that raspberry pi 4...

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)
