Been at MAGWest all weekend here. Been running the PC gaming LAN here. I love doing this kind of thing at the events I do these for.

As of today, over been on HRT for ten months. It's been a fantastic journey this far, and I sincerely thank everyone who's shown me support throughout.

Meanwhile, off to bed with me. 'Night, all~!

Meanwhile, forgot to click on three components I wanted to enable in this install of Windows, Telnet and TFTP clients and WSL. Staying away from the "Virtual Machine Platform" for now because I want to use virtualization that actually WORKS.

@niconiconi I didn't notice it before, but I see you have K&R Second Edition. I have a copy of that book, along with Harbison & Steele somewhere (not sure which edition). The first one is essential for anyone working with C. The latter is great for not just language reference, but for language implementations, like if you're looking at GCC, Clang, Open Watcom or something similar at the source level. Great stuff!

I'm done with this trash fire of a day when it comes to this computer. G'night, all.

Finally got most of my system installed to the point where my old setup died when it was being updated. I need to go over the backed-up now-dead installation with a fine-toothed comb to see what I'm missing that was on that drive. That and grab data from my old profile directories (I have multiple older installs' worth of them!) to repopulate my new profile directory. That and mess with codec/splitter configs and I'm good to go.

Well, that's just wonderful.

Apparently, "Update to Release 1903" now means "Fresh install".

Well, fuck you, too, Microsoft. >:T

Meanwhile, upgrading my primary desktop PC from Win10Rel1809 to Win10Rel1903. I'm hoping it might (though doubtful) alleviate the virtual memory leak issue I'm seeing after running the system for several days at a time.

Oh, Microsoft, when will you ever learn...?

I swear, social media is getting so damned depressing nowadays...

Hi, all.

Things are a whole lot better now. Just a bit tired of running around for the past nearly week and a half.

Good afternoon, all.

Things are better, but I'm still cautious.

On this 50th anniversary of the Eagle's landing in the Sea of Tranquility, I'd like to recommend checking out "For All Mankind", which shows the astronauts' perspective of their flights, giving us a look at the human side of these men's experiences. One part crisis management, one part advancement of science, one part being emissaries for all humanity, more than a few parts humans channeling their inner kids' curiosity and love of fun, hear the stories as told best by those who made the trip.

Good morning, all.

This is proving to be a stressful day for me for reasons I don't feel at liberty to discuss here. If you want to talk with me privately about it, there are the usual channels available. Probably the best way to get a hold of me is by way of my Discord at ConfusedNyan#1414. Here's to hoping things look up as time goes on.

Anyway, gonna try to get something that resembles sleep. 'night, all.

This week's been quite the trash fire here. The KyoAni massacre is but one part of it. I have other things going on here that have been weighing heavily on me I don't feel at liberty discussing at this point in time here.

Anyone had any issues around the Fediverse earlier with CloudFlare messages? Had some here, but they have since gone away in the time I was out.
