mastodon streaming on a #Kaypro 2-83 #retrocomputing
@djsundog nice work!
@djsundog Ahhhh this is so amazing
Brings me back to when I used a Compaq Portable and a serial line to my Linux box to IRC from my bedroom as a teen
@zigg that's what I'm doing now except with madonctl :)
Ok that's pretty good. Now can you get mastodon streaming on a fancy three course meal?
@djsundog I should dig out my grandma's old 2-84 sometime. Its been in my hands since the late '90s.
@djsundog jelly. How you do it?
@ajroach42 tcpser providing a virtual modem that uses telnet over a serial connection and telnetd providing telnet on localhost plus madonctl for cli masto streaming
Thanks to @McKael for #madonctl providing the stream from the toot-lab to the #Kaypro
That is fucking awesome.
@djsundog This is amazing
oh you dirty, dirty hacker.
@djsundog Rock on!
@djsundogHacking cool stuff for the sake of hacking it is the pure spirit of hacking.
This is beautiful.
@djsundog This is amazing.
@djsundog I'd be curious if #tootstream would work on that.
@craigmaloney it should - it's only acting as a dumb serial terminal for the linux laptop next to it - I'll install it shortly and give you some video :)
@djsundog I'm sure it'll have some issues with the newer characters on there. :)
@craigmaloney yeah, funnily, there are more than a few unicode characters that end up sending a ctrl+d to TERM.COM and warm booting the Kaypro 😆
@djsundog Oh that's no fun at all. :)
@craigmaloney I just gotta clean up my termcap, er, terminfo setup
@djsundog @craigmaloney which ones? :)
