in France, mayor of a small town sets a new decree to prevent use of #pesticide within 150m of any commercial or housing property after seeing that even inhabitants consuming only products from organic #farming had 30 times the normal level of #glyphosate in their urine.
Result: the local state representative sends him to court to force him cancel the decree. Hearing is today, to be continued...

Sooooo... the whole point of adding bdf2subf into #p9p was to get acme to display the Terminus font properly :3
Research has shown that using any other font is
However, since the last time I used #acme it looks like that there has been lots of changes to #plan9port in relation to font display. The current favoured way seems to be running fontsrv that exposes most of the system's fonts to p9p via 9pfuse and that is also able to do on-demand conversion of these fonts to #Plan9's subfont format. But somehow it really does not look good here with the latest Terminus TTF. Sadly X11 PCF fonts are not supported by fontsrv either. There is a subfont Terminus conversion floating around but it was not quite correct either. Thankfully, running bdf2subf on the latest BDF version of Terminus fixed everything.
For those who want the conversion I use and instructions on how to make theirs: https://git.bleu255.com/plan9port/file/font/terminus/README.html
Super Locomotive by SEGA (1982)
Also, will we ever know from what Super Locomotive was running away?...
Apparently only 35 PCBs ever made :/
Someone made their own What Remains 1.0.2 #NES cart. This is so cool.
Been years I've been wanting to try #mosh, and finally did now and feel super stupid I did not do it earlier.
"Remote terminal application that allows roaming, supports intermittent connectivity, and provides intelligent local echo and line editing of user keystrokes."
👺What Remains 1.0.2 released!👺

bdf2subf 126.96.36.199 released :D
I started using #acme again and am planning to maintain a local collection of tweaks/changes to #plan9port (though probably 99.9% acme related). I'm starting by adding bdf2subf which is a handy #Plan9 BDF to subfont converter.
The latest version I could find is 1.3.1 from 2003 and I did minor changes to make it build nicely with #p9p's INSTALL script.
Will update thread about why this was somehow super important :)
