You can also look at and there is a lot of stuff over at birdsite. Also for anyone who has reservations please read Nils Melzer interview in the exberliner I am worried but not so surprised at the lack of mainstream media attention of #Assange, but I did expect more from Mastodon.

If, like me, you have been unable to follow in real-time the hearings currently taking place, then visit Craig Murray's blog to catch up and read his thorough and detailed daily summaries. These are not short pieces, but fairly long and complete reports about what is being discussed, presented, and challenged during the sessions, going in details of the anomalies and tactics used by the prosecution.

Currently no mainstream media, even those who present themselves as independent, are covering the hearings in any serious fashion, if at all.

Regardless of what you think of Assange and it is important that what is being discussed there can circulate as much as possible. Many things are being debunked, and overall, the outcome of the hearings for potential US extradition will have dramatic chilling effects on future efforts to publish such documents.

Starting August 2020 I decided to cut the amount of my hobbies a bit and refocus to just some of them. It's because when you do too many things at once, you don't do any of them properly. As I always considered ZX Spectrum, the activities and people around it to be the centre of my life, I started with that. So right now the czech ZX Spectrum scene has again a diskmag after almost twenty years ( - czech only). Then I patched the Prometheus assembler to work on BSDOS but without the DMA (it's already released on demodisk with the Speccy 2010 clone firmware v1.2.8 - I also managed to get the last Spectrum I didn't have yet - the +3. Several more things are in progress...

future: junkers and librists 

in the future there are two major camps of techno-radicals: junkers, and librists.

librists -- actually, libre-ists -- believe in ethical works from the ground up. they operate far-flung rare earth repositories and small-scale manufacturies which produce artisinal computers. wood finish, decent transistor count, moddable, open source. in many ways: the dream of open hardware.

junkers take what exists. the logistics of producing electronics are slow at best and critically unreliable the rest of the time, so junkers repair machines left by the capitalists. it's shit tech made shittier by age, but there's plenty of it so at least you never run out of spares.

"that's comcast tech," a librist says with disgust.

"zero net waste op," the junker replies dismissively.

I found a 1985 vintage Daisy Wheel recently. It's basically an electric typewriter (sans keyboard) with a serial port. I have no docs but it seems to have similar guts to an old Atari printer which has PDFs floating around. It's enough that I have sorted out how to print all characters, and tweak the vertical and horizontal pitch.

art is fun but I decided to make graphics... by typing lots of periods. I dig it. It has a kind of offset dithered look:
