@jjg I love how all low-tech blogging platforms have absurd names. My own low-tech blogging engine was called Unsuitable, exactly because someone said that Forth was wholly unsuitable for web-based application development.
Perhaps, after defeating Ken's Challenge with my first-generation #Kestrel3, I should port/redesign Unsuitable for operation on my Kestrel-3 and use it as my Kestrel Project's blogging engine.
Once upon a time, back when I worked for Rackspace, my coworker named Ken posed a challenge for me and the Kestrel project: "Use the Kestrel for no fewer than five business days *exclusively* to get your daily work done at the office."
Since I cannot run Linux directly on the 1st generation design, this requires a bit of creativity to solve.
@uranther @jjg First, I will use VNC to connect to computers which have my development environment on them. This solves two problems: (1) implementing a GUI of my own, and (2) remote access to servers beyond those machines (since I can just use ssh on those machines instead of my own).
But, to use VNC, I have to build a network stack, and I have to make sure I have a graphics subsystem capable enough to support VNC's needs.
@uranther @jjg And, of course, I'll need to implement or port an operating system or language runtime capable of supporting the concurrency and/or parallelism required by the TCP/IP stack and network drivers.
So, as you can see, after completing Ken's Challenge, I'll have all the pieces I need to set up my own blog engine on the computer, since it just re-uses all those same components.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
