@mckinley Oh well in that case, I'd redesign the IRC protocol to be more like a combination of what Signal is today but with SMTP like capabilities. A bit like what we've been trying to do with Salty IM -- So-called "federated" instant messaging, with group support and fully e2e encrypted.

I spent some more time with StarOffice 3.1 and it is indeed a bit clunky (of course it is, it’s from 1996). For example, a table of contents does not update automatically – you have to delete it and re-insert it. Sometimes it has graphical glitches. Font rendering isn’t too great.

And yet, I wish we would use this instead of `$the_other_thing` at work. It’s much faster (on my Pentium 133!) and more featureful. 🫤 (Or, you know, StarOffice’s modern descendant: LibreOffice.)

Okay, GPS performance has degraded a lot over the last few days.

- Time to first fix is a couple of minutes now, instead of 5-30 seconds.
- Accuracy is reduced greatly, probably because the phone can one lock on to about 6-12 satellites, this used to be around 30 satellites.

In theory and under good conditions, you need 4 satellites to get a fix. But in reality, there are rarely “good conditions”, there are always buildings, hills, or trees nearby, so you need as many satellites as you can possibly get.

It’s not *completely useless* (yet), but it’s not great. I think I’m gonna lift some firewall restrictions. 🫤

@mckinley Define "fundamental internet protocol"? Do you mean fundamental things that make the Internet work like IP, TCP, DNS, various routing protocols like BGP, OSPF, etc? Or things more like application protocols like IRC, HTTP, etc?

I was able to dig up StarOffice 3.1, which I used in the 1990’ies on Windows 95. This was the highlight of my day. 🥰 As you can see in the photo below, this CD includes a version for Windows 3.1, 95/NT – and OS/2! How cool is that? My CD back then did not have the OS/2 version.

StarWriter of StarOffice 3.1 can do a lot of the stuff that I’m missing in the tool at work. Like automatic numbering of sections/chapters and cross-references to other parts of the document. Essential basic stuff like that.

All the following screenshots are from QEMU VMs (OS/2 2.1, Windows 3.11, and Windows 98), but I think I’m gonna install this on my real OS/2 Warp 4 box soon. 🧓

What really blew my mind is this feature, though: You can rearrange your document’s structure using drag-and-drop. Here’s a demo (Window 2000):

https://movq.de/v/67523d0d3f/so31.mp4

I really, really wish the tool at work would have a feature like that. It would have saved me so much time already. 😭

@movq To be fair Twtxt has always been quite niche. Yarn picked up interest a bit a few years back, but then things died down a bit. I built `yarnd` for me, I continue to use it and improve it every now and again. But I guess the only uses we'll continue to see and that includes new folks are folks that give a shit about simple things, and see value in a slow, privacy focused medium? 🤔

At work, it is absolutely pointless to expect forward/backward to work. *Almost everything* breaks. Maybe some older Jira still works, but that’s about it.

(I clearly remember sitting in my car and waiting an eternity to get a fix, though. I’d regularly start the GPS device and then continue to load up my bags/stuff into the car because it took so long. 😅 Maybe it was just a shitty device, who knows …)

@movq Well I used to have a handheld GPS device, probably before I lost most of my sight. I didn't really feel that it took ~12m to get a fix, it was usually much faster. You _may_ just find that all this A-GPS thing is all just bullshit anyway and just an excuse to collect and store your GPS location on some random web server that someone else owns 🤣

The GPS satellites transmit an almanac, a (coarse) list of all satellite positions:

https://www.e-education.psu.edu/geog862/node/1739

That’s apparently crucial for a low “time to first fix” and, as I understand it, that’s where A-GPS comes into play: Downloading this information from the satellites takes about 12.5 minutes, but downloading it via the internet (A-GPS) is much faster.

So the question is: How long is this data valid for? It’s a bit hard to find information on this … It looks like it’s valid for several *weeks*:

https://flysight.ca/wiki/index.php/Almanac_and_ephemeris

If true, it would mean the situation is much less dramatic than I thought. 😅 I go on a walk every couple of days and that gives the device more than enough time to download an updated almanac. So, I *guess* I should be fine without A-GPS *if* I regularly use (standard) GPS for an hour or so. 🤔

We’ll see. This might take a couple of months to find out. 😂

If Sam Altman really wanted "AI" to be in the hands of the people, he a) Should not have made deals with multiple devils that turned OpenAI into a proprietary company. b) Sold most of the company to Microsoft.
