schestowitz                                        <p>You can follow this tutorial with just a breadboard, a TMS9918 VDP (video display processor), and a handful of compatible DRAM (or SRAM with D-flops) chips. The Arduino board acts as the rest of the computer in this setup. If you wanted to create a video game console, for example, the Nano would handle all the game’s logic. It would then tell the TMS9918 what graphics to display on the screen. The Nano Apr 20 06:34

schestowitz                                        <p>I’m always looking for ways to make my work more efficient, so the last thing I want to have to do is log into multiple Linux machines and run a single command on each. I’d much rather have the ability to run that command on multiple machines at once.</p>Apr 20 06:35

-TechBytesBot/ | Solene'% : Operating systems battle: OpenBSD vs NixOSApr 20 06:37
schestowitz                                        <p>While I'm an OpenBSD contributor, I also enjoy using Linux especially the NixOS distribution which I consider a system apart from the other Linux distributions because of how different it is. Because I use both, I have two SSDs in my laptop with each system installed and I can jump from one to another depending on the task I'm doing or which I want to use.</p>Apr 20 06:37
schestowitz                                        <p>My main system, the one with all my data, is OpenBSD, unfortunately the lack of an interoperable and good file system between NixOS and OpenBSD make it difficult to share data between them without using a network storage offering a protocol they have in common.</p>Apr 20 06:37

schestowitz                                        <p>TL;DR: Out of six issues reported, only one is resolved. The main issue received a partial fix, two more got fixes that didn’t quite address the issue. Two (admittedly minor) issues haven’t been addressed at all within 90 days from what I can tell.</p>Apr 20 06:49
