  The Thinly Sliced Developments
Posted by: mrthinlysliced - 05-22-2018, 02:27 PM - Forum: Development/Porting - Replies (10)

So I've only really started on the journey of trying to get vaguely modern tools up and running.

Originally wanted to get latest autoconf/automake/libtool which wasn't having any of it. So then I started down the rabbit hole of coreutils. Which brought me to needing a recent perl.

After much faffing, I have a latest single threaded perl:

Code:
[[email protected] t]$ ./perl --version

This is perl 5, version 26, subversion 2 (v5.26.2) built for IP30-irix

Copyright 1987-2018, Larry Wall

Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License or the
GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source kit.

Complete documentation for Perl, including FAQ lists, should be found on
this system using "man perl" or "perldoc perl".  If you have access to the
Internet, point your browser at http://www.perl.org/, the Perl Home Page.

And running tests shows lots of spam of course ........
then at the bottom....

Code:
../lib/vars.t ...................................................... ok    
../lib/vars_carp.t ................................................. ok  
../lib/vmsish.t .................................................... ok    
../lib/warnings.t .................................................. ok      
All tests successful.
Files=2562, Tests=1154433, 7984 wallclock secs (1490.65 usr 73.01 sys + 6647.84 cusr 578.03 csys = 8789.53 CPU)
Result: PASS

It's not properly packaged in a dist of course, and I'm guessing there is probably issues when I turn on threading/shared libraries, but this is a start :-)

  Realization.. lost information..
Posted by: uunix - 05-22-2018, 09:50 AM - Forum: Site Discussion - Replies (21)

Can you imagine, if nekochan doesn't come back on-line.. all that lost information, it's a scary thought really, plus I can't find Mr Angry my avatar for this site.

Mr Fox, about this site and what it can do. One of the things I would like to see is, [I think - or similar] RSS feeds to my phone, is this something possible?

  Nekochan Refugees - Here's What We Know
Posted by: Raion - 05-22-2018, 03:52 AM - Forum: Site Discussion - Replies (2)

We decided to do a more formal post detailing the events and keeping a log of what's going on so we can track all of this disaster.

So here's a bit of a timeline:

May 20th 2018:

Mid-afternoon of May 20th, 2018 me and several other users of Nekochan noticed it was offline.

I discovered, along with other users on Nekonoko's Twitter (nekonoko being the absentee creator of Nekochan) this post:
https://twitter.com/neko_no_ko/status/99...3929444352 http://archive.is/dJgyQ

Archived in case he edits or takes it down.

He is concerned about the GPDR - which makes no sense, as he's US-based - same as all of us.

We'll update this post as the situation changes/progresses.
