I originally wrote the util as a way to learn some rust, unfortunately, not having the time to actually learn it meant any change I wanted to do took longer and made me anxious. The C version is easier for me to work with.
Rewrote my NextStep icon extractor in C, parsing the mach-o file myself, removing the dependency on rust’s mach_object library.
So now, being able to mount the original file systems and extract the icons means I’m ready to start the icon archive!
Just looked at some projects on Github and saw that the site no longer advertises a standard git command to copy for repo cloning. Now they encourage the use of 'Github CLI' with the syntax of 'gh repo clone'.
No doubt it's a wrapper around git that will slowly gain features that git won't add because there is no need for them.
They are no longer a 'git hub', they are a 'repo space'.
All leading to the classic, Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.
I made a small ios shortcut to open gemini urls in a gemini proxy in safari https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/06f1007b20d5408096213c1bb676438d
Added two new notes to excbadacc.es:
Extracting icons from NextStep apps
Parsing debug info on Borland compiled dos programs.
Got http://excbadacc.es/ up and running, it’ll take a while to move my notes and journal over, but I guess it’s a start.
I’m currently hand writing the html, but started working a small generator to help with that.
Ok so here we are so far with a prototype Gemini client written in fish, Lots to do now.
Reverse engineering, emulation, retro computing etc.
Currently working on emulator backed remakes of obscure DOS games.
