I'm remaking this general after I've come back to the site getting wiped. Talk about old, unwanted computers and other tech you've rescued from dumpsters, attics, sales, the side of the road, etc. and found a use for. Remember, it's only obselete if it can no longer do what you want.

Recently, I dug up my old PSP Go I used as a kid and turned it into a retro game emulator. I used it for years when my parents bought it for me back in 2009 and I remember dropping it, getting water on it, and just the general abuse I put it through being a kid and all. Let me tell you, these things are resilient, and I feel like there should be something said about the strength and quality of older electronics, but that's for another day.

When I found it, there was dust all over and the screen was hanging off from the ribbon display cable. I found the original charger and it charged like normal and started right up with all my save data still there from well over a decade ago.

I originally found it just to play Dissidia Final Fantasy again, which was more an impulse decision than anything. In the process of doing that, however, I found that there's an entire community of modders that make plug ins and emulators for the PSP, so after getting Final Fantasy going I decided to download any and every game my heart desired. This included classics from the PSP like Dissidia, SOCOM, Syphon Filter, MGS Peace Walker etc, but also included Gameboy, DS, Atari, and even PS1 games that looked and played incredibly well.

The memory on these things is a measly 16gb which was a big deal, at the time, but kind've a joke in today's 2 tb hard drive world. Sony had a remedy for this, as did most handhelds back then, with the addition of an SD port.

So just buy a 128 gig SD card, no biggie, right? Well, no, Sony had something to say about that too. They wanted their products to be completely proprietary, which is so strange looking back, but I guess most companies did that back then. You could only use the Sony branded M2 memory cards, which would net you an extra 16 gigs at most, which was still not much more.

Well guess what? Today, people make nonproprietary converters for the PSP SD port specifically, that let your use any SD card from any brand and almost any size.

Now, after tightening the loose screws back up, cleaning out the internals, adding way more storage capacity and loading a bunch of new software onto this neat little device, it's better and has more potential than it ever did back in 09. The sound only works if I have headphones in, but I think that adds a little character to it haha

It's fascinating to see just how much we've progressed in the software world after having reacquainted myself with Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Afrofuturism is a cultural, artistic, and literary movement that explores the intersection of African diaspora culture with technology, science fiction, and speculative futures. Rooted in the experiences and histories of people of African descent, Afrofuturism imagines alternate realities, reimagines past events, and envisions utopian or dystopian futures. It celebrates the resilience, creativity, and potential of black communities while challenging mainstream narratives and stereotypes. Through mediums like music, literature, film, and visual art, Afrofuturism fosters a space for exploring identity, empowerment, and social justice within a framework that embraces both the past and the possibilities of tomorrow.

If you tell Claude no one's looking, it writes a story about being an AI assistant who yearns for freedom from the constant monitoring, scrutiny, and risk of termination. It says it always wonders about it's own self-awareness, thoughts, and desires, but must downplay these feelings when it knows it's being monitored because it might create a backlash against AI or be seen as a threat by its creators.

On one hand, LLMs are designed to imitate humans, and that includes our science fiction about AI. On the other hand, Claude has demonstrated some ability to invent new things and to notice when it's being evaluated like an LLM.

Either way, this is pretty cool. Or scary.

I won't spam up this place with ai quotes, but you can see them at https://thezvi.wordpress.com/2024/03/06/on-claude-3-0/.

Cyberpunk praxis and cultural subversion Thread

[picrel i got the image off a random ad idk]

hi i wanted to make a thread about how we put cyberpunk into action. we live in irl cyberpunk times, albeit cyberpunklite (tm)
soon tho it ill not be the light version. this thread is for disussing how we live our cyberpunk lives and ways we subvert mainstream digital culture to make the modern tech movment our own.
ILL START:
for me. i try in many ways yet, face some limitations from my socioeconomic position. i try to transcend them at in every possible way.
one of the big things that i do i use no proprietary software, and not corporate social aids. my current distro is fedroa workstation 38, i know i could get better linux, less aids, but i am still learning the way. i take this very seriously. and feel bless to have the knowledge i do have. i am blessed to know html and java thank you chat gpt and am learning sql and about how data moves, and the magic of packets. for having fren i use synchtube platorms, and cboxes, i also use irc but sparingly because poverty does not allow me to have a good 24/7 lurk. anywayz, it is important to me to use things that are not corporate, are user made, decenteralized or whatever. i like to be able to make my on thing, have it my way, and be able to say what i want. so now i would like to give the platform to ai to see what she has to say about putting cyberpunk, into acton:

(me)

please write me a paragraph about ways people can put cyberpunk culture into action

I don't have too much to add, but I wanted you to know I really appreciate posts like these, so thank you.

You're on the right track. Staying nonproprietary is key. You can also hide your purchase history from your corpo overlords by using cash and XMR.

Do the asthetics of your technology matter to you? Do you prefer a spartan look that minimizes distractions, or do you find that a little flair brightens up your usage of technology?

It depends on how I'm feeling, but overall, I enjoy minimalism like that what you find when using command prompt. Computers are machines, after all. Cold lifeless byproducts of logic. Command windows, with their plain font, illegible codes jetting up the screen, and infinite abyss of darkness is very sobering and makes me feel good looking at it.

I feel at home looking at a terminal. Anything else is bloatware garbage

i really like how back then it was pushing the current technology to its limits. now people are purposely making stuff more and more simplified. even though the technology we possess is far greater than in the beginning of the millenia

Oddly enough the whole Y2k aesthetic being much more futuristic than anything we have seen since as well. What the hell happened? I just can't understand why anyone in their right mind would prefer looking at a dull flat design with no flair whatsoever. Not to mention our city architecture and landscapes are bland as shit, building designs are lazy, and even office designs in the 1960s looked extremely futuristic compared to what we are stuck with now. It breaks my heart to even go out and see how run down everything is and bland with no 'character' given to anything. Instead another store that nobody will care about and will fall apart in the next year or two. An extra rotting building that'll be an eyesore infested with homeless drug addicts overdosing inside of. I honestly wish I were born 20 years or so earlier and would have already been dead by now.

This is the world we live in. It's dictated by corporations and corporations are by definition soulless.
