Over the last two weeks I've been developing a homegrown
twtxt registry server for tilde.institute. I'm happy to
announce that it's now running publicly:

via pip (pip install twtxt), and then after setting it up, issue:

to add your own info to the registry to help it grow! Your statuses
will be periodically scraped and viewable from the registry server.
This allows many users' statuses to be available from a single

time on other stuff ...
That's it, please take a couple of minutes to answer this ;-)
Have a nice day !

It's a top derivative that is even prettier
than the venerable standby htop.
I ended up moving the IRC daemon to its own server.
Hopefully that's the end of the issues with inspircd-3.0.0.
I apologize for the tumultuous IRC connection these
last couple of days.
If you've specified the connection by hostname, eg
institute.tilde.chat, then it should still work
as soon as I can get the A-record updated.
Everything should be A-OK by the end of the night.
Let me know if you're still having issues after

I've upgraded GCC/G++ from 4.2.1-20070719 to

gcc/g++ 4.2.1, they will be available as:
While 'gcc' and 'g++' have been linked to
the version 8 binaries.
I'm having some issues with the irc daemon after
