Still working on my full post about using the Internet in the #1990s, but I found an old blog entry from 2004 where I was talking about late-90s campus network safety and how I got in trouble for "running a server" because I used Linux to avoid all the pranks and hacking going around with everyone's Windows 95 computers.

@szczezuja I think you would love "Surfing on the Internet" by J.C. Hertz if you can find it used. Such a document of its time. And for the BBS era, "Masters of Deception" by Slatalla and Quittner.

@Sandra @szczezuja @kensanata uh, I guess we probably crossed each other on Story Games then.

But yeah, I came in late 90s on the internet and it was NNTP and Email, with quick dashes on (crappy) websites for some fan stuff around music groups and fantasy illos.

Hell, I met my partner of 21 years on a mailing list (2 of them, actually).

@szczezuja wrote a blog post about their first experiences online.
"So I was using internet search engines like Altavista, which had some algorithm improvement in comparison to ordinary webpages indexes. But the most of interesting addresses I had been finding in paper (sic!) computers magazines, what sounds crazy today."

I should write one myself. All I have is this:

Sometimes it's nice to go through and timeline by `toot tui` tool in command line mode! It's small pleasure like small cup of espresso.

If you're interested in #Gemini, a (small) hypertext world outside the world wide web, there are a few options out there. The Transjovian Capsules is a project I host that depends 100% on Emacs (you know me) or Lagrange (by @jk). Here's how you would get started:
transjovian.org:1965/phoebe/pa
(These instructions available on the web, of course, since there needs to be a way to cross over…)
I'm still writing the documentation, so if you get stuck, mail me, and we'll fix it, together. 🚀 🚀 🥳

When you want that old school Gopher-feeling in Gemini, just use text files instead of gemtext. 😃

I added a very long photo story on how to use Lagrange for a Transjovian Capsule.
For Gemini-curious people, on the web:
transjovian.org:1965/phoebe/pa
For Gemini-proficient people, on Gemini itself:
gemini://transjovian.org/phoeb

@jk, in case you feel like using it, or parts of it, or just screenshots, for your own documentation purposes, please do so!

This is my almost 1000 post on Mastodon. Several days ago there were popular discussion about automated deletion of older posts. Some people said that it should be default behavior. I don’t understand this, I always like to maintain full archives of my activities. Maybe nobody would look at this. But this is my path of activity, opinions, interesting things etc. This trail is some projection of real me inside this Internet avatar.

I’m wondering what is the best file format for photos on (maybe also for and whole ). It should be advanced and require much computing power, and be most efficient in compression ratio. Or it should be simple and possible to compute on every machine like first, indexed graphic file formats.
