I suspect the reason that AI episodes don’t hit hard is that the Linux community is filled with people who are extremely independent. That makes them prone to being suspicious of Cloud and AI. Even when done locally, AI wouldn’t survive the Digital Doomsday or a Gov’t internet shutdown. I won’t speak for everyone, but I am close to buying an RV and living off grid.

I've got a new Challenge for the LUP Team if you're up for it: Binary-Free Month. Make it a month without downloading or installing any compiled apps or OS (excluding Firmwares for Drivers or DRM). Everything comes from Source. Set up your own server to compile your OS, updates, and apps, or compile it on your computer. OS ISOs can only be used to bootstrap.

When I did my 32-bit Challenge, I allowed myself "unlimited" budget. If there was a problem that could be solved with money, I didn't hesitate to spend it. That meant upgrades for SSD on P-ATA and upgrading 1 GB RAM to 2 (System Max). The difficulty of sourcing these upgrades was immense and I had to buy from some very shady vendors, one if which STILL hasn't delivered my order. Systems that are forced to continue to run 32-bit only are going to become extremely difficult to support.

As you may see in Matrix, I’ve started my at-home game for the 32-bit challenge. So far, failure has been everywhere. When I first suggested this challenge, I was curious what distro JB would choose because Nix isn’t available. It appears I was wrong in that assumption. I’ll be shocked if you don’t incorporate it somehow. PS: Don’t let the Loch Ness Monster know I gave you tree fiddy.

Additionally, for the 32-bit challenge, I don’t consider Spinning Rust a requi. SSDs were available, albeit the prices were ridiculous. If you can put a SATA SSD into whatever 32-bit system you end up with, you have my blessing. I want the challenge to be about testing the 32-bit hardware, not suffering with spinning Rust. (Looks like you got a bonus boost from me. Enjoy the extra sats.)

I’m catching up on the last few episodes. Great work on the Windows challenge and I’d like to propose another: The 32-bit Challenge. Using hardware that does not support 64-bits, can you survive a week or even a single day? I’m imagining something from the Athlon or Pentium 4 era. This idea came out of the remarks that 4 GB RAM isn’t enough for a modern system and it occurred to me that we used to run everything on far less. My first Linux install was 166 MHz Pentium with MMX with 16 MB RAM.

I did something today I previously thought I’d never do: I unsubscribed from the Coder Radio feed. I’m a Jupiter Party member and still love JB, but CR has just become an hour of negativity. I get it that AI, Blockchain, and politics are negative aspects of the industry, but there are so many great things about being a developer that I don’t want to listen to a show that dwells on the negatives every week. PS: Boost amount isn’t random. See if you can figure it out.

I always appreciate the real takes and predictions on Coder, whether they are right or wrong. I make a few predictions too and have a decent track record. My worst was when I predicted that webOS would supplant Android as one of the main mobile platforms and HP announced they were killing webOS 2 days later. I still am bitter about that one. The developer story on Android is terrible.

I’m so glad someone else got my Internet Explorer joke. I had been looking forward to making it for almost a year. I wanted to wait longer to make it, but I had to balance waiting with the risk of someone else doing it before me. As for touching some grass, we got 6” of snow over the weekend so I can only just go back to browsing memes and listening to podcasts.
