"The user manual contains some significant errors. Most of these are due to last minute changes to achieve a greater degree of compatibility with IBM's implementation of MS-DOS (PC DOS). This includes the use
of "\" instead of "/" as the path separator, and "/" instead of "-"
as the switch character."
it's always kind of interesting when you encounter a fossil trace of someone's Giant Mistake as it happened.

This song just keeps on staying relevant and I should probably do a real recording of it someday. https://soundcloud.com/plaidfluff/strategies-to-live
Someone left a pizza on the sidewalk and there was a fat pigeon next to it. The pizza was way bigger than the pigeon could eat. Another pigeon came up and started to peck at it and the first pigeon fought it off, unwilling to share its random windfall.
For anyone getting Commodore 1541 disk drive advice from me: I was wrong here. 0: before the filename helps with the save-with-replace bug, which was caused by the 1541 having the ROMs of a double disk drive.
0: doesn't do anything about the drive head knocking against the case, which nothing helps with. Oddly, Commodore used a cheap-and-dirty scheme to get the head back to track zero. It would have the head move out 40 tracks, when a disk had at most 35 tracks.

Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Fibro-spoony, queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
