I TOTALLY want to use Linux next...

I'm using a desktop Mac but who knows how much life it has left in it.

I used Ubuntu circa 2005-2008 and it was great.

Please do, it would be really great to see those recommendations from an expert.
Gotta be honest, I've never actually done the install of another operating system by myself.

I'm not intimidated per se but I know it'll take a lot of research on my part (obsessive).

Ubuntu is based on Debian. I just use straight Debian. You can install any desktop UI you want on it. I chose the default Cinnamon interface, and it suits me fine as a Windows XP/7 fan.

It's the same as installing from a Windows disc, except you make your own disc. The distribution can be downloaded with BitTorrent if you're in a hurry. Burn the downloaded files onto CD-ROMs and run them. I made my discs on my current computer while it was still running Windows 10.

If you buy a new computer, make sure the hardware is specifically designed for, or compatible with, Linux. I was lucky enough to find the firmware to make it work on a non-compatible system, but there are no guarantees if you go that route. Best to get one that'll load straight from the discs with no hassles.


If you get a PC with Debian pre-installed, you'll have no worries if you decide to reinstall later. Linux systems rarely need to
be rebooted or reinstalled though.

This sounds so amazing...

Thanks for these awesome posts...

I do look forward to doing this in the future although admittedly I'm not in a rush.

Beautiful site.

It uses the Wayback Machine API to try and stitch together a seamless old school surfing experience on archived sites.
Yeah I was reading about it...

That's pretty damn brilliant.

A lot of it works but some doesn't.

I was just thinking about retro internet pages today, so it's interesting to see this bumped.

What were you thinking about them?
I was just thinking I'd like to make a retro looking site dedicated to my cat, sort of like a shrine to the cat.

I was fantasizing that I would own "mecattykit.com" and have a giant tacky colorful banner that says "ME CATTY KIT" and then lots of pictures of the kitty.

There would be .mp3 links with me talking in my weird ancient Scottish/Irish tard accent that I use when cute animals are influencing me.

I want you now. Hump
The freaky part is after I discovered Simon Roper's YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChnRk6m...Elm8phdSxw recently, I realized that this "bogus" accent I had started doing hardcore like a year ago when talking to cats and other cute animals is actually how things were pronounced in the 1500s "middle English" according to some of his vids...

Kinda crazy!

English had already borrowed a ton of words from the continent by then, mainly due to the Norman conquest in 1066. The official state language of England was actually a dialect of French for awhile. English writers argued throughout the 15th and 16th centuries about the need for borrowed words, some pointing out that English already had equivalent words in many cases.


Which brings us to Anglish, a modern purist English vocabulary that shuns borrowed words. If a native equivalent doesn't exist, it's compounded from native word forms.

That was some other guest who hijacked the thread with an English lesson.

I've been thinking about retro websites recently too.


I'm working on a command line script that pulls a lot of file editing functions from different Linux programs together into one interface. Things like video editing, audio extraction, making a GIF animation from a video clip, image manipulations, and editing Exif, IPTC, and ID3 embedded tags.


Naturally, I started thinking about adapting it to work with the website program I previously wrote. I had a few other ideas about that program too. I want to reorganize the whole UI of that site to allow limited public read access.


The file editing capabilities would add a new dimension to file sharing, as members could copy other members' files, and make mashups, memes, and what-not out of them. Or members could collaborate on large files.
