It's a new tilde.day and there are more tildes than you can shake a tilde at!


Testing out pisg for automated analysis of ~team IRC usage:


Some History

Tildes like tilde.team or tilde.town are a modern version of an old style* system called public acccess Unix systems (of course, "Unix", should now be replaced more often with BSD or GNU/Linux). I wrote a history and commentary on public access Unix systems, and I will also start documenting some existing systems here.

* How old? The first pubnixes were created in 1982, well before Gopher and the WWW.


Some stuff I'm working on or reading about these days...
