Forum Archived

The original electric sheep forum has finally been put down after seven years operation, the last couple of which were plagued by spam. I am very excited about the bright and shiny replacement, but first let's look back... The archives (laboriously scrubbed clean please tell me if i missed any) are available as flat static html and browsable cgi as long as the perl stays healthy. It collected 11138 messages in its days, including the chronicles of sheep lore such as sheepocalypses (around message 1140) and the domain hijacking (message 170).

Drupal Sheep Site Live

The Electric Sheep have a brand-spanking-new Drupal-based community web site. The initial attraction here is the replacement for the ancient (in continuous operation since 1999!), Hypernews-based forum.

The bigger plan is to connect the Drupal user database to the registration feature of the not yet released 2.7 client. That will allow registration for premium service, for example, a pay-for-bandwidth system.

Yesterday I wiped Windows and Redhat off my laptop and installed Ubuntu Linux. As I clicked to reformat the hard disk I felt a rush of fear and power. Will it work? There's no turning back... Hope and liberty! A day later I'm starting to get comfy: email, calendar, bookmarks, documents, most of my life is restored from backup and working. It's the third computer I've converted in the past week, but this is different. This is my primary laptop, my second brain, the computer i carry with me everywhere. My life depends on these 2.5lbs of fragile electronics and software, and all indications are my life just got much better: video, sleep, and wifi completely work without any futzing. Only thing left to figure out is interfacing with my camera. Look for better Ubuntu compatibility from the Electric Sheep client. :)

Word of the Day: Octonian

Octonian is like Quaternion but with 8 dimensions instead of 4. They are non-associated, making them too exotic for daily use, but they turn up in E8, the 496 dimensional exceptional Lie algebra that was recently mapped, a calculation dubbed one of the largest ever.
