Huge thanks to Lloyd and the Looker team for making this happen, everyone who told their stories, and everyone who came out. I had a great time!
Quality JWZ Content around 7:08:00, paraphrased: "We find an image, click on it, wait a second because this is 1995, and suddenly full on porn image pops on the screen. I was expecting a flower. I was shocked. I didn't know what to do. I looked at Jamie, I looked at Terry, but Jamie just turned to me and said: We are going to be rich."
Periodic request to any Mozillians checking in:
Did any of you save a pre-1998 copy of /m/src/CVSROOT? I didn't because it was "too big", and I've been kicking myself for that ever since.
Check that box in your laundry room. It's probably in there.
At GlobalCenter/GlobalCrossing back in the late 90s, our motto was "Ads, Warez, and Porn"; those three things have pretty consistently driven mass consumer tech adoption from the get-go.
Is there a mirror for the audio? ("Error: Media URL could not be loaded") Archive.org?
Could also be the corporate firewall I'm behind...
The problem is on your end, I assure you. But I will be very curious to learn what was going on, once you figure it out.
Evil corporate firewall. Works fine at home.
Almost certainly blocking port 8001 and thus the m3u and mp3 files.
Everyone knows that the only secure port is 80! Pfffffftttt
I'd love to listen but your weird little player thing works not at all on my phone.
Works for me...
It just plays music for me :/
Ok, well, "music is playing" is not what I would characterize as "works not at all". This is not a quality bug report. There's an hour of music before anyone starts talking. Skip ahead.
on rakaur's phone? cooool...
So, this is just whining. But I was going to listen to this, and it has a 'give us a donation' thing. Fine: you need the money, so select some suitable amount and ... log in or make an account, or perhaps I don't need to (but that's not really clear) and I could just fill in my credit card details ... which I don't know. Because there's no paypal, which I do know. Probably paypal is evil (I mean, obviously it is) but it would have meant you got money in this case (I still will, but I'm a bit drunk so I'll likely forget, so I won't probably).
Like I said, whining. Sorry. Also someone will point out that there is a paypal link, which I just didn't see.
Yeah, fuck PayPal. Thank you for considering donating, but all you have to do is fill in your credit card and billing info. I would not have thought that would be a hardship here in This Modern World. We also have a Patreon.
Perhaps everyone but me knows their credit card number, I don't know. I know the mail address Paypal knows and my password manager knows the other credentials.
No, you're right.. most people likely do not have their credit card number memorised.
But the thing about credit cards is that they come in the form of a card, from which you can read its number.
You could even go one step further, and store that number in your trusted password manager.
I guess this has now aged out (right when I managed to scrounge up some time to listen to it, boo). Will you make the audio available again, maybe for patreon supporters?
