PuTTY broke passphrase automation!

 Post date: 2023/11/24 (Fri) 13:52 Poster: spaztron64 Delete

If you have PuTTY running in automated production environments, do not update past version 0.77.
The "-pw" parameter does nothing now, you can't automate sending passphrases for keys anymore.

Pozdrav, and welcome to LainNet! This place was indeed born from the growing dissatisfaction with the state of the Web today.
I really appreciate the few non-bot visits here, so thanks for sharing your experiences with the "sega mega" effect :)
Hope to see you soon again!

Hi from Montenegro!

Really appreciate a place like this existing. I've been getting exhausted of the vicious homogeneity of major social media sites and I love small communities of this sort.
Gotta be honest, I know as much about PC-98 hardware as I do about nuclear fusion, but collecting Y2K devices is a side hobby of mine, having grown up around a lot of them.
Always thought I'd love to learn more stuff about tinkering with those; the evolving tech is really cool and a lot of people around these parts would appreciate maintenance on their old gizmos.
Your post about Balkan folks not realizing they played bootleg Famicoms gave me a chuckle, I've been hearing "dobri stari Mario na sega megi" all my life lol.
I was really disappointed when I heard about the DMCA takedowns last year. If I had known about this board earlier, I might've dropped in to share the dismay. Doesn't help the Izzy collection isn't up either...
Anyway, thanks for your contribution to making the net a bit more comfortable again. Pozdrav!

PC-9821 Weebo Horror Story

 Post date: 2023/6/27 (Tue) 15:39 Poster: TheReaper887126 Delete

Kirito was exploring a new area of the SAO virtual world when he stumbled upon a strange object that looked like a computer.
It had a label that read "PC-9821" and it was covered in dust and grime, as if it had been forgotten for years.
Kirito, being the curious and adventurous character that he is, decided to take a closer look.

Kirito: "What is this? I've never seen anything like it before."
Asuna: "It looks like a PC-9821, a Japanese computer from the 1980s. But why are you so interested in it?"
Kirito: "I just found it out here, in the wild. I thought it might be something useful or valuable."
Asuna: "Useful? Valuable? I don't think so. It's just an old computer."
Kirito: "But it's a PC-9821. I've heard they're rare and collectible."
Asuna: "Rare, maybe. But collectible? I doubt it. They're just obsolete technology."
Kirito: "I'm going to find out for myself. I'll just have to see if it's got any hidden treasures."

Kirito began to examine the PC-9821, opening up the case and looking at the components. He was surprised to find that the computer was in working order, albeit a bit slow by today's standards.
As he was tinkering with the computer, he noticed something unusual about one of the expansion ports.

Kirito: "This port is different from the others. It's wider than the rest."
Asuna: "What are you doing, Kirito? What are you looking for?"
Kirito: "Nothing, just trying to figure out how this thing works."
Asuna: "Kirito, I don't think you should be messing with that. It could be dangerous."
Kirito: "I'm just curious, that's all. I wonder what would happen if I put something in there?"

Kirito took a closer look at the port and noticed that it was shaped like a cylinder. He suddenly had an idea and reached for his pocket.

Kirito: "I just might find out."
Asuna: "Kirito, what are you doing?!"
Kirito: "I'm just having a little fun. This is going to be interesting."

Kirito inserted his penis into the expansion port and to his surprise, it fit perfectly. The PC-9821 was silent as Kirito began to move back and forth, his face a mix of curiosity and excitement.

Kirito: "This is unbelievable! (to Asuna) Told you it was interesting."
Asuna: (horrified) "Kirito, what are you doing? That's not funny!"
Kirito: "I'm just having a little fun. This is the most unique experience I've ever had."

As Kirito continued to experiment with the PC-9821, he found that the expansion port was actually designed for storage purposes.
The computer could read and write data to his penis, which was a bizarre but fascinating concept.

Kirito: "This is like a real-life data drive. I can't believe I found this."
Asuna: "Kirito, this is sick! You can't treat a computer like that!"
Kirito: "I can do what I want with my own body. This is the most unique and exciting experience of my life."

In the end, Kirito continued to experiment with the PC-9821 and its expansion port, using his penis as a sort of data drive.
He was fascinated by the idea of using his body as a means of storing and retrieving information, and he couldn't help but feel a sense of excitement and adventure.

Kirito: "This has been an unforgettable experience. I can't wait to see what other secrets this old computer holds."
Asuna: "Kirito, I thought you were better than this. He's just using the computer for his own selfish purposes."

In the end, Kirito's encounter with the NEC PC-9821 was a reminder that sometimes the most unexpected discoveries can be found in the most unlikely places.

The Reddit meltdown: a long overdue wake-up call for the internet

Re: ValueStar

 Post date: 2023/6/13 (Tue) 14:22 Poster: spaztron64 Delete

No, it's something else. I did another backup restore, this time without running Policenauts at all, and the same bug happened again.
I did a badblocks and ddrescue test on the card, and no bad blocks are found. The only thing left to rule out is a corrupt filesystem in the actual backup itself, which I'll test when I have time.

Could it be Policenauts being a bit corrupt?

Trying to repair my Valuestar. Windows has been randomly corrupting itself over and over again.
Seems running Policenauts has something to do with it, as the RAM passed 13 passes of Memtest86+, and there's no bad sectors on the disk.

Hey, glad to hear it's been a useful tool to play the games well.
Madou Monogatari is a good way to go indeed, but you might wanna practice a bit of Japanese or use a text hook translator. Rusty is also a great game.
May I suggest trying out Queen of Duelist Gaiden Alpha? It's one of the best JPC fighters out there.

Thank you

 Post date: 2023/2/21 (Tue) 00:16 Poster: Guy who likes Touhou Delete

I just want to say I'm very grateful for the existence of the PC-98 Touhou collection.
I downloaded it last year (apparently January 22 was the exact day) and I think it's still the most efficient way to play the games.
I went through a few minor, but annoying issues when I downloaded the games and emulator individually (like the drums in HRtP being completely missing), so it's nice to have every one of those fixed.

If anyone reading this wants to make suggestions as to whatever I should play next, feel free to give them and I'll hopefully keep them in mind.
Touhou is pretty much all I know the PC-98 for. I've heard interesting stories about other games in passing, namely the Madou Monogatari series and Rusty, but I haven't played those yet.
So, it'd be nice to have some way to eventually broaden my horizons.
