105GB used by my dedupe special vdev

Recovered 22.9TB thanks to dedupe. Free space before 5TB, Free space now 16TB. I've also now moved my game VM games from a seperate SSD to the raidz3. (6.4 TB) and setup my Linux VM and game drive for that (1.5TB). Steam on the Linux VM is updating now and catching up since I haven't been able to do for months since downloading Steam games on Linux over samba has been broken for months.

Working on getting my Synology NAS synced with these changes now.

Dogsitting for 10 days so don't have my equipment for testing but I am buying parts and working on deciding on how I want TrueNAS set up on three of my QNAP NAS for offsite backups.

For my TS-670 just use a Samsung Fit plugged into the USB3 port instead of the onboard USB2 header, decided NOT to use a M.2 USB enclosure connected to the USB2 header but instead to use 2x M.2 in a M.2 pcie adapter for the system dataset (it's overkill but oh well). Decided not to use a combine 10GBE w/ M.2 card in this machine since likely not much of a speed benefit for 10GB since transferring from HDs. Also replace the fans with Noctua 92mm fans. The latest TrueNAS 13 installed fine on the TS-670.

For my TVS-671 since it has 2x PCIe then keeping the 10GBE card, adding a M.2 card with 2x M.2 and the Samsung Fit plugged into the USB3. Also replace the fans with Noctua 92mm fans.

For my QNAP TVS-872XT I think I've decided to switch from Quts Hero to TrueNAS and as such I'll boot TrueNAS from the onboard 2x M.2 and also use it for system dataset, use a M.2 card for DDT for dedupe, I already upgraded the memory to 64gb and if I need to upgrade the processor for dedupe then I'll do that but likely won't be needed since it's just for backup purposes.

Once I've got the above done then need to update the TrueNAS thread.

Things like this just keep me a github lurker at most. Any browser that is not a current version of the big four* is having trouble with github again.

Think really what it comes down to is there needs to be working web browsers for older platforms and dropping support needs to be recognized by these sites since supporting things which are not the latest and greatest can provide great benefits through edge cases and/or performance optimization but obviously that is hard to quantify so mabye we need some powerpoint to get the point across.

If one guy can get almost single handedly keep palemoon working on XP and supporting modern browsing and another can port Chrome to OS/2 and others can code Chrome to work on XP and another can program a proxy for older browsers to access modern sites then it shouldn't be very difficult for those systems to still be supported instead of support being dropped so that yet even more people and systems can be purposely ignored.

Github is nothing special the equivalent can be spun up elsewhere but there wouldn't be anyone on it and there would be no funding and even if there were most projects that were forked to it that were updated to work likely wouldn't be accepted by the source. Mabye something could be looked into with Archive.org to setup a github equivalent for preservation, maintaining and updating code. Hostile to compatiblity source project or website wouldn't have a say as long as the license was followed.

If only I won the lottery I'd put a percentage towards that heh.

can confirm github browser breakage is terrible for software development. I especially had trouble getting in that auth thing they now mandate after a year to push at all....

One can be a smart-ass and suggest Gitlab and Bitbucket, but they do surprise browser regressions too!

To put it in context, I was a bit torn between different perspectives. On one hand I am considering to nag github support about it, on the other hand; last time I did something like that, I felt like a fool for even trying. On one hand it is good to see a surprising amount of retro-computing projects progressing there, on the other hand I considered github a lost cause since microsoft bought it

I thought html5 was supposed to do away with a lot of those browser specific javascript tricks of the past, and to get a more desirable web-interfacing standard. As in; documented, open, non-profit, less-malware vulnerable, testable, etc.

Fortunately projects like palemoon/newmoon can do more then just polyfill with addons. And so far the people involved did a tremendous job, like you said. The guy I quoted before meant it in the context of preferring to use an older version of Firefox/Chrome, in which case he can only toy with polyfill addons, as the main browser will remain what it is.

Nasty. Did not know they had such checks.
Yes I remember Gitlab having the same issues as github, also leading to polyfill workarounds to get it going again. Since then about everything seemingly transferred to github, for other reasons I don't know much about.

Did some testing and looks like this is the latest working version of eduke32 for Vista, 7 and 8.

eduke32_win32_20211006-9651-a891732fd ( < OpenGL 2.0)
eduke32_win32_20211112-9782-661883a52 (> OpenGL 2.0)

Almost at the point where I can resume work on the repos, just found a bit of time today after finishing up the sync for the last offsite NAS.
Likely the above breakage for newer builds is when they updated their build environment and not within the code itself.

For testing in Vmware it looks like this is the last build that works on Windows 10 and 11, unknown about real hardware:
eduke32_win32_20220412-9992-4a517bf9a works
