“At George Washington University this fall, 269 students enrolled in a geography class were supposed to have free access to their course textbook… via a link on the course’s… site. But when many clicked on the link, the book was unavailable.”

You will rarely hear five words with so much staggering effort and weight behind them as "thousands of books a day"

4AM has begun work on a new second stream of released, preserved, and emulated software: MOOF A DAY. These are early-era Macintosh commercial releases that in many cases never got a non-cracked preserved release, and they are now.

This is big, big. These are original Mac works that have famous names (or famous names on other platforms) and can now be booted in disk image format in MAME and therefore Internet Archive.

(Due to the way the mouse works, go full-screen when playing them.)

Note that 4AM is basically driven off twitter and now makes announcements exclusively through Mastodon -follow them over there to keep up, or wait for me to inevitably go on blast every time they do another amazing thing.

I've received news that @ernie1241, who gifted Internet Archive hundreds of thousands of pages of FOIA requests over the years (archive.org/details/@ernie1241) is in hospice care and on his way along, but I see he's still kicking on twitter. Please thank Ernie if his work helped you.

If you haven't encountered Ernie's wild and wonderful work, he's done FOIA requests for over 900,000 pages. Many have been digitized, and I pledge here to finish that work.

I'd like to thank the Library of Congress for having lizzo play a crystal flute from their archives, because it has given me dozens of craphead tweeting accounts thinking this is bad that I can block

Season 16 of American Dad is pretty flat, as expected, but @GirlMacFarlane's performance (and the writing behind it) for episode 11 was off the charts fantastic.

I hope somebody got photos of these things. They were works of art. I had planned to do some extensive photography but I couldn't find the time.
