oscarOK, because last week was a total bust (and because I've got jury duty and a DEFCON event tomorrow), I'm working to get something that's actually interesting today.
Gotta get some embedded code for work fixed this morning (yaaaaaay stack corruption under FreeRTOS), but after that, trying to slam through.

SketchCowI think I can nearly 100% script uploading handhelds.
Good for the bundles of them coming, it seems

SketchCowDFJustin: While I understand I'm never going to get approved for the Forums, I wish I could pop in on the shoutbox
So I'll just use you as a go-between
I was asked "Can we leech your bandwidth" and I responded "Sure, anyone can leech our bandwidth."
That's kind of the point of the Archive
Next, tell me what ROMs are "Locked"
And I'll unlock them
I think people sometimes forget that the Internet Archive has precisely one guy on staff for the curation, maintenance and functioning of the software collections.
So if that guy spends time with his buddy walking him around NYC, like I did yesterday, nothing else is going on.
But there's two other people whose job is to go through and notice "crap" is happening and then mitigate the "crap"
With "crap" being "something is eating 8% of our bandwidth", "something is spam", "someone uploaded terrorism"
And so they have some blunt tools to fix that
And sometimes, not every time, they go "Huh, looks like a Jason Special" and they ping me
I think when people say "Locked ROMs", they mean "Declared High Bandwidth"
And those are "You must log in to view"
But that's it, you log in
OK, I have to drive my pal to the airport (3 hour round trip). When you have info from them, I'll work with what I can.

DFJustinok [17:05]
SketchCowI wish people weren't so incredibly, hungrily eager to fill a dearth of information with a steaming pile of conclusions and then building, steadily, on that foundation.
But, Internet
Tell them Jason says hi. Talk soon!
[17:06]
DFJustinthis is probably all coming from reddit
I've been trying to stay out of that neck of the woods, last time I went in there I got Mad Online

can anyone see why IA isn't emulating this in DOSbox?
a friend had uploaded it previously and just added the metadata tags, but it's not picking it up and I can't tell why

oscarOh, Reddit. [20:04]

SketchCowVito`: The Mediatype was "texts", not "software"
Workks now
[21:19]
Vito`thanks! [21:19]
SketchCowWell, I'll make a round of fixes.
Also, I'm being reminded how much Al haaaaaates me
Did I mention how entirely tiring this aspect of things is?
Like, there's so much to do, so much to handle
Life so short, etc.
[21:28]
I think.... I think I'll not be working to "unlock" the ROMs right now
So good, congratufuckinglations, internal ridiculous political scene-drama, you did it, I'm going to focus on other stuff
[Thumbs Up]

oscar: As usual, let us know if you need any help [23:33]
oscarYup. I'm hitting it now, trying to make sure I get something out tonight.
I don't exactly need to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for jury duty tomorrow, so.
I'll 100% want testing help once it's up. Will it be helpful to host a server running my branch, or would you rather just pull it from Github?
Also, question for future work (NOT for now): what is the general approach re: browser compatibility? e.g. ECMAScript 6 features that are only available on pretty new browsers? Obviously a lot of this stuff runs best on newer browsers anyway.
Obviously, for example, Promises are handled with an auxiliary js file if they're not natively supported. But something like, say, modules would be handy for cleaning things up a bit in the future, but they're definitely pretty new.
