Today in digital archaeology: I wanted a PDF calendar generator and found one from 2009 that seemed nice, but the website had long ago disappeared. Luckily the internet archive had crawled it, and since the code was GPL'ed, I was able to update it to build on a modern system and produce page-a-day agendas for my e-ink tablet. github.com/osresearch/DynamicT

@th Just the other day I was thinking I could develop something to generate calendars!

(You also reminded me that all my current calendars have just become invalid...)

@th

Its pretty terrifying that the wayback machine is the only organization that archives the internet for the public benefit in the world (that I am aware of at least) and that the average person has never even wondered whether anyone is archiving the internet at all and thus has no idea that the internet archive exists.

side note 

@th

Also I dont really understand what Qt is but it seems very powerful

@th Would it be possible to generate more PDF’s like you have here https://github.com/osresearch/DynamicTemplates/blob/main/example-diy-planner.pdf ?

For those of us too lazy to compile the source code… 🤔

@th @bunny_jane

Oh that's super cool. I was thinking about using something like that for my eInk calendar.

@morganth @dustin the reMarkable 2 tablet is a delight and includes ssh access for hacking.

@th @morganth @dustin Whoa. That tablet looks great. I like that there is barely a bezel.

@th Silly question, possibly, but what's what e-ink tablet? :blobsurprised:
