Thanks to various expressions of interest & support, I've freshened my old ForthOS. It builds its own GDT/IDT, has a proper RTC handler, and all I/O is interrupt based (previously it was a polled system). On qemu it no longer pegs the host CPU at 100%.

Ouch, mst.vsta.org was offline for a buncha hours. I tried to sync to Linode's S3--worked OK. But tried to use s3fs to access the media files--and that was a train wreck.

it goes like 100x slower than AWS cli, so it's basically a non-starter here. I may try again with native S3 support directly from Mastodon, but gonna take a break.
