I was just reminded by a friend in slack that these are of course DRAMs, not SRAMs.

Every once in a while I wonder if some vfx professional out there has the original models and rigging for the Bounty Bear, aka what Google should have been.

More digital necromancy: just spent half an hour with the 4yo in the basement swapping SRAM chips in the IIe's expansion card until I found enough non-fried ones to fill the first bank. Finally got 80 column mode working. (If 40 columns is so good, why etc etc)

I just explained to the 4yo what fuzz testing is, and he was delighted to learn that what he's been doing to all our appliances has a practical purpose.

I'm going to try not to shitpost in 2021, which is lowering my bar atm

Our 4yo dropped a casserole dish in the sink, shattering it. He proceeded to mope upstairs, pausing halfway up to turn around and proclaim, "I broke the dish. I ruined 2020."

hey - does anyone in berlin want a huge (prints on A2), old, amazing pen plotter? (image of it attached).

i got it when i lived there, and i've since moved and had huge hopes of trying to move it back to nyc but it's just not going to be possible. you can have it for free as long as you go and pick it up at my old flat, it's heavy as shit.

includes all needed cables and a lot of repair / maintenance / operation manuals that don't seem to have been digitized anywhere.

Heard this track on the radio last night and have been looping it for a bit now. Nima Fakhrara.
