So is this a bar only for people under 30, or only for people old enough to remember Logan's Run

No one:

Absolutely no one:

Somebody, apparently: What the world really needs now is a new bar named

I would like to do something with two of my six free hours this week but unfortunately the 2yo woke up four times during the night so no

"[The #Atari] #A300 project [...] involved a new series of Atari computers which would work as modules and plug together to form a complete computer system.

[...] an evolution of the A-300 project [...] shed all of the expansion and modular design for a low profile, high tech computer system which became the Atari 1200XL"

low key frustrated that debian is shipping a version of waybar that strips out the clock widget. like, the one thing you absolutely expect to have on every status bar.

Okay, I've been going through the papers of David Ackley and he is kind of becoming my computing hero; I really hope he doesn't turn out to be a milkshake duck because I am loving this stuff.

This hole is my hole
This hole's not your hole
From the me-shaped start hole

It's hard to find-- I don't think it exists online at all-- but I reread Joanne Greenberg's "Certain Distant Suns" again today, and it remains imo the best short story ever written. It was published in "High Crimes and Misdemeanors", but I found it in Alberto Manguel's "Black Water" anthology; both long out of print, neither available at my library.

Good news: the 299s are fast enough.
This project is driving me insane and I'm just going to do some art instead for a while.

lmfao, a Cellebrite kit fell off the back of a truck and Signal found a bunch of vulnerabilities:

> In completely unrelated news, upcoming versions of Signal will be periodically fetching files to place in app storage. These files are never used for anything inside Signal and never interact with Signal software or data, but they look nice, and aesthetics are important in software.

awful joke 

who called it a burr grinder and not hamilton's revenge


exhale. Ok. Now on to the next one, and the next one, and the next one.

I'm still not sure whether to give up on this project or not. If I'm reading the datasheet right, the 74ACT299s *should* be fast enough for me to squeeze out the additional 16 cycles I need to make this work, but I'm having trouble getting them to go that fast. I'll mess around when I get some time.
