this is my semi-regular yet aperiodic reminder that this place here is a distributed federated version of Callahan's as far as I can tell and that is one of the most bestest things that can be.

Every one of you is precious and wonderful and unique and necessary and deserving of life and love and peace.

Anything your brain does to try to convince you otherwise is a mean trick.

Please try to remember this. Remember it unceasingly.

From the cool file, how about the Outbound Notebook from 1989, a portable Mac clone that depended on scavenging a ROM from an actual Mac in order to boot. Apple obsoleted these folks out of business ASAP.

Notably, the Outbound used a "pointer bar" that rolled vertically and slid horizontally for cursor movement. Also, it used commonly available camcorder batteries rather than a custom battery to try to make it easier for users to get spares and replacements - what a novel concept!

If Slot 1 is so great, why didn't they make Slot... oh, wait, they did, never mind.

I suppose if I am going to continue to amass absurd abacus analogues I should look into the organized local retrocomputing scene

@djsundog Spreadsheet simulators everywhere you look, really. Almost as if they're useful tools.

I am not allowed to look at craigslist or ebay for the rest of the week

Friday night, I went down to Smith's Old Bar (a Georgia Music landmark!) and saw Fairshake kick some ass.

I've known the singer/songwriter in that group for something like 8 years, and I've known their drummer (@TaxDan) for 4 or so.

Anyway, it was a good time. They have a good thing going.

@djsundog *whispers* break into valve headquarters and steal the keys

@djsundog Just think, they could've put all that engineering effort into Half-Life 3.

@djsundog For $2.50, there's not a lot of penalty to trying, lol.

@djsundog something something I call bullshit on Valve 🙄

"WARNING: Steam Link devices will only boot with a kernel signed by Valve. If you attempt to replace the kernel with an unsigned binary you will void your warranty and render your Steam Link unbootable."
