My name is Andrew and I run 68kmentat.com
I'm interested in and , particularly consoles, computers, 8-bits, and Tandy-Radioshack computers.

I try to learn electronics and programming in my free time, but those projects move very slowly.


@niconiconi I do this but with thermal paste and staples instead. I call it the "when you only have enough money for two heat sink fins".

How to cool your RPI4...

All y'all programmers, and I'm *still* out here at 28 just tryna get by as a script kiddie from your crumbs of wisdom!

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.

- The 90's:
Small displays, lots of condensed text, Accurate inputs.

- The 00's:
Big displays, lots of text, accurate inputs.

- The 10's:
Tiny displays, very little text in big stylish fonts, clumsy inputs.

Ah, the march of progress. 🖥️ :blobowo:

The Washington Post's motto is "democracy dies in darkness".

A subscription to the Washington Post's digital edition costs $100 per year.

The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos.

BusinessInsider estimates Jeff Bezos makes $2,489 per second.

The Washington Post reports 86.6 million unique visitors.

Jeff Bezos makes enough money in a little over than 40 days to buy every single one of those 86.6 million people a subscription.

So it's clearly not lack of money that causes the Washington Post to have a paywall.

Which means there's only one possible reason for their tagline to be "democracy dies in darkness".

It's not a foreboding warning. It's their mission statement.

funny how my work ethic simply degrades the longer I exist in a capitalist framework

well, turns out their payment processor doesn't accept Discover cards overseas, and that's the only card I've gotten a replacement for so far. Oh well! I can wait an extra week or so.

ok and pals, I'm bitin the bullet and getting myself an with a combo of birthday money and some paypal cash I saved up.

I'll need to give my N64 an RGB mod, but I'm excited to use it on my Genesis and Amigas! (not to mention, upscale my PS2 which doubles as my DVD player!!)

i used to slap that bad boy into the IRC channels all the time. I even had a macro shortcut in mIRC for it.

whoa, I think that for the past few years i've been searching "whatever lol" every time I wanted to copy-paste "¯\_(ツ)_/¯"

but this I searched "idk lol" and was slapped in the face with the reminded that that emoticon is the *SEQUEL* to the original "idunnolol" emoticon: ¯\(°_o)/¯
