Still about two hours from home?
About two hours from home.
We're about to go home. We're off to a later start than I wanted, and we are leaving a few things slightly less finished than I hoped, but honestly we kicked a collossal amount of ass in two days and I'm looking forward to sleeping not on an air mattress again.
We finished last night about 1AM. That was, not including our two breaks, 6 hours of additional work. I was right.
We have to deliver some furniture, drop off my car, and then we can Go.
It's a good feeling.
I've meant to listen to and watch this show for a while, but it's a daily serial with lots of days missing, so I've had a hard time getting started with it.
It's also a "Comedy-drama" by most accounts, but my experience has been more Drama than comedy thus far.
That being said, I'm excited to actually spend some time with it. I expect it to be challenging, but I also expect it to be very good.
I dug up an old essay I was working on about depictions of the working class in popular culture, and now I'm finally listening to The Goldbergs.
The Goldbergs started airing on the radio in 29, and continued on radio and TV until sometime in the fifties (56 according to wikipedia, but I haven't verified that.)
It's about a poor jewish family in the US.
@ajroach42 maybe they want to be the Disney of PC gaming? Own all the IP that lots of people grew up on?
I bet you just _love_ the very concept 😬
@ajroach42 I assume that means they'll be integrating DOOM into github reviews.
Microsoft now owns DOOM, Fallout, Wolfenstein, Quake, Elder Scrolls, and ... like way too many other properties.
Open to suggestions here.
For machines that us 3.5" floppy disks, we'll allow folks to save their work and keep a floppy disk on hand (or take it with them I guess.)
For machines that are emulated or allow multiple user logins, we'll let folks set up their own user accounts. For machines that are network capable, we'll let folks dial in from their own machines.
The computers will be set up in rooms with staff, and I'll make sure not to put anything irreplaceable or fragile out (kids are vicious.)
We'll have two C64s, 2 Tandy 100s, an Apple II C, and various 486 boxes, a mac plus, as well as a pentium III box, a PiDP-8, and a bunch of portables.
Not all of them will be on display/operational at one time, but all of them will be on display/operational at some time.
They'll be set up to play games, and to connect to our local BBS. The selection of games will rotate.
I found a building I want to use. It's been vacant for a while, but doesn't actually need much work. It's just the wrong size and in a weird layout for most uses.
It'd make a perfect museum, eventually.
Anyway, don't think of this as a thing I'm trying to do next year or anything. It's just the inevitable conclusion of the direction in which I've been moving.
I write and build stuff.
