@ajroach42 fixin' to fuck up a midcentury xenomorph

Ignore the messy desk. I'm working on it.

But take a look at major matt mason in his power armor!

Picked up a Casio CW-50 Disc printer from a local thrift store.

It's not the disk printer I had planned on getting, but it was cheap and if it doesn't work I can still get the one I was planning on getting. (And if it does work, it will likely work a lot better than the one I was planning to get.)

Anyone have any experience with this device under linux or OS X?

I recognize that this is a niche ask, but does anybody know of any makers in the US?

Planning a holiday party for my east coast coworkers. There are not many of us, but there are a few I've never met.

I'm looking for suggestions on events we could do.

@returntrip it is possible to run single user with 1GB ram. If be concerned about disk space, and I'd consider something other than mastodon, but ...

@emsenn oh shit reading this again, are we the same age? I guess we must be.

! This is how I'm gonna do my mornings now

Apparently 2AM Andrew thought these thoughts were worth sharing.

I'm not sure 10AM Andrew agrees, at least in the kind of incoherent format they are in. I think I'll make another pass at this.

@cascode For something else, and once I have done a good preservation, maybe.

Goddamn it Kirk! I'm a graphic designer, not an art director!

I don't think I'd want to do Kickstarter or anything like that though, becuase while I'm fairly certain this stuff is all PD, I'm not certain enough to risk a court battle over it.

Which is why I dismissed crowd funding originally...

Ah well. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

This is for the TV show Space Patrol. I should have led with that. It's 2AM and I've been incoherent for a few hours already.

Anyway. I'm not really even sure why I'm posting this. Maybe I'm thinking about crowd funding the preservation efforts, I guess.

That's not a bad idea. I could sell copies of the shows and associated comics, books, radio broadcasts, and reproduction toys to raise money to offset the cost of preservation.

A TV show is ~1000 feet, I have 10 of those.

25 cents a foot for 10,000 feet is $2000.

I'm still waiting on quotes from other companies. I might be able to seeing a lower rate, but it seems like this might get expensive.
