"... It is nothing but a wrench to unscrew, bit by bit, the whole machinery of our civilization. Or, to use an up-to-date simile, Anti-Semitism is like a hand grenade tossed over the wall to work havoc and confusion in the camp of democracy. That is its real and main purpose."

Kids found this in the backyard. It had been sitting on the 4 year old's bookshelf and I just thought it was a dirty nickel. Liz looked more closely and discovered it's a 1930 buffalo nickel. She's cleaned it up quite a bit. https://retro.social/media/y3Yg1zcw-GjEpBU7Cgw https://retro.social/media/qZNWy5Xdt2R2r2-zzOU

I'm sure this has been going on for a while, but I just noticed it. Pretty sure there is a spamassassin rule specifically for this, but it will probably cause false positives for people who use it to be cute, which IMO is a feature rather than a bug: https://retro.social/media/P0VpnlkRhOz5bzWR9BM

I wonder how old this mod is. Second SID chip and JDOS piggybacked on a modded CBM BASIC. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get any sound out of the second chip with sidplay, and the machine has a fairly significant buzz, at least when the corresponding SID isn't activated. Any ideas?

European appliances make my tiny (for the US) laundry room seem spacious. This was a tiny vestigial room left over from the previous owner's remodel. It had been used for storage, and we'd been thinking about using it as a playroom for the kids. We decided to get a ventless heat pump dryer to avoid the cost and disruption of adding a vent, and venting air from the living space is a waste of energy anyway. https://retro.social/media/HkSc1punBWm7LVZlJ-Y
Forgot I had this little screen. It has HDMI, VGA, and composite inputs, so it should be useful for retrocomputing. It also has a switched USB port which seems to be able to power the Pi I run Pi1541 on. Nice to be able to avoid pulling the plug out constantly. Might switch to USB storage too so I can stop having to power it down and pull the SD card to mess with the files.
My wife knows me very well.
