Are spinning hard drives really that cheap? I'm looking for a good cheap laptop for my mother-in-law and all the cheap ones are the 1TB+16GB hybrid. Are 128GB or 256GB SSDs really that expensive?

I love my old computer and my CRT monitor. But why would anyone make a USB-C Hub with a VGA port?
If I have USB-C, I expect a better monitor than VGA. Don't waste money on that port.

I'm so confused... I got physical marketing material mailed to me by a internet web hosting and DNS company I used once. WHY? The whole reason I used them before was the internet, but they can't use that to contact me?

Today's lunch is brought to you be the desire to clean out the fridge. Chicken fried with cabbage in an enchilada sauce over rice smothered in Beecher's Flagship cheese.

I enjoyed Next Gen. It felt like there was something a little off, I want to say not perfect but given the movie I shouldn't 😝. But it was enjoyable and a good reminder, we are who we are because of all of our memories.

My boss is having fun with AI and a receipt printer.

I keep recommending this James Mickens talk to people because it is a lot funnier than me trying to explain to people why the software industry right now is scarily broken: usenix.org/conference/usenixse

We were joking about using voice to enter a password which brought up how are symbols named. So naturally I had to go to Thorn. Which reminded me of the old ALT+231 trick. Sadly that doesn't seem to be Thorn anymore.
I'm curious if I could use "ƒµññæ¥Þ" as a password.

You know what modern hardware needs more of? Dip switches and Jumpers.

D'oh! It is the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, not natural history...

Did this count as my twenty-fifth game of ? Playing Predator vs Prey at the Perot Natural History Museum.

Twenty-fourth game of was Dinosaur Tea Party. An interesting dedication game. I lost, but I want to try it again.

Twenty-third game of was Mystic Vale. I won with 34 points! I loved the clear cards and the card "upgrading" mechanic.

Twenty-second game of was Skylands. Interesting tile/resource management game. I got third (41, 40, 39, 35)!

Twenty-first game of was Blackout: Hong Kong. I just barely missed second place. It was fun, but I didn't really feel like I knew how to win.

Twentieth game of was Samuri Jack. It was an interesting simple game. I came in last again. I couldn't get to the end fast enough to help and get any honor.
