Why, yes, I am flying with an IBM Model M2 keyboard and a handbuilt PS2-USB converter for it in my carryon. Doesn't everyone? 😉

(credit where credit due: converter running TMK firmware, with keymap modified to turn Caps Lock into "Windows" key. I just modified the keymap, compiled it, and soldered the thing together.)

Do any of my Mastodon audience know anything about plumbing? I've just had to shut off all the water in my apartment to stop a water heater leak; is this thing on the heater inlet a valve I can use to shut off just that and have my toilet back? mastodon.social/media/INoZNoCV

Unlike its better known cousin H. sapiens, the domesticated species H. esculentus has a dramatically enhanced sense of taste and a congenital absence of pain perception and survival instinct. Breeders raise them in pampered bands like the finest Japanese beef, and carefully train them for the climax of their lives.

Each year, they compete to be chosen, and a lucky few are allowed to carve and cook themselves for delighted and distinguished diners.

and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus snarkboost or absurdo or esoterica, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-shitposting ...

... were getting ready to perform a little of the old ingroup-outgroup, ingroup-outgroup on a weepy young devotchka they had there...

My lawyers are collecting a database of usernames that infringe my shitposting patent; pay your royalties now - isn't peace of mind worth it?

Just 500 satoshis per shitpost to 1CGkmyCH9AzJEhzxg4irkHWT8AY5S95E5N and we're even.

Reading this, I had three thoughts:

1. This is another sign of Twitter's ongoing demise... the continued descent into an ad-blanketed useless pile of noise;

2. This shows the fallacy with the advertising model - you have to get more and more intrusive to get people's attention;

3. This kind of junk may cause me to continue my declining usage of Twitter (and increasing use of Mastodon).

Well, the Internet Archive has surpassed itself: full in-browser emulation of the early Apple Macintosh has been made-available.

It is a work of love, beauty and, quite frankly, skill.

The Internet Archive are really making an effort to preserve our IT history.

"If you are not able to recognize fascism even when it comes wrapped in fascist tattoos and calls itself an “American fascist” then you are worse than useless. If you are not capable of defeating even one individual fascist, how do you expect to defeat an entire state’s worth? How do you expect anyone to believe you when you state an intention to end political authoritarianism?"

omg :heart:
