I'm a centrist: both the united states AND spain owe puerto rico reparations!

i need to stop watching videos about how awful the hyperloop is because it just makes me angry about america's lack of high speed or low speed rail

i want to finish this project half so that i can have another working monitor and half because i'm tired of this thing taking up space on my desk. i'm recovering my desk this year god dammit

oh! the rear legs of my monitor don't have to attach to the back! they can attach to the sides!

YouTube’s algorithm sent me this gem of a channel this morning: Nybbles and Bytes. It’s one of those PBS-style retro computing shows like Explaining Computers except for two very important differences:

1. The focus is on low level software programming on retro computers

2. The host is a trans femme

This is literally new new favorite channel and I hope anyone interested gives her a subscription because support our family!

I guess at least I can say that I only wasted ten bucks on this thing? If I decide to scrap the project, that is. I'm going to let it sit for a couple days to discharge before I attempt to reflow a few solder joints and apply superglue to some transformers.

I poked several transformers with a stick but I could not verify if any of them were responsible for the whine. This is very sad because the whine is the primary reason I am not interested in using this further :(

OK I successfully verified that I can adjust the focus knobs... I think the picture is a little better now. Unfortunately, it was not obvious where the high frequency noise is coming from...

I think I am taking sufficient precautions (actuallh I think I'm going overkill) but I am still scared.
