A number of you have asked if there is a way to become a "Founding Member" subscriber here on Locals... and not just over on Substack.
Here's how to do it:
2) Choose "Annual" and enter any amount in the editable amount field. (Like in the screenshot.)
3) I will follow up by email and add you to the Founding Member email list (so you can take part in the chats and other perks).
The perk levels are $50, $100, and $500. See the details on the Founding Member post on Substack (same perks if you do it here on Locals). But any amount can be entered here and will count (as long as it's above $50).

Thanks to everyone who has take part so far! It really helps to not only support the work I do... but has already helped to bring down the average cost for regular subscriptions. Which is pretty rad.

How I described this interview back when I first released it in 2019:
“I get to hang out with the papa of Nerdcore, MC Frontalot, to talk about his new album, Net Split, his break-up album (sorta) with the Internet. We then talk about 300 baud modems on C64's and other things that prove how old we are. In other news: I love my job.”
Worth noting: I still love my job.
Back in 2017, I got to talk with the king of nerdcore rap: MC Frontalot.
We talked about Nerdcore. We talked about the Commodore 64. We talked Creative Commons licensing. We talked about all sorts of stuff.
His video froze, then unfroze, then froze again. But the audio held.
Naughty language warning on this one.

Remembering Gary Kildall on what would have been his 80th birthday
Thinking about the legendary creator of microcomputer operating systems and the BIOS.
Okay guys, along the lines of what @ArchieT was saying the other day about self-employed programmers and the eternal quest for a good idea... I'm seriously thinking about doing something crazy; making commercial and proprietary DOS software. The goal would be to add software to DOS necessary for it to be a competitive option for a serious main computer.
I've got some ideas for what DOS is missing that affects me, and what would be fun, but what programs would you need to make DOS your main computer? And importantly, would you pay for them?
I think it would be awesome to work on DOS software, and ship it on floppies and CDs, even if it is an unrealistic pipe-dream.
In order to post or comment, you'll need to become a paying member. This supports the work I do -- and also keeps out the riff raff. ;)
The rules around here are super simple:
1) Be Excellent to Each Other.
2) No cursin' or posting material you couldn't show on prime-time TV in the 1980's.
That's it, really! Be cool and keep it clean so folks can enjoy this at work and around their kids.
Oh, and nerdiness is encouraged. The nerdier the better.
