A casual "May the Fourth" live video
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.

ManaGeR - The forgotten UNIX Window System of the 1980s
Lightweight, open source, and portable -- with versions for Mac, Atari, and a whole slew of UNIX's.
Just saw the latest Shadiversity video on YouTube, and it was funny and cool and (for geeks like me, who are both writers and game programmers) always full of useful info. But it reminded me of something. Something I've been meaning to find out more about, but been too chicken to admit on a community of super-nerds like this.
I'll paste it here (Locals sticks it at the bottom, but this is just for reference, lol).
I have a confession to make... I have never played Dungeons & Dragons.
I know, a medieval adventure loving geek like me, the community's #1 Narnia fanboy, a geek with multiple fantasy/adventure games in the works... has never played D&D. 🤣
This is partly because, as a kid, I was told that it was not a good thing. My parents thought it was evil. My non-nerdy friends thought it was for losers. It's also partly because even my nerdy friends didn't play it (or at least didn't tell me about it). It just wasn't a ...

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.
