20 REM I'VE DONE LIKE NO COMPUTING AT ALL. NOT JUST DOS, BUT ANYTHING.
30 REM THE LAST FEW DAYS, ONCE I'M DONE WITH WORK, I'VE JUST SHUT IT OFF AND
40 REM LIVED IN REAL SPACE. WEIRD, HUH? LOTS OF COOKING. RODE THE
50 REM MOTORBIKE A BUNCH. HUNG OUT WITH THE WIFE. DRINKS WITH FRIENDS LAST
60 REM NIGHT. OTHER THAN A COUPLE GAMES OF SOLITAIRE WHILE WAITING FOR
70 REM _SOMEONE_ TO GET READY TO GO, AND MAYBE A FEW CURSORY GLANCES AT NEW
80 REM EMAIL MESSAGES ON MY PHONE, I'VE DONE NOTHING WITH COMPUTERS AT ALL.
90 REM AND IT'S BEEN PRETTY OK.
100 REM NOW IT'S 11:15AM ON SUNDAY, I'VE JUST FINISHED BREAKFAST, AND I'M

120 REM THEDOS UPDATES. MAYBE I'LL TRY TO CATCH UP TODAY. MAYBE. WE'LL
130 REM SEE.
Let's hang out and talk about nerdy things. Linux. Retro computers. Old video games. Alternative OS's. Stuff that makes us smile. You can join the chat and ask questions.
Well that didn't work well! lol! My data connection took a nose dive! I'll get it sorted and we'll tru this again tomorrow. :)
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.

Went to my dad's house and picked up some more stuff. (A lot more. But y'all probably don't care about most of it.)
On the left, my Tandy monitor from my 1000. Now, if I can only find the keyboard.
On the right, the SVGA monitor we upgraded to when we upgraded to a 486x66 DX2. I really wish I could find that computer
This is really astonishing to me that both of these survived. My parents had a flood back in 2010 and I thought all of this was in the basement. But my dad found these, and a few more monitors, stacked up in my brother's closet. I have to go back tomorrow for the remaining monitors.
Just ordered these boards. This is my proof-of-concept for resistive touch-sensitive buttons on a PCB, like that thing @Sohl found on Hackaday.
Mostly what I'm doing is torturing the board house here:
My prediction is that all the individual buttons will work (except the two-half-circle one), the LED on L1 will work but not L2, the small buttons will be too small to press just one, and the matrix will work but ghosting will be a problem.
Just got the email that the fab accepted my ...

The Article & The Podcast -- all in one place! Fancy!
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.
