LB: The VAIO P was always... conflicting... for me.
On one hand, it was a #UMPC with a really neat form factor - ultra-wide screen, but usably-sized keyboard, and very, very small. And, it had a pointing stick, with three buttons as proper ones do.
On the other hand, the keyboard felt *atrocious*, Atom Z5xx was slow, Intel GMA 500 sucked, and Sony was very much on my shit-list for Sony BMG's music CD rootkit fuckery.
Also, the back pocket thing in that photo was completely ridiculous.
Okay, this is making me remember how much I miss the old Internet, of AIM and chatrooms and IRC and just--discovering each other in this bizarre haphazard magical way.

i'm waiting for when proper serif fonts make a comeback - when all marketing materials are written in Garamond again, I'll be happy
Compiling an old NFS userspace server for Reasons. So far I've mostly faught with autoconf.
There's a Stephen King short story where someone gets a call saying "can I have 10 minutes of your time?" and he says sure, and then the caller hangs up and he suddenly feels a bit older.
That's basically what email spam feels like to me. Phone vampires.
Also remember Borland's cool Win3.x installer?

Neozeed caught some interesting things again (though currently his blog is mostly teasing about it):

Shrek (XBox) was released on this day in 2001!
Shrek was the first game to use a deferred rendering pipeline.
Deferred is now industry standard, but widespread use didn't roll out until a period between 2007-2011.
Shrek (2001) was a game a generation and a decade ahead of it's time.
Given the effect that deferred has had on industry visuals, Shrek may well be considered the most technologically groundbreaking game since .......... Wolfenstein 3D https://mastodon.social/media/fGO26HkB6OvvBhdqVok
