I have a few parts of a multi-part series sitting in Tiny... should read those sooner or later.
things that annoy me: squeezing the mustard bottle and getting the mustard delivered in the form of farts (NOT EVEN SHAKING BEFORE SERVING CAN SAVE YOU NOW)
Breaking this out from a thread... Show more
I benefited a *lot* when I was younger, in the simpler pre-XHR Internet of old, from people taking that sort of approach(*) to educating me, and I'm hoping to pay that sort of good faith forward, doing what I can manage here and there to bring other people in from the cold.

mastodon: where the only brands anybody talks to me about are fountain pens and archaic terminal devices 1965 - 1990.
"1966 #Univac 9000 Series disk cartridge prototype, 2.2 MB capacity. Considered too expensive at the time, the technology used to develop this ended up as Univac’s 8400-series disk pack, which held four platters in a large removable drop-in cartridge the size of a washing-basket – the first removable disk based storage system to reach market, in 1971."
since Anglophone Mastodon is into #tarot how about a #TwinPeaks one? quite like the designs here. http://www.benjaminmackey.com/magicianlongstoseetarot http://www.openculture.com/2016/10/twin-peaks-tarot-cards-now-available-as-78-card-deck.html

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.
