I do remember one thing
It took hours and hours but..
By the time I was done with it

And then, looking at it
To see if I still liked it

Damn, I think I got too attached to it.

non-euclidean tech idea of the day RFC-1149 over station wagon:

“Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.”

Corrolary: what is the actual bandwidth of a specific station wagon at capacity using the densest storage where i/o transfer allows offloading the station wagon before the average round trip time.

Just got this from a friend of mine.

Sarcasm like whoa 

Yesterday my 8 year old broke me for a minute when they said something like when I grow up I hope the virus goes away, and, I just called the governor and folks I am happy to report covid is cancelled and we can all stop pretending it exists to avoid commuting.
