Yeah, but some days, I miss the simplicity and compactness of the Amiga OS and it's single 256/512k ROM. Operating systems these days are just amazingly bloated for what they are. #DailyRant

Happy NINTH birthday to my big girl. We may not get to see each other often, but I still love you all the same.

Now, if you need me, I'll be over here overcoming my annual bout of denial over said event.

Thanks for being there when I needed C64 momentary switches and spst flip switches for my Amiga PAL/NTSC toggle. And all the free 9-volt batteries I could never bring myself to buy but you gave me for free.

And thanks for all the cheaper, Tandy handheld game rip offs too.

But most of all? Thanks for the TRS-80 Model III With 16K RAM and cassette drive - without which I would not have a life filled with computer programming or love therein.

You may not he missed. But you will be remembered for greatness (kinda like Electronic Arts).

Interesting data points for the solid-state among us.
I never thought this whole tech journalism gig would turn me into a mass murderer. Yet here I am, with the blood of six SSDs on my hands, and that's not even the half of it. You see, these were not crimes of passion or rage, nor were they products of accident. More than 18 months ago, ...

Song of the Day™

Admittedly, I'm not much of a bluegrass fan, but I have to admit that this unique fusion of classical string and bluegrass guitar -- combined with the happy-feel-good major key, soaring vocals, and smiling faces -- makes for one kick ass little piece.  This is how music should be.

Ladies and germs, I give you Steve Martin and The Krüger Brothers.
