Nothing that happens in politics surprises me anymore.

A working Apple Lisa 1 is a rare beast to behold. If I had to guess, I'd say there are less than two dozen in the world. 
Take a journey into the past and look at how the Lisa 1 worked - it is something that you would not have had much chance to do even back in 1983.

+rare avis I tend to agree with most of that, but I can't help finding religious movies quite wonky and unwatchable (sp?). The "LOL, c'mon!" is too strong to tame.

I've found a treasure: an ISA bus graphics card! With 1 MB of video RAM, which is as much main memory as the motherboard in which I will install it.

What a pair of fucking greedy assholes.
They trademarked the "kids react", "teens react" and "youtubers react" phrases, but that wasn't enough and now they trademarked the word "react" - and have been taking down YouTube videos that use those phrases!
They took down entire channels because of them using the words "kids react" and such. 

EDIT: looks like the Fine Bros have recanted, and bigtime:

One of YouTube's biggest channels sparks fury over plans to trademark and license a video format used by many other video-makers.

It warms my socialist heart to see such support for a socialist presidential candidate in the US.
