Electronic computing without valves or transistors: the parametron is a solid state magnetic technology invented in 1954 by Dr. Eiichi Goto. The PC-1 computer (first PC?!) was built in 1958. By 1963, the technology was used by OI-Electric for their Aleph-Zero 101 desk calculator:

Busicom also wanted to make an electronic calculator, and the 1961 Anita Mk8 non-electronic calculator caught their eye. They tried to buy one, but were suspected of intending to copy, and were offered a thousand instead. This machine has a few vacuum tubes, but the compute engine uses a cold cathode tube for logic, and a dekatron for counting. It's the first electronic desktop calculator, according to
http://www.anita-calculators.info/html/mk_8.html

(The MUSASINO-1 also used parametrons, over five thousand of them, but had valves too. See

I have to say, having used various #JavaScript tools in the past, from plain ol' JS, thru #Prototype.js then #jQuery then #AngularJS that I'm finding #React by far the most fun to tinker around with, especially since I can so readily punt to jQuery for $.ajax() or $('body').click() or whatever.

I am finding it hard to make it live up to its reputation for blazing speed, but I'm getting there. Mixing in react-bootstrap and react-dnd is helping me have fun too. One day I'll have to build something serious with it...

Daggum it. Leesti has had an election or something, and the local government of GL has changed, meaning I no longer have "Greetings, respected ally" status.

I guess I have two choices:

1. Run counter-revolutionary missions and hope I don't get splatted.

2. Keep on truckin'

Option 2 is how I got allied in the first place, selling high-demand goods in bulk (I never ran a single mission), so I think I'm going to go with what I know.

Leesti United Steelworks, as I recall. I'm docked at Cavalieri in HIP 65636 at the moment, so I can't be sure.

First they came for my hash, and I said nothing, because I had no hash.

I bet US businesses are wishing they'd started IPv6 deployment earlier. IPv4 addresses are probably going to be subject to some kind of price war real soon now. I recommend +ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers)​ institute a "buy-back" program, or something like it. I know there must be /24s (at least) that could be re-engineered to /30s (or even /32s) plus NAT, if there were a financial incentive. I do hate to suggest government interference in a private market, but maybe it's exactly the sort of thing the FCC could help orchestrate. I feel scummy just thinking that, but there it is.

The Internet as we know it has officially gotten too big for its britches after the group that assigns addresses in North America ran out of numbers.

When I was running their "business class", they were handing out ipv6 here. But they would only do it dynamically. You couldn't get a permanent range for your network. That was a couple years ago

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
