Re: your latest purchase

Man, I need to fix my Sega CD (I think a fuse blew in it.) Lots of strange, interesting stuff for that system, especially for fans of early-'90s anime aesthetics (and early-'90s anime dubbing!) Keio Flying Squadron alone is worth the price of admission.

Re: your latest purchase

Interesting! I only found out about them when I got that 5-string Jazz Bass clone off of Craigslist, but I've been genuinely amazed by how nice an instrument it is considering they sell for $150-250 depending on the model. I went down to a pawn shop this afternoon just to satisfy my curiousity by tr...

Re: your latest purchase

I just plunked down for an SX Andromeda II from Rondo Music. It's basically the 4-string deluxe version (single-piece neck, high-mass bridge, better tuners) of their Jazz Bass clone I already own. I've found that to be a majorly sweet instrument, but after some serious consideration I find that the ...

Yeah, but archive.org's crawlers respect robots.txt, so the packages never got archived.

Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

It's one thing to drop support as far as updates go, but actually removing access to older builds for older systems is just obscene, especially since it's blocked from being mirrored on archive.org.

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

Yeah, you can get anything that isn't the Ultra 45 (which scalpers have latched onto for being The Fastest SPARC Workstation) for a pretty reasonable price. I really ought to do more with my Blade 2000, but it seems like most of the open-source Solaris ports are business/server-oriented stuff.

Re: The unfortunate reality of being at the mercy of clouds

Precisely. All is well and good until the connection goes down, or the infrastructure has technical difficulties, and then you're completely SOL. And then everybody acts totally shocked and surprised like nobody could possibly have seen this coming.

I came here, read a hamei post, then went and watched the newest Twin Peaks episode and got pretty much the same thing courtesy of Russ Tamblyn. Serendipity!

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

I'm running Devuan (Debian with the systemd dependencies removed.) It's pretty solid and updates come through pretty regularly.

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

I've switched to Linux only before but haven't stuck with it. I kind of should... :P The only reason I haven't is that it just seems inefficient and annoying to have Linux as the host and have to boot up a Windows VM just to play games. Win10 was what finally got me to make the switch. It became ab...

Win10 is sooo broken. The Settings application in particular is absolutely maddening to deal with.

Re: your latest purchase

hofner.jpg Newest member of the family: a Hofner violin bass. (Not sure exactly which model, but it's one of the fully hollow-body ones, not the one with a sustain block inside.) Picked it up because I've been wanting to try one and a guy on Craigslist was offering a good deal since he's in a Beatl...
