Re: your latest purchase

I'd just like to know why in God's name anybody puts the Caps Lock key on these little tiny micro-keyboards. NOBODY USES CAPS LOCK. ALL IT DOES IS GET IN THE WAY. And that goes double when it's on an already-cramped keyboard, the same size as and immediately adjacent to one of the most common letter...

Re: your latest purchase

Oh, nifty. Reminds me, I should really pull out my RPi and screw around with RISC OS some more.

Re: your latest purchase

Only problem with abandoning *nix is that the alternatives have been getting worse and worse. Windows 8 was so awful that it finally drove me off my XP system simply by demonstrating that things would never, ever get better there; if I had to use Win10 as a daily driver I'd slit my wrists. And OSX i...

Re: your latest purchase

Why bother with laptops, as you pay so much and get so little from a hardware pint of view? Because I can't crash on the couch or lie in bed on a lazy morning with a desktop PC. And yeah, one could use a cheap, low-power laptop as a terminal connected to a more powerful computer... but that doesn't...

Re: your latest purchase

This I don't understand. Why get so angry at Lenovo, and instead just buy an (Apple/Microsoft/Huawei)? If that's your sword to fall on there are plenty of options in the screen department. I mean, I'm not married to the idea of buying ThinkPads. It's just that everywhere I look, the laptop market t...

Re: your latest purchase

Do note that it has now been confirmed that the ThinkPad 25 will contain the same 16:9 1920x1080 touchscreen seen in the T470. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-25-New-specs-and-pictures-of-the-Retro-ThinkPad-have-been-leaked.250898.0.html Bummer. Still, just having a non-garbage keyboa...

Re: your latest purchase

Besides that I am currently seeking out old tube TVs in good shape. Its harder than it sounds as the Trinitron tubes are hoarded. It seems to be a regional thing; when I lived in Duluth I was practically tripping over free CRT TVs, but out in California people actually still expect money for the th...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I mean, say what you want about hamei, but that dude was intelligent and knew his shit about vintage Unix stuff. ivelegacy was very similar in terms of quirky, belligerent, bizarre behavior, but minus any semblance of coherence, relevance, or self-control.
