just showing off my desk with moody lighting so everyone knows how bright these leds are on this neotrellis

I cleaned so much blue death chalk from this computer

I posted about this power adapter for this Thinkpad 300 before, and Free Geek Twin Cities actually had a compatible Zenith Z-Note charger I borrowed. So that’s what the connector looks like

Ok these are out of order, but I have a working IBM Thinkpad 300. The floppy is nonfunctional and the hard drive was toast, so I dd’d a disk image with msdos 5.22 and win3.1 onto a 40gb hard drive, which this impressively recognizes like it was made for it (I made the partition smaller)

found my Orinoco 802.11b card from upwards of two decades ago today after finding the driver cd yesterday

which is good because apparently they’re not easily online anymore, and it included win95 and dos drivers even. Time to tell my modern access point to use Pain Speed on one of its radios

Just ordered an eeprom programmer finally so I can do a dump of this thing’s brain

I have...a US minitel terminal now. USWest apparently for a time in test markets offered minitel services that were even connected to the French minitel network? I’m taking this thing apart because there’s the smell of something breaking down and I want to make sure it isn’t mouse piss or a blown cap

dog the bounty hunter is fabio's final form

we have a cricut maker so maybe something could be made out of paperboard instead. I cut up an iphone box but this is not tenable

the arduino mega’s length is exactly too long for the build area of my 3d printer, no enclosure printing for me

pleased to report that the Gas Station Chain Pizza from Iowa that just opened up near my house is every bit as good as I remember

bring back the ford tempo exactly how it was

Ordered a proto shield pcb for this arduino mega. Turns out jumper cables and a poorly soldered din cable aren’t so reliable and I have to goof around with them a bit every time I try to load a prg from this as card on the c64. Also ordered a user port breakout, so I can put one of these esp8266s to use for something and get this machine semi-online

There's an sd2iec build for the arduino mega, and hey, it's relatively easy to get flashed and set up. next steps: build a better serial cable, get a nice housing, and put it all inside.

After trying and failing to get a firmware working on my sd2iec, am hour after digging out my arduino and sending a sketch to it I had Tron (with a lovely cracktro) running on it. Sucks to need a computer to send the files so maybe I can hack something together with an sd card reader and this sketch. (uno2iec)
