(Re)Making a ColecoVision

[Leaded Solder] found some ColecoVision game cartridges at a flea market, and like most of us would, thought, โ€œIโ€™ll build a ColecoVision console from scratch to play them!โ€ Well, maybe most of us would think of that, but not acโ€ฆ hackaday.com/2020/07/12/remaki

They don't make things like they used to.

I had baked my dinner entree in a "Pyrex" dish and was transferring it to my plate when, without warning the baking dish shattered into thousands of tiny shards all over my kitchen counter and my dinner. Behold the result (dinner plate and food removed).

I wish Pyrex was actually still borosilicate. Don't buy Pyrex. It's garbage now. Make sure you buy real borosilicate glass beware.

Here's one of my absolute favorite shots, "Momentary", where one had been sailing over the other, before being kicked out of the way mid-air, leaving them with a perfectly hapless expression.

#ProjectIdea: website to check the relative "weights" (in terms of MB to download) for websites and apps.

Can take 2 at a time, and display them with app icons/favicons on a weighing balance, with the heavier one tipped down โš–๏ธ

Inspiration: just realised the #Gmail webapp takes more MBs to load than #Thunderbird! :thunderbird: ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I'm trying to speak Python more fluently but it keeps sounding like I'm talking Fortran with a Lisp

This gives me the kind of vibes not felt since STOS and AMOS were released

Who comes out from the fiery furnace when you least expect it?

OK @dansup did some vlog posts on his new alt and they're very ... Coolman Coffeedan...sup

cultural appropriation take by a non-immigrant 

Center cultural appropriation debates on racialized people's experiences, not white people's wrongdoing.

Just look at those effin' bears too...staring, with those smirks on their faces. Mocking me.

They're in on the joke.

I half expect those damn bears to burst out laughing when I open the jar and it's empty.

At some point in time the peanut butter people switched their jars from natural translucent plastic to plastic that is dyed to a colour perfectly matching the peanut butter and I do not appreciate the games this plays with my mind

@atdt0 also, sorry fro the approval delay. Seems the emails from the mastodon server were getting blocked from being sent out.

Silly mastodon. Silly email.

Hey @atdt0 glad to come acrosd a sign-up without a bot-like comment and with an IP address that seems to be in my time zone!

Welcome to my little outpost in the fediverse!

George: jerry, there's a warbird out there

Jerry: put it on the screen

George: it is on the screen. you think I'm gonna tell you there's a warbird and not put it on the screen?

Jerry: it's blurred. it's a blurred warbird

George: there's another approaching. and another

jerry: a third blurred warbird?

...well I guess if you reject a pending new user request in Mastodon it actually deletes the record instead of marking it as rejected and retaining it. So there ain't no undo.

*sigh*

Well I guess if you requested to have an account on my instance and got rejected then try again, and for good measure fill out the comment with a friendly note that stands out and looks different from the bots ๐Ÿ˜‚
