Had a weird dream the other night that the Living Computer Museum in Seattle was doing a live stream walkthrough of their exhibits, ending with a demo of a rare prototype HP Wendy-123 that ran Windows 3.1 and AmigaOS 3.1 but it was all a viral marketing thing for a new Batman movie 🤦‍♂️

My son is asking for "the videos with the music and the fast letters" and I'm pretty sure that's the best description of demos I've ever heard.

Two screws sheared off my cheap treadmill's kickstand. Took some work to get the remnants out. But they were easily replaced with better quality screws. I'm considering the simple construction a feature I guess.

I'm probably going to see Rise of Skywalker sometime soon. Not out of interest but because I've seen all the mainline Star Wars movies (all the theatrical releases except Solo) in the theater ever since my parents took my weeks-old diapered ass to the drive in to see A New Hope.

Finally got to the hotel after midnight. World of Commodore starts in twenty minutes.

There's not enough coffee in the world to get me through the day.

Facebook surfaced a post of mine from 2014 when I got up early to watch the Orion capsule test flight. I was so excited about the future of Orion & SLS even though I knew they were less than ideal, politically driven designs like the Shuttle.

Here we are, five years later and…nothing. That's so depressing.

I really want to bring my Ultimate SX-64 to World of Commodore but I don't want to try to get that mess of wires through airport security ☹️
