please let's put that cursed thing where it belongs

in the trash

@deFrisselle Good idea, I usually get an Ikea shelf and some Capita legs and make my own.

What is difficult to find now is the stand for dot matrix printers so you can stow their paper below.

I'm so glad I managed to find an original IBM printer stand for sale.

You've worked with a stubborn engineer.

But have you ever worked with an engineer so stubborn, that to get them to use the new OS they're supposed to be working on, you create a custom build of the OS, with the old UI, break into their office, and replace ROMs in their computer?

@brad I'm not much of an enthusiast but I'm a happy ebike user. It makes commuting so easy.

@quarky Yeah, its to reduce the depth of the board to just under EATX.

Just finished chucking a core 2 era dual Xeon system together. Thanks HP for not using a standard 24 pin power connector, I've had to bodge a dongle together to feed some additional 12v power in there.

Web design rant 

Medicare websites for scheduling appointments shouldn't be hip and fresh with latest design trends. They should have a simple, big, stable and *unchanging* interface that someone who still kind of remembers World War 2 can use without too much of a fuss.

Just, ya know. A thought.

Then and now 

The web in 1995:

> Click on something
> Wait a few seconds while images download
> Readable content

The modern web, especially silo systems:

> Click on something
> Wait multiple seconds while a bunch of ads are blocked and megabytes of javascript downloads
> Something breaks of can't be displayed
> A dialog obscures quarter the screen, asking you to click "yes"
> Inexplicable semi-transparent gray overlay with close button top right
> You are presented with a captcha puzzle

@saga I think a lot of people still play with the classic Java edition because its so readily modifiable.

I don't know if the UWP version can connect to those servers.

Nokia N9 is probably the sweetest smartphone ever made, don’t @ me
