I have "fond" memories of Xenix, limited entirely to showing off an IFS=/ vi-recover /bin/mail root exploit to a radio shack dude in 1985ish, having only used 4.2BSD at that point...

First memory of a flight: BDL->MCO (ended up as a bus from BDL->ISP with the flight crew...) Last flight: BOS->ORD Shortest flight: BWI->BWI (BWI->HPN with a sudden turn around on initial climb) Longest flight: BDL->MCO above took 13 hours Favorite airport: BED Least: BOS

I... think I have one of those at the office. Hooks to a brand new PCI digital I/O board (and yeah, "why does the new machine have a SCSI port" was my first thought too...)

(and by "simple" I mean I'd actually been thinking about seeing if gesture tracking was fast enough to get a laptop with webcam to yell at you, which is... existing software mostly, but not *simple*.)

Oh, I haven't read that in a while, I needed that. (I also got a kick out of "At this point I ran out of magnets" in the guardian article. It's a decently *simple* approach to the problem, too, except we blew past "don't touch your face" to "no really, filters")

If this all sounds like completely insane lies, well, probably, but check out the delusional thread below. With the help of some friends, I collected some baking cultures from the time of the construction of the pyramids!

I saw a youtube chef squeeze out a couple of sausages as convenient "meat that's already seasoned and saves a few steps on this recipe" pods, which I'd never considered before...

Friends, I learned last night over Zoom drinks that ya'll're baking so much that there's a shortage of yeast?! I, your local frumpy yeast geneticist have come here to tell you this: THERE IS NEVER A SHORTAGE OF YEAST. Here's where I'm a viking. Instructions below.

and the need for bunny suits in automotive painting is one of the reasons robots have succeeded there (though I've seen at least one rig where the robots had tyvek sleeves too, "if the robots need PPE maybe take an *extra* step back" :-)

I first ran across this with Jeph Jacques guitar building quasi-disaster with... mahogany, I think? Had sufficient respirator, but still ended up with nasty "burns" effectively on face and arms...

after all, there's a lot of painting and woodworking that are really toxic.

I'd imagine many people have 1ish simply because that discovered they could prime them, after setting one on YouTube
