  1. One of my favorite CE maps. It's just so gorgeous! Nice write-up!
  2. Do you know about IPFS? Distributed, censorship-resistant file hosting. It's like a big torrent swarm, sharing a big Git repository optimized for hosting large files. Apparently you can even use IPFS as storage for an actual git repo, although that's not a very well-polished usecase yet. Most people use IPFS for large files like video and wikipedia backups.
  3. Strong showings all around. Great work everyone!
  4. Going to pick up this CRT projector this weekend: Capable of 240p, 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i, even comes with a remote! They're definitely fiddly beasts, but the price was right and I love to tinker anyway.
  5. Hey, you're into restoring and maintaining old motherboards, right? Anything in particular that someone interested in the field should know? :) I've heard capacitors can be a pain to deal with

      I like restoring old Apple hardware. The most common causes of death are electrolytic capacitors, clock batteries, and the environment.

      At least in the old Macs, we have what is called an "M-Bomb" AKA a red Maxell brand battery. They don't just leak, but explode with fire. It's always important to remove those.

      The niche I'm interested in is CRTs. It looks like capacitors are among the first components to go. No batteries to worry about, though.

       

      I love how the image path in these things is totally analog, and they were designed to be replaceable. In theory you could puzzle out a circuit just by looking at it. I'm so used to CPUs and software lol.

       

  6. Great work! This would make for an interesting player character.
  7. Great header. =D

  9. For VPS, in addition to DigitalOcean I'd also take a look look at Ramnode and Vultr.
