Finally took the time to set up my old iMac for offline computing. Plan to use it as a jukebox and PIM manager so my phone stops sucking me in so much.

It is a Graphite iMac G3, with matching Que! Fire drive, and a Palm T2.

I upgraded the iMac with and SSD after maxing out the Ram. The Que! Drive is original to when I used this computer new. The slot loading drives on these early iMacs are rather unreliable and I got tired of replacing it.

There's a place in San Francisco called Envelop where you buy a ticket to sit in a mostly dark room with only a handful of people, listening to an album start to finish on a finely calibrated audio system. Cell phones aren't allowed and you're asked to not talk or disrupt.

It's such a unique way to enjoy full albums where you dedicated time to do nothing but that. Last night I went to listen to BT's "This Binary Universe". I think I'll prioritize going more often.

@bzdata hello! first time verse login :). Moved to Frisco from Oregon just 2 1/2-3 weeks before our first ever lock down, I sure did pick a time to change my life and move almost 1,000mi away from home with no family or friends 😅.

do you know of any cool private lookout spots? Preferably high up w/a gorgeous view. Maybe some locals only knowledge pretty plz ? :)

I’m new. Is each mastodon server disconnected from each other ?

I normally don’t go in for nostalgia, but when I saw my favorite device from childhood in a Goodwill for a cool ten bucks, I couldn’t resist. I made thousands of recordings on one of these bad boys and am over the moon to have another Sony TC-150

I just left my last commercial social media site. Quora started out great, but in the last few years devolved as they tried to find a way to make money. And so it goes.

I can only be found here and on Dreamwidth now.

The irony is I’ve come full circle. Back 20 years ago I was very active on Livejournal for long form writing (Dreamwidth is a fork of its Foss code base) and I had a Geocities site I posted “sitreps” to that was basically a proto-microblog like Mastodon.
