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 😅.

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.

Hi everyone, grateful to make an appearance in no agenda social!

Just went to Home Depot, opened the Best Buy app on my phone and searched for weatherstrips…
