Low-Tech Magazine and No Tech Magazine are such treasures of the web. I can just loose a couple hours surfing all the super interesting articles on these sites.
@ashley It still turns on, but I'd have to un-mod the screen window to see the display (which only takes a few minutes). I've been meaning to look into whether it is POCSAG because that would be pretty easy to run my own small pager site off a Raspberry Pi. I did a write-up here if you want to know more about what I did for the cosmetic modification, https://famicoman.com/2018/11/06/building-a-replica-hackers-pager/
@ashley Cool! Did you get yours from hackerscurator? I ended up making my own a few years back and it was a lot of fun.
@ashley I also definitely used the wrong email on ko-fi so it will be a complete surprise when it shows up in the mail, haha.
OK OK OK my book The Illustrated Guide to Video Formats and associated website with illustrations+data are both out now!!! https://archivesoftomorrow.com/
Hey #papernotebooks users, I'm considering getting some Field Notes Expedition notebooks but heard they are finicky with what pens will work effectively on them. I've mainly used micron 02 (I think) on my non-waterproof Field Notes and like fine tip but don't know how they'd work on an Expedition. I've heard Sharpies are a good alternative?
Some new #fermention after a long hiatus. We have spicy garlic cucumber pickles, spicy garlic honey, and garlic ginger beet kvass with and without dill.
We’re pleased to announce #MeshJam2022, a two-day celebration of mesh networking at Iffy Books. We'll have mesh talks and workshops all day on Saturday, August 13 and Saturday, August 20. Hope to see you there!
I haven't seen the #automat documentary yet, but for years now I always take the opportunity to pass by the original Horn & Hardart Automat location at 8th and Chestnut in Philadelphia. It's just a cool-looking building.
