Computer Club's third HTML lesson went well! This time was mostly just practice from all the stuff we learned before. You can check out members' exercises as well as summaries of our lessons over at mpcclub.info/downloads/html_le

The screenshot is of the page I did for this lesson :>

Just made an HTML4/5 version of a page with CSS and then made a version without CSS that's HTML3.2 compliant as an example for Computer Club, and not gonna lie, kinda mad that the version without CSS makes more sense than the one that does....

End of an era :') I've been either the Vice President or the President of SAEC since 2017 and a member since Fall 2016. Time's really flown by, and I hope despite the pandemic and the struggles the club and its members have had, the club can continue in the future and I can continue to put my heart into it or support it in some way.

TO AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE! HUZZAH!

After finding out that apparently if you buy a fridge from Lowes they don't remove the old one for you, I decided to finally take a shot at seeing if I could just try and fix my fridge. It's a GE Profile fridge, approximately 27 years old based on the date tagged on the defrost assembly (1994) -- older than me!

Apparently the heaters have gone bad, so it's not auto-defrosting. Found a pair on Amazon for $20, so now I just have to wait a week and pop the new ones in and see if it works!

@jebug29 Great Machine with GREAT software!πŸ˜† I saw you msg on the term!

Weather's bad today! Bad enough that state testing got postponed and we were told it's a work from home day (the first time that's happened for me since I started working in September)

I need to get another little UPS for my Altair. I'm shutting it off for now in case the power blinks. Please be kind to us, rain

I also remember my dad setting an alarm on his old cell phone. Maybe super deep sleeper is a genetic thing

"How did people wake up before they could set 20 alarms on their phone," I ask myself, suddenly remembering my dad's clock radio with that big long snooze button that would do nothing but delay yet another hellish screech of FM-band static by just enough time for me to fall asleep just enough to forget what the snooze button was, preparing me to hit it yet again.

Both have phlogs! Can't wait to continue them, add weather, and news via converted RSS feeds!

I'm still a couple months away from turning 23, but for some reason in my mind every time I try to remember my age I just default to 23, like somehow 22 is just an invisible number

I bought a VGA to HDMI converter in hopes that I could run it through my HDMI capture card and view and record the video out of things like my Powerbook and my old Gateway running Win98, but it turns out my capture card doesn't support 1024x768 ; v ;

Neither does my TV (over HDMI), so heck

Potentially Controversial Opinion 

And I do totally understand that blockchain is power hungry, but AGAIN, emissions wouldn't be a problem if REAL socioeconomic investment was made into renewable energy.

Also, EVERYTHING we do and use is dirty. Silicon, lithium, aluminum, etc manufacturing is horribly dirty and a lot of it flat out unethical. That's not going to make 99% of people protest against their phones, but rightly the awful systems in place that surround global production.

Potentially Controversial Opinion 

Like, okay, NFT. I understand why people don't like NFT and get that people see it as copyright abuse/abolition/obfuscation for small artists. STILL, using Twitter of all things to make your whole argument about "emissions" just comes off as... stupid. You're literally only mad at this thing because being mad at it is the popular thing. You don't have real reasons to dislike NFT, yet you're ready and willing to demonize people who use it.
