RT @retrorewindca
Still got that stupid battery in your machine? Maybe you have already taken it out and want the RTC back up and running in your ? We got you covered. Get yours over at retrorewind.ca.

P.S. This batch is just for my private collection (I WISH!).

Ran across my old BASIC stamp stuff when I was looking for something else. The cables, books, and floppy. But sadly not the actual STAMP IC 🙄 I had lots of fun messing with these back in the day. I see Parallax actually still sells them. Kinda pricey compared to modern stuff. Tempting 🤔

Institutions are bad at caring for people.

This is about as well established as anything can be.

And yet, human cultures keep on creating institutions & expecting them to care for people.

Found out about FreeBee, an emulator for the AT&T PC7300 3B1 UNIX computer, via the UNIX bulletin board on @SDF. All the instructions to download all the necessary bits and the source itself were included, so here it is running on my Raspberry Pi 4!

If you have a TTY/TTD device and want to give it a try, I have one set on auto-answer mode at 484.996.1337. Feel free to leave a message!

Here is a photo of me connecting to it via a baudot-compatible modem.

My stack of blank M-Disc DVD's is getting thin 😕 and they don't make them anymore. The Cloud conquers all it seems.

I tried Netbsd on the pi back in the 7.x days and it wasn’t really working. But they have come a long way now and 9.2 works great so far. Way better fit on the $5 Pi Zero then the heavy official Linux distro.


Helped a family member set up a OOma Telo voip device and noticed it talked about "DATA and FAX" mode. You can select ulaw and alaw codac's with prefix *98 or *99

Hmm.. Yep! it works for dialup modem. Was able to dial in to SDF at 1200baud and it was rock stable!
