As some of my fellow #Atari owners may know, the keyboard membranes on XL-series computers deteriorate over time and malfunction. For a decade, I have been patching and mending my keyboard membrane with foil tape and conductive paint and all sorts of other crap, and it works... for a while. Until another key stops working 6 months later. :(

The idea of a $1000 Stratocaster is so outrageous to me. The fuckin' things were designed *for* mass production. Guitar people drive me crazy.

I must say that if you go to the web site of @rek + @neauoire then order some of their stickers, you are going to receive what I can only call a work of art on what appears to be a homemade envelope made from reused paper with wonderful handwriting and a hand drawn image of their vessel, Pino. My stickers were wrapped with a page from an old water heater manual, sealed with a red sticker and another little heart warming note. I almost felt like I shouldn't open it. Order one and be blessed too.

Now I just have to figure out how to get this window manager to deal with Unicode in the title-bar.
