This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.

Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.

Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.

Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

Remembering Alan……

A thing that makes me happy every time I remember it: a "disintegrated" circuit of the MOS 6502 processor.

The 6502 was used in Apple II, NES, Commodore 64, tons of Atari products, BBC Micro and more. It's 80's home computing in a 40 pin chip.

This version faithfully recreated the CPU in discreet components. It's more than a foot square. It is glorious!

A project by Eric Schlaepfer, in collaboration with Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.

@The_Resistance If she serves the full 20 years, it might be a death sentence, as she's 60 now.

@scm It's a neat little keyboard along with the PinePhone. I highly recommend that you select priority shipping so you don't experience delay problems like I did.
