@yrabbit I never realized how much I depended on hearing the drive heads click as a way of knowing what the machine was doing, until I switched to SSDs and that indicator went away.

Really wish they would put those flickering "HDD" drive-access LEDs back on computers. They were handy. Network ones would be too.

Bring back !

I enjoy the sound of a hard drive running. Don't get me wrong: getting pleasure from the hum of the main spindle is of course a marasmus, but the sound of the heads is another matter.
It's akin to the aesthetics of a watch with open guts:)

Support for my card is commented out:( It must be too old Radeon chip=0x66581002

yay! amdgpu on ! I really want to try it, but for now I'm afraid: I see that the broken i2c is still in use, which means I'll have to fix it in place:)

The board from arrived, this thing is huge! 😜 Unfortunately, the factory didn't even flash the blinky into it:(

Does your dog always walk in front of you in narrow spaces? I give you the ultimate dog costume.

Letters and numbers. These two pieces look suspicious:)

Backup Day. I don't dare to play with since the usb subsystem is very sensitive so I will wait until the copying is finished. But nobody forbid me to shoot down some flying saucers in classic UFO2 :)

Hey, I used to take pictures.

Like, uh, Vampire Bagels from Mars (for Halloween, of course). Taken in Park Slope, Brooklyn.


(note to self: I really need to reopen my SDF Pixelfed account)

OMG, I never expected that the sound of the head moving from track to track would bring back such vivid memories of my college years a hundred years ago!
Even beautiful boxes of floppy disks (10 + 1!) come to mind :)

Even Beria is said to have loved some animals, not to mention Hitler...

The Council of the District Commissioners is considering a draft resolution "On the regularization of the situation created by the presence of large concentrations of dog-headed monkeys in the city limits..." It is proposed that all monkeys be registered, provided with metal collars and plaques with their own names, and then assigned to institutions and private individuals, who will henceforth be responsible for them!"

But that, unfortunately, is also impossible. There are too many of them, and our government is still so disgustingly democratic. And here comes a brilliant idea, brilliant in its simplicity: to regulate the presence of baboons! To legitimize the chaos, the outrage, and thus make it an element of the order inherent in the government of our good mayor! Instead of beggarly and bullying herds and gangs, nice pets. We all love animals! Queen Victoria loved animals. Darwin loved animals.

Baboons are begging in the streets - a blatant disorder: we don't have and can't have beggars! Baboons shit, they don't clean up after themselves, and no one is going to clean up after them. What conclusions can we draw from this?

That's right! The first business conclusion to be drawn is to conceal the existence of the baboons. To pretend that they don't exist at all.

"Monkeys were already in town. They were scurrying along the eaves, hanging from lampposts in clusters, dancing in creepy, shaggy crowds at intersections, clinging to windows, hurling boulders uprooted from the sidewalk, chasing mad people who had jumped out into the street in their underwear.

Now imagine that countless herds of baboons appear in the city you are in charge of. You don't have the guts to expel them. You can't feed them centrally either - you don't have enough food or reserves.

In the morning I sent another three hundred IP morons who picked up passwords to my mail server to the eternal ban. The usual.

First run of all parts of the free toolchain for with ALU support. There were changes in (formal:) ), , .
My favorite example (shift) works on hw, I don't attach video, you've seen it a hundred times already.
But it's not worth releasing it into the wild while I see its weaknesses:)
