My partner and I were camping about 75 miles from home and happened into an antique shop and I found this cool butt-set for a reasonable price, picked it up to add to my collection of about 4 or 5 other butt-sets.
My friend Ryan and I traveled from Minneapolis MN to Appleton WI (289mi/465km) and spent the weekend with our friend Garrett digging through his warehouse and geeking out over cool vintage tech. The major items I picked up are a first gen intel Mac Mini 1,1 and an IBM 5150 with Model F keyboard and […]
Switched DNS for my sites to Cloudflare, since my sites are all just small hobby sites I can use their free plan. I can leverage their CDN and DDoS protection, plus free SSL. Should hopefully make the site more responsive and protect my network and web-server too.
Spent my birthday weekend visiting my friend Garrett’s new BitHistory.org warehouse.

Also picked up some vintage gear while I was there, a cool painted Zenith Z-180 series laptop, and […]

Luckily my Router, CCTV surveillance server, and domain controller were all sitting on […]
My friend Ryan and I drove the ~4.5 hours from Minneapolis, MN to Appleton, WI to visit our friend Garrett to geek out and dig through his Bithistory.org warehouse. We had a great time hanging out as usual, and hauled home some goodies.
Our apologies, the UPS running our: modem, router, switch, and the raspberry pi running this server died yesterday morning (ungrateful thing, I just changed out it’s batteries and special 24volt fan too). We’re running on utility power for now, the UPS will have to be replaced soon.
