We're Back, Probably

Customer service bot with an itchy trigger finger took us down over an abuse ticket that I had already resolved.

I got us up and running using a proxy server and an SSH tunnel, but then managed to reach a human and got things restored.

Well, that was fun.  If you can't see this post, let me know.

Disclaimer: Do NOT try and mod a TV that only has an RF antenna input, it is likely this is a "live chassis" TV and the internal circuitry is not isolated and is at main potential. This could kill you, or worse, blow up your vintage computer.

Video of the Day

Earlier this year there was a video from David Murray, The 8-bit Guy, discussing his dream retrocomputer.  


Now he and a busy little team of hardware and software hackers are making it.



While the specs are still subject to revision, it looks like it will be an 8 MHz 6502 with 128K of ROM and 2MB of RAM - about 40K direct mapped and the rest bank switched - and an FPGA for video.  They have both an emulator and working prototype hardware.

The 6502 is not a good CPU, but it's a very familiar CPU to a lot of programmers, and that has huge benefits.


Disclaimer: Remember that stuff about crazy people and bad code?  The internet is that except it’s literally a billion times worse.  Websites that are glorified shopping carts with maybe three dynamic pages are maintained by teams of people around the clock, because the truth is everything is breaking all the time, everywhere, for everyone.  Right now someone who works for Facebook is getting tens of thousands of error messages and frantically trying to find the problem before the whole charade collapses.  There’s a team at a Google office that hasn’t slept in three days.  Somewhere there’s a database programmer surrounded by empty Mountain Dew bottles whose husband thinks she’s dead.  And if these people stop, the world burns.
