  • Guru Meditation

    I spent several hours today in silent meditation, although I haven’t been able to clear my mind for even the span of a single breath. On the plus side, I discovered that I’m able to sit cross-legged with a straight posture for extended periods of time. The original Amiga OS had a unique crash screen […]

  • Can You Write 8-bit Code?

    Have you ever tried to write software for a 6502 or other 8-bit processor? I tried so many times, since I was a child, to write anything of significance, and it is just so tedious. Nowadays, I’m curious the sort of psychology of someone who wants to go all the way back to the 8-bit […]

I mean, that’s my theory because I don’t care to run 68k MacOS, but it would be a testament to Apple’s poor software quality control […]

There was a lot of brand loyalty, mostly because different brands weren’t compatible with each others’ software (until IBM PC […]
