I don't know how you got here, either.

I pretend to make IT work for other people during the day, I pretend to make IT work for myself at night.

Sometimes I pretend to know what I'm doing.

I have somehow reached the point where I have ordered something specifically for one YouTube video. This is a troubling trend

@mwl Wikipedia confirms my suspicion that Elmer is the bull on the glue logo. But it also claims that Elmer is the mate of Elsie the Cow, who is the mascot for Borden Dairy

I think I need to sit down for a minute

Missed my Games for Maui stream from a few days ago? It’s back, in VOD form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eArhArj92ZE

Since then we're up to $735 for Maui! If you'd like to donate, just head over to my Twitch page ( https://www.twitch.tv/mrnuclearmonster ) and click the donate to charity button or just boost this post with your mastobux for 0 real dollars!

@Edmonds_Scanner honestly, that would be a step up from my current neighbors

I had nothing better to do last night, so I recorded myself playing Popeye for #NES, and then I posted it to YouTube


I think my copy of The Goonies II for #NES might need to be cleaned

King's Knight for #nes is a lousy game, but it has one of the most refreshingly-direct game over screens I've ever seen

According to Sources™, $250 in 1934 money is worth about $5703.19 in 2023 money

Found a #crossword puzzle #book from 1934. I'm so going to win that $250
The Prize Cross Word Puzzle Book first series, 1934 Solve this crossword puzzle to potentially win $250 in 1934. The puzzle itself shows a picture of a library The $250.00 Cross Word Puzzle Book Series 1 cover

@LucyWinter I actually tracked down a copy of Slalom for the NES so I'd have an excuse to say the word more often

I wasn't sure if I could make a #playthrough of Spot: The Videogame for #nes seem interesting. You can see my attempt here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HTCCcwQ-4E

I'm definitely not spending my evening cheating at old 'athletic competition' #nes games by using a turbo controller

If you ever wanted to watch me attempt to play a #nes game intended for small children, then I have some good news


I have added two more items to my IDG Publishing 3-D visual #computer #books collection

@lilithsaintcrow Knowing would spoil the magic

Oh the things that can be found at the used #book store
The Complete Book of Knife Fighting by William L Cassidy

@lilithsaintcrow @sjgochenour Like anything it depends on... a lot (usually the higher up, the better), but if you have an old set of rabbit ears hanging around, it's worth a shot. If you get really ambitious a site like https://www.antennaweb.org/ can help you figure out which direction to aim your receiver

@lilithsaintcrow @sjgochenour Shooting television programs through the air is still a thing, I make my living doing it. With the digital explosion a few years ago, there's a lot of stuff out there now (like everything, most of it is trash, but it's still out there). You just need an antenna.

One of our local PBS stations still shows Red Green a couple days a week
