on the one hand, we have Altair 8800 kits available again. These things are older than I am.

and the other geektoy(s) I want. hackable mp3 players. Or buildable. I remember many many aeons ago, some UCC members getting their brains together to design and build a portable (ish) mp3 player. Back before there were mp3 decoder chips like there are now.
Back when 512MB hard drives were large.
an iPod, while completely functional and geeky enough, is better when running RockBox but nothing beats building your own widget. and it's expandable, where iPods are not.
I'm tempted by the CF version, as that way I could whack in a microdrive - they're rather cheap on eBay.

I mucked around with my website a bit tonight.
mucked around as in, got gallery2 embedded into drupal, got TinyMCE working and got the g2Image plugin to tie Gallery2 and TinyMCE together.
phew. and tinymce is being compressed before going to the browser.
so ... 2.5 hours later ... I'm wondering where my sleep time went.
oh well.

after much pulling of hair and of beating my ageing graphite airport base station, I now have wireless at home.
damn WEP keys and text->HEX conversion. It's silly and something I am glad has been aged out with WPA.


Others, I'm somewhere where I'm not meant to be.
At home.
