I’m in the middle of a few projects right now, here are some interesting bits of things I’ve played with and stuff I’ve done in the past weeks. If I don’t post it now it’ll just sit and get all moldy.
Some rocks off of Yaquina Head.
My Cousin Jennifer and Cousin Saro visited from Boston.
Felice and Jennifer being all contemplative.
Yaquina Head lighthouse.
Max was lost in thought.
Sandstorm at Agate Beach.
I scored this Apple IIe computer at a yard sale for $5.00. This is bad as it’s the sort of thing I can get obsessed with. I have a reputation for hating Apple Products, but this retina display is awesome.
Well how the heck am I going to do that? Much learning ensued. I’ll have a separate post or two about it, but let me say that ADTPro is very cool.
This is the latest bit of research…
This was free at a yard sale. Felice said she doesn’t mind me opening the Philomath Vintage computer museum. It’s a word processor but I think it counts as a computer.
Ron wasn’t that bad looking. This was the only file on the floppy disk.
Oh…I discovered that the Internet Archive has a vast software archive. I always wanted to play Ogre on a computer running DOS. If you run it in Dosbox, use D-Fend. I have.
It’s there for the Apple IIe as well.
We missed the Steam-Up last year, but went this year. Gregg made us tee shirts from our logo (nonsequitur).
This is your hair on a giant squirrel cage fan.
Riding the rails.
Some really cool home made treadle woodworking tools.
And an antique one.
I told you I collect VOMs. Picked this up at the Steam-up swap meet for $1.00.
Ok, what is this thing? Found it at the OSU surplus sale. It’s a great argument starter, toss it into a room of engineers and they’ll rip each other apart.
A box for $3.00 at a yard sale.
More components…I’m getting lucky or nobody wants this stuff. The crimp pins are going to be handy and are surprisingly expensive.
Speaking of things I don’t know about, what are these?
