I think I saw that quote somewhere on the IRC quote DB once... Can't find it back tho.

Still, I'd forgotten about that site, but if you want weirdness: http://bash.org/?latest

Yeah, that screencap is a greybeard by now.

Now, Intersil IM6100. Blown minds yet? No? It's a PDP-8/E CPU on a CMOS chip.

Heh! Got this really yummy book about the 1964—1974 Horsepower Wars and the Detroit steel involved.

Ahhh, FORTRAN! Some of the best times I've had involved it. John Broadhurst had managed to get the lab CDC 3100 compiler running so we could mix FORTRAN and assembly language. Oh, was that a sweetheart to use.

Visual approach to BIIS in a Dash-8.

[shivers] Such badass pilots.

That woman sounds to me like a sociopath.

Worse.
Note that her husband is sort of a cop boss.
He says "jump" and cops ask "how high". The results of any investigation is what they write down and we all know cops will write down what they are told to. These parents are lucky they didn't write it was their kid who was cycling at 100 kph backwards while drunk.
Reminds me of that accident in Moscow where a woman killed a 5-year old kid while going ~80 kph through a pedestrian zone (speed limit 15 kph) and the investigation had concluded it was the kid's fault and the official expertise said the child was drunk and it couldn't be overruled because it was official police record. Took a global public and media outrage to finally push things along. Surprise, turns out the woman was a courier of narcotics dealers, no wonder their pet cops put up such a furious fight.
Such is life. Whoever is powerful enough to order cops around owns the so-called "law".

REALLY not good

That's why I don't own one yet (that, and my SIM card is too big and cannot be divided further)

FORTRAN

Eh, full speed was always costly in brain stress.
Just look at the shaders of today. Not for the faint of the heart -- and I'm only dabbling in quite outdated GLSL. Vulkan is much scarier.

Yes, this is one of those airports pilots need special training for. They can not make the turn any later because of a mountain ridge.
