- Commodore 64 and Spectrum keyboards – USB versions. Not interesting to me, but I bet at least one person reading this just got excited.
- The Horrible World of Web Hosting. Unfortunately quite an accurate article, especially in his quote translations. (via)
- Getting an Apple 1 to run. Note that the circuit board is mounted in a wall frame.
- Interactive Fiction Competition 2013 recommendations. This can eat up a few hours if you have them to spare. (via)
- Where shutdowns are not disasters. An exploration of the shutdown command.
- Mail backups using newsyslog.conf for rotation. A clever idea.
- What are the Windows A: and B: drives used for? That story and the link on Hacker news where I found it have some entertaining floppy disk anecdotes. I originally wrote “old floppy disk” but realized that was redundant. Almost all floppies are old at this point.
- Don’t Copy That Floppy! Why haven’t I linked this before?
- Don’t Copy That 2. Why didn’t anyone tell me there was a sequel?
Your unrelated link of the week: Deep into Youtube, the top-rated films. You may want to turn your volume down, and make sure nobody is around. Not for NSFW content, but because some of those films are so confusing that it’s impossible to explain to someone else why you are watching them. (via) There’s some Nico Nico Douga-sourced stuff in there, which I thought I’ve mentioned before, but I can’t find it now. Why do I even know these things?
