The real question is if it has a big ol' red switch on the side.

286 Zenith computer with 3MB of RAM incoming!

It's not actually that bright, it's just the ridiculous flash on the camera makes it seem that way.

So I was given an old CRT TV to have in my room. Nothing too interesting there except for the fact that it makes a small 8-bit sound when starting up and it instantly became one of my favorite TVs.

Otherwise, it works just like any other CRT TV.

Darkdata got me a holiday card:

Okay, several cards. Still...

Weird mixture of stuff -- pelican hard case for my headphones since the provided one was huge and falling apart, 250g of nag champa, Dell E177FPF since I needed a monitor with a VGA input for FPGA projects (and older systems), and a cardbus wireless card for the thinkpad 600 I've got sitting here. Now to get a linux with b43 installed so I can use the internet...

More storage (2-4TB) probably in the works in a month or two. Extra backups are never a bad thing...

I quite enjoy Ashens's stuff, I'd recommend looking into it.

I'm on a mission today to buy bath towels. Mine are ten years old and no amount of vinegar and baking soda is ever going to bring back their soft fluffiness.

I think so anyway. I've been a fan of his for over a decade or so though.
The second book is I think more descriptive about the games and the context they were released which I think is good, where the first went on tangents a bit more.

From about a week ago: Attack of the flickering skeletons finally came in and I got Alphaville - Fovever Young and Camel - Moonmadness a day or two later.

Forever Young I knew four songs of before. Most of it is good and even the last two songs might grow on me eventually.

Moonmadness was more of a "let's try this" thing. I like it a lot, but for what is described as rock it's so very, very mellow.

A Wireless Repeater which actually worked well until I managed to short it while trying to hit the reset button. Yay!

In my ongoing effort to eventually ditch carrying a handbag (most of the time anyway) I bought a phone case that has a spot for cards in it, and an orbitkey.

Unfortunately I bought the wrong phone case, so today I have to go to the post office and return it so I can hopefully get one that’s the right size.

Little late, but for Christmas got quite a variety of things. I'll post some pictures later if I can remember.

*An old Polaroid. Didn't have any film but the flash still works
*The three Super Famicom Final Fantasy games (4, 5 and 6)
*Super Mario Collection for SFC
*A new Audio Technica turntable along with the Bit.Trip's Greatest Bits record
*The Turquoise and Black N2DS XL
*One of those CultureFly SNES boxes
*Some nice flannel
*Other misc. things

Flannel. Lots and lots of flannel.

Hey, at least I'm warm this time of year.

I got about $350 in cash, though I kind of wish I didn't get anything. I don't know if that sounds weird or not, but I just... I don't know. I would have given the money back but it would have made things even more awkward.

I'm probably going to spend it on getting a Kindle so I can try to get back into the habit of reading things.

My Christmas present to myself arrived yesterday. Haven't gotten to test it yet because I had a killer headache when I got home from work last night.

I got -1 gallbladder and five abdominal incisions a few days before Thanksgiving. It's all been healing pretty nicely, though.

About a month ago (don't remember exactly when), my brother got us a PS4 and some games. He's been playing a few of said games on Twitch (LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Let It Die, Loadout, and Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero so far), which I can link to if anybody's interested. He's gonna be doing a lot of streaming next week, from what I can tell.

For Christmas, he got me a copy of Quizmaster: The Life and Times and Fun and Games of Bill Cullen. Great book on one of the best game show hosts.

i got nothing except these hair clips from MUJI 無印良品:

and this skirt from them too:

hopefully someday MUJI 無印良品 will open a Seattle store so i can continue my unbranded, high quality lifestyle.

Why am I just now realizing that this thread is mostly full of Pokémon-related stuff?
All I can say for something "new" I've got is... "I got a bad pun. You'll hate it."
Here goes:
I have some corny jokes, but some people think they're amaizeing.

And still nothing Pokémon-related! Just Un-Lucky, I guess...
Yes, more pun. Happens when I'm bored and tired. You'll get used to it.

I got this baby early:

Supposed to come "early 2018," but instead they sent the body early. In "early 2018," I expect they'll update the software to the way it was intended to work.

She's a beaut, she is, the Light L16.

I actually didn't get anything else exciting besides money.
Emptied my wallet on a gift for my cousin, too. He started using it immediately, so I know he won't return it. ;1
