And for anyone not getting the reference:
These are found audio (or lyrics) from Godspeed You! Black Emperor and A Silver Mt Zion, applied through the Death Generator (on NES games).
I hope to find some other band+console combinations that work this well in future.

maybe I'll try the mountain goats with sega genesis, or AJJ with arcade games?

oh hey, great.
it's fun when you decide to make a hilarious meme idea you just had and you find out that the first documented instance of it being used as a meme was transphobic
for context: the meme is the "select all squares with " captcha. The first example knowyourmeme documents uses "female" and a picture of Caitlyn Jenner.
I was totally gonna make a version of it that said "floppies" and include pictures of a lot of things that get confused for floppies often, like jaz drives and magneto-optical disks and it was gonna be really funny to, well, me, but now I've lost all the steam to do it ImageImage

December 1985 InfoWorld:
An author puts the first chapter of his book on Compuserve and The Source, and offers 5$ for users to crosspost it to other BBSes/services. electronic books? it'll never catch on.
California was considering workplace safety laws about computer monitors. Interesting.
IBM may have to take back a bunch of PCjrs! terrible, but I'm sure the PCjr will spring back and become a success, any day now.

ugh. I forgot how annoying puzzle games are to put in the generator.
puzzle games are much harder to cheat at!
and this goes to a ridiculous extent.
You see that "CR 2" over on the right? that's the number of credits (lives) you have left.
I CAN'T EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW TO HACK THAT
you might go "isn't that super-easy? just set a search on 2, then lower it to 1, then try again?"
yep, finds two results. neither works. both at once doesn't work.

I thought I'd play Wario's Woods for #NESWeekend but I forgot two key factors:
1. this game doesn't have a score counter
2. even though I haven't played in a year or two, I'm apparently still pretty good at it. I'm on level 61 now and I don't know when to stop
obligatory mention of the one fact anyone mentions about this game:
Because the ESRB was formed in 1994, there are no NES games with ESRB ratings... except this one.
The game was the last officially licensed NES game, which is why it was late enough to have an ESRB rating. It was released simultaneously for SNES and NES, with the tech versions being basically identical other than some graphical differences

Time for another teardown!
This is the Stealseries Sensei [raw] Rubberized gaming mouse, model M-00001, product number 62155.
This is one of the (surprisingly) few mice that have left and right buttons (that can work at the same time), an ambidextrous design, and can be used on linux.
But the right mouse button is going on this one so I gotta replace it.
Opening it up, we see the main PCB

Mini-teardown time:
It's a Unirex 2.0 Alum8gb flash drive.
blank back
Pop! the lanyard end is glued in, and once it's removed the whole internals slide out the back
