Mine too, along with a CDROM-drive, but it wasn't an SB card though. It was a no-name brand soundcard but still used a Yamaha chip.

Intel's Optane drives on Ice Lake Xeons are so fast they're causing XFS on Linux to kernel panic.

Here is a directory of suppliers of covid medicines,  medical supplies and equipment,  rt-pcr services, list of hospitals, quarantine facilities, etc.   Just navigate through the different tabs of the excel sheet.    Credit goes to the creators of this directory whose names may be found on the first tab under Gen Info.

What an incredibly cool project!

A Pilot Spent 17 Years And 40,000 Hours Building A 1:3 Scale B-17 Flying Fortress

Every part is bespoke, and everything works. It even flies! Although of course the cockpit is no longer accurate as the pilot barely fits himself into the space originally meant for an entire crew.

That thing resurfaced a latent memory for me. Watching Spielberg's amazing stories at channel 9. So a gunner situated in that clear bubble was trapped. I think a landing gear got stuck, the only way for the plane to land is to sacrifice the dude. Anyhoo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItnJbsljcE4

Someone bought off all of Caselabs IP and looking to build them from Sweden.

I hope they succeed as I always wanted own a Mercury S8 but [/size]I can only imagine how much of an uphill battle this is going to be as Caselabs has always been a niche brand.

Super Metroid FAQ by nemes1s. The guide has justified paragraphs, but is typed in a monospace font and does without any extra spaces. It's made justified by the author's word choice, sentence structure, and punctuation alone.

Nice that there are still people who make these and even more awesome that people read them. Usually most go to YT for these guides.

Throwback. It's been a lifetime ago. He's gone to do something else.

(I mean, look at what have become of gootecks- went off the deep end with the conspiracy and all.)

But thanks for all the memories Mikku Rossu san! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeU3-8ZkGLw

NASA is just now opening a vacuum-sealed sample it took from the moon 50 years ago | NPR

Quote
Fifty years ago, astronauts on one of NASA's Apollo missions hammered a pair of tubes 14 inches long into the surface of the moon. Once the tubes were filled with rocks and soil, the astronauts — Eugene Cernan and Harrison "Jack" Schmitt — vacuum-sealed one of the tubes, while the other was put in a normal, unsealed container. Both were brought back to Earth.

Now, scientists at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston are preparing to carefully open that first tube, which has remained tightly sealed all these years since that 1972 Apollo 17 mission — the last time humans set foot on the moon.

Why so long? To take advantage of the technology of the future — our present.

More at the link.
