don't get me started on the nightmares thanks to In Search Of... 70s TV was fucking terrifying for kids.
I once stayed up overnight completely, like laid in bed terrified until the sun came up and then just got up and ate breakfast. All because I watched That's Incredible do a hidden-cameras-inside-of-a-Toys-R-Us special on ghosts and paranormal activity. I was like 7.
 
There was an episode of That's Incredible that featured a man who enclosed himself into a glass box for an extended period of time. The image of his limbs flopping out of the box still haunts me, and here it is ... https://youtu.be/QQ0-ArfK7f4?t=2210

PSA for those about to undertake outdoor cooking activities today: BBQ is a noun, not a verb, and it means "meat that has been slow cooked with lots of smoke". What you are likely about to do (cooking food on a grill) is called "grilling" or "cooking out". #TexasForever
Step one: nail the history, which is easily researched. https://twitter.com/adamcurry/status/1133006326248988672

Real talk: video editing for hours and hours is slowly ruining my eyes and that's terrifying 🤓
 
Time to let go a little man. Delegate!
 
It's more likely just age doing it. You're entering your mid-20s, which is when that starts.
I have never seen a “skit” on Instagram (or Vine) that I thought was funny.

Things get weird when you’re on your own.
What I miss is the look and feel of #fvwm. What I do not miss is the lack of modern sensibilities. Anything out there that has modern conventions (dock, icons, file management, etc.) with the look of fvwm/mwm?

Let’s see how this goes.
Only 1 Mac mini remains, lucky #7, a Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz with 4 GB RAM and a 320 GB drive (and SuperDrive) for $125. https://danbenjamin.com/forsale/
Now that #GoT is over, I have made a complete list of all the current shows that HBO has for me: 1. Chernobyl
There are still a few Mac mini's left (those not marked as Sold). I'll be announcing the URL tomorrow on @b2wshow so if you're interested, now's the time. https://danbenjamin.com/forsale/
The @rodemics Podmic looks really nice. Alas I won't be able to review one for you on my new podcaster's YouTube channel, because Rode has deemed me unworthy. Meantime, here's the website for the Podmic: https://www.rode.com/podmic

About 20 years ago I started a company building FreeBSD servers and workstations. We did a modest income, and eventually became a BeOS workstation VAR.
The Mac minis are selling faster than I expected. Two sold, several waiting to hear back. Still a handful left. https://danbenjamin.com/forsale/
