"Which five cartoons would you recommend to people to get an idea of who you are?"
Kimba the White Lion
Rocko's Modern Life
I went to the DorkbotPDX meetup last night. We did some necromancing on this old Panasonic Sr. Partner "portable" computer from 1983. It has an 8088 processor and a built-in printer! We managed to boot it up with an old DOS floppy, then we played the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
If you're curious about this beast:
Haven’t been active here for a while… Sorry :-) To make up for it, I got the film back from Oxford adventures in July (Needed to finish a roll).
Here is the Headington Shark, a monument to one guys long fight with a local councils planning department.
Something I’ve wanted to make a pilgrimage to for a long time.
Film is Ilford HP5 Plus ISO 400.
Gab moved into our neighborhood. I'm not happy about it, but I avoided reading most of the toots about it. I have to set boundaries in my life to preserve my mental health. I have to rely on the instance admins to block federation with #Gab servers. Things seem to be working out well, so far at least.
I came across two recent articles about all of this. If you're not interested, I'm sorry for breaking my rule and polluting your feed!
I took the camera to the repair shop. They said that it appears to be OK. They can't tell for certain unless they pull it apart. The electronics work, which is a good sign.
So I decided to do the rice trick, which people usually do after their cell phone accidentally falls into the toilet.
I'm going to pull it out in a week and hope that it's going to be fine.
The image below is a photo of me this morning (not actual photo).
I went to the Adult Soapbox Derby today. One of the cars is named "Rainmaker".
The perpetrator of said car thought it would be hysterical to drench me with a super soaker as he drove by. I'm not talking little squirt gun. I'm talking portable fire hose or something!
Not only was I drenched, but so was my non-weathersealed camera!

Mail call! Look what I got today!
I mostly shoot B&W. I've been needing color a bit more lately, so I thought I'd see what these different emulsions look like. That's six different Kodaks in 35mm.
I also have a roll of Rera Pan B&W negative and a roll of Rera Chrome color positive, both in 127. I posted that second photo back in November of last year. I'm finally going to test the Brownie Reflex.
