Cray-1B, serial number 1, rebuilt for the recent SC18 conference.
Timelapse video:
The machine was on loan from the Chippewa Computer Museum. Originally installed at Los Alamos but returned to Cray: "When Serial 1 showed up in Los Alamos in 1976 it wouldn’t run for more than a few minutes yet it would run for hours in Minnesota. Turns out there was no memory protection and cosmic events at Los Alamos altitude were different enough from Minnesota."

I love the tiny, expanding Gopher network. People hosting small public access shell servers, sometimes with only 128MB RAM, sometimes more, access via a restricted shell, sometimes with git, sometimes with a weird publishing system, all of them with Gopher hosting. 😍
It feels like the old days!

Most civillised nations: "Our postal system is designed around the guiding principle of sending your stuff to the same building that you live in!"

Finland: "We dumped your shit in some random supermarket within a 10km radius of your house, go pick it up your damn self. No, it's not the same supermarket as last time, how lazy are you?"

CRTs are objectively cooler than modern flat panel displays

does your UHD OLED display have an electron gun in it? i didn't think so

Tune in to at 1800 UTC tonight (2 hours, 40 minutes from this toot!) for episode 31 of Half Hour of Power! Getting back to my roots a little in this show, almost every track is pure chip. Quite a bit of FM stuff, but also AY, ZX beeper and NES. Be there AND be square!

@tomasino is fantastic! I'm so excited to see how it develops. Kudos and thanks for bringing something great into gopherspace!

First snowfall of the season! Time to practice my "neurologically impaired penguin" shuffle again.

You know those guitars that are, like, double guitars?

Just gopher'd. Go have a look at it or I'll tickle you until you cry gopher://

Heading to away for work for the rest of the week. I don't have my Mastodon credentials saved on my work laptop, so this account will be quiet for the duration. I *will* have access to the Zaibatsu and SDF, so you can contact me in the other usual ways.

The gopher service of the Mare Tranquilitatis People's Circumlunar Zaibatsu's is now accessible as a Tor Onion Service at gopher://bztf2mno3tpwrqop.onio! At least, I'm pretty sure it is. If any keen out there would like to test this and verify, I'd be very happy to hear about it.

The spirit of winter: getting up late, eating breakfast, reading stuff, looking outside and seeing the sun shine, deciding to go out for a walk or a run or whatever, but by the time you get dressed the sun's gone and you know in your heart of hearts: this was it, the only sunshine you are going to see for the day. Fuuuuuh! 👹

I guess is, technically, a list of frequently asked questions, but I think traditionally the list is supposed to contain answers too?

When you definitely don't want some boring pedestrian dishwashing experience, but you're not down for anything *really* dangerous...

Never mind the shitposters, here's the OG SPC!
