Pinned ping

I've been dropping off voter registration papers off at my neighbors' doors. I hope that the shotgun approach gets at least a few people enrolled.

This week's animu has been brought to you by the local library:

-> Spice Woman
-> Matriarch Mononoke
-> Flying Pig Man

I once had not enough wall-warts.

Much like skin warts, I now have too many around.

Wow, one of the surge suppressor strips in my house actually went out.

Too bad most models don't kill power after end of life.

Around eight years ago, I was fortunate enough to find this as a Goodwill for $20, in frame and all.

Kimishima was once a Nintendo CEO.

I feel like digging up a good ol' schoolyard argument:

Back in 1999, I met :hacker_b: :hacker_i: :hacker_l: :hacker_l: :hacker_n: :hacker_y: :hacker_e: the Science Guy while he was firing model rockets at the park behind my school. I was jumping for joy, whatever he was feeling it was the exact opposite.

I was able to fire a few model rockets myself, but that guy was a fucking prick.

I, six years old, was very vexed that day.

Never meet your heroes.

Here in the US, I watch BBC news over the air without paying an aerial license.

Checkmate, Brits.

the future is:

If I try to neatly mount the TV antenna, it loses half the channels.

However, if I carelessly throw it behind the A/V cabinet it picks up everything quite well.

Perhaps a parallel-serial user port device that sends the data over to my PC with a serial port, and then test if the random numbers supplied are strong.

Using the expansion but would be trickier since you would be directly interacting with the system, but this method would allow for cycle-exact number reads.

Of course, this is all hypothetical. I'm feeling curious enough to try something out.

I would like to try and test if the SID chip is capable of providing cryptographically strong pseudo-random numbers. These numbers would have to be fetched 8 bits at a time:

Someone rang the doorbell. I looked through the window, and they definitely saw me and heard that I ran away to hide.
