Previously, previously, previously.
I love this hugely.
Oh, sweet mother of god...that's beautiful.
The only thing that would make this cooler is if were built using something like a Commodore 64k or an Apple II. A monochrome screen would be the icing on a sweet, sweet case.
with a cassette player too for loading old data :)
Looks like something out of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, neat!
And why can't I buy this mass produced?
Clearly something is wrong with this segment of the space time continum.
it'll happen soon. just think long-tail of the bell curve.
Wow. If you've got to strip out your old treadle sewing machine, this is the best way I can imagine to do it.
would be even better if the computer ran via foot peddle.
more peddling = higher cpu freq
I'm sure the foot pedal is for Emacs.
why i haven't got one of those yet is a mystery.
It'd be SO victorian, too. Because then when you were trying to, say, render your video file, you could just hire some 12 year olds and give them espresso and candy and walk away for four hours.
thanks for brightening my morning with that image.
This guy rocks. The other links on the left are good too, I enjoyed Fun With Fetuses and the Steampunk Bass Amp looks good too.
On a slightly related note, I found this and thought "Hmmm, absurdly huge machines... Now who would post something like this?" So naturally you came to mind. Whittles had pretty much the exact same thought when I showed it to her, actually. Also, here's a flickr photo of the behemoth, which had to be done in composite as the thing is about 300 meters long.
Check out this Victorian / wooden modern laptop thing!http://thrillingwonder.blogspot.com/2006/10/wooden-laptop-design-new-fad-from.html
there is also one made out of old Mac, if you scroll further...
There are these things called LINKS.
One CLICKS them.
That flickr panorama is pretty sweet though.
well, it was worth a shot... Still, might as well tell you now that I always enjoy your posts. Keep up the good... uhh, procrastination-enabling behavior? Yeah, something like that.
So, uh - where did you find this then? Just curious, as you never seem to post your via's. :)
I never post "via" because it doesn't fuckin' matter. The only thing that matters is the person who created the content, not the autofellating network of people passing links around and pretending it's "journalism" or something.
I like to attribute my sources in case someone wants to read other things from that source too.
Yuck. another bland livejournal geek:
nice list of interests... agnosticism, atheism, board games, copyright reform, disc golf, electoral reform, ending the drug war, enlightened self-interest, free software, geocaching, how the mind works, mit mystery hunt, open culture, polyamory, programming languages, psychedelia, rationalism, science fiction, skepticism, strauss & howe, the case against ip, tivo, underground music
look at meeeeeeeeeeeee! look at meeeeeeee! I READ BLOGS!!1
hey, autofellating is how i feel better about myself ;P
