Dammit, iTunes

Why isn't "video kind" settable any more? This had been working for years, and stopped a couple of weeks ago, but it's 12.4.0.119 which hasn't been updated since May.

3D Printed Curta

Marcus Wu:



Not exactly "actual size" -- looks like 4x or 5x -- but wow, I am amazed this thing works at all! Look at how grainy and fibrous the print is. This feels like someone trying to replicate a mechanical wrist watch using flint tools. Metallurgy? Who needs it. This is as bonkers as "Transistor-level Simulation 6502 in Javascript" or "Octophant, I Should Not Be".

Do you feel cheated every time you see something that is "3d printed" but is full of steel screws, springs and bearings? I do. Like, "It's a paper airplane! Except for the internal combustion engine." The lambda that is not self-hosting is not the one true lambda.
