Yeah, at least commemorative coins have some intrinsic value. Not much, but it does exist.

Man, I want to work for MBARI sooooo bad. I did get to do a tech demo for them a few years back. But that was for a lame-ass, standard IT enterprise system, not some fun project.

Totally off topic, but looking at the leading image, I totally got flashbacks of The Palace chat.  We should bring that back (and it looks like there might be active servers out there still)

Which is a little odd to me - when I went to a taping (back in 2003, so still Bob Barker), my buddy got called up and ended up getting to and winning his Showcase Showdown (he also spun a $1.00 on the wheel). For like 90% of the stuff he won, especially the big ticket items, they just gave him money. Much easier to Read more

If the content was a bit better, I’d pay for an ad-free tier. I happily pay over at Ars Technica for a “Pro++” account which gets you no adds and an (ad free) RSS feed of their articles.

Yeah, but if you were to use that space for a USB port, then I could still use an SD card (via an adapter) or just a USB flash drive. Again, I could see it if you already use SD cards a lot, but I don’t see the draw over good old USB

I guess I’m not the demographic for this (I’m not a content creator), but is an SD card reader something people are begging for? The only time I ever use an SD card is flashing firmware on my 3D printer. I juts don’t see the draw unless you are constantly transferring data from a camera. HDMI seems odd, just due to Read more

Oh, this reminds me of Del Taco’s Big Fat Crispy Chicken Taco.   Those have come and gone multiple times.
