Vala Periodicity

I just downloaded the vala source. When I went to untar it I found that it was exactly two months ago (to within the hour) that I downloaded it:

[rob@prefect downloads]$ ls -lu vala-0.0.*.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 rob rob 632114 Jan 28 22:58 vala-0.0.5.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 rob rob 691498 Mar 28 22:22 vala-0.0.8.tar.bz2
[rob@prefect downloads]$ 

Perhaps i’ll download the source again in two months time.

Jesus Christ!

It just happened. There is a PCB that was generated from the parts of some laser printers!

I think I’m going to go absolutely insane with joy. Maybe after some sleep.

Adapting your Insanity

To conclude the conversation I had with Justyn and Jeff earlier: A microSD card could be adapted into miniSD card form. The miniSD assembly could then be adapted into SD card form. The SD card could then be adapted into Compact Flash form. The Compact Flash card can then be plugged into a adapter to make it compatible with floppy disk drives.

Once the assembly is complete:

  1. You have no money
  2. You have to find a machine with a floppy disk drive, unless you purchase a USB floppy drive.

Next step I suppose would be to get lots of USB floppy drives, each with a microSD card in it, and RAID them.

Kudos to the first person to find a floppy disk-to-something adapter.
