Wowza, rich parents? those things cost more than a decent house at the time.

Really?  I had no idea.  My father was given it by his work.  I knew it was special but not that special.  

Oh yes, part of the failure of the Lisa was that it cost you a fortune. The GUI on that thing was a demanding mistress.

Edit: Actually looking closer that may be the lisa 2, I think they were a little cheaper. I'm an apple II fan myself, cause woz is awesome.

The Mac Classic was my first computer.

Yeah the Mac was nice, last real exciting thing Apple did computer wise, I reckon. However, the Mac (and Lisa) suck for one reason in my eyes, they did away with Woz's open design. Stupid, and a big reason why IBM and the compatibles absolutely dominated forever on.

$5000 held overnight then, we even had a rise to $5122. Hopefully we tread water above the $5000 water like this weekend & don’t fall back into the $4000 area.

This is what I'm thinking, right now everyone all over Twitter, chart drawers the world over are all fully expecting a massive dip in price.

Tape painters have been busy lately.

In my experience what literally everyone knows is coming rarely arrives.

Must suck to be Roger. Always picks the wrong side. Gox wasn't fine, Craig neither. Bcash isn't too. I am waiting for his turn to be destroyed just like happened to Craig.

When driven by wrong thoughts then yeah probably his time will come Wink


Think Andreas said something along these lines, but this is not a cult and we don't have gods or dieties. If for some magical reason he has the keys to Satoshi's stash it would speak less of Satoshi than more of CSW. Not like people will turn to SV even if he could prove anything. His best case is people starting to believe that Satoshi got brain damaged and turned into CSW, oh well current BTC will live on...

My immediate reply was going to be "won't happen, not a problem", but then I remembered I felt the same way about Trump winning the election. I guess the point is anything is possible, though its more likely that Mark Zuckerberg will be the next president.

The timing kind of bothers me, didn't he claim that the keys were locked in some trust till 2019 or was it 2020? But yeah most likely a PR stunt so the goal would be to milk it for as long as possible while trying to keep relevant.  (you know sort of like i'll reveal my taxes *after the IRS audit which has been ongoing for 30 yrs now)

I'm actually a bit of a collector (or want to be when I have the space) of the vintage 80s micros. My only decent one at the moment is the Epson HX-20 (first laptop), it has a built-in dot matrix and micro cassette, I use it for printing out wallet seeds and passwords private keys etc. Very cool. Also, my son enjoys learning to type on it, because of the printer.



heh i have a bit of a collection of early (early to me, i envy you guys with the serious old iron stuff) computers too.

* timex sinclair ts 1000 (zx-81 clone) with 16k ram expansion and sparky printer - my 1st computer
* commodore 64 with tape drive and 2x1541 floppy drives
* trs-80 model 100, looks very similar to your Epson HX-20 but minus the printer (very early portable laptop type computer) with 2400 (or maybe 1200  baud) modem
* trs-80 model one with expansion interface, 48k ram, tape drive, 4x5.25 floppy drives
* lnw-80 (trs-80 clone, uses trs-80 5.25 drives plus two shugart 8 inch drives)
* trs-80 model 4P (two) with 128k ram, bank switched, runs cp/m as well as native trsdos - a portable computer the size and weight of a sewing machine, but it has a handle and is fully self contained. find an outlet and youre up and running, has two 5.25 drives and a green screen plus a built in 2400 baud modem
* apple mac classic and mac plus (plus an external apple hard drive)
* apple lisa (two) - the later lisas, not the 1st model
* one of the 1st ibm clones (cant remember the name), 8088 (8086?), 8 bit expansion slots.. love that HUGE red power lever. took the hard drive like 5 minutes to spin down on power off.

everything boots.

all work but the floppies are getting to be hit or miss now. there are various software/hardware adapters to use another computer to simulate floppies/hard drives.. gotta seriously look into them.

i cut my teeth on those things. all have a fond place in my heart, many many hours of fun and learning.

Hey maybe some of you guys might remember a game on the Mac from 1990ish.

You ran around this castle (sideview) and has to throw rocks at bats and go down into a dungeon.  A bit like a Donkey Kong except you could throw things and moved through castle rooms. Have tried to remember the name for years.

also, we would need a very good weed simulator that can be uploaded as well.

And the weed simulator at such a stage of development would make weed seem like catnip.

i would not want anything but the weed program, simply because most other recreation drugs alter thing too much for my taste and usually have crashes when they wear off. weed Just Works for my purposes, and i have a LOT of experience with it. its my ultimate drug of choice, no need for anything else.

You could have weed that always feels like that glorious first time where you just couldn't stop laughing. Or be as high as you want without feeling sluggish. It could be more intense while simultaneously leaving you with clarity of mind that a normal human can't even have right now.

Also, psychedelics have no crash whatsoever and neither does MDMA in sensible doses. I'm not into stimulants or excessive use of alcohol, but yeah I guess those have crashes.

very true. never had any crashes with acid or mesc. never did mdma. but the stuff that hooked me back in the day, which i will not mention for reasons, had nasty crashes.

btw ever read larry nivens known space series of books? in them he came up with the ultimate drug.. a wire is implanted directly to the pleasure center of the brain and delivers a trickle current to it. its so powerful and addictive that people can starve to death as nothing is more important than that wire. they were called wireheads, and a main character in the ringword series was a wirehead for a period of time.

And no, I haven't read that book. Sounds like heroin or that rat experiment with the pleasure button that they preferred over food though.

pretty much that, yes.

if you read one book by niven, i suggest ringworld, the 1st of the ringworld series. multiple award winner. one of those books you cant put down. even if youre not into science fiction its worth a read, its simply that good.

The first computer we had in my house



I think nobody will be interested in my first computers.... Roll Eyes and it will not be shocking that it was the nintendo NES and SEGA console from that time, all the game boys, playstation series, xbox's ....

and I think real computer use was only from my 18th year for msn or how did it was called, little bit of internet watching, but really using a computer and laptop... I'm ashamed but its maybe not longer as 5-6-7 years or something.

How the F*** did I got in BTC Roll Eyes

Does computers you guys posting, never saw those things in my life but here Smiley
Why ashamed? I'm sure every single one of us has seen things that the others haven't. That's what makes life so good. Just imagine how dull reality would be if there was so little to experience that everybody did the exact same thing.
