So I did the math on car ownership, what else I'm I going to do on a day off, and came out at €487,16 per month for 5 years. **Gasp** Pretty sure next time, it's going to be a personal lease car for me. Also taking into consideration: by the time I own the bought car, it's only worth the price of scrap metal and rubber for the tires.
The characters have absolutely no chemistry, they all looked bored out of their skull. ☹️
I'm not religious, that's putting it mildly, but I do love me some #IndianaJones props, so I'm doing the Cross Of Coronado. I once contemplated doing the Ark of the Covenant as a coffee table for my living room, but nixed it when looking at the costs. So I mainly stick with the smaller props 😜 #Props #3dprinting #ItBelongsInAMuseum Pearls for the cross are ordered and underway.
A small #IndianaJones shrine in my living room. Typewriter is from 1937 and holds the 1st page of the script from #RaidersOfTheLostArk Grail is resin printed, Indy bust, idol and amulet are FDM printed on my #Prusa. These movies definitely left an impression on who I am, showing right from wrong and they did it in a fun way. #YouWereNamedAfterTheDog?
1st impressions: #MorphOS v3.17 looks very nice, it took my Morphos.key after some insisting. What I don't understand is why these guys are painting themselves into a corner. The PowerPC architecture is ancient, my PowerPC is still running but it will inevitably fail due to age. They really should make the switch to the 64 bit Intel/AMD platform or even Apple's ARM platform. I definitely see myself buying a MacBook Air to run a modern version of #MorphOS
Just made some better pictures, and want to show off what an amazing Mini-ITX case this is: Room for SSD/Blu-Ray recorder, 5 slot card station, Mini-ITX motherboard and integrated system fan. Sure you could hack a real #Commodore64 but why do the effort if this exists? Currently running a Celeron Quadcore, because a Ryzen need extra fans, losing the card station at the side #MyRetroComputer ⌨️
Testing out #MorphOS the #Amiga-like operating system for PowerPCs This is why I initially bought the Power Mac G5. Haven't looked at it since v3.04, will check out what v3.17 brings. #Apple #commodore Oh and luckily I still own 1 monitor blessed with a VGA port, or my testing would be a no go. HDMI to DVI did not work for me.
Felt like messing with some #Apple stuff today: Installed OSX Leopard back on my Mac Pro G5, I bought initially to run #MorphOS. Don't mind the golden #Commodore64 I'm running out of space to put all the retro computing goodness. Next up: Install my #Iomega #Zip and #Jaz drives. Why? Just because...
Remember in #TheDukesOfHazzard TV show the boys slid into the car because the door were welded shut? For the life of me: I can't remember ever seeing them arrive at the scene and crawling awkwardly out of the car. I suspect the process was less cool than the slide-in 😂
More hobbies than common sense: Lego, Raspberry Pi, Sci-Fi movies & series, movie props, Commodore & Linux computers, arcade & pinball machines. Left-handed.
