@djsundog I can't remember it off the top of my head, but it sounds like the kind of instrument Hotblack Desiato would play and that's rad.

@ajroach42 Depends on how "retro" you want things to look! I was wondering about whether those (hackable) CVS "disposable" PV2 video cameras would be available in bulk cheaply, but it seems they're old enough - and probably bad enough - that even eBay doesn't have them. They were fun back in the day though, always had one in my pocket, before it was feasible to do similar with a camera phone.

@nightpool Scandalous! Regardless, enjoy your generic letter chaining game.

@nightpool Nice! Yeah, I'm planning on doing the same shortly.

@SuricrasiaOnline A hot-air rework station will clear that right up for you, but yeah, it boils down to a hot air gun and tweezers. If you've got the board hot enough there's not much adhesion between the components and the board unless they're through-hole components. (If they are, a PCBite is real nice for holding boards in place in nearly any circumstance, but a book will do in a pinch.)

Currently inordinately annoyed that the print editions of the Unicode spec don't include the annexes to the spec. Over a thousand pages, but not the ones I really need right now. πŸ™ƒ

@SuricrasiaOnline I don't know, but it sounds like the intro to a heist movie.

@peter Mozilla announced they're creating a cryptocurrency? πŸ˜• Got a link? All I can find with a quick search is the kerfuffle about them reminding people they accept it via a third party for donations, and then subsequently deciding maybe they shouldn't, stopping temporarily, and promising a permanent decision later.

@ajroach42 Minor recommendation: list the things (and maybe who made them) in small print with the second sign.

@ajroach42 @djsundog @mdhughes It's supported in Firefox, Chrome, and its forks, but probably not in, say, Lynx or whatever. I'd consider it usable by most people using a recent enough browser to run JS and not be full of exploitable vulnerabilities. 🀷 But yes, a static file and some JS is probably the right path forward here.

@ajroach42 @djsundog @mdhughes Careful, you'll end up deciding a WASM version that runs in the browser and serves to itself is useful for some reason. πŸ˜› (WASM is neat, but I wouldn't necessarily bet on it for archival purposes.)
