this seems relevant to current #meta discourse: "Why do volunteer content moderators quit?" (sadly it is paywalled)

For your consideration: every piece of software should have a little mouse that waves goodbye when you quit (Chu Chu Tataki, Sony Music Entertainment, Mac/Windows, 2000)

Came back from my mom's place with a suitcase full of my old fusion jazz CDs I hadn't taken home yet. Nice to have them again.

1989's Macintosh SE/30L is remembered as one of Apple's biggest flops. MacWorld criticised its rotated L display as "...bringing all of the issues and none of the benefits of a true L display", while MacWeek called it "Some kind of deranged P display nobody asked for".

Got a weird little rarity here. Is this something Amiga collectors are interested in?

Archive your Tweets with Tweetback

I built this tool a year ago but I feel like Mastodon folks would like it

The "Weird Old Book Finder"

Type in a search query, and it'll find one randomly-chosen public-domain book that matches the query -- and present it for immediate reading:

Why only one book? To prevent the paradox of choice! Just *start readin'*

Can't promise every book will be weird, but most are

A longer essay on how/why I developed it:

This was a search for "mastodon"
