Had an interesting challenge the other week: a CD with fiendish copy protection that takes ~72 hours to rip using typical methods. I wonder if there’s a way you could do some clever seeking to find the ranges of invalid data and skip it without brute force reading through every sector.

Datadog’s UI is good at a lot of things, but I’m amazed its SSO integration is still so clunky.

I'm running an exciting URL game on Twitter:
If you know how to find stuff on the web, you might stand a chance of winning against some of the greatest minds on the internet which are already competing.

Discovered that a Shuji Terayama CD-ROM I bought comes with a Hypercard reproduction of a tarot deck he created with artist Nanami Utsuki. Features the full deck, with descriptions of the unique cards, and tarot-dealing mode.

Aside from the traditional tarot cards, it has a variety of unique cards with themes as out there as Criminal Business Association, Telephone Skills, and Artificial Eye Engineering.

Aha - it’s actually tarot, not karuta. A deck he made with Nanami Usuki.

Does anyone know if karuta is significant in some way to Shuji Terayama’s films?
