Nope. I've been to my last Symphony concert. I've seen rude audiences there before, but this was beyond the limit. If your kids are too little to sit still, leave them at home. And if you're too sick to stop coughing, stay home yourself. People paid good money for those tickets.

Symphony ticket, check. Clothes ironed, check. Bus schedule, check. I'm ready to hear the #Milwaukee Symphony play Takemitsu's "From me flows what you call Time"!

Until now I do not own any storage system whatsoever for my Commodore C64 breadbin.

I am looking into several solutions like the SD2IEC (several) combined with a Final Cartridge III+ cartridge or an EPYX FASTLOAD cartridge.

The perfect yet pricy (for me) solution would be the Ultimate 1541 II-L cartridge.

Another one could be the Pi1541 but I haven't yet found any offer that can sell me the complete thing with the case ...

There are LAN and WIFI adaptors available for the good old breadbin. So it is possible to go online with a C-64! Quite fascinating ... :-)

Finally got off the fence and bought a good ticket to Symphony's upcoming performance of Takemitsu's "From me flows what you call Time". Masur is conducting! Looking forward to hearing it in MSO's over-the-top but acoustically excellent hall. Front row balcony!

Released in the UK on this day in 1967, the Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are You Experienced". The album was not released until August in the US. It took the performance at Monterey Pop, in June, to get the album released in the US on a different label, with a few different tracks, and different cover.

Seen on a Plan 9 mailing list: "this patch is clumsy and pushing for its inclusion after being told how clumsy it is is not how we do things here." Bravo!
