I recently acquired a Gateway Handbook 486. It’s a tiny DOS laptop released in 1994. Tiny might be the wrong word.

I used it to write this post.
It’s friday! That means it’s time for movies! At least that’s what it means this week, who knows if that’s what it will mean next week! Today’s movie is called Nancy Drew, Reporter. It was released in 1939, and it’s a fun, rollicking romp.
