Over at everyone’s favorite independent game site, itch.io, Randy Lubin and Copia are celebrating Public Domain Day with a public domain remix game jam, and that sounds like the best idea I’ve heard this year.
Today, a co-worker and I were discussing Forbidden Planet, which lead me to Space Patrol, and from Space Patrol through popular depictions of outerspace throughout the history of film. This is a list of media, most of which you can watch for free.
As I mentioned in a recent post, I have started using a Gateway Handbook 486 as part of my daily workflow. It’s a little DOS laptop that you can read more about in my previous post. One of my favorite things about using this machine has been Social Media. This post is about how I’m interacting with Social Media and Blogs from a DOS laptop, and how you can apply the same techniques to your life for fun and profit.
I recently acquired a Gateway Handbook 486. It’s a tiny DOS laptop released in 1994. Tiny might be the wrong word. It’s the largest DOS machine I own (after my HP 200LX and my Prolinear Palmbook 386), but it’s Tiny compared to other laptops of the day, and especially laptops with a 486. I used it to write this post.
