Sometimes I watch Youtube videos on a channel called “The 8-Bit Guy”. I originally saw one on restoring an Osborne 1 “portable” computer. When I started at Computerland going on two score years ago, they’d been without a service department guy for a while. I walked in to a stack of Osbornes needing repair and learned fast. Any way it caught my eye.
I watched a video on rebuilding the battery pack in an old Apple laptop. Afterward, what happened was so bizarre, I had to comment on the video:
“You can’t make this up. Our smart TV asked me to rate this video with this dialog:
If anyone needs me, I’ll be at a black site somewhere.

The cats were driving M nuts. She wrote “I’m tired of their shenanigans. They think it’s my duty to entertain them”. Auto-correct jumped in and changed it to “Duty Town Terrain”.
When I left the job in Los Alamos, I sent myself a bunch of emails. The digital equivalent of cleaning out your desk I guess.
Remember when Spaghetti Cat was the big thing?
Remember when Sweet Brown and “Ain’t nobody got time for dat!” was the big thing?
My friend emailed and the bobcat picture is from October 9, 2016.
Going waaay back, remember the Partnership for a Drug Free America PSAs?
But try to find the Grape-Nuts commercial where Euell Gibbons asks, “Ever eat a pine tree?”.
You ever look at some of the spam that gets caught by email filters? Sometimes there are lengthy paragraphs of text that looks like they were scraped from random emails, texts, and web sites. Some of it is tiny, like this one, and some is white text on a white background that goes on and on.
Every now and then there’s something funny in it, like this bit of slam poetry.

LOL, Jamaican dance hall music
This popped up at an online Sudoku site. I probably don’t want to know.
Dang Etsy, do you know something I don’t?
I’ll start with this cartoon and get it out of the way.
I need to get one of those things that helps you make straight text.
September was safety and security awareness month at work and this is the logo they chose.
I couldn’t resist. The same words according to an on line translator.
Not to be outdone, a buddy at work pranked me in the same style. He did the spine of a manual on my bookshelf too.
It’s el Día de los Muertos so time to put up some Halloween images…
I found these saved on a thumb drive from about a year ago.
We’d recently seen a video of Pete, the farting wombat, eating corn.
M sent me a link to this video with the subject “OMG”. Original video is gone but I re-found it.
Wombat did a better job.
I didn’t think it was real because her scalp didn’t bleed. But then she posted six (!) follow-up videos and one of them was her going to the doc.
MORE WOMBAT, LESS TEENAGERS DESPERATE FOR “LIKES”
Obviously, I’m easily amused.
