IBM System/360, 1965.
We must concede that though we can maintain the paths of URIs over the lifetime of a service, most domain names are inevitably ephemeral. A two year registration to host a joke, a fifteen year registration to build a company. All will be resold.
What to do? We need to not fight the fragility. We need to look at the very heart of the web, the directory that connects the names of our services to the servers they run on, and we need to apply the concept of the Wayback Machine to it. We need temporal DNS, maintainable by librarians to keep the domains of the past connected to their archived futures. Your DNS provider as Time Lord*; rather than searching for what Geocities was like, picking a date at the DNS level could route all of your internet traffic through 1998. —

#spiderman hanging out.
Decided to take Spider-Man to Starbucks. #spiderman #starbucks
I get one of these.
A Three Rivers PERQ.
I get to pick it up on Wednesday. I don’t think it will fit in my car. This will make for a fun photoset.
A rip off of the Xerox PARC, by a lot of the same people.
I get it, more or less functional, on Wednesday.
The base is 26 inches tall by 15 inches wide by 16 inches deep. It weighs 110 lbs.
The Monitor is 18 inches by 13 inches by 18 inches and weighs 30 lbs.
The screen is the exact size of an A4 sheet of paper.
It has a 12 MB hard drive, that is 14 inches wide. It uses 8 inch floppy disks that hold somewhere between 250KB and 1.2MB. ( I am giving the range because I am honestly unsure of the actual capacity of the drive. I’ve never used an 8 inch floppy before.)

justt watched the dark crystal for the first time in i don’t know how long
i remember liking it more when i was little
Other movies that don’t hold up as well today?
Movies that do?
i think willow holds up well, and fern gully also made good laughter material
those are the only ones i’ve watched lately
I agree with Willow. Fine movie.
The Dark Crystal, I did not watch as a child, so I do not feel fit to comment.
Fern Gully… Amber begged me to watch that one. I can’t do it. I just can’t do it.
