Geek Night

I was plan­ning on a nice qui­et night at home un­til Steve dragged me kick­ing and scream­ing to the Lit so I could make some changes to the TwiFi site de­sign be­fore he goes down to Columbus next week to present on it. While I did this Andy showed some geek porn on the bar closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion. We watched a 1992 in­struc­tion­al video on a 15 ppm print­er and a sales video for file servers. Nick and Ballroom Johnson were al­so there, so there was talk over hand-drawn elec­tri­cal di­a­grams and Argentinian pol­ka. I al­so got the ba­sics put to­geth­er for a site that my bud­dy Jeremy re­quest­ed for his broth­er, who was re­cent­ly di­ag­nosed with sar­co­ma and has an even chance of mak­ing it an­oth­er year.

Since it has been awhile here are some cool links:
