One friend takes a picture of a silly Cartoon Network billboard. I take it as a challenge (WOOhahaha).
Another friend posted the perfect tool: his goofy work ID picture (which he also used for his Flickr ID badge).
Tah-dah. Better Photoshopping’s been done, but I giggled the entire time I was doing it, and that’s what counts.

We reorganized our "gadget drawers", managing to get 4 drawers of stuff compressed into 2 drawers.

I had such high aspirations for this tape drive. I spent 0 on it! The blank DC2120 tapes were or so, and only held 256M. You can get a 1G USB thumbdrive for less than that these days! I had a fantasy of walking down dorm halls and being able to copy any data from people on the fly, but the reality was that you had to carry around a floppy for the software, and the process was still quite slow.

I did at least use this to back up my BBS. And when my harddrive crashed, the only remaining copy of my BBS was on this tape. And … I can’t get it off the tape. I still have DC2120 tapes that need recovery! When my grandad died, I tried using HIS tape drive to no avail. I’m keeping the tapes, but throwing away the drive. I’d totally pay for data recovery service (both for my tape AND grandad’s tape), but have a feeling they’d want more money than that. Anybody know?
