This is a closer look at Hilltop House hotel. A 100 year old building in Harpers Ferry with a stunning view out over the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. Unfortunately the building has become very run down over the last few years. Under the circumstances I thought a sepia toning would be appropriate.

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

The trackball on the left is my preferred style of trackball — the Crystal Trackball is basically a transparent version of this. Too bad in the name of "progress", computer manufacturers have dropped serial ports, as if nobody has any devices that use them. I also lost the functionality to receive infrared transmissions, as my IRMan infrared receiver, supported by remote control program Girder, is serial only. Technological Progress: Breaking anything and everything you will ever build, making enjoying computers a constant and neverending struggle. It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

The mousepad is from when I worked at MCI Internet Engineering. I probably should have stayed there, but my consulting company pulled some shit I couldn’t agree too — work on Christmas Eve, or trade your vacation time for the flex time of not working on Christmas. In other words, you couldonly take the 8 hours of Christmas Eve off if you sacrificed 8 hours of vacation time AND worked 8 hours extra that pay period. Bullshit. They ceased to exist way sooner than MCI did.

Three different colors of cards here… Usually they are dark geren. That light green card is an odd color. Red cards are coming out more and more, and definitely my favorite.

And yes, that’s a VHS tape rewinder we got at a yardsale, to save wear and tear on our VCRs. But we phased our VCRs out, for the most part, and never really got any use out of it.

The micro-cassette recorder is the good kind with a "REM" remote jack… I have something that hooks to my phone that records phone calls automatically if you have a "REM" jack. But since I don’t, I have to hit record myself to record a phone call.

The Creative Webcam was actually our first digital cam, and was used to take our low quality (640×480 with even lower apparent pixel density and very very very very pooor ISO) honeymoon pictures.

And look at that old hub — 10base2! Of course with 10base2, you kind of didn’t NEED a hub at all times (I believe me and Carolyn and Ryan Somma‘s 3-computer network, only used for playing Quake, was 10base2 with no hub), so I wonder how I ended up with this.

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

A close-up of some cards I got rid of.

An *original* SoundBlaster — Probably cost close to 0 when I bought it for my 386. I recorded "I Like Food" by The Descendents onto my computer as a VOC file, becoming the first human being I ever knew to use a computer for the recording and playback of actual music. It would be some ~10 years after that before I actually had MP3s. (I was also the first human being I knew to be on a BBS, be on the internet, have a webpage, use social networking sites, use google or gmail, or have a flickr or youtube account.)

My Orchid grahpics card. This was hot shit in the late 1980s/early 1990s. I remember having a q.bat so that I could just type "q" at the command-line prompt to run QPEG, a JPG viewer. GIF had been out for awhile, but JPG was relatively new. Seeing anything in more than 256 colors was an amazing experience. The faded green QuadTel(?) card above it is a mystery VGA card that I don’t really remember using.

The red card is a failed SATA card that nuked multiple harddrives and is going in the trash. We actually shipped it back, had the company replace it, and are now throwing away the replacement without using it. If a company screws you over — make them pay. Make them replace the product, even if you have no intention of using it. Money is the only language that is understood.

And of course my 340M harddrive. I still have a single 340M file that is the raw data off this drive, as I moved it to a 4G drive that summarily crashed in 1997, and still have some files in there I might want to recover someday. Every now and then I mine the file for new stuff and find it, but I think I mostly finished when Carolyn went skiing in 2008.

US Economic Collapse: Henry B. Gonzalez Interview, House Committee on Banking and Currency

Henry Barbosa González (born Enrique Barbosa González; May 3, 1916 — November 28, 2000) was a Democratic politician from the state of Texas. He represented Texas’s 20th congressional district from 1961 to 1999. González was born in San Antonio, Texas, the son of Mexican-born parents Genoveva (née Barbosa) and Leonides Gonzalez (from Mapimi, Durango), who had immigrated during the Mexican Revolution. He attended the University of Texas at Austin and San Antonio College, earning his undergraduate degree. Later, he received a Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s University School of Law. Upon graduation, he became a probation officer, and was quickly promoted to the chief office of Bexar County, Texas. In 1950, he was Scoutmaster of Troop 90 of San Antonio, of which his son was a member. González served on the San Antonio City Council from 1953 to 1956, when he was elected to the Texas Senate, having defeated the Republican candidate, Jesse Oppenheimer. He remained in the Senate until 1961 and set the filibuster record in the chamber at the time by speaking for twenty-two straight hours against a set of bills on segregation. Most of the bills were abandoned (eight out of ten). He ran for governor in 1958, finishing second in the Democratic primary (the real contest for governor in a solidly Democratic state) to Price Daniel. In January 1961, González ran in the special election for Lyndon Johnson’s Senate seat, finishing sixth. However, in September, 20th District Rep. Paul J
