@winduptoy we camped, which is always a lot of motorcycle packing tetris but fun for a couple nights.


@winduptoy that's a great tip re OSM!

Have you heard of the Mid-Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route? I did the New England equivalent with some friends this summer and it was a blast. Worth checking out. ridebdr.com/mabdr/

The best way to experience the countryside is on a dirt road with two wheels (usually I'd say a bicycle but these were fun too)

Last weekend with dad and brother

The Lost Ways of Programming: Commodore 64 BASIC

"When Commodore 64 starts, a welcome screen from BASIC awaits you. Even if you want to use it to just play games, you start with a programming environment. This tells you that you too can become a programmer and you certainly do not need to download gigabytes of tools and wait hours for your XCode or Visual Studio to install. "

@zvava the only universe in which the current protein craze could be justified.

also ouch

@winduptoy I've been thinking about this - both because I (really) like the design of Lichen and because I've been thinking about doing something similar with my site generator.

It seems like some people including myself like using Github's sites for its co-location with code, cost (free) and simplicity. I'd prefer if how I hosted my site was less dependent on Github, though. I could imagine some horrific serverless version that commits on your behalf via a gui (actually now that I've typed that, this is how a cms like netlifycms.org works).

So maybe don't do that? Hah! Not helpful but I'll be thinking.

The self timer arm (?) seems to be half-engaged. Pulling it manually with my screwdriver advances the shutter gears until....

Removing the bottom to get at the shutter gear assembly. Noticing something that's preventing the shutter action!

Read through this 3-part tear down and repair. They weren't able to find the culprit, so I may be in over my head simonhawketts.co.uk/2016/04/26

Pressing the shutter has no action or catch. Removed the battery but seems new. I doubt there's any sort of electronic action. From the manual it seems like the electronics is just for a light meter and optional flash.
