Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

WTF

This world is hardly recognizable anymore. It just...doesn't look like it used to. I'm comparing it to my childhood experiences coding in the 80's.

I saw this a little bit ago:

I remember when DOOM came out. I was amazed at the physics, the graphics, and the gore of the game. Now it runs on...a printer?

I don't even.

I can't.

WTF.

    And it starts going faster as you age, it seems.

    "I can't wait to be 18!"

    "Only three more years 'til 21!!"

    "Wow, 25...a quarter of a century?"

    "Dude, where did the last 10 years go?!?"

    "50?!? But I just..."

    "..."

    Nothing special there. This ignorant old biker has been running doom in dosbox in linux for ages.
    So he hacked a printer. The specs on the printer could handle it vs a dosbox computer. No?
