I do know what cursive is. I was taught how to write it. It's not remotely important. But that handwriting is just amazingly pretty.


it's gorgeous .. i wish mine as that beautiful. I still use cursive ... the only time I get human waste from it is when i chart and some snotnose RN can't read it.

Pretentious, outdated, and unnecessary? That checks out. ;)

Cursive was the script used back then. The real horror.... they don't teach that anymore... so many kids today cannot read that.

How the heck do they sign their names? Graffiti tag script?

Play-Mate 2-Way Theater N-3000 III A (Nintendo Famicom/VHS Player)
This ultra rare 55 pound behemoth is a coin-operated Japanese Nintendo Famicom (NES) and VHS player that was used in hotel establishments. Similar to the FamicomBox & FamicomStation, this device allowed you to select between several games and pay for 10-minutes increments of playing time.

The system has 6 normal Famicom cartridges installed that can be changed out with other games. The Famicom controllers were fitted with extra-thick cables for durability.

Unfortunately, without keys to the hidden coin-box lock, the games are unreachable since the coin box is attached to the outer shell to stop unauthorized access.

10-minute increments?

Well that's garbage.

The Power Mac 8100 (first gen) used the same case as the Quadra 800/840, and they used Nubus slots. Some accelerator cards were available that piggybacked a PowerPC 601 CPU onto the 68040's processor direct interface (or a G3 CPU on the PPC 601's interface to upgrade a x100-series Power Mac), but the CPUs were soldered.


I still have my 7100 with G3 PDS card upgrade.

I remember when the G3 came out they touted it was "future-proof" because the processor was on a ZIF socket and could changed out, but I don't remember any ZIF upgrades that came afterwards.



I had a ZIF G4 upgrade in my Beige G3 at one point.

Yup. Out of all the Star Trek shows, DS9 was one of the few that I felt got it right more often than not.

You no mess with Lo Wang!
This "restoration" was done to a copy, not the original, but YIKES!

Image

The restorer "corrected" his restoration with the second image on the right.

Here is the original article in Spanish (a Google translation).

The original artist, Bartolomé Estebán Murillo, lived 1617/18-1682.

You should put "restorer" in quotes as well.

A shame. Murillo is a favorite of mine. One of those painters who should be far better known.

THAT was the restoration of "Ecce Homo de Borja":

Image

Apparently an accepted abbreviation for such botched restorations is "Ecce Homo-ing".

My article in Spanish (I read the translation) also pointed out other Ecce Homo-ing upon originals (some of which previously appeared elsewhere in Macstack in not within this thread):

la Virgen de los Dolores de Arucas (article in Spanish):

A statue of San Jorge (article in Spanish):

A wooden sculpture of Mary, St. Anne and the infant Jesus:

Both restorations were done by the same person.

The space balloon

Image

It would go to 100,000 feet above the ground. That's NOT SPACE. But ok, if you can watch the curvature of the earth (check mate, flat earthers!) and see day below and a black sky above you, that's cool, I guess.

We've seen balloons taking people that high, but each time it was ONE person, that had to jump from it with parachutes and be skilled/lucky enough to survive.
