That laptop was a cheap-o p.o.s. I pulled from the pile behind my desk at work:



I buy em cheap and in bulk for our RTD Systems. The lowest system resources possible but without being in S-Mode. I can't stand S-Mode. It's already enough to have to install .NET 3.5 so I can get the RTD system software installed and running.

Nice! It looked retro! Never even heard of RTD systems or S-Mode

S-Mode = A lock on the OS for installing software other than things from the Microsoft Store. Low end laptops will usually have this feature enabled.

RTD System = Resistance Temperature Detection. Basically, just a thermometer hooked up to a laptop via wireless transmitter and receiver for temperature monitoring.

That's cool, didn't know that.


I did buy my parents a new desktop though since this is a Christmas thread and we are chatting about computers. It's a solid-state hard drive. It's a major upgrade from their 2011 computer.

^ Times two, Mindfulness: a nice mini-sculpture, indicative of Plankton's physique I pressume.

(And yes, to judge by the photo of the ingredients, that egg-nog looks pretty powerful.)

Happy Christmas to you both and to everyone on MB.
My Christmas gift to MB? This link to snippets and review of a Beatlemania curiosity: the short Christmas recordings that the Beatles issued to signed-up members of the Official Beatles Fan Club:

I like to read as I listen. That was nifty, Lisna. Thanks.



That piece was from here: http://originalflea.com/

I actually have the Beatles' Christmas album (probably a bootleg). It's interesting how they went from basically just being young clowns, to being more experimental to actually sending separate greetings at the end (Hearing John and Yoko singing to each other is always a hoot).

Tried to see if I could find the original 1967 message (Christmas Time Is Here Again), but the only thing I could find is some mash up with the Beach Boys (or at least a band that sounds like the Beach Boys). It's a lot more than what you here on Anthology though.
