“Simon Ateba is a reporter from Cameroon, and even though he attends White House briefings, Ateba gets very little public attention, primarily because he is so infrequently called on by Biden administration spokespeople. Recently, frustration got the better of Ateba, and he vocally demanded to be called upon by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on her last day. Ateba’s violation of established norms and decorum have led to his newspaper being dropped from the Stripe online payment program, and the paper may have to shut down as a result.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether Ateba’s “improper” behavior and resulting ban from Stripe can be attributed to mere coincidence.”

“Gorka Ibargoyen bought an abandoned stone housebarn in the Bera Valley of Navarra and wanted to expand it to fit large houseparties without destroying the original character. With the help of architect friend Jordi Hidalgo Tané he went underground, building an annex to the primary home inside the adjacent hillside. Accessible via an all-glass corridor the addition is nearly invisible.

The cave-like addition resembles a fissure in a mountain, and that is what inspired Tané’s design, and is nearly invisible from the outside: it is accessible via a transparent, all-glass corridor. When looking at the model, Ibargoyen feared the hidden home might resemble a bunker, but the glass skylight in the green roof light combined with the long window running down the entire length of the structure brings in plenty of daylight to the subterranean shelter.

To unify the two structures, the used only glass, concrete, and wood for the interior, resulting in a concrete sink and a wooden shower. While the result is modern elegance, Ibargoyen insists it’s not a fussy home “Things are made to be used, and to show wear over time”, he explains and pointing to a wine stain on the cement countertop, he adds, “That is happiness”.”

Simply wonderful!

Setting up a new Telegard BBS in 2021…

“#bbs #pc #dos A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a printout of a CBBS bulletin board system session that happened 40 years ago last month. As a former BBS user and sysop, this was really exciting to me as CBBS is the grandaddy of all bulletin board software. I immediately wanted to set up a CBBS system afterwards and see what it was like, and how it compared to the Telegard system I ran as a youth, but…

Yeah CBBS is a *lot* more complicated to install. That will take a while for me to figure out, and then there’s the non-trivial matter of finding the right hardware. So that’s a future project. But I’ve got serious BBS nostalgia right now! So I decided to dust off Telegard 2.7 and install it just as I would have 30 years ago this fall, when my highschool had me set one up for them.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane. I’d originally wanted to restore a backup of my original BBS that I made to tape, but alas, I cannot find it! So we’ll just have to start from scratch and see what I remember.. or not.”

I wish I’d had my C64 online back in the day…I probably still could get the hardware and do it, but…why bother?

From what I understand, some people still maintain an active BBS on old computers.

That’s kind of neat.
