"VEIWING ENCORAGE AND WELLCOME"

broken-mower

Three out of four words wrong in one sentence. And in Comic Sans as big as it’ll go. Slow clap. Such a slow clap that my hands still haven’t touched together yet. Still haven’t. Still haven’t.

*Clap*

Thanks to Hoopy for finding this monstrosity.

Impressive spanning of several tech generations. Well done on managing to make an iPod dock look like it’s come from 1983.

"In the market for some cheap gold?, patient enough to test and unbend Pins?"

cpus-4-gold

Is that a thing people do now? Scavenging gold out of broken processors, like modern, nerdy, hunched-over-a-computer-desk rag & bone men?

To answer our own question, yes it is and it appears to be quite the grim task.

Blame is always best apportioned through a channel she’s unlikely to read.
