C64 disk drives were usually connected through the slow serial bus. This article shows photos of the Commodore “IEEE-488 cartridge”, which made the faster PET drives available for the C64.

Printed out this fediverse find and pinned it under spouse photos at work because a) they tell me things like this a lot and b) I'm a broken adult who needs to hear it.

Es ist absolut unbegreiflich, warum mit Steuergeld finanzierte Software nicht standardmäßig unter freie Lizenz gestellt wir. Was die Gemeinschaft bezahlt muss auch anschließend der Gemeinschaft gehören.

Microsoft is shutting down its ebook store, and deleting all its customers' libraries:

The only reason they can do this is DRM, which means you never really own anything you've paid for.

Physical books are the most obvious alternative, but there are also DRM-free ebook shops. @libreture has a good selection here:

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
