Today’s movie: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner, without Vangelis, without Harrison Ford, without that much subtlety, but for a twist. It was cool for sure, yet we didn’t go anywhere near the Tannhäuser Gate. But here to comfort you is Edward James Olmos making a paper-sheep, just in case you didn’t know what you were into.

Those kind of self references are numerous, so far to border on gratuitous fanservice. Still the movie is beautiful, and definitely trying to tell us something, but never gives us the opportunity to position ourselves in regard to its message.

Atari soldering day!

Had to do some soldering on my Atari recently, so I took the opportunity to take some photos of the mainboard (from both sides since I also had to desolder and replace some components). Not that it’s that much hard to find on the Internet, but here’s my two cents. It’s a 1040STE, however I took the photos with my phone so it’s not the best quality:

Also if you want more info about STE hardware I highly recommend this site.
