We do life together!
#FBF#flashbackfriday Cruising last August.
Schedules can be tough to line up at times, but we do our best to make the most when we are off together. He'll join me at my classes, we'll go pop culture shopping, hit a theme park, see a movie or crash for a day vegging out playing #COD . .
What is it that you do with that one person who does life with you?
Anyone gettin' the Nier Automata novel 'Long Story Short'? Oct 9th can't come fast enough! Honestly Nier means sooooo much to me. I wanna learn every tiny detail about this series all the way through Drakengard to Automata. It has inspired me to start writing again. I love that there r various ways to tell a story. From movies, books, comics, plays, songs, videogames, etc. I love reading stories but i also love playing through stories. And one day I'd like to tell a story through a game. I want it to be full of depth and have players connected so deeply with its universe that they can't tear themselves from it. Yoko Taro is honestly a big inspiration to me. He's weird and artistic and I see parts of myself in him. -
Sony announces the PlayStation Classic, its own mini retro console!! If you’re the kind of person who has two beers and regularly launches into the same 20 minute-long ode to the original PlayStation for playing a seminal role in the maturation of gaming as an art form, well, do we have some news for you. Sony just announced its intentions to give the PlayStation the (winning) Nintendo Classic treatment with a tiny to-scale version of the PS1 called the PlayStation Classic. The teeniest new console is scheduled to hit shelves on December 3, retailing for $99.99.
Like Nintendo’s wildly popular SNES and NES Classics that paved the way, Sony’s PlayStation Classic will come pre-loaded with a cache of well-loved games. The PlayStation Classic’s lineup will feature 20 classic games, including Final Fantasy VII [editor’s note: hell yeah], Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
This is going to be pretty crazy !! Can't wait !! _______________
The 1995 Cyrix 6X86-P133 110Mhz CPU Processor w/.21 Grams of Gold! per Chip! How much Gold do CPU's & Computer Chips have in them? 🤔
Older computer chips, transistors & electronics components from the 1960's & 70's contain the highest gold content in general as they were often designed for military and aerospace applications which required them to have heavier gold-plated caps (lids) and leads/pins/connectors which offered the component increased longevity, heat, radiation and corrosion resistance.
During the 1990's some early versions of the Intel Pentium Processor, Intel Pentium Pro Processor, and many DEC Alpha (and similar RISC CPU's) had large gold-plated caps, connector pins, and internally had solid gold wiring making them good candidates for gold recovery.
Up to around 1998, very fine solid gold wiring was used in wire bonding the computer chip (die) to the substrate packaging. Gold wire used in Integrated circuit packaging were typically 99.9% pure gold. All other components (caps, lids, pins & pads) were only gold-plated. Some manufactures have also used aluminum or copper wiring in the past in place of solid gold wiring to cut material costs.
The Intel Pentium Pro Processor has one of the highest gold contents of any mainstream CPU package from the 1990's to date due to it's much larger package size contributing to a an increased number of gold plated pins and much larger gold plated cap. The Pentium Pro also had two separate chips inside so this doubled the amount of solid gold wire bonding that is usually found in a single chip CPU. Gold refining yields of the Pentium Pro have been reported to be as high as around one gram per CPU.
List of Ceramic CPU's that have the Highest Gold Content
Intel 186 / 286 / 386 / 486 / Pentium / Pentium Pro / i860 / i960
Cyrix 486 / 586 / MII
IBM 486 / 586 / 686
Motorola 68000 / 88000 series
NEC & Toshiba MIPS series: R4000 / R8000 / R10000 / R12000
AMD 286 / 386 / 486 / K5 / 29000 series
IDT Winchip C6 / 2A
HP PA-7000 & PA-8000 RISC series

Спасибо Музею "Московский Транспорт" за возможность выставить мою коллекцию моделей 1:43. Я ее начал собирать с пяти лет, в 1989 перевез ее в США и вот она постепенно возвращается! Обязуюсь перевести ее целмком и конечно пополнять нновыми моделями! Очень трогательно!#scalemodels , #collectors#музеймосковскийтранспорт
