So I got out some CF cards and noticed something odd about this one. Do you see the weirdness?
They're definitely not USB.
This is a normal CF card in most cases, you can use it in normal CF card readers and such
1. it only works with jumpSHOT CF cards with the "USB enabled" logo on them
2. THERE'S NOTHING INSIDE IT
But that's two microcontrollers. Why not save money and just have one?

This one is a MicroWeb Touch-1 XT/AT. Kinda.
See if you look up that keyboard you find the Deskthority page on it, showing this.
It's clearly pretty similar, but there are some differences.
Also that one uses a PC/XT/AT DIN5 connector, and this one uses some kind of RJ connector.
This one isn't in the greatest of shape, but considering I got it from the Chuck Colby estate sale, it's surprising it isn't completely water-damaged.
It's got some minor rust damage inside, where the metal clips rubbed off on the PCB.
we should apply that logic to the current generation of consoles.
So the Switch is a 256bit console. It's the Nintendo 256.
The Xbox Series X? terrible name.
Better call it the "Xbox 512 Blu-ray".
like the Jaguar CD, the Sega CD... the good old days when consoles had their media type in the name.
Boringly the PS5 is also a Playstation 512 Blu-ray, because both of them are using the same AMD Zen 2 CPU.
The Switch one is weeeird. It's built on an Nvidia Tegra X1, which is an 8 core 64-bit CPU, so that should be 512, right?
Well... no. Four of them can't be used. And later documentation doesn't even mention them.
it's some weird system where the system-on-a-chip has four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores but only the A57s are usable?
and the most common subclass of these problems is the one where you have 3 items/animals to cross with.
This is alternatively called the "fox, goose, and bag of beans" or "wolf, goat, and cabbage" puzzle.
the idea is that your boat can only carry one item at a time, but if you leave the wolf/fox unattended with the goat/goose, the wolf/fox will eat the goat/goose.
and similarly, the goose/goat will eat the beans/cabbage if left alone
so you have to set up a set of actions that never leaves either side of the river in one of the lose-states.
the solution to this variant being:
1. take the goat/goose over
2. return empty
3. take the wolf/fox over
4. return with the goat/goose
5. take the cabbage/beans over
6. return empty
7. take the goat/goose over
also yesterday: elon musk leaves twitter "for a while" and jeff bezos steps down
COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT!
elon's gotta be off twitter for a while because they don't have wifi on the SunCrasher 9000, and bezos keeps stealing his phone anyway
elon thought he wouldn't need it because of starlink but THE SATELLITES ARE IN LOW EARTH ORBIT, MUSK, AND YOU'RE HEADED TOWARDS THE SUN
bill gates is the only one who still has internet access because he remembered to set up a long enough ethernet cable
(although tim cook joked that was just because his WinPhone doesn't have wifi support anyway)
zuckerberg asked if bill gates would let him use the network connection for a while and while billy g was fine with it, it turns out none of the other billionaires brought phones with built in ethernet ports
finally, the win95 phone comes up top!

To do a Namaskaar or bow before someone means that you are humble or without pride and ego. This means that we politely bow before you since you are better than me. Pranipaat(प्राणीपात) also means the same that we respect you without any vanity.
Surrendering False pride is Namaskaar. Even in devotion or bhakti we say the same thing. We want to convey to Ishwar that we have nothing to offer but we leave all our pride and offer you ourselves without any pride in our body. You destroy all our evil karma.
We bow before you so that you assimilate us and make us that capable. Destruction of our evils and surrender is Namaskaar. Therefore we pray same thing before and after any big rituals.

The ancient Indian kings called a head crown as a Mukut and it would mostly constitute of a golden ornamental headgear like an oval cap with gems.
Sometimes it would also include a halo circle to show the divinity of the king
As it was considered that kings were appointment by the gods themselves. Example the kings of mewar considered themselves to be the ‘Diwan of eklingji')
But in most cases very few Mukut with halo effect have been found.
Samudragupta in the gupta era coin. You can see the helmet like headwear on him.
Till gupta era the solid golden head wear was used in most days of the monarch.
But since the onset of 8th century it reduced in usage and was now used only as a ceremonial headwear.
Whereas earlier the Maharaja had to wear the mukut whenever his court was in session.
Still mukut was being used prominently for ceremonial activities till recent times.
Maharaj Dahir of Sindh👇
But as times past the style of headwear also changed.
The kings mostly wore turbans ordained with pearls and gems while rarely anyone wore a true Mukut after 16th century.
