  3. Clay, I've decided what I wanna do. Um, I wanna make the delete key operate in such a way that if you push it down it, it goes back one character, 'n' then if you hold it after about a second it goes delete-delete-delete-delete-delete-delete, y'know what I mean, like a backspace? See, I, I was really concerned with, on, on this one, y'know, tellin' people that you have to, you know, hit escape and all, and I think the delete, it just, it'll, it'll make it a lot better, and if that's not any great trouble to do it in software. Doesn't really matter at what rate it, y'know, it goes backwards, just as long as, after you hold it down about a second it goes delete-delete-delete-delete-delete-delete, y'know what I mean, like a backspace? Yeah, a typematic key, like a backspace on a, uh, uh, an electronic, uh, an electric typewriter. So let's just do that, and that way, uh, we won't have to, you know, hit escape and all, and I think the delete, it just, it'll, it'll make it a lot better, and if that's not any great trouble to do it in software.

If you understand what I'm saying, and uh, see, I, I was really concerned with, on, on this one, you know, tellin' people that you have to hit escape and all, and I think the delete-delete-delete-delete-delete, it just, it'll, it'll make it a lot better, and...

  4. "Hello?"
    "Who the fffuck are you?"
    "This is the answering machine. Who's calling please?"
    "I know, I didn't make a reservation so I can't expect to be able to reach you, goodbye." (click)

  5. Eons ago they and MCI used Dan Ray exchanges with Cognitronics film-loop announcers (THEE - NUMBER - YOUHAVE - DIALED - ISNOT - ONTHEE - NETWORK - TWO - ONE - M - - - boop boop boop boop boop boop boop boop bo-boop boop boop...) That was when Sprint was still SPC, before the era of innovative fiber-optic digital networks providing connections so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Evan covered that some in the Early 80s tapes about CCIS networks. I have no idea what they're using today but I wouldn't rule out them being a DMS house since they're so common.
  6. We're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please check your instruction manual or call the business office for assistance.

  7. The "Rules, Guidelines and Announcements" section is required reading for all new user accounts.

  8. I'm glad they brought back New York Seltzer a couple years ago. It's still available as of this post. Allegedly somebody also reintroduced Clearly Canadian but I have yet to encounter it (maybe it isn't available on this side of the 49th?)
  9. I wonder if xcoffee would run on a modern Linux with X11R6. Obviously it wouldn't have anything to retrieve unless you managed to hack it to retrieve from a different camera.

  13. Why and how is it that a 384Kb straight-stereo MP2 file encoded from a 25-year old CD can sound like bubbling metal when played as "fake quad" in SQ or QS mode on my dad's Sansui QRX7500, but another encoded using the same parameters, sourced from a modern 96Kb Youtube MP4 audio track can sound perfect? It's a British CD of 80s new-wave hits versus a Youtube file of a Bruce Springsteen song, played on a "PONO" device (i.e. Neil Young's wet dream [rant about this thing's design to come later]). Were they *really* striking CDs from low-bitrate lossy compressed audio files or getting overly carried away with noise reduction way back then like they all do now?

  14. Well... I guess this is why. Since the summer of 2016, the coffee maker is on permanent loan to the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum (de) in Paderborn. (Crappypedia) http://www.hnf.de/en/permanent-exhibition/exhibition-areas/everything-goes-digital/the-world-at-your-fingertips-history-of-the-internet.html Oh but wait... what's this then? (http://kaffee.hnf.de/mjpg/video.mjpg) The 30-year old coffee machine that just won't die. I wish my Mr. Coffee was like that.

      Did Audichron ever use film in their very early machines or did they always use drums?

      Near as I can tell from quick research, their machines were always drum-based.
