Anyone need a connectivity pack for an HP 100lx / 200lx? Got this in an estate sale auction, would like to give it away locally to an enthusiast. I'm a bit north of Seattle.

Boost if it'll help it find a happy home.

You know what sucks about companies that have moved to the cloud? I can no longer get free servers etc from them when they do a hardware refresh 😂

You're not a real hacker unless your computer weighs more than your chair.

Unless it is also your chair, then you get a free pass of l33tness on this one.

What are the easiest games to install on ubuntu linux that can be downloaded on another computer and copied over offline? Is flatpak or appimage the way to go for this? Cant sleep, need a distraction, only have a cell phone to download with.

I've had my jeep 10 years and got it muddy for the very first time today.
