Done with #krita the 4.2 *test* build (didn't have any problem but they wrote to NOT use it for real work). Image hidden because too many eyes that see everything forever. Also my mother said that it's a furby, therefore a cw is obligatory.

I like furbies. Mine stays on a shelf, without batteries. Waiting, waiting.

It's so crazy that a CD/DVD/CD burner drive is only $20.

Optical drives have a laser assembly that not only tracks inward and outward to follow the microscopic "groove" in the CD, but the lens shifts up, down, in and out on a tiny electromagnetic assembly, to adjust for warped disks and imperfections.

The motor speed is tightly controlled, and it reads and writes to a magic disk with lasers.

This thing is a miracle of engineering. And it costs less than a steak.

windows 98 experts, I need help.

I have an old thinkpad that came with a blank hard drive, i managed to install an old version of xubuntu on it for fun a while ago, how do I install windows 98 on this? It has a floppy and CD drive. Just obtain a copy of win98 on CD?

Shapeways' 3d model viewer doesn't use 3d rendering in your browser, it literally sends a 3d transform and some parameters over to a server which sends back a rendered image of the object., that gets put in an <img> tag. This is wild.
