Luego de un merecido descanso, hoy celebramos nuestro tercer aniversario! 3 años desde que decidimos formalizar este grupo de inventores y convertirlo en algo más grande y de mayor alcance. Muchas gracias a todos los que nos han seguido todo este tiempo, que han creído en nosotros, que asisten a los eventos y llegan a los Domingo Steampunk que organizamos con mucho cariño. De verdad, muchísimas gracias a todos. Motores a todo vapor!!! Las fotos son cortesía de @loevid_producciones

Today has been another fun filled day. It's amazing how many miles I clock up in a week thank goodness I'm very grateful for my car !!.
.
You have to be here for some Trivia yeah? Okay okay I'll get on with it lol😂. .
Okay D.Y.K That November 23rd 1889 The First Commercial Jukebox was installed??.
Congratulations to the first commercial jukebox which was installed in San Francisco, CA. It was called the “Nickel-in-the-Slot”, and played wax cylinder records. Within 6 months it would earn $1,000. The word “Juke” – by the way – means ‘disorderly house’ – therefore this is a disorderly box of music. Put another nickel in – in the Nickelodean – All I want is having you – and Music, music, music.!!.
.
1992 - Business Week Predicted Computer Industry was "On the Skids"!!.
.
With IBM projected to lose $5 billion in 1992, Business Week described the computer business as "an industry on the skids." The magazine cited layoffs at most established computer companies, such as IBM, as well as newer firms like Sun Microsystems, Inc., as evidence that the industry was saturated. A solution, the article concluded, would be for each business to find its proper niche. Well they got that wrong then lol💰💱💲✔️.
.
2004 - Blizzard Entertainment released the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft is currently the most popular online game in history not that I have played it or ever felt the need whatever floats your boat eh ?. So that's your lot thanks for stopping by see you tomorrow 👍🏼.

D A T A  D R E A M (IBM 5150, 1984).
”One nice thing about having your own IBM Personal Computer is that it's yours. You might have thought owning a computer was too expensive – but now you can relax. The IBM Personal Computer starts at less than $1.600 US. And getting started is easier than you might think, because IBM has structured the learning process for you. All literature is in your language, not in ’computerese’. Once you start working with it you'll discover more than the answers and solutions you seek, and getting there is half the fun. Imagine that.”

I N S T A N T  G A M I N G (ZX Interface 2, 1983).
The ZX Interface 2 is a peripheral from Sinclair Research for its ZX Spectrum home computer released in September 1983. It’s got dual joystick ports and loads programs/games from cartridges. No more loading times!  But there’s a downside – the cartridges could only hold 16 kB of data, and the majority of the Spectrums were 48K-models (which software developers targeted). Only 10 games were commercially released on Interface 2 ROM cartridges (Planetoids included).

Evening to you all, We are in a digital age full of Music, Consoles, Games, & Film. No different then for today's serving of technical trivia. .
D.Y.K November 22nd 1994 The Sega Saturn Was Released? The Sega Saturn was released featuring 2 28.6 MHz processors running 32 bit. It had 2 video display processors, QSound surround and 2 MB of memory, with 1.5MB of video memory. It went for £337.72, or $450.
.
1995 - Toy Story Changes the Movies. 22Yrs ago today, YES 22YRS Ago Walt Disney Pictures released the first Pixar Animation Studios production of Toy Story, the first major motion picture that was created completely by computer-generated animation. A breakthrough film, Toy Story set the standard for all future computer animated films to follow and catapulted Pixar into a household name.
.
2005 – Microsoft launches the XBOX 360. It contained a IBM PowerPC with 3 cores at 3.2 GHz a core. It contained a 500 MHz ATI card and 512 MB of RAM. There were several versions starting at $249 and going up to $399. The limited Halo 3 version had a specially crafted case. .
Microsoft’s Xbox 360, the second in the Xbox line, was released in the US and Canada after a viral marketing campaign and intense hype. Initially, eighteen titles were available at launch, and of those, Call of Duty 2 was the best seller for the new console. An updated version of Xbox Live, which allowed online multi-player gaming and media streaming, was a major selling point for the 360, one of the top-selling consoles of all time. The 360’s main competitors were Nintendo’s Wii and Sony’s PlayStation 3, all of which were 7th generation video game consoles. Its successor, the Xbox One, was released 8 years later.

"Testing, testing......." (static cling) ///
Black & White wheat paste edition** Careful ----- I'll turn ANYTHING into a form of art. High concept, low brow, I don't care, nor get involved in the politics of it all. These categorizations are silly. I play with them for jokes.
Never been the one to feed into snobbish constructs only established to alienate certain sects of the populace, just so pretentious elitists can feel a sense of comfort, entitlement, and ownership, in their little "members only" club type tree house, specifically designed to ostracize and/or marginalize someone like ME. I say that because...I'm not of a previous template - I don't fit into an easy to label mould, and over the year's I've come to the realization that it intimidates(perplexes?) some from a distance. Well, they should come closer, and get to REALLY know me, and not use their fear as a weak defense mechanism.... open the mind, pleasant surprises are abound. I feel that exclusivity can be cancerous. Let's smash through walls like the Kool aid man, ya dig?
Looking to have some of my favorite NYC Graff writers like @ohdeezly
contribute to this by destroying it with colorful tags n throws. 
Then I'll use it in a new set design for my music movie.
Aiming for downtown Manhattan circa 1977-1983.

Vintage 1980s Sony Walkman WM-22 Cassette Player, was the first Walkman model that was sold in the UK for under £30. This model itself did not disappoint it carried over from the WM-9 but simplified. Became a very popular model, succeeded because it made Sony quality available at an economical price. #retrotech

For example D.Y.K That November 20th 1955 Lotus Notes Inventor Ozzie Was Born? Ray Ozzie, who designed the Lotus Notes office management software for Lotus Development Corporation, was born in Chicago, IL. Ozzie graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 1979. During this time Ray worked at the Computer-based Education Research Lab (CERL) on the PLATO operating system. .

What, you can’t read that? Oh. O.K. On this day, the word “hacking” was used in an issue of “the tech”, which is a massachusetts institute of technology newspaper. Here is a snippet of the article "Many telephone services have been curtailed because of so-called hackers, according to Prof. Carlton Tucker, administrator of the Institute phone system…" Basically, hackers were tying up phone lines between Harvard and MIT.
.
1985 - Two years after initially being announced, Microsoft finally ships the first version of Windows. Originally slated to be shipped in April of 1984, the long delay caused skeptics to began to accuse Windows of being “vaporware”. Due to the relatively high demands of then-current PC technology, Windows 1.0 was generally considered too slow to be usable. It wasn’t until Windows 3 that the operating system began to generate significant sales.
.
2013 – AOL shocked a lot of geeks when they announced WinAmp.comwould be shutting down and the software would be no longer available come December 20th.  The next day rumors surfaced that Microsoft was planning to buy it – which didn’t go further than the inital report. The service did not shut down though. On January 14th, 2014 it was announced a Belgian radio website called “Radionomy” had purchased the Nullsoft brand, including WinAmp and Shoutcast.

P I N G ?  P O N G ! (Magnavox Odyssey, 1972).
The Magnavox Odyssey is the first commercial home video game system, invented by Ralph Baer, who started work on it as early as 1967. It was launched in 1972 at the end of which over 100,000 units were sold. The system is very rudimentary, having no CPU, score mechanism, colour or sound.
.
”The exciting casino action of Monte Carlo, the thrills of Wimbledon, the challenge of ski trails – can be duplicated right in your own living room.”

That's it everyone the weekend is over, It's Sunday evening so it's gotta be time for me to ask D.Y.K It Was November 19th 1992 When Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Was Released? Sega released the second game for its top franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog, for the Sega Genesis platform. Genesis was running second to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System with its franchise creations such as Mario and Starfox. Sonic would be the leading character for Sega platforms throughout the 1990s, and would eventually be licensed to other companies once Sega stopped producing it’s own platforms with its Dreamcast system.
.
1993 - Don’t Post Bomb Instructions Online The Ionizer – Otherwise known as Michael Elanky, recieved 28 months in prison for posting bomb-making instructions on his BBS. There have been other instances of this throughout history, but Elansky was a member of the International Information Retrieval Guild, a computer group very much concerned with freedom of speech and freedom of information. Like the group with which he was affiliated, Michael felt strongly about our First Amendment rights.Therefore, he posted on his BBS – called the Warehouse – instructions on making bombs. Michael was arrested back in July 1993 and couldn’t post the $500,000 bail. Therefore he spent 4 months in jail. The instructions were originally written by “Deth Vegetable”.
.
2006 - Nintendo releases the Wii game console to compete with the Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. By forgoing raw computing power for increased player interaction utilizing the innovative motion-sensitive “Wiimote” controller, the Wii defied expectations and became the best-selling seventh-generation game console.
.
2007 - Amazon introduces their Kindle e-book reader. Where other companies had released e-book readers in previous years with limited success, the Kindle’s integration with Amazon’s industry leading book distribution system helped catapult the e-reader into the the mainstream consciousness. The Kindle sold out within five hours of its debut.

Day 3. Everything is soldered to DIY Radio-86RK, originally designed in 1985-1986 in Russia for electronics hobbyists. The board passed OK a power test without microchips in sockets. Next step is fun part. I need to program ROMs to get a font+BIOS and ATMega chip which will convert PS/2 keyboard codes to RK86 key matrix. #radio86rk #homecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #pcb #russiancomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer

Took time out today to take my family of 8 to watch the newest release of Paddington 2. We had to drive 25 miles out of our way to the Plaza Cinema in Dorchester saving us £49 rather than using our local Cineworld Cinema in Yeovil Who wanted to charge almost £80 utter greed. I'm So glad I did as it was a great place to go with very friendly and helpful staff too. .
Anyway enough of that D.Y.K ON November 18th  1970 Bill Gates Started Programming? Microsoft Corp. co-founder and CEO Bill Gates got his start in computer programming at the Lakeside School in Seattle. The school owned some early computers and Gates and his friends spent nearly all their time pushing the machines to their limits. Time on Lakeside and other machines in the Seattle area was costly, however, so the newly formed Lakeside Programmers Group offered Information Sciences, Inc. free programming services on its PDP-10 in return for free time on the computer. The group designed a payroll program for the company.
.
1963 - Bell Telephone offers the first electronic push-button telephones to customers in Carnegie and Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) technology (Touch-Tone) was also introduced on the same day in order to accommodate the new push-button telephones uptown this point it had only been rotary dial.
.
1894 – The first Sunday Comics section is printed by the New York World. 1985 – 91 years later, Bill Watterson syndicates a comic about a boy and his stuffed Tiger. Calvin and Hobbes will bring laughter to millions for the next ten years. It reached through 2,400 newspapers (at it’s height) and spun off 18 books. Bill Watterson ended the comic on December 31st, 1995 and has left it retired since.

Welcome to my page fellow teccie friends. I try to bring you technology from the past to the now. They say knowledge is power so without further ado let's get this show on the road. .
Today is 17th November 2017 However D.Y.K that on November 17th 1929 Herman Hollerith Died?.
.
Herman Hollerith died of a heart attack at age 69. Hollerith's experience before he was 30 at the US Census Bureau and US Patent Office and as instructor in mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology set the stage for inventing the successful card system for the 1890 census.
.
After this achievement, Hollerith set up his Tabulating Machine Co. in 1896. In 1911 it became the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co., which Thomas Watson, Sr. joined in 1914. A decade later it became International Business Machines.
.
2008 - Jerry Yang Steps down as Yahoo! CEO, After battle upon battle between Microsoft, Google and shareholders (including Carl Icahn), Jerry Yang finally announced to all he was stepping down as CEO of Yahoo! The previous days, Steve Ballmer said they are not going forward with any future purchase of Yahoo! Because of this, stock hit it’s lowest share price, $8. That, the failed Google affiliation (due to antitrust issues), and a very despondent group of investors, Jerry felt it best to step back in his roll.
.
That's our lot for tonight. Please join me tomorrow for more.

Back to non-working Russian home computer "Radio-86RK" from 1989. The kit I have for recovery is based on completely DIY computer schematics published in "Radio" magazine in 1986. People assembled it from scratch. There were no same looking home made computer. So, I decided to go the same vintage way and solder my version of Radio-86RK and use it as a lab to recover my 1989 "Elektronika KR-02" factory kit. I found schematics on radio86rk.pbworks.com. It's compacted to mini-ITX pcb and can use ATX power supply + optional ps/2 keyboard controller if I do not want to make my own vintage keyboard. But probably I'll make it.  Also, 8/16 memory chips replaced by one modern SRAM chip. The rest of the computer is the same as it was in 1986. Just finished to solder resistors. #radio86rk #homecomputer #classiccomputer #retrocomputer #pcb #russiancomputer #retrotech #oldcomputer

I don't know if this is old enough to qualify as #retrotech yet but this was the first laptop I ever bought new, for $1,100, back in I think 2006? I was still using it until about 3 years ago when the extra RAM I added died, leaving it with a mere 512MB, not enough to even run a modern web browser. The #Wacom pen that the screen needs to be a touchscreen ia stuck in its holder and it has no hardware for video decoding, so it's pretty much useless at this point, except for memories and maybe mp3s. #convertibletablet #tc4200 #windowsxp

Good evening everyone D.Y.K That it's exactly  113 YES you read it 113 Yrs to the day on 16th November 1904 The Vacuum Tube Was  Invented? 😮😮 John Ambrose Fleming applied for a US patent on what he called the “oscillation valve“, the first example of the vacuum tube. Vacuum tubes would form the basis of electronic technology for nearly 50 years until the development of the transistor. Fleming’s invention has been described as one of the most important developments in the history of electronics.
.
1922 - IBM System/360 hardware designer Gene Amdahl was born in Flandreau, South Dakota. The System/360 marked IBM’s transition from discrete transistors to integrated circuits, as well as its move to a focus on electronic computer systems rather than punch card equipment. Amdahl went on from IBM to found his own company, Amdahl Computer Corp., which was very successful in making the first IBM-compatible mainframe systems.
.
1977 - Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind Debuts. Most of the time, we skip over movie releases, unless it has had a definite impact on the Tech and geek community. That is the case with this movie. Close Encounters of the Third Kind – Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Richard Dreyfuss, and Teri Garr was released to 272 US theaters. It was produced on a budget of US$20 million, amd would gross US $5,379,460 in the opening weekend. .
1982- Steve Jobs writes a letter to McIntosh Labs asking for rights to use “Macintosh” as the brand name of Apple’s still-in-development computer. McIntosh Labs makes high-end stereo equipment, and while Jef Raskin, creator of the Macintosh project, intentionally spelled the name with a letter “a” to differentiate Apple’s computer from McIntosh’s audio products, Apple was denied a trademark because the name was phonetically identical.
