Comment Re:Holy Blinking Cursor, Batman! (Score 1) 213

Yeah, my old Commodore 64 had a blinking cursor, and it somehow managed that remarkable feat with an 8-bit 6510 CPU running at 1MHz!!!

...though, to be fair, keyboard input on those old 8-bitters was usually a busy loop of some sort (looks like /.'s gonna thwart my attempt at indenting the following):

BIT $C010

That's 100% CPU usage right there, though without a need to share it with other processes (because there were no other processes), the concept is somewhat meaningless in this context.

Yep, Amazon has a book I want - typically ships in 1 or 2 weeks.

Ebay has it for the same exact price and I ordered it last night and it's on the way. Ebay also had a better selection of Jeep Roofs, and my new one is at home waiting for a warm day for me to replace my old one.

As to the key fob versus text? they can't spam your keyfob.

I'm the same. When I'm out riding on my bile, I just go a hundred or so miles in no particular pattern, when I use the gps on for the return, I watch the map.

I can still re-create my memorable rides without sat nav. But if I had to describe where the blueberry farm in Indiana is that I ride to, listening to me telling you that turning left at the funny farm house, going to the long drive past another farm, watch for the dukes of hazard bridge, cross that and follow the signs won't help you.
