Journal Journal: Best simple SID to USB connection? 2

That may not be a good way to describe it but... I have a C64 I never use and I think I shall desolder its SID before consigning it to recycling since they are now officially hard to come by. What can I put it on that will let me use it efficiently?

Among the worst are Japan and Spain, but most industrialized nations have birth rates below 2.1.

Japan needs a low birth rate right now. They have massive suicide and make-work employment. I've never understood why a crowded country like that would want to keep their birth rate up. Let it slack for a while and take some of the pressure off.

The US is a huge country with lots of empty areas that has great air quality.

[citation needed]

I live in the county in the USA which allegedly has the best air quality in the country. The area is volcanic which means more soil radioactives and it contains a shitload of dirt roads which means more soil in your lungs. And the fires, oh my lord the fires.

So, where are these empty areas with great air quality? And why do you think they're relevant given that they're empty?

I would think a superior solution to a fixed bunker would be some kind of specialized boat designed for long endurance.

Obviously what you want is a nuclear submarine. But what would probably be adequate is just any small submarine to use as a taxi, and a sub-aquatic "bunker". Nobody will be able to get to you there.

USB boot is possible on RPi, but it's kind of a pain to get working as it is not compatible with every USB storage device.

Is this the case on the new Pis, or just on old ones? Every time I ask if the Pi foundation has got USB right on the newest Pi I get downmodded, even though they have fucked up USB again and again. The original Pi's USB craters under load and yes, compatibility is piss poor.

Do the new Raspberry Pis have working USB? Or is it unreliable shit just like the first Pis? Let's see how quick this comment gets downmodded by the Pi Police for asking really a quite important question.
