    I bought an old RCA 16mm projector while working at a comicon. Also got myself some old Daffy Duck and Popeye cartoons. The guy I bought all of these from showed me how to load the film into the projector and play it/rewind it.

    There's something about the sound of film going through the projector. I've never got to hear it before this!

    Nice. I have an 8mm projector that works fine otherwise but makes an awful grinding noise. I'm gonna have to open it up and lubricate it or something one of these days.

    I have a GTX560. It's an antique.

    Also, a 32 year old wife.

    I hear the value on those go down substantially over time, you should sell now

    It's an expensive upgrade. It costs half your shit.

    Only if you don't convincingly frame the GTX560 for murder and leave it in shame

    I wanted to go antiquing tomorrow!

    Then I remembered I have no functioning credit card so can't rent a car.
    I can go to the three antique stores down the road but it feels less adventurous.

    Indeed!

    I kind of don't care if it works or not, they're neat to look at and maybe would be a nifty tinkering project if I could find one on the cheap

    Annie has an old Polaroid that I'll maybe take a pic of later. I'm trying to get the energy to clean the apartment right now. It's cool but it seems hard to use well.

    I need to figure out a good solution for scanning the prints before they fade out too much.

    a few months back if I had had 400 bucks and a way to transport it I could have gotten that sniper arcade game, the one with the little screen in the scope?

    Silent Scope. The first time I played the original back in the day, I beat it on one credit. Thanks, Counter-Strike.

    I heard usagi collects antique forumers.

    I don't really collect anything old, but I do watch American pickers which totally counts I'm sure.

    This is my grandfather's pocket knife though, which was made at the world's first steel factory.

    Enthusiast then.

    Cause I mean, if you had only one muscle car you could still describe yourself as a muscle car enthusiast.

    I have a habit of collecting old or "underpowered" computers intending to use them some day. I have like 3 Pentium II systems, a Pentium III system, 2 Pentium 4 systems, a RaspberryPi, and a small collection of old parts. I don't really know what I intend to do with any of them other than the Pi.

    Overclock them all to the point you can use them to cook a fancy dinner.
