Help! I fell into MSX rabbit hole and can't get out :glenda:

I still can't get over the fact that we embraced the boring beige boxes for our computing needs over the industrial design that was happening with the MSX platform. Even the cheaper models had STYLE that still looks sleek today.

It's a shame the platform never really took off much outside of Japan.

"Oh clippy I love you" (uttered with genuine affection).

I recently got a used bike trailer and I have been transporting fire wood, groceries and even children! The original plastic box was practical but dead ugly, so I built a wooden frame and now the trailer is useful and handsome all at once!

Went out for a quick sunset walk after a busy day and bumped into my new neighbour who always smiles at me so fully and openly when we pass. She stopped to say hi and introduce herself. That was really nice and refreshing.

Today, while observing a golden orb-weaver spider on her web, I heard the sound of fangs piercing the exoskeleton of a captured insect.

I had not previously imagined it was possible to hear such a thing.

Definitely my favourite nonhumyn observation moment of recent days.
