Real talent is fastening a small spot lamp on a wall with two big fuckoff screws in such a way that it still wobbles. I'm awestruck by the contractor's bold defiance of societal norms by eschewing wall plugs.

Re: Thoughts for ships

When and why did computers stop having that neat outlet on the PSU for the monitor? Almost every computer had it around the millenium, probably because it frees up a socket, so there must be some drawback that resulted in its disappearance but I'm not seeing it.
