Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    This video would have been more accurate had they been typing on an IBM Model M keyboard and not the piece of crap they were using. =)

    It would have been better if it were a Commodore64 using Procomm Plus or some other term program
