Clicky mechanical keyboard recordings on vinyl? Oh yes, we are living in the future.
New video over on LGR Blerbs of my first time listening to the 2019 hit record, "Mechanical Keyboard Sounds: Recordings of Bespoke and Customized Mechanical Keyboards" by Taeha Types and Trunk Records. CLICKITY-CLICK-CLACK-CLICKK

Here's a quickly-made video detailing the updates I've made to the recent Windows 98 PC build. SCSI cable extended, HDD indicator soldered in, DVD-ROM drive added, case fan connected, expansion cards rearranged to allow a little more breathing room. Satisfying stuff!
And yep, this is on a new channel I'm calling LGR Blerbs. Just a spot for unscripted updates and random things like this that don't merit a full video on LGR but are too large for something like Twitter.

Unfortunately no LGR video today due to my ongoing sickness, my apologies! On the road towards healing up though so if all goes well things should return to normal next week 👍
Quick announcement: I'll be attending Vintage Computer Festival Midwest this year!
Not as an exhibitor or anything, just gonna be wandering the area and hanging out September 14-15. Say hi if you're there! I may or may not have some LGR Things with me too, heh.
Admission is free, too! More info for the curious:

It's April, and that means LGR Edutainment Month begins on Friday!
Got a few fascinating titles to cover this year. One puzzle platformer, one typing tutor, and one... algebra thing.

Happy Christmas Eve! Hope y'all have a relaxing one. And to those working in emergency services, food, retail, and other jobs where your presence is deemed necessary: thank you.
I planned to have the final LGR holiday video out today but my main retro capture PC dying last week really quashed productivity. Got it fixed though, so hopefully things will be back on track soon.

Me: Yay I've got a video almost done for Monday! Don't fail me now, computer!
..oh. So yeah, as a result Friday's video won't be the planned game review. That'll be next week if I can get things repaired in time.
I've got a bunch of donations from you lovely folks though, so expect an unboxing Friday instead 😀
