By the way, that mysterious package from Sweden... it turns out it was from the USA, a purchase I recently made. No idea why it reached Spain via Sweden. It looks counterintuitive.
@morrick
@Streakmachine It's a mystery, especially because I recently moved and very few people know my new address. We'll see tomorrow...
@morrick
In my mailbox there was a notice to retrieve a small package. It says it comes from... Sweden. Do I know someone here who sent a surprise?
@morrick
@Streakmachine I have a TEAC cassette deck I rescued from a graphic studio, and I still have my old AIWA Walkman around, thankfully :-) @streakmachine @bazbt3 @blumenkraft @33MHz
@morrick
@bazbt3 You're welcome! @Streakmachine @blumenkraft
@morrick
@Streakmachine I'm another! So I guess we're more than three :-)


I still listen to cassette tapes and records of course!

@morrick
@doctorlinguist Thanks. I'd love to repurpose one of those keyboard for my typing needs, but damn those interfaces and obscure connectors!
@morrick
Anyone knows which interface was used to connect keyboards to late 1980s-early 1990s Qume (and similar) terminals? RS-232? Thanks in advance.

@thedan84 I told him something like "Let's see which of our respective jobs lasts longer." (At the time, he was in a 'multimedia agency', primarily designing Flash web sites, heheh)
@morrick
@thedan84 I know the feeling. Once a client told me that doing the freelance translator wasn't even "a real job".
@morrick
@33MHz Thank you for reading and commenting! I'm sorry I didn't see your reply before — my iPhone's battery was dying :-)

@doctorlinguist Whoa! @sevan
@morrick
@doctorlinguist Thank you so much for taking the time to look into this!
@morrick
@jws You're right, and reminding me of things I should know but forgot over time!

Update 3: It works under Mac OS 8.1 too!
@morrick
@doctorlinguist Here's your link between computers and the medical profession: hardware undertaker! ;-) // @sevan
@morrick
@jws Indeed! So happy I found this solution. :-)
@morrick
@doctorlinguist I didn't say anything about this issue before because I just assumed it was totally Dropbox's fault :-)
