I would like to find computer part co-ops similar to the bicycle co-ops that I patronize around town.

My obsession with collecting and maintaining old computers and consoles has become detrimental to my modern computing environment.

I've been using a flip-phone for three months now. The only software I really would like to use are Signal and OpenStreetMap. However, this device has some wickedly-rad MIDI instruments.

2. mumble
3. weed
