I hooked my Amiga 4000 up to a Raspberry pi so I can transfer files between it and the real world more easily. Then I wrote a blog post about it.

Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.
Hey, I just like it here, you know?
