there is literally only one point release of macos that will load on it and i had to do a LOT of digging to get a copy. i also had to replace the network card but 100% worth it

notes about addresses when filling out your form:

non-us participants: please supply your real name; if you have to pay duty on your incoming gift or otherwise deal with customs you may have a hard time if you don't have an id that matches the name on the box.
us participants: please also supply a real name. the post office has updated their self serve kiosks to now demand that the sender type in the full name and address of the sender and recipient; i know some post offices will reject mail that has a name not matching the address so unless you know your post office dgaf don't just put your username down.

i've been using nearly the same post every year and every year it's awesome so I'm gonna keep it up

hi im achmed jones, i touch computers and hearts. i like many things, including:

* the aesthetic and music surrounding vaporwave, future funk, and related genres
* ham radio stuff
* i play guitar (poorly) and make beeps and boops in ableton. it's a lot of fun
* i like looking at stars and planets with my telescope
* spicy food and also non-spicy food (Iím always stoked to try whatever local foods, condiments, etc you might want to throw at me)
* beer and bourbon and red wine
* renaissance fairs and similar
* funny computer and the ti-99/4a
* sci fi and fantasy stuff in general
* fully automated luxury gay space communism
* Iím buddhist and reasonably serious about it; I probably have all the literature Iím after, but if you have a local monastery or nunnery that sells, uh stuff I guess, thatíd be rad?

little jones will be 7 soon. ms jones has general nerd interests (sci fi, fantasy, especially star trek) and loves classic rock. poodle jones turns 2 tomorrow.

oh yeah i should probably post some poo poo like that

i have no loving idea what i like because i have a weird brain or something. idfk. i will keep this post open for a while and try to write poo poo that comes to mind but uhhh just in case

idk what size i am in MURICAN shirts but heres my measurements
chest 43cm (16.9")
shoulder 41cm (16.1")
center back 62cm (24.4")

im british so no knives or anything like that, my favourite anime is serial experiments lain, i hate going outside (lol), here's my last.fm
i've got a NAS with two 4TB drives that ive been wanting to upgrade to bigger ones but lol expensive

whatever you put into the goog form gets forwarded to your santa so you don't have to post it here too unless you just want to.

in previous years people have preferred the thread to the form i think

it's more fun this way imo. after all nobody's gonna put "i want a pile of chips" in their form, but they might make a joke about it itt

and that's how i sent my santee a case of (iirc) zapps chips one year
