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.

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

Happy Yosmas Ciaphas! I am somewhat _worried_ that you actually have a use for that adapter - if you also manage to do something productive with the laser pointer I'll be _worried_.

holy poo poo, false negative blew up my life with weapons-level holiday cheer. i wasn't able to take pictures of everything, but check out the awesome decorations on the boxes! there's:

* a bunch of great stuff to eat - adorable hot chocolate reindeer kits, spicy honey (holy cow it's really good),and a nice mustardy dipping sauce called "awesome sauce" that lives up to its name. we didn't get a chance to have the hot chocolate tonight, but will definitely do it tomorrow!

* a crystal-growing kit to do with Little Jones

* some fancy soap. it is cedar and rosemary goat's milk soap and smells amazing. it isn't clear if there is an intended recipient, so ms jones and i will rassle for it

* a NESDR Smart v5. This is a very solid software defined radio dongle that I am very happy to have. it came with a huge array of adapters and jumpers, a magnetic antenna base, three antennas, and the most adorable little balun you've ever seen

so that's a super solid and very thoughtful pile of gifts! but then there's ALSO a Ham It Up upconverter. this thing basically adds 125mhz to incoming signals and delivers superior performance below 30mhz compared to dongles' built-in direct sampling capabilities. and while i do love the wild world of VHF and UHF, signals below 30mhz are my favorites. this set is a complete setup for a rad SDR station and I am _freaking stoked_ to play with it! i've poked at it a little with OpenWebRX and it's great so far!





Thank you False Negative! You've made the Jones family's yosmas dreams come true ❤️




this dog was not included in the package, but he wanted to be part of the festivities:
