My friend Jon Esparza (@jonscrazytweets) discovered a rare Commodore SX-64 while going through his late father’s storage unit. Knowing that I was a retro computer enthusiast, he gave me a call to see if I was interested in doing something with it. So of course I took a road trip to south San Diego to see this “Commodore laptop” in person (and get some bomb tacos)! Jon was kind enough to let me take this Commodore SX-64 off his hands and see if I could get it in any better shape than it’s currently in. This is going to be a rough Commodore restoration, so be sure to stay tuned for the next installment!

To celebrate the union of my “little brother” Eric, The Barbie and I took the doggos on a little weekend trip to the southern tip of Silicon Valley and the wine country town of Morgan Hill, California. Naturally, we found a few vintners to sample and surprisingly many of them were quite dog friendly!

Singapore is notorious for its liberal use of corporal punishment for minor infractions. In 1994, American Michael Fay was sentenced to 6 lashes for petty theft and vandalism. This is not his story.
