All caps, current events, somewhat-joking (but I still want a serious answer) 

(The answers are, maybe? and about $50/month in my area, not including connection fees)

No _you've_ stayed up past your bedtime looking through telco tariff documents to see if you can still get an ISDN line and how much it would cost

Yeah I'm a gamer girl…I store my GameCube controller with my estrogen

@natalie Possibly, but it seemed too loud for it to be reminded me of the Evan Doorbell tape on permanent signal recordings, where on sxs they just come in right over the dial tone. But I'd only been on the line for a second or two, so it doesn't make sense that it would be that either. I was wondering if someone at the switch had plugged into my line, which is why I just hung up; I didn't want to explain myself but I also didn't want to ignore them

@natalie Okay, this was weird....I called and got the recording, and when I called the access number back to hear the audichron, someone said "operator intercept" through the dial tone before I could dial its number. I just hung up after that lol

@lumina It's Latin for "grant us peace," part of a prayer that's said or sung during Mass after the Communion prayer:
"Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on us.
"Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on us.
"Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world. Grant us peace."
I believe it appears in a few other prayers as well.

I was not feeling well last night…

@XerTheSquirrel Oh, I didn't think of the canned air! I guess that would be enough force to blow out whatever's left. Thanks!

Anyone know how best to clean out a USB-C connector? I've dropped my phone into a bowl of queso =/

Spent the last half-hour scraping it out as much as I could but I'm not satisfied enough with that to try to plug it in

@1200bps I was fixing to say, "Man of Constant Sorrow" just wouldn't feel the same

@1200bps Ohhhhhhhhh my gosh I had him confused with Dan Tyminski lmaooooo

The retro news nobody is talking about: the SC-55 sample ROMs were dumped, decompressed and descrambled. Someone also extracted and repacked the samples into a Soundfont(!)

@Mycroft That's fine, I liked what I did see on your timeline too :3

@Mycroft I did set it back to 450 MHz and run the same program and got it to lock up again, but it took longer and no BSOD this time. So idk lol

I do remember it crashing/freezing sometimes when it was our main PC, too, but we didn't really think anything of it. It wasn't unusable and as far as we knew that was just how computers were. Going back from the Linux world now after so long though really makes it obvious though!

@Mycroft I don't think so. It's got a very thorough CMOS setup. The motherboard is an Abit BH6 board, the same one that anandtech apparently used in their test system when reviewing the 300A

@Mycroft Maybe that's the issue then, the old installation was 98fe

This machine does have a no-name winmodem, but it's seldom-used. Very glad I tracked down the driver CD in storage, because the drivers were not anywhere on the Internet at all that I could find until I put them there
