My Search for a Thinking Machines CM-1 or CM-2

I have a Cray-2 showing up at our Carriage House in the next few weeks. It’ll be a permanent fixture there and, while it’s not functional, it’ll be fun to have around. I’m now on a quest to find a Thinking Machines CM-1 or CM-2. Every supercomputer needs a friend after all. If you know…

Blade Runner 2049: Dystopia With a Happy Ending – Maybe

Blade Runner 2049 is still in the theaters and has a rotten tomatoes score of 88%. While long, it’s definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
