In the 90s there was an indie internet project called Hyperreal¹ that revolved around (and was quite essential to) the rave scene – providing web hosting and running a bunch of regional and topical mailing lists. It was how a lot of stuff was organized and discussed back then.

@cmos4040 Yes papi! Freestylee!

(and if you do a set, can you try to record it?)

why on earth? well, as convenient as music streaming and electronic music libraries are, stacks of heterogenous artworks and edge labels are a much better platform for navigation, selection and appreciation- at a certain scale. larger scales than just the stuff you care about and you get a storage issue.

Does anyone know where I might be able to buy a micro-usb cable with an in-line power switch?
