Easy, download DosBox!

My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

I have a very old computer at my grandmother's house (with 'very old' I really mean very old). I think I will copy Rod and paste it on a diskette and then I will bring the diskette to my old computer. The operational system of this computer is Windows 95 actually.

My father has a computer from the age of Dos and 'Windows 3.1'.
THAT is old ;)


This link is dead. It's only still here because, err... yknow, it's some sort of... memorial.

Then this computer is unique. There aren't many of these computers in these days.

Yep, dad told me that his parents bought that computer when he was about my age. And it still works!

My father's comp STILL works! He takes lotsa care of it. Same goes for his old toys: They're still 100% as new.
