# New computer room, Bangkok
My flatmate moved out, so I have reclaimed his room. This is now
where I'll have all my retro computers and video game systems setup.
I'm in here now, typing this post, so the move-in has been
successful so far!
I have a small desk here with an Amiga 1200 and a Libretto 100CT,
each with their respective monitors. On the floor is a switch, a
Wi-Fi extender (which works as an ethernet-wifi bridge) and a small
cardboard box with a Raspberry Pi which I use as a file server for
both computers. I'm typing this up on the libretto, connected via
the Raspberry Pi to the server which hosts this gopherhole.
In the other corner I have CRT TV, a couple of 8-bit computers and
some video game systems. Hopefully I'll use them more often now that
I have everything readily setup.
In other news, I stayed in Bangkok for two weeks for my brother's
wedding. There are some huge electronics malls there, and I found a
bunch of weird stuff I didn't know I needed: a barcode reader (works
like a HID device), a cassette-to-mini-TRS adapter and a lightning
to USB adapter which I've tried so far with a keyboard.
The wedding was cool. Not inside Bangkok but a village some low 100s
of kilometers outside, so for the wedding we stayed in a conference
hotel which seemed to have no other guests for two days. That was
probably the most enjoyable and relaxing part of our stay. I had
some loud conversations with a bunch of asiatic koels! Can't get
their song out of my head.
Didn't catch dengue fever, no corona virus (which *was* a concern,
given that a lot of Chinese travel to Bangkok for the lunar new
year) and my brother got married, so all in all a great trip.
