LEGO Shop At Home Scans: 95-99

A while back, I was trying to find a specific Lego catalog that I’d looked at as a kid. However, when I tried to find the specific one I was looking for, I realized that very few of these catalogs from the 90s had been immortalized by the internet. However, many of them where on sale for reasonable prices (and Sabrina wanted a Scanner for old family Photos anyway) so I got to work.

The raw files are here on my archive.org account, if you find my (largely imagemagick-powered) PDFing of the files inadequate. If the PDFs appear small just zoom in, they’re about as high-res as they can be without creating artifacts on the screens I tried. I plan on also scanning the ones that I personally saved when I was a kid, and will post those here too.

And the specific catalog I was looking for? Turns out it was Holiday 1997. Twenty one years ago. The page I was looking for in particular turns out to be this one.


In Appreciation: Termux

I’ve been playing with Termux quite a bit in the last couple of days. Being able to do development-any development-while standing on the train is an awesome feeling. I think the site undersells what it is-it’s your compiler in your pocket. It’s ssh in your pocket. I’m redoing my website on my phone (the mobile experience is crap at the moment) by editing the sources in vim, then hosting it locally with Python.
