R.I.P. Fry's Electronics.
Fry's closed all locations on Wednesday with no forewarning. It was one of the last places I could still buy electronics components in-person. Need a 7805 regulator for that ailing 2600? How about a few resistors for that AV mod? Replacements for a leaky cap? They had me covered without the wait of an online order.
It was a quirky, hodgepodge type store with a lot of "As seen on TV" products along side computer, electronics and stereo equipment. It shall be missed.
Painting an image I just made 😆Here is a silly little thing. To be clear this is not intended as instructional and is nothing great, it is simply me having some fun with my iPad mini and Apple Pencil, I am still learning the program, the tools and how they all work 😀 I only leaned of the apps ability to record the process and simply wanted to test it, just a proof of concept, I even screwed up accidentally deleting my creation of good old Frankie here but thought a quick little colouring would suffice. I want to get better and comfortable enough to create something and record it from start to finish but in the meantime just wanted to share the fun I am having. 😎
I wanted to provide a quick personal update. I suffered a big heart attack and had open heart surgery on Wednesday last week. I was discharged and returned home yesterday. I’ve missed the I/O community. I hope everyone is well. I am on the road to recovery and doing as well as can be. Life is good. God is good all the time.
The doctor said I should expect 70% recovery by two months time, so it’ll still be a while before I can actively join the fun here, I suspect. I’m hoping that I’ll be feeling well enough to pop in from time to time to check up on this wonderful community. I bought a Turbo Express a while back in anticipation of the scoring challenge but oh well 😭
Live life! Stay strong and safe! ❤️🕹
