    Looks more like a 32K ring to me.

    Nerdcore bling.

    What says “Bling” better than lead poisioning, Mister Smartguy?

  4. GoldMatenes says:

    I would like to know about the possibility of a 64k gold ring.

  5. Xopher says:

    Silly and geeky.

    Silly is a minus. Geeky is a plus.

    (Please note: I consider almost all bling silly.)

    In the continuing absence of a comment recommendation system on BB, here’s a written one for #1.

    Oh, they have 64k rings, but all the fingers are 32.. Just wait ’til Moore’s starts affecting body parts.

    I consider all bling silly, and I have the suffix “izzle” in my name.

    Techie jewelry started many decades ago at EIMAC. They gifted folks with one of their mini tubes mounted to a tie clip.
    Once upon a time vacuum tube volt meters had hot dog like probes that felt warm. Inside was a tube that was responsible for the high input impedance.

    I have a set of Eimac jewelry. The tie bar has a little vacuum diode type 2-01C soldered on to it, and each cuff link is made from the same tube type. The box is printed in Eimac colors and design, and says “TIODE AND CUFFTRONS”.

    imho they chose the wrong part. There really is nothing special about a plastic case 24 pin DIP memory rom.There is really nothing to link it specifically to an atari 2600 as this (like other) parts was used widely in electronics.

    @11, you wouldn’t be so cavalier if your childhood’s most valued possession was an Atari 2600 and your dad knew this guy who worked for Activision and was able to supply me with raw chips just like these (except not gold) that I could insert into a case-less Atari cartridge that I could then very carefully insert into my 2600 using a tiny flathead screwdriver to open the slot and play those Activision games until the web between my thumb and forefinger was blistered all to hell and it was all free, no charge, because I was a pre-teen software pirate, so bittorrent eat your heart out. Sigh. Life is not as simple as it once was, but the effervescent joy of the run-on sentence lives on.

    Where can I buy this. I want to get it as a birthday gift for my boyfriend.

    two dual-core’s together for a server/brass knuckles feature

  16. Modusoperandi says:

    Instead of gold, shouldn’t it have a little bit of copper and great gobs of lead solder?

    ..a little bit of copper and great gobs of lead solder?

    Hmm.. I think you’re missing the whole “bling” thing there, Modus..

    Are they working on a dual-core ring for the poweruser market?
