The Luna Weyr was imagined as a sort of outpost on the information highway; a place to congeal those thoughts and artefacts which I deem interesting, important, or simply worth sharing and remembering. It is a little less formal and a little more spiritual as far as websites go, perhaps even being reminiscent of the early internet (and that’s a very big part of what I’m hoping to do here is go back to that time and place somehow).
My interested are pretty varied, and I won’t share everything about all of them here. I’ll be keeping it to the things I think deserve a little chance to be seen.
Most importantly, I hope to share about my interest in vintage computing; it is a broad subject but effectively you might correctly guess that I enjoy old hardware, software, networking, ways of doing things, and the experience which these things came together to provide to their users in days past. There is a sort of “time-capsule” specialness about the old computer thing.
I love electronics design and reverse engineering. I would like to share things I create, repair, restore, or otherwise find interesting. It might even be possible that I share something useful to others!
Music is very important and I try to take time to create it now and then. I may share compositions and arrangements I’ve come up with. I play the piano, but enjoy dabbling with other instruments or creating my own.
Art, whether graphic or written, may wind up being shared here. This is kind of open-ended, we’ll see where it goes.
For now, I introduce myself as Wings. Yup, I’m a regular human being, but I’ll play the role of the encouraging and helpful indigo dragon named Wings upon which some of my art, stories, and songs are based. Wings might not take much part in the technical matters, but he’s important and may appear here!
