Mail the Finger

Dear Sean,

I read your article on Goat Attack, and thought you might be interested in covering our new startup, Mail the Finger. 

Mail the Finger sends out awesome foamboard middle fingers specially crafted from the highest quality foamboard for all your middle finger delivering needs. Basically, we’re a Fingers as a Service (FaaS) business, and we take ourselves a little too seriously for a business that shouldn’t. 

Do check out our newly launched website – – and our Instagram profile –


Do let me know if you’re interested in covering us and I’ll send you our digital press kit. 



Best Regards,




Mail the Finger.


Surfing the Internet… from my TRS-80 Model 100 | Ars Technica

Mobility redefined: TRS-80 Model 100, Raspberry Pi B, a serial cable, a USB-to-serial converter, and a swag backup battery to power the Pi. Onscreen, I’m on Google’s home page with Lynx.

The true test of a man’s patience is crimping pins onto the end of a cable that leads to building a custom serial cable—especially if it’s the first time you’ve even handled a serial cable in a decade. So as I searched under my desk, using my phone for a flashlight, I wondered whether I had finally found the IT project that would send me over the edge. On a recent day, I set out to turn my recently acquired vintage Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 100 computer into a working Internet terminal. And at this moment, I crawled on the floor looking for a DB-25 connector’s little gold pin that I had dropped for the sixth—or maybe sixteenth—time.

Thankfully, I underestimated my patience/techno-masochism/insanity. Only a week later, I successfully logged in to Ars’ editorial IRC channel from the Model 100. And seeing as this machine first saw the market in 1983, it took a substantial amount of help: a Raspberry Pi, a little bit of BASIC code, and a hidden file from the website of a certain Eric S. Raymond.
