Just in case someone needs..
Many families (like mine) do have family members with disabilities.. we've each been working in isolation (example: github.com/nmenon/masimo-datac github.com/nmenon/3DPrints thingiverse.com/nmenon/designs) -> However, there is a maker community around this: ATMakers (atmakers.org/) , and a facebook page facebook.com/groups/ATMakers. This is where families and makers are connecting and doing lots of technical solutions sharing, 3d-printing, coding, etc.

The "Ultimate" tag might be a bit much, but it's at least closer to a usable ARM workstation!

Solidrun's Clearfog NXP LX2160A based mini-ITX board with 16 Cortex-A72 cores is closer to being a real thing you can buy for $500-750.

Strong Bad on Birdsite: For April Fool's day this year, I wish Bubs would feed all my sbemails into his discount neural network and see what kinda insane, eyeball-covered gold it would spit out."

Me: as it turns out, i have access to a discount neural net

So, @bradfa pointed out elsewhere some details of the SolidRun aarch64 workstation are public. Neat! Even some preliminary performance numbers. Not bad! Now let me just rip on Intel instead for a moment. My current workstation is a refurb'ed Dell with with dual Xeon E5-2670. And grabbing cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel OH MY GOURD MY 7 YEAR OLD CPU BEATS THE 1 YEAR OLD ONE.

Since it's April Fools, I did want to share my favorite prank. Back in 7th grade my best friend and I broke out into The Spanish Inquisition sketch in the middle of social studies. The teacher was amused enough to let us (me) get to amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as fear, surprise... :)

modern programming is less about not reinventing the wheel and more about using a sports car to move firewood across the yard

Non-obvious use of duct tape -and-one, mark on your drill-bit how deep the pilot hole goes.
Related, screen door re-hung, need to sand a few spots down to make things go smoother. The joys of a house old enough to laugh at such quaint notions as "square" and "level".

The "not doing April Fools" thing? Fully endorse and agree.
