    So there's this old computer repair place in Texas which has been closed for some time, but essentially all of the space they had is completely full to the ceiling of old computer hardware and software, not just popular PC era Dells and eMachines but going back to IBM XT, Sun Microsystems, Wang, 80's, 70's, etc, many new-in-box, full cases of unsold products, entire pallets still wrapped, items still factory sealed and ready for sale at your local shopping mall computer store.. The backstory to how our protagonist got to access the store is interesting enough (and starting at 11:22 includes a snippet of the original Tetris played on the corresponding original Russian PC, and a tour of a 5,000 sq ft private arcade which is arcade-heaven jaw-dropping in itself,) but if you want to see the store itself skip to 13:44 - if you have any interest at all of older computers or computing history, prepare for grand vistas and great canyons of items not even eBay thought existed anymore..

    Wow. I recognized an old GVG desktop video switcher in that tour. Good times.

    Folks at the local makerspace are quite excited given that it's local to DFW residents.

    EDIT: Said makerspace (Dallas Maker Space) gets a brief mention around 11:15. I know the owner of the period-appropriate Tetris hardware.

    This place looks like the PC hardware version of another warehouse nearby DMS that was full of electronics components from a long-defunct electronics testing business.

    Today, for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon mission launch, CBS is re-airing the entirety of the news broadcast of the event from July 16, 1969, in realtime, commercials and all:

    Computer for Apollo, 1965. A very thorough and straightforward documentary on how Apollo's computer is being made, showing you the actual step-by-step assembly process, theory, testing, and application. The piece isn't dumbed down or sped through in the least; some terms and concepts are simplified, but you actually get a very solid working knowledge on how the computer is built from scratch, how individual components form logic gates through sheer quantity and complexity of wiring.

    Genuinely fascinating.... Unfortunately that rather interesting channel on YT only has one other video on there.

    The beauty and the madness of bullet time; exploding flammable gas-filled soap bubbles at 100,000 frames per second and viewing in three dimensions at 100,000 miles per hour:

    So it turns out that the old hand-crank concept for keeping a flashlight lit, is actually very old....

    Bullet time over-RPM-exploding CDs and an LP; a great demonstration of how dangerous this actually is:

    I've seen a few of these and in every case, the CD starts to flex weirdly just before it shatters. It's as if some sort of standing shock wave builds up just before it gives out.

    They stack two CDs together the second time, which removes the flexing but makes it take longer..
