there's a bunch of ones and zeros who get together and be friends in all kinds of conglomerations.

And then they get sent out in packets through wires and sometimes not even wires so I guess with lasers!

I'm going to order a raspberry pi and try to set up a retro gaming console. Wish me luck, please.
