We are gathered at The Atrium tomorrow to bid farewell to BIOS after 45 years of servicing all the basic ins and outs that you've come to take for granted.

Come to 875 Third Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) as we present BIOS with a golden pocketwatch...

(Who are we kidding? It's just a CR-2032 to power its RTC until it too drops dead from digital deprecation!)

Take 🅔, 🅜, or ➏ to Lexington Av-53 Street Station; M101, M102, or M103 bus.

Re: the sudden closure of @HackerRadioShow home WBAI, we have a statement posted at 2600.com/content/lockout-wbai- .

We've arranged a live "Off the Hook" for 7-9 PM this Wednesday the 9th, at the Brooklyn Commons Cafe downstairs from the station. Please spread the word and, if you are in geographic range, PLEASE come join us; a show of numbers is pretty critical.

388 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217

And please show the cafe some support. They're WBAI's landlord as well, and have also been thrown into peril by the station's closure.

We are working behind the scenes to figure out our next moves, and will talk about it at the event. We're also working on getting it recorded and streamed, we'll keep you posted.

Thanks, everyone. As you can imagine this is pretty daunting, but I'm keeping the faith that this isn't the last you'll hear of @HackerRadioShow.
