As I continue to wrestle with odd laptop behavior, Hughbrocca forwarded this lego gem.
At a great wedding this weekend (just one week after Keith & Hannah’s super bash), I found myself randomly talking to another CS person. It may have not been that random, since I believe the seats, not just tables, were assigned.
Anyway, my favorite mail program from days long past, mm, was reintroduced to me. The distribution section gives you an idea of how old is old … BITNET *and* UUCP addresses are given:
“MM is available by anonymous ftp from columbia.edu (126.96.36.199), in the mm subdirectory. For information, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (Internet), info-mm-request@cunixf (BITNET), or …rutgers!columbia!info-mm-request (UUCP).”
It’s out. The secret closed-source MS code has been released. From an internal IRC channel at the office, check it out here.
At one point, there was a Trash 80 kicking around at school. Then my C=64 showed up. A few Commodore Pet computers were at school (with both kinds of keyboards). And my cousin had a Osbourne at home … it 0\/\/n3D th3 5c3n3.
Anyway, the Germans are keeping the dream alive for old Commodore folks.
