Future Past


The December 1977 issue of Byte magazine featured an illustration of the Enterprise (ST: TOS) crew visiting a museum and looking at an exhibit of a 20th century computer enthusiast seated at the DecWriter console of his S-100 computer system, evidently trying to key-in or debug a program from a bound book.  The book bears a striking resemblance to a later reprint of the classic 1973 “BASIC Computer Games” by David Ahl.  A somewhat self-referential paradox is that one of the longer and more complex games published in the book is titled “Super Star Trek.”

Changes at Paleoferrosaurus

Hand-coded HTML was getting fairly tedious to write and maintain, so in the spirit of 1995, I’ve switched to the WordPress content management system for this website.  Right now, it’s purely an experiment — I might switch back to a traditional home-page someday.  Most of the existing content will be preserved, but it might take me some time to migrate everything over to the new system.  In the meantime, wish me luck in keeping this old-school personal web-page alive!
