Carnival of the OFs

I'm 60 today. Whoopee. Especially when you consider the alternatives.

I first got involved in the closest relative of blogging when I was involved in FIDO net. Around '80 or so I think. It actually started earlier when I worked with Ward Christiansen and Randy Seuss on the World's First BBS. They did all the hard work. I just supplied them with an I/O board. And a few cheats to make it work for their application.

At the time I couldn't see their point.

I actually got my hands on an Altair 8080 in April of '75. It belonged to a friend of mine, Jim Bunch.

By the next year I had built an Imsai and was off to the races.

I'm looking forward to the future and a Bush win.

We shall see.
