Move complete!

Classic computers unpacked but moved to water resistant crates. Setting them up is a snowed-in-day project. All boxes collapsed down and most are already given away. I still have a few more if anyone needs them.

Move complete.

Thank you for the thoughts, prayers, and help!

Moving and cat weightlifting

Moving (really, packing up to move) is a great example of needing to break up an enormous problem into many achievable small steps.

It is also excellent weight-training for those of us with cats.

Today alone I have had to lift my three cats out of boxes a couple dozen times 🙂 My phone has informed me I exceeded my workout goal by 4X today! That notification is very welcome since half of the day was a sit-down meeting!

Have a great week and keep safe!

RIP, Professor Corbató

Sadly, Professor Fernando Corbató (Corby) has passed. I am waiting for a non-paywalled article to appear before linking anything.

Corby believed in computing as a multi-user “information utility” and his work inspired many to greatly improve computing technology from the 1960’s onward. Much of what we use today ties back to his team’s work.

Rest In Peace.

Peloton Bike + Powerbeats Pro = awesome!

A Peloton ride with Powerbeats Pro to listen to the music and the trainer = awesome. Yes, they are overpriced for their audio quality, but unlike most earbuds, they do not fall out of my wacky shaped ears! Thank you to the Apple Store for getting them in for me last month and to the Peloton Store in Troy for the awesome support and encouragement!

Dungeons and Desktops: The History of Computer Role-Playing Games 2e

Dungeons and Desktops: The History of Computer Role-Playing Games 2e by Matt Barton and Shane Stacks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is a fantastic history of computer based role playing games by two very experienced authors! I played many of these games with my family when they were “new”, and the write up of them in this book has been very enjoyable!

This is a textbook-quality look at computer gaming history.

The quality of the book itself is also exceptional (from CRC Press) with archival quality paper, a great binding, and a humorous cover.
