Handy distractions

Since I am in ‘work-avoidance’ mode today, here’s some links to some total Net classics (geek factor 10)
The Register: Could Bill Gates write code?
Reverse Engineering of Altair Basic
The Story of Mel, a Real Programmer
The World’s most popular OS? Not Windows, but TRON
Ed, man! !man ed (the editor for l33t d00dz)
Captain Ledford: Coolest K5 Diary Ever
The Vortex of Kibology (a true net.legend)
These sites are just as great for avoiding work as they ever were, when I was a net n00b in the Auckland Uni Maths Lab, in the nineties 🙂
