I had a friend whose company was "Lasser, Stern, Kinder and Company" - His last name was Lasser. Stern was his wife's maiden name. Kinder is kids in German.....

Great demo, but that guy really shouldn't have a ponytail.

I had a gig doing Clipper programming back in the day for a company that was a middle man for nuts, bolts and screws.  Not sure if it was DBase II before they moved to Pervasive on the Novell server or not.

Heh. I've been logging in to computers as 'ajc' for about 35 years but I never worked for Bell Labs. Respect the unsung heroes!

I just use my callsign in most cases. I think the shortest user name I ever had was "saf2".

And there might just be some merit to having a username (and by extension, email address) that people aren't just going to be able to guess. If they want to find you they can look in the !@##$^%&^*^%#$@ directory.

I was 'ajc' *everywhere* from the early 1980's until 2001, when I took a job with some directory nazis who insisted on first initial last name convention.

Why would you want to be the American Jewish Congress?

No, I want to be the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Although I think the American Jewish Congress is a customer in one of our data centers.  When I walk past the rack that says "AJC" I wonder why I don't see any of my stuff in there.

Not sure why you'd anodize your pot... I guess if you were trying to connect it to something it might make some sense.

This is pretty cool. A bunch of fairly well known retro computing enthusiasts (including The 8-Bit Guy) got hold of an empty Apple ][ case, and each took turns improving on the idea of turning it into a working Raspberry Pi based machine.

Even better, they're now going to give it away to a randomly selected viewer.
Follow the link above to enter (or to just watch the videos).

I had thought of doing that exact project, but I didn't want to pay the increasingly significant amount of money required to get even a broken Apple ][. Glad to see someone else did it.

I've got an Apple II.. and no you cannot have it. I bet Ragnar has one or two hanging around too.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't regret selling my Apple IIgs system before I left for college. I had built it up to rival the 386/486 equivilants, and gave awey a ton of software which included a particular BBS software that I was very involved with. I miss Guy T. Rice. Lost track of him after he left Mankato, MN.

Ah, nostalgia strikes again.

heheh. I had a Franklin Ace 1000 from 1982. But I picked up an Apple II along the way and it is still hanging around.

If I was going to raid Ragnar's collection (which would be dangerous considering he's more heavily armed than a third world country) I wouldn't be interested in anything Apple ... I'd go for the PET, which would be gutted and turned into a Raspberry PET, or the H-89, which would be downgraded to an H-19.
