One of my new years resolutions, if I had any, is to complete a project every fifteen days. I started a new one to get me inspired - a decompile and analysis of the Diversi-Dial binary. It's two projects in one - the decompile itself, and a tool of my own design to facilitate the review. This is a work in progress, but it's going really well so far! I've wondered about the internals ever since I called one for the first time over two decades ago.. it's time to lay this unsolved mystery to rest.
The world didn't end, yay. Moving right along.. Happy winter solstice! My favorite time of the year, and the days really can use lengthening now as well.
OMG.. Fathom events is having another Star Trek The Next Generation movie theater screening! This time it's Season 2 and they're showing Q Who and Measure Of A Man, two really great episodes in their own right.

Here's a good article on dining in Hell's Kitchen. With the concluding paragraph suggesting the next season is starting in 2013. I wanna go so badly! :)
Everyone! Get out and vote! This election is so important!
After our downtime (which went successfully!) I threw up a 'joke' ddial that wasn't quite SF. It will be fully restored tomorrow.
For the canucks, enjoy our August Long Weekend!
It turns out that it really is bad for you. Who knew?get it out of our food now!
OMG! Thanks Pe_Ell for pointing out that one can finally use
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, a man named Bill Basham created one of the first online chat systems for the Apple II+ and IIe.
Back then it was called a "CB Simulator", as the command terminology was designed around the language used in Citizen's Band and amateur radio circles. Once you dialed in and entered your password (or hit RETURN on an open-to-guests or "unlocked" system, you would be dropped into a room with other callers. You could type
/hHandle to enter the nickname or 'handle' you wanted to use, or use
/tN to 'tune' to channels 1, 2, 3, or 4 (channels 1 & 2 for public conversation, 3 and 4 for two-person private chat). It had limited support for email (which required a 64k Apple IIe with the 64k RAM expansion option to store the email) and had 240 character "message slots" from
/mz. It was truly a pioneer in its time.
Who among us doesn't want to return to the fun filled days of three hundred baud and a limit of seven lines per chat system? I know I do! Thanks to modern emulation, I was able to turn those dreams into reality. I faithfully recreated my favorite old system, Savage Frontier, back in 2007. It will continue to run as a testament to that era. In fact, why don't you check it out right now? Go back in time!
I hope you enjoy. Love, Mouse
