Thanks Mike! The hypercard stack background in itself was super
interesting. I didn't actually browse the information though. Hope you
stick around the newsgroup.
Oh, I'll probably be around, lurking if nothing else. I've been feeling
more and more like I want some kind of connection with Halifax (where I
mostly grew up and went to University), not to mention USENET.
I'd even tried to reconnect to Chebucto Community Net, thinking there
were local forums on there that a person could access from elsewhere on
the internet through an ssh session as opposed to dialup. Not sure it
actually works that way, though. I donated the bit of money they ask
that you validate/register with, but then I was either too late getting
around to finishing the registation or it doesn't work the way I thought
it did, technically. Oh well, the donation can be for the years I used
it for internet when I was young.
Then I had a dream last night that I quit my job and decided to go back
to school at Dalhousie. But the professors were puzzled what to advise
me to do, because I wanted to do a masters in math while not remembering
any of my undergrad math or really having proper aptitude. Plus neither
of us thought there'd be much demand for a mathematician around Halifax
(don't know if that's true), nothing like the demand for a computer
programmer at any rate.
