I was looking for a quote and I came across this. What an odd thing to make a web page about.

Death of Famous Scientists (http://www.mlahanas.de/Strange/Death.htm)

In the Good Old Days, it would have been green characters on a black background.

Much easier on the eyes.

Or, for the rebels, amber characters on a black background.

I used to have a lovely amber on black wyse terminal, which I rather stupidly left it in former clients machine room. I don't think you can get them anymore.

Alan Mathison Turing
1. On the 17th day of December, 1951, at Wilmslow, being a male person, committed an act of gross indecency with Arnold Murray, a male person.
2. On the 17th day of December, 1951, at Wilmslow, being a male person was party to the commission of an act of gross indecency with Arnold Murray, a male person.

Proof if ever it was needed that Wilmslow is a male person.

I'm now feeling guilty for all the old computers I have let die. Most of them don't even raise a hit if you put their names into ebay. How sad.

Ooh I never had anything as cool as that, more the sort of low end sun & HP boxes that no one ever really loved. But they didn't deserve to die.

I think that might have been the picture I used to show ex-mrs HAB the new kit I was having delivered to our condo. My desk was in our main area and I said there was plenty of room for the new kit beside it. I tried to convince her that she would get used to the noise and that she would hardly notice the cut backs we had to make in spending so that we could pay for the additional cost of the air-conditioning.

She fell for it hook line and sinker and went into one for hours. She went to work and complained to her work mates about it. Lunch time she came home to find .......



.. all I had ordered and got delivered was a wireless base station.
