This week is dedicated to posting only positive, or at least non-negative things. I get snarky, ,my blood pressure goes up, I eat fast food…it’s not good for me to spend so much time trolling The Source of All Things Clueless to find stories to mock. Before my doctor tells me to stop, I’m going to take matters into my own hands and just try to play nice for a week.
I’d say the odds are about 50/50 that I can make it, but hey, it’ll be fun to try.
Anyway, while searching for a technical manual for a point of sale system, I came across this little gem. Not exactly what I was looking for, but it made me smile. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with MS-DOS. It’s been even longer since I’ve had occasion to poke around any CP/M machines. But I’ve worked with them, I have. I have worked with them professionally. I’m not going to say I miss them, but it’s kind of like coming across a photo of yourself from so long ago that you can’t even remember being that person.
I genuinely never thought I’d feel unironic nostalgia for an operating system. Funny old world, innit?
