The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Many fabulous dates

Three hundred sixty-five of them, in fact, illustrated by a couple of computers from my past (and about nine or ten from Terkish Payne's present, I'd bet).

It's the Classic Computers of the Past 2005 Calendar, and I'm lucky enough to have one, even if it does displace Michelle Malkin and Monica Crowley.

Oh, wait. I have more than one wall, don't I?

This would be a cool calendar to have. Not to date myself, but I've actually seen or owned ten of the twelve (never heard of the Enterprise or the Hit Bit thingie). And Charles needs to consider how to use......[read more]

Too bad the calendar didn't include this one:

I wrote an "RPG" based on the Smurfiverse on a TRS-80 - in BASIC.

Yes, lame. But I was 10.

It didn't have the SuperBrain, either.. But it's close enough to perfect.

Terkish Payne, still looking for the Perfect Spot to hang mine.. It'll be there for years, so it has to be Just Right.
