Know those "ant farms" where it has 2 glass windows
and sand, and you pour sand and sugar and ants in the
top, and watch them run around and make tunnels ?
Well, Dave Hicks always wanted an ant farm. But he probably could not have one when he was a kid because of the worry he would tip it over.
So now, what he did, is he made up this "HP Museum" website.
The computer is the ant farm.
The monitor screen is the glass window.
And we who visit, and who post, are the ants. We are running around like little ants in the Dave Hicks ant farm.
And it all happens on the server in the corner of his basement .
And the ant-farm keeps getting bigger ... and bigger ...
