Columbia University Computing History
I find it very nice, see the article about Comrie for example.

http://www.columbia.edu/cu/computinghistory/index.html

Small info about me. Yes I am not that active in the forum, I really long to have the tranquillity to participate again but unfortunately the last period (6 months or so) was quite stressful and no improvements are on the horizon.

I really hope that in the meanwhile nice discussions are happening, as I will read them in the future (hopefully). Also if possible do not forget to conserve stuff/do recreational math, see the p2p collections. About those, my torrent client somehow misconfigured itself, I need to fix it otherwise I cannot contribute via torrent (only via ed2k).

And then I'll need to update all those threads, at least the core ones: list challenges, benchmarks, used calculators, RPL code snippets. (of course some are on the wiki thus other people can work on them as well)

Have a nice day and see you then Smile

Wikis are great, Contribute :)

Excellent web site, thanks for the link! The HUMOR link certainly shows that spam is not a recent phenomenon.

All the best.

Who decides?

It was amusing that http://www.columbia.edu/cu/computinghistory/index.html list an IBM personal computer in 1948.

It's not a typo for the IBM PC AT in 1984 Smile

Thanks, hope things improve for you.
