General Computer Textfiles

Your one-stop shop for all files of a "computery" nature, that cover how to

rebuild a piece of computer hardware to do something it was

never meant to do, or to see someone go really deeply into a computing

subject that would cause most people to yawn and look for the snack table.

Since BBSes were on computers, it was natural for people who used BBSes

to focus on all aspects of these wonderful machines. The evidence of

their interest and their experimentation resides below.

Of course, nearly ALL textfiles are computer-related in some fashion, and

some subjects might fit here but fit even better in another section. For

example, you should most definitely check out the

<A HREF="/programming">programming</A>

and <A HREF="/apple">apple</A> sections as well, as you might not agree with

what I decided should go where.
