New PC

, ,

There was a lack of blogging the last two days, as I have been going through the ordeal of installing programs and moving stuff to a new personal computer.

I can remember seeing Jim Dunnigan, my boss at SPI, obsessing out playing with a new TRS-80 way back in 1977.

It’s been 41 long, hard years, folks, and these things are still not an appliance at all. Trying to put a non-Google, Yahoo, or Microsoft email into Outlook is a task on the scale of killing the biggest monster in the last dungeon. You die a lot before you get it.

You may have mentioned it previously, but I’d no idea you were an SPI alum. Were you involved in design, or the business/admin side? Your major old-school geek cred makes me enjoy your site all the more.

I started playtesting, and Dunnigan offered me a job assistant developing. It was fun stuff. No money in it, of course. Unfortunately, SPI was starting to fall apart in my day. Everybody was feuding with everybody else.
