Welcome
At the end of a modem I found "The Wrong Number"
and "The Armory".
If The Wrong Number was generally considered my home,
then finding The Armory was like discovering a new continent. -- Elf

DeepThought

In my early teens I was an avid BBSer. I travelled BBS Systems all over the world and was well tuned to the idea of a "Community". I was also on The Internet, and through "nefarious means" at that but it was "University System" this, and "University System" that.

Then I moved to Santa Cruz, CA. Being a "local" (albeit still in my young teens) I was encouraged to get an "Armory.Com" account. Here there be community. Here there be access. Here I don't have to hide my activities.

This is my oldest *legal* UNIX/Internet/EMail account.

I still log-in and run "who | sort" (bash alias of "ws") out of habit to be sure the usual suspects are where they're supposed to be, doing what they usually do. I still read my mail with pine. And I still edit text with vim. My terminal emulation is still happily vt102. We have perl, but no PHP.

Logging into DeepThought is as natural to me as sitting in my living room.
