This is a thread about computers.

I have a lot to say.

I might not be able to finish right now.

I'm going to post unlisted.

I make no secret of the fact that I love old computers, and that I think modern computers have lost their way in terms of providing utility to users. To that end, I write about, and think about, computers and the way to move computers forward, without losing site of the fact that computers should serve their users. I grew up with hand-me-down computers, from Atari to Apple to Dell, and in the process I got to experience a sizable portion of computer history very quickly, in my teen years.

@ajroach42 iDevices are definitely made for consumption not creation

@lawremipsum It's not Impossible to create things on the ipad. I've done podcasts and home movies and some image editing. People tell me that there are even development environments (pythonista, maybe) but they don't make it easy.
