WHAT!?  Oh… yeah.  Time – I forgot about u.

I wrote a utility, in pre web browser days (Unix Mosaic was released Feb 1993; Mac and Windows in August 1993.  Mosaic became Netscape which died in 2007, but it’s the reason the WWW took over – now where’s my old man cane? GET OFF MAE LAWN!)

Anyway, a long time ago.

I came across a revision to a program I released in Feb ’93 and found a line that had me laughing:

CONV2SND.PAS: 2.02
February 3, 1993
Kenneth Udut
Revised 10/15/96
J.L. Hayes

I’M STILL HERE JEFFREY!

You got http://www.oldskool.org/guides/tvdog/index_html but YOU appear to have vanished.  poof  – so :P   and no I’m not sending you an…. email — get with the program man.  I may be collecting my past and bringing it into the present but I’m still here, still learning, still moving forward ’cause the future I want ain’t here yet.

Takeaway points for my few loyal readers here:
a) If you have a presence on the Internet, don’t just disappear.
b) If you do, come back once in a while.
c) Your friends will remember you.
