THEN convert from EBCDIC to familiar ASCII, which was ROT-13 and UUENCODED into a file that used ANOTHER obscure compression scheme from CP/M days..

I’m impressed – I took a day’s vacay from FayBay to search an external HD collecting dust in an open drawer, to find some words I wrote online 21 years ago that disappeared from any easily accessible online source. It led me to a treasure trove of ‘stuff’ when I came across the file containing a series of text files compressed in an obscure compression scheme that no modern computer system would _ever_ even consider supporting in any way, had to reinstall DOSBox in order to find a decompression tool to expand… and THEN convert from EBCDIC to familiar ASCII, which was ROT-13 and UUENCODED into a file that used ANOTHER obscure compression scheme from CP/M days.. which was a hard enough tool to find in 1991…

…apparently I was hiding my thoughts…

…but it was worth the process.

Now I haz catching up to do, and it seems much has been said. Sans interruptions, I shall enjoy smile emoticon
