Of bits and bytes is my weekly round up of interesting links and ideas I discovered on the internet. It is published on Mondays for the previous week
Well, this week has be a whirlwind of trying to keep up at work and flying to Los Angelos over the weekend for the Ryan Rave. Yes, I flew to LA from Ohio (and back in less than 24 hours) for a meetup of people named Ryan. And it was spectacular. This week is our county fair and I’m running a retrocomputing/retrogaming booth to introduce the youngsters to the wonders of Printshop and Oregon Trail.
Anyway, this is a long way of saying that the commentary is at a minimum this week because of time! And, let me know if I need to elaborate more on the Ryan Rave!!
