Some Amazing Oldness



- for download - This is Netscape .95 from Dec. 7, 1994 -
pre-release. Might have to make some adjustments to get it running,
but it does (on much older equipment of course).

Note the browser size!


- for download; some of the urls still work. This is also from 1994,
perhaps a little earlier. Through O'Reilly at the time.

Then there's this Unix Fortune from a few days ago -

Enjoy -

                         --- ------ The Gurus of Unix Meeting of
Minds (GUMM) takes place Wednesday, April 1, 2076 (check THAT in
your perpetual calendar program), 14 feet above the ground directly
in front of the Milpitas Gumps.  Members will grep each other by
the hand (after intro), yacc a lot, smoke filtered chroots in
pipes, chown with forks, use the wc (unless uuclean), fseek nice
zombie processes, strip, and sleep, but not, we hope, od.  Three
days will be devoted to discussion of the ramifications of whodo.
Two seconds have been allotted for a complete rundown of all the
user- friendly features of Unix.  Seminars include "Everything You
Know is Wrong", led by Tom Kempson, "Batman or Cat:man?" led by
Richie Dennis "cc C?  Si!  Si!" led by Kerwin Bernighan, and
"Document Unix, Are You Kidding?" led by Jan Yeats.  No Reader
Service No. is necessary because all GUGUs (Gurus of Unix Group of
Users) already know everything we could tell them.
                 -- Dr. Dobb's Journal, June '84
