#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.
Hey moon landing disbelievers, you can still shine your laser on the LURE ;-) https://spectrum.ieee.org/the-institute/ieee-history/one-apollo-11-experiment-is-still-going-50-years-later
Hey I'm looking for a job. I've been out of work for 3 months and trying to find anything has been a real struggle.
Anyway, I'm a game designer. The last game I worked on was Halo Infinite. I've also done work for a variety of other AAA and Mobile games, including Forza Motorsports and Plants Vs Zombies 2
I've also used Unity and C# for like the past 6 years and can pretty much do anything
please boost or get in touch
This series continues to be amazing.

This is pretty ignorant of the past (he later added a concession for Lisps' continuations). I mostly hoped to get some insight into the thinking behind React-type frameworks.

A fascinating recollection of Control Data mainframe operation and maintenance at a university. Interestingly, this was a non-PLATO site. The anecdotes give a flavor of the era and the culture that surrounded it, along with the amazingly offbeat quirks of the Cyber architecture.

There is another good article on Zork and text adventures from Tedium. Lots of good links to archive.org resources. https://tedium.co/2019/06/27/adventure-games-interactive-fiction-history
Nice article on the history of Zork, ZIL, and Infocom. https://hackaday.com/2019/05/22/zork-and-the-z-machine-bringing-the-mainframe-to-8-bit-home-computers/
An "oldie" that I still find thought-provoking. Brad Nelson of Google contemplates the tradeoff of our familiar plain text source code and other representations of "truth".
Following the story about recovering IBM 360s and similar from Nuremberg, here is a more modern take on setting up a hobbyist mainframe.
