Found an interesting picture….


Recognize this guy?

While looking around for a picture of an IBM XT, I came across this great picture of Stanley Kubrick with a pre production XT! I found this on the great blog kubrickonia.

I guess it’s slightly interesting that Kubrick was into IBM’s, Arthur C Clarke was into his Kaypro.

And Douglas Adams was all about the Macintosh.(which it seems he even had one handy to use as a prop for this Infocom picture……)

Ok, I know it’s not the most exciting update, but hey, I’m still unpacking stuff like crazy.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
