    Speaking of dictionaries, you guys remember back around 20 years ago when we bought Encarta on CD-ROMs and dictionaries were on CD-ROMs too? Wasn’t that the Golden Age of computing, when PCs were just starting to become real multimedia machines and getting connected to the internet?

    Good times!

      Encarta Mind Maze – good times.

        Encarta taught me The Message by Grandmaster Flash. Thanks Microsof.

    Portugese is nice. But unless you have a Hungarian-English phrasebook, then my hovercraft has no eels today.

      Does having used the Hungarian Notation count?

    Hey, is it posted anywhere here at TR that Paul Allen died yesterday? I am not seeing it. That’s sad, good lord, the guy co-founded Microsoft, he was a true pioneer in those earliest days of the PC.

    I finally found it mentioned in a forum. Geez, his picture should be on the top of this site at least briefly. Give the guy his due. TR is not alone, though; most of the tech sites I have visited today make no mention. That is really sad; this is an industry with a fascinating history.
