in reply to What kind of computer would you be?

I'd be my old faithful 1986 Apple //c, with it's optional disk drive and its green 9" monitor. Or perhaps an SGI indigo2 MaximumImpact R10000.
update : corrected, Yes it really is a 9 inches monitor, not a 9 feet monitor :)

    Oh yeah :)

    Old thread, but the //c would be me as well - foshure. Only three programs would be needed - Ultima IV, the edasm macro assembler and the Beagle Bros Bag of Tricks :)

    Oh, and maybe Choplifter and Moon Patrol

[marto]: choroba sounds interesting
[RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
[choroba]: RonW Yes, but then, one day, they needed to switch from FTP to SFTP, and... but I can't give the whole talk away here :)
