Tediously typing computer programs into their (or others') systems
from listings in printed magazines bought in and brought home from a
store (by which I mean the physical, brick-and-mortar kind), only to
spend anywhere from minutes to days figuring out why the program
doesn't do what the magazine says it will, if it even works at all.
This thread should probably be on COFF, not TUHS.

below it, there seems to be something like a web panel...

All, does anybody know the status of classiccmp.org? It's been down for a

If it's a issue of hosting, and someone has Jay West's e-mail address,
then I could host the list on minnie. I've just done the mailman3
upgrade with mailman2 running concurrently to provide old-school list
archives. I'd be happy to give Jay access to the system.
