A trip down memory lane

I recently spent some time digging through a huge cache of old CDs and hard drives I found in a drawer containing files that date back to the early 90s, and one of the things I found was copies of the old xeromag Web site from 1998.

Man, it was appallingly bad. Dear god.

In April of 1998, the home page of xeromag.com looked like this:

Contrast that with how it looks right now:

I look at the old design and cringe.

I also found some old .ARC files that contain letters and other word processing files from as long ago as 1984(!), and source code for TRS-80 software I wrote in 1979(!!). I can't wait to see what's in there, but first I'll need to find software that can uncompress .ARC archives.

Oh blimey, I'd almost forgotten about ARC format files! Wow... It brings back memories of staying up until 3am downloading files from LANCS.PDSOFT over the UKJANet X25 network :-)

You should probably convert them before the last ever unarc'er disappears forever!

That's a bit scary...
You have files that are almost as old as I am!
