LIVING IN THE PAST: Old school: I work in DOS for an entire day. “I was soon rocking my computer like it was 1994. That is, I had no Twitter, Google, or anything else that used SSL, but I did have some command line TCP/IP tools, an otherwise functional Web browser, and… Gopher. Plus, I had WordPerfect 5, Microsoft Word 5, WordStar, Lotus 123, and dBase III—everything I could ever want, right?” I like the term “abandonware.”
