You can date periods in your life by what software you were using when or perhaps when you first got a glimpse of Windows (to some people it was 'wow! - that's so much better than DOS' and to others it was 'my Mac or Archimedes has done that faster and better for years, big deal'). Anyhow, I digress.

When I visited MyOldMac the memories of spending days playing with a Mac Classic on system 7.0 in a paper-strewn office in Little Clarendon Street in Oxford, just flooded back. The German geniuses behind this simulation even had the spark to program MacWrite in, just to tweak my nostalgia nerve. Quite brilliant. Of course, it would be even better if I could speak German...

This isn't so much a comment on this post in particular, just on comment on the blog in general. It's a strange thing coming across the musings of someone you know while searching for something else on Google. The site looks great. As I would expect, it's clean and classy in its design.
