    Default Site outage yesterday

    Hi guys,

    If you stopped by yesterday, you probably noticed that the site was down for most of the day while I was performing some upgrades. That's me in the picture fixing the broken flux capacitor. It took a lot longer than I thought.

    The good news is that the site is now up and running and should be faster than ever before. I have plans to update the forum software over the next few months as well. There is a chance that some of the old site features like the casino may not carry over. It doesn't seem like anybody uses them any more anyhow. I appreciate your patience as I try to make this forum a better place to visit.

    -Coach

    That is a tube computer, I worked on the next generation all discrete components not one IC Chip they were not invented yet, it had rows and rows of 4" x 6" cards and on one of those cards were transistors, resistors, diodes and caps for two "and" of "or" gates. Programs were loaded with a punched card readers.
