They just don't make 'em like they used to. Within the past couple weeks, I finally got my mom to throw out six old (broken) computers, and a handful more of (broken) mainboards that I still had lying around her house. I also recently found my Dad's old Atari computer. Which has been sitting in a box for ... 20 plus years? And still works fine. (Here: running 10 PRINT "HI DAD! / 20 GOTO 10 / RUN -- back then computers "booted" to BASIC prompt.)

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.
