What I would like to see in Canola

OK, now I know that it's easy for people who don't code to be sofa commentators on what they would like to see in software packages, but I will do so anyway ;-)I've been using canola a lot in the past few weeks as my media player of choice when I am using my N800 as a PMP and not as a tablet for browsing.

Now, when I was in High School, and I had recently moved back from Greece, I had started to write letters to two or three friends of mine. My address became known and soon more friends had

Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple IIgs

Αν και με το Apple II δεν έπαιξα πολύ, με το Apple IIgs έμαθα να προγραμματίζω χρησιμοποιώντας την γλώσσα Apple BASIC. Μπορώ να πω πως το Apple IIgs κατοικεί μια ιδιαίτερή θέση στην ιστορία της πληροφορικής μου. Το Apple IIgs που είχαμε στην τάξη

2 χρόνια μετά τρέλας

Βασικά έχουν περάσει δύο χρόνια από τότε που άρχισαν τα τρελά με την πρώην αφεντικίνα οπότε είπα και εγώ πως είναι η κατάλληλη στιγμή να γράψω ένα ή δύο λόγια για το τι έγινε, πώς έγινε και πώς καταλήξαμε στα τρελά γεγονότα

Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple II

Όταν ήμουν στο γυμνάσιο είχαμε μερικά παμπάλαια Apple II που τρέχανε AppleDOS.  Η αλήθεια είναι πως δεν τα χρησιμοποιούσαμε για να δημιουργούμε έγραφα αλλά παρά μόνο να παίζουμε κάτι εξίσου παλαιά παιχνίδια εκπαιδευτικά που είχε

Keeping in touch

I had a random thought the other day spurred by an email I had received by a friend of mine with a minor complaint that I don't email my news to said person that often. This got me thinking.
