Seven OSs
Geek-out time! We have here: Windows 3.1 Windows 95 Windows 98 SE Windows XP Mac System 7.5 (m68k) RISC OS 4 (ARM) All running on Kubuntu Linux 9.04. The Windowses are running in Virtualbox, System 7 in Basilisk II and RISC OS in RPCEmu. Only XP is using full CPU virtualisation, it seems to disagree with the earlier versions.

Ten Years Online Today!
Ten years ago today I received my first e-mail. This is a photo of my setup at the time. I bought the 33.6k modem with money from my first job and signed up to Argonet using a voucher in Acorn User. The modem was £94 and it cost £10 per month not including the phone call costs! I used to look forward to weekends because the calls were cheaper then so I could spend more time online. Wasted teenage years? Just think, I could have been drinking cheap cider in the park. Needless to say, my third e-mail was spam. Some things don’t change.
