An Updated Blast From the Past

Wow…

When I was kid, I bought many of the Warren Publishing horror and sci-fi magazines like ‘Eerie’ and ‘Creepy’. Apparently, a new publisher named Warrant has resurrected some of the old stories along side new stories in ‘Creeps’. When I was a kid, I used to pick up the Warren magazines until they folded. I spotted this as I picked up yesterday’s ‘1619 ’ New York Times edition.

And a Richard Corben cover illustration too!

This Super Retro Website Is Running on a 30-Year-Old Mac

Any old computer can host a website, and now one enthusiast has taken that turn of phrase literally. 

As first spotted on Boing Boing and Slashdot, on the frontiers of the world wide web one man is keeping the URL rhyal.com up on a Macintosh SE/30 running MacOS 7.5.5. Apple released the SE/30 in 1989, and the base model shipped with a 16 Mhz processor and 1MB of RAM. The computer I’m typing this on has a 4.2 GHz processor, and 32GB of RAM. By today’s standards, the SE/30 is seriously underpowered, but that doesn’t mean it’s worthless.
