RCR Episode 155 - Getting done

Panelists: Earl Evans (hosting), Paul Hagstrom, Michael Mulhern, Jack Nutting, and Carrington Vanston

Host's Topic: Getting done

Projects - so easy to start, so difficult to complete! What techniques have you found to cross the finish line? What stands in your way? Should we adopt a more businesslike approach to our hobby endeavors - would that take the fun out of it, or add to the fun when the final result appears?

RCR Episode 153 - Random Access Memories

Host's Topic: Random Access Memories

RAM limitations. Early on in home/personal computing, we were faced with very real RAM constraints. Not like today’s RAM measured in GBs and added in freely, only really affecting disk reliance. What do you remember about bumping into RAM limits, planning programs around them, finding failures, expanding, etc.

RCR Episode 152 - Future nostalgists

Host's Topic: Future nostalgists

We're nostalgic for our formative computing years now, but lots of that old cool stuff got discarded or broken or traded along the way. D'oh! If only we'd been thinking of now then. But the kids of today will be our age at some point. Are we doing any better for their generation? What will they want back? Or, maybe easier: What do we wish our parents or former selves had hung onto?
