Ask Slashdot: What Tech Products Were Built To Last?

c600g Re:HP LaserJet 4M+ (702 comments)

Agreed. The HP LJ 3 series was a workhorse.

My first ever inkjet printer (HP Deskjet 500) also lasted forever. In fact, I eventually donated it and it still worked - never had an issue with that printer!

Ask Slashdot: How Do You Stay Fit At Work?

c600g My daily routine (635 comments)

I'm lucky enough to live close to the ocean, so I surf on my lunch when the weather is nice out. Otherwise, I'll take a 2.5 mile walk or bike during my lunch. I need to get off my ass after sitting in front of the computer all morning, and have just made it a part of my daily routine. I have three kids, and don't want to take time away from them (nor pay for a gym membership), so I find that this works best for me.

MIT Lecturer Defends His Standing As Email Inventor

c600g Re:Maybe... (249 comments)

Yup - I also remember implementing a version of UUCP e-mail on my home grown Apple //e BBS software that could connect with other BBSs (specifically, a ProLine BBS a friend ran) to deliver e-mail to/from other systems. Good times... good times!

AppleCrate II: Apple II-Based Parallel Computer

c600g Re:Cool but... (126 comments)

Wow, kind of a reminder of how much they've changed. These days it's, "You need an Apple technician to replace the battery / hard drive / casing / logo..."

That is why I haven't owned an Apple Computer since my old and faithful Apple ][e. I used that computer from around 6th grade until I was in my first year of graduate school, when I finally bought a 386DX PC. Crazy, I know.

And finally, a story where my user name makes sense...

Paizo to Discontinue Dragon and Dungeon Magazines

c600g Re:Online gaming "magazines" (82 comments)

Of course, one you *stop* subscribing to Pyramid magazine, then your access to that content goes *poof!* as well. If you can't download it in a nice format, then the online model loses a lot of appeal to me.
