Apple History At folklore.org
We were surprised to see that the comments at the top of the game proudly proclaimed the authors: Bill Gates and Neil Konzen. Neil was a bright teenage hacker who I knew from his work on the Apple II (who would later become Microsoft's technical lead on the Mac project) but we were amazed that such a thoroughly bad game could be co-authored by Microsoft's co-founder, and that he would actually want to take credit for it in the comments.
And it ends there. Too funny if you ask me.
As for the Python portion of the site, could be a form of python based nuke system. Wouldn't be that hard to make, although running mod_python on certain machines would act strange if the admin didn't set it up properly. IMHO python is a lot easier than PERL, but we know what they say about opinions...
