Anyone got news on Corenominal and Bobobex?

Just curious how they're doing (hope well) and someone here may still be in contact or following along with them.

If so give the rest of us an update? smile

ummm wow,
you can contact him through a webpage. I honestly thought the only way to contact people like that was the power of prayer

His last tweet was on Feb 7, and it's a good one. Also from his twitter;

No, my mouse finger got hacked. It was a total nightmare. TCP port 79 has a lot to answer for. Yes.

Belongs in the quote thread, I reckon.

@ohnonot, +1. The program was written in 1971, we're not going to get much more ol' skool than that.

actually does anyone remember when "finger" commands/quiries were normal hahahaha
oh what was the other command?, finger and something else - you could get peoples email addresses and other data. That was in the golden age of the internet when robbers, thieves, and advertisers hadnt discovered it

Not sure, I first used the internet in 1990
actually, more accurately, I first used the WWW in 1990 - wait, no, 1991, I just checked
was using more primitive stuff before that, so it may have even been before the stone age

These days it seems that lots of distros and other operating systems are adding tons of glitz and glitter to desktop interfaces. CrunchBang 11 does the complete opposite. Frankly, it’s a breath of fresh air and I enjoyed it. It was fast, stable and did what I wanted it to do. It never bogged me down in useless desktop drivel.

We should frame this and put it up on the wall.

i first used it in 1993.
i had a dial-in internet connection from university.
i logged in and started looking at HTML documents as plain text. I have no idea why i did it like that, but I remember it vividly. It was like something from the movies, all these secret cryptic messages suddenly coming in.
Unsurprisingly, I didn't have much use for that, and it wasn't until 98 or 99 until i even got my first email address.

I was going to quip on the "gold" you mentioned; i think the golden age of the internet (or the wild west age of expansion) was around the turn of the millenium, when "dotcom" was a buzzword and the evil business practices of google, facebook & co. were born, because "as long as there's no law against it we're going to milk this until it dries out".
It still didn't dry out, but law is catching up, and imo the golden age of the internet is now over, which is a good thing.

I miss Finger, now that you mention it. It was so much less unwieldy than searching the university directory...
