30 april 1993: the free and open WWW started…

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/05/03

This year, the Dutch Queens day this year had a special nature. On the nation level: the abdication by former Queen, now Princess Beatrix, and the succession and inauguration of King Willem-Alexander. On the marching band level: Adest Musica had their Dutch premiere of the new show Mother Earth which will be their entry during the quadrennial Word Music Concours this summer. On the personal level, my best friend visiting The Netherlands for just a few days, so finally a chance to catch up in person.

So I totally missed another important historic event: the 20th birthday of the releasing the WWW source code in the public domain.

More Old Micro Cornucopia issues on BitSavers from 1987 and 1988

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/08

Last quarter, 11 issues of Micro Cornucopia appeared on BitSavers including the final May 1990 issue.

This month, another 7 issues appeared, most of which cover a form of Pascal in one or more of the articles and advertisements:

A fun thing to notice are the advertisements for Modula-2. Logitech Modula-2. Yes though the Logitech Wikipedia page does not mention it at all, Logitech didn’t only sell mice, keyboards and web-cams. They had more products. Being Swiss, they were big in Modula-2. And Bitsavers has a PDF of that too: Logitech_Modula-2_86_1.0_Feb84.pdf

The only issues still to be scanned are #28 till #32.

Recommended reading: “Security Engineering” now available free online

According to Alan Cox,

And yes this is worth reading…

Right now it looks like the site is overloaded, so you will have to use the Google Cache: Light Blue Touchpaper » Blog Archive » “Security Engineering” now available free online.

So I’m going to re-try in a couple of days.

Later: that was an intermediate site. The actual site is Security Engineering – A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems..
