Other stuff

I have tried to put in handy page tabs on the top nav bar to link you to most of my current work, but there are some other notable works that don’t easily fit. Here are links to these efforts. Note, blogs come and go, some links may no longer be active.

  1. I notice an error in the article you have published about hard drives….
    You refer to the IBM 305RAMDAC as holding 5MB. It didn’t. It held 5 million _6bit_ words. Just 3.75MB. 🙂
