    Man, I woke up so burnt out that I'm not convinced I didn't just pull an all nighter. But in truck news I rebuilt and cleaned my coilovers. One pretty badly needed a new shaft and the other got a rebuild cause well if you're doing one you might as well do both. Today is going to be busy but hopefully short, I'm tired, I have to get these coilovers back on after work and then move the truck out so I can work on putting in a new fuel system on that RX-7

    I know not many of you are interested in computers and certainly even less are interested in vintage computers. But the anniversary of the death of a personal computing pioneer is tomorrow. Gary Kildall wrote the first widely used operating system in home computing, CP/M (what DOS was later designed off of). A single man who as a hobbyist wrote the first OS that was able to allow applications and information to be shared between computers of different manufacture and architecture, something we take for granted now but was unheard of then. Even after Microsoft and IBM copied CP/M to generate QDOS and other later DOS versions Gary still innovated and pivoted to create the first DOS variant that was capable of multitasking (again unheard of in personal computing). Even after Microsoft and IBM once again copied that idea Gary went on to develop the first CD-ROMs for use in a computer, a 550mb Encyclopedia in 1985 and it featured such modern ideas as hypertext and search. His contributions and pioneering ideas are often overlooked and instead names like Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, and IBM are often referenced in literature but the fact is the timeline for those companies most influential releases would have been pushed out incredibly far if it weren't for the contributions of Gary Kildall. Some here can probably relate to him more through his other hobbies as well, he enjoyed building and driving circuit track race cars, sailing/power boating, and owned a few personal aircraft that he piloted for fun. I've read so much vintage computing history but I think Gary deserves more than just a footnote in other companies' success (none of which he ever worked for, most of his ideas were stolen from him and many copyright suits and legal battles were fought).

    That's why the GX will go in the garage and the 4R can get parked in front of the house :burp:

    I'm starting to think that's why these old "ribbon" style driveways exist, which is what we have. Perfect for when your shitbox leaks and you don't want it to be an obvious mess
