In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

TSR Memories

Back in the day, when DOS 3.3 was the supreme operating system, Boreland's "Sidekick" was popular. I used it, found it more than helpful, and finally stopped using it, when they dragged my butt into the twentieth century miracles of multitasking operating systems.

What is a TSR? It was a terminate and stay resident program, which used a tiny amount of the precious memory allowed by DOS, and helped tremendously with dealing with batch files, directories, running programs, and just examining what was on your computer. There was even a calculator, and notepad.

Why am I posting about this? I have no idea. Maybe "Sidekick" didn't quite terminate, and stayed resident in my memory.
