27-Dec-04: For the first time in since 1993 I have had to adjust a few of the prices but not by much.
01-Mar-02: At last! The new web site replaced the old. The structural layout is designed to be easily expanded with a common look and feel. The home page is the index to all the sub-pages regardless of their layer bringing everything to the customer in 1 to 2 clicks, and the code has been kept very simple. With the design in place, work can continue to finally bring everything on-line for the benefit of all concerned.
12-Jul-01: Today, I uploaded the start of the new site I've been working on for awhile. Completion of the new site will take a ton of time and detail but it will be worth the effort.
Major changes to the Club 100 web site were badly needed. Way too much was still not online after 18 years, and the style still paralleled the BBSthe source of most of the data. It was time to renew the commitment. In one year, two major articles on Club 100 were published (WIRED Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle), and a tv segment aired on TECHTV, with an article on the TECHTV web site. This brought new people into Model "T" computing and existing owners back into using their Model "T"s.
The new-to-Model "T" computing friends come from an age that did not live the golden age (circa early '80s). They know only GUI interfaces, expensive machines and a general disconnect from the pleasures and demands of early computing. And the returing-to-Model "T" computing friends need to get caught up. Thus, it is my wish to, at last, build the ultimate resource so any new and existing fellow Model "T"er may start at the beginning, like the rest of us have enjoyed for so many years.
17-Aug-98: Changes: Interest in Model "T" computing is up, and The Whole Enchilada is online, at last! Articles have been written in paper and electronic, bringing yet more people into Model "T" computing. Cosmetic changes include a new telephone area code and dropping our discussions on Excel Tel. We've dropped the Power Pillow and Cover from our product line. Everything else about the "Second Decade" program is working fine.
20-Dec-97: Four years after writing the initial idea of the "Second Decade" and one year after setting up the Club 100 web site, we are still going strong, more electronic than ever and are looking at a bright future.
