I love this thing

In the process of copying over all of my files from the old computer to the new one. I've got both running, but only one monitor... So I've got two keyboards, two mice, two computers, and one monitor. Suddenly I'm back in August 1996. I'm in a small office in Matawan, NJ, working for Cheersoft. I'm playing around with Worldgroup/MajorBBS client/server programming. I've got the back-end C++ program I've been working on for weeks including an overnighter and bringing code home to peruse on one computer, and Visual Basic on the other computer looking to how hard it would be to code up a graphical interface as we did for UltraGlobals and other fine Cheersoft packages. A little box next to the computers lets me flip between monitors. The Sales department (a few people who can't code or don't want to) are running 486-66s with Windows 95, connecting on our office's T1 to yahoo and such. The Development department (a few people who know a smattering of code) is sitting on P100's with nineteen inch monitors. Just because our boss can afford them, even though we're doing nothing but coding in DOS and testing our code in DOS, except for the one dual machine I was playing on with DOS on a computer and Windows 95 on another.

That company would go out of business a couple of weeks before I started at Drew. I miss that job.
