So I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Dr. Fun, but it’s a webcomic that I’ve been reading since i figured out what webcomics were. At some point in my college career I realized that the author was lurking around the basement of the Regenstein, the library at the University of Chicago, but I never went to go ferret him out.
It turns out that he’s directly my friend’s Dean’s boss, who this week gave me some old hardware they were not using. I met Mr. Farley, who was a quiet, enthusiastic geek; pretty much exactly like I envisioned him. he then showed me an original VT100.
