Old School Textfiles …

I downloaded my fair share of textfiles during the 90s using a 1200 baud (yup .. 120 Characters per second) from many a BBS within the cost of a local phone call.

So Warren Ellis pointed out Preterhuman.net. 106 gig of textfiles on a wide variety of topics. I can’t help myself, you never know when text files of HAM Radio will come in handy. So .. again, I’ll probably go download a whole lot more textfiles. I did find a copy of “Ludwig Wittgenstein – Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus” which is supposed key philosophy text, but it’s in spanish. I’m not sure my Beer and room ordering Spanish capabilities will get me through such a mind bending text.

I am a sucker for computer culture things (read: 80s and 90s cyberpunk commentaries on society and our bleak future).
So obviously, the Computer Culture section is always of interest.

If you do like this style thing, check out Textfiles.com .. it same, same, but different .. and it has green on black colour scheme to remind me of the good ol’ days.
