EIGHT IN ONE is still great fun ;-)

Summary: review of Spinnaker Eight In One Integrated Office Suite for DOS.  (Yes, for DOS!)...

... This suite was my best friend back when I had a 286 at home and my work was all IBM-XT. The Database applet does xBase files compatible with dBaseIII+ so I could compile the WHCN Top 1006 Countdowns and catalog all of the carts, DATs and 15inch reels in the legendary radio station "Basement Tape" collection and just carry a 5.25 inch floppy between home and work to tweak the data. Also, the WordPerfect/MS-Word5 style Word Processor links up to the DBFs so mail merging was a snap ... IN DOS 3x, no less.

... It makes my HP200lx DOS 5.0 palmtop even better. And the manual is just plain stunning compared to the manuals written over the past several years. There is something to be said about the days when software couldn't be updated instantly over the internet... they put full effort into making things rock solid BEFORE SHIPPING.


Facebook? Yes I have used it.


Last fall my friend Kat told me that there was a WHCN alumni group on facebook that I just had to join.  I told her that  I'd coded against the fb api but never really saw the draw of being a user.

She called me an old fart and that was that.

Couple nights ago after mixing cold and hot sake I did a boogle for HCN and the group popped up.  I saw Kat's postings from last year, and Kim Alexander's and Dan Hayden's and Johnston Izzi's and got all nostalgic and joined and posted.

Radio stuff found in the move


Boyo, we all sure accumulate a lot of stuff over the eras. Several moves ago I finally let go of the refrigerator sized Sony pro reel deck that WHCN gave me for my home-work in the late 1980's. Moves since have seen the eventual diminishing of the extra-bedroomful of 15inch reels themselves, but for decades my packrattiness just could not part with the mass of cassettes and DATs from the days of local AOR being a god.

As time goes the list below will grow. Some of most of it will be total shit to anyone but me, some or most of it will be total shit these days even to me. But if you did Rock Radio or the mighty WHCN back in the the heyday of American hot-promotional AOR, then maybe some of it will just be kinda neat for ya.
