That was 30 years ago. Technology changes and so do people.


Embrace it or get left behind in your own fantasy J

Quick summary of what the "cloud" is, not too bad:




Basically the same old stuff we were doing 30 years ago with a big central
server and green terminals, but this time with the internet in the middle
and lots of HTML cr*p and megabytes of badly written Javascript for most of
it, trying to replace the horrible ESC sequences for VT100. That makes all
the ozzie ISPs happy, since their meters go ding-ding!


Sorry... ;)
