I ended up being involved in a conversation which started after the remark of a top Twitter manager when he described Twitter as an Information Network. Many folk seemed to be disagreeing with that view and were keen to call it a social network, and expressed concerns that Twitter management don't 'get it'.
In my last couple of posts I've been writing about a problem I encountered when I moved into the 64 bit world of computing, but still had to work with a 16 bit DOS program and analyse its reports.
In my last post I talked about a problem I had after I upgraded to 64 bit Windows and needed to archive a text based report output by an old DOS program which was now hosted in a virtual machine. I ended the post by giving an example of the report, which I replicate here:
Just over a year ago I had a problem, I'd just bought a new PC and since it had 8Gb RAM it had to run 64bit Windows (see this post for an explanation on what that's all about). But 64 bit Windows doesn't support DOS based programs, now I'm happy for that to be the case as DOS is a very old technology and at some point I think that modern systems need to leave the past behind.
