I miss those days. ;)
The TRS-100 was a favorite terminal/computer for the physically disabled.
One friend of mine lived the last 35 years of his life in an iron lung and owuld use a pencil in his mouth to press keys on the '100.
Anybody done a presentation on Citadel at their local Linux/Unix/Mac/whatever user group?
I've put my hand up to do one at the programmers sig at ausom (ausom.net.au) next month.
Bits I'd like to cover:
* Brief history of Citadel
* Citadel vs all the other stuff which gets more press than us
* Overview of node-to-node, node-to-client communication, what you can use to connect to Citadel.
* Compiling and using citadel and webcit from scratch
I don't know if it's a good topic for a first introduction, but I think one of Citadel's understated features is the ability to link a bunch of them together and give the whole network one or more Internet domain names that span all nodes.
Aside from that, you could walk the audience through an Easy Install while you give some talking points, or maybe show them the Flash demo from the web site.
Definitely show them some of the nifty AJAX features, such as the ability to drag-and-drop a message from one room to another. The hover-bubbles over calendar items tend to wow people too.
