Honestly, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean, sure, it was August, group housing was involved, a touch of Tom Sawyer, a healthy dollop of heat exhaustion, and probably some dehydration. But when the idea presented itself, it seemed natural. One download from… probably Compuserve… using a 26k modem, and the Harpoon was in business. Yes, that, and most importantly a vase of flowers for a friendly receptionist in the university print shop.
There was some writing involved, but it’s probably best to not dwell on that.
