From the September 2, 2003 issue of PC Magazine:
We would have liked to review Blogger Pro, the paid version of Blogger, but it was in the middle of an overhaul and wasn’t accepting new members. […]
Although Blogger may regain the crown soon, it’s not currently a versatile or powerful tool. If the new version of Blogger Pro isn’t finished by the time you read this, consider Lycos Blog Builder.
From Learning With Your Home Computer, by Susan Curran and Ray Curnow, published by Simon & Schuster, 1983:
But spending every evening and weekend working alone on programs of ever-increasing complexity is an activity of very dubious value for young people.
Some parents encourage any interest, however obsessive, in computers in the hope that this will pave the way to an exciting and lucrative career for their youngsters. Such a career very rarely materializes. Laboring away in isolation is not the way to develop good programming habits and, significantly, college and university computer courses look with great disfavor upon children who’ve done this.
By an odd coincidence, at exactly the same time, I was looking with great disfavor upon university computer courses, and as a result ended up not having an exciting and lucrative career during the bubble. Ah well, back to working alone on programs of ever-increasing complexity: trying to strip just the Single Window Mode out of TBE isn’t going especially well, but it’s teaching me stuff, which seems like a good enough bargain.
