rejection letter from RUN magazine, circa 1984The really funny thing about this is that the letter has two typos — the kind you can still see after they’re fixed. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore.

The software review I’d submitted was written using SpeedScript — which I had typed in from the code listing in COMPUTE’s Gazette magazine. But the letter rejecting my article had been created on a typewriter.

(Yeah, OK, so I’m old. My cane is on order.)
