Recently I purchased a keyboard like the one I had when I was but a wee tyke. It can't be a coincidence that shortly afterwards, I found a descendant of the first programming language I wrote actual code in.
Although I can't find a complete history, Runtime Revolution appears to be a direct
derivative of SuperCard. I was amazed
to find the XTalk language community still limping along; even moreso that
SC itself is still being actively developed! I guess proprietary development
environments can still survive a harsh economic winter
Does anyone still have a copy of ... dare I say it ... "Elemental Knowledge"
on some ancient media that we could dust off and update for the new
millennium? (How about New Zork City? I think I have a floppy disk here with
something on it, but I doubt that it's physically survived, and I don't have
a drive that can read it handy.)
