Even More Authoritative Source


When I was interviewed by Guardian Technology, I said that back in the day we connected to the ARPAnet via the University of Kent. I then got an email from Roy Trubshaw saying it wasn't Kent, it was Imperial College in London.

I've now received an email from another stalwart of the Essex University Computer Society back in the late 1970s, Brian Mallett. He says we're both wrong and it was University College London. I'm inclined to believe him because he can remember the login command. It was CON WIV XYZLUM.

Some people were just born to be hackers.
