ASCII BBS file of household tips
Merlin Mann | Mar 28 2006
While Googling the best way to fix a slamming door, I came across this great ASCII file of "all-time best hints for making household repairs." It's cribbed from a mid-90s issue of Mother Earth News, and has a bunch of great little tips.
The file's part of the survival section of the awesomely old-school textfiles.com, which is a large collection of old text files from BBSs in the 80s and 90s. So fun. Don't miss the sections on mass media, internet, and anarchy.
OT: Bob O'Lary's Tally-Apple BBS was my first "online" experience back in Tallahassee in the early 90s. Although I wasn't much of a contributor, I did love to download shareware and just marvel at the fact I was sitting on my Mac talking to another computer over a phone line. Viva ZMODEM!
