Domesday Project

Came across a description of the BBC Domesday Project for no particular reason than I wondered what had happened to the blokes that presented the BBC program on computers in the 80s when I were a lad.

I was in first or second year when our school did our bit on the locality to the South West of Glenrothes, and we packed into the Glenwood High School mini bus and did our research for the project which put all the data onto Laser Disc. How high tech!

Talking about old computer programs, do you remember a radio programme presented by Barry Norman that covered the early days of computers? I remember a programme that talked about ‘Rabbits’ which were self reproducing programs. Sounds like a virus to me.
