Hope everyone is doing well during this COVID-19 pandemic.
I'm just chilling in the tropics doing some electrical engineering and electronic's restoration stuff to pass the time.

This site still has amazing hold on me where I'll see the bookmark in the bar and can never remove it or ignore it.
Glad to see we are still up and running even to this day.

Just checked and yup, been here for 10 years now... where does the time go lol
In answer to recent demands on this topic, the files are not available anymore as the site has been transfered and taken care of.

It is therefore normal that they are not freely reachable.

First post updated accordingly.

Rice Institute Computer-tan: AKA Rice R1
-Source of envy for Whirlwind-tan, surviving a similarly dramatic surgery to her's.
-Dramatically changed appearance in 1966. (Rebuilt with new memory)
-Had a tumultuous childhood, bouncing between Rice, the AEC, NSF, and Brookhaven National Lab. (Funding and decision making bounced around a lot)
-Enjoyed some of the broadest education of an IAS, studying under MANIAC, ILLIAC, IAS, and IBM. (Designers visited and drew on various IAS programs)
-Somewhat logically obsessed, and a heavy math fan. (Early projects involved Boolean logic and mathmatical research)
-Still fun at parties, dumb sense of humor. (Only distinct cultural trait remembered was an operator's annoying sense of humor)
-Kind of shaky on the concept of zeroes. (Had two different methods, toggleable, for floating point zeroes)
-Could tell anyone by their voice. (Did early work on voice recognition)
-Best friends with her younger sister OSAGE.
-Status: Deceased

Physical, 1959-1966: Tall, dark tan, kind of obsessed with light sweaters, capris.  Short bob haircut.

Physical, 1966-1971: About 5' tall, pale, veins occasionally pulse with light, several prominent scars including side of her head to behind the ear, breathes very heavily, hair has grown out.

Sources: A Brief History of the Rice Computer, 1959-1971, Martin Graham Oral History, New Info on the Rice Computers

-Not well liked at home, she spent a lot of time hanging out with her sister R1.
-Self-image issues from the University constantly trying to replace her. (University started trying to replace the home-built program before she was finished)
-Still outlasted her best friend into the mid-1970s before disappearing.
-Did everything from clerical work (University schedules) to medical research.
-Status: Deceased

Physical: Dark straight hair, darker skin tone, big fan of elaborately printed dresses of various colors that aren't too impractical.
