HAPPY Y2K8!

Welcome to Show #106!  This week's topic: Random Bits (a variety show)!

JoyBubbles, one of the first phone "phreaks", passed away in August of 2007.  Here's a New York Times article about him, as well as the Wikipedia page.
See Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of electronic TV, in his only personal TV appearance (warning, YouTube video will start playing immediately).  Here's the Wikipedia page on Farnsworth - he was one impressive inventor!
The SIMH simulator can simulate a lot of systems!  Definitely worth a look...
Here is the home page of RetroChallenge - a way for retro enthusiasts to challenge themselves (and share their experience with other like-minded folks).  This year's "Winter Warmup" is happening right now!
