Release Notes
Ever wonder what fun things you could do with your PC, aside from playing games?
Barry and Marcia Press offer some suggestions. These involve integrating your PC
in some ingenious fashion to your surroundings. Quite distinct from running
games or surfing the web. Actually, while they deal with the latest PCs, there
is a definite retro flavour to this book. You see, before the web arose, most
PCs were standalone, or perhaps connected to a LAN if the PCs were in a
workplace. But home PCs were usually on their own lonesome selves. Plus, the
games of that era lacked the intensive graphics and complexity of logic of
today\'s offerings. So quite often, PCs were used by hobbyists who were hardware
buffs. This goes all the way back to the Homebrew Computer Club of San Francisco
in the 1970s. So if you try some of the book\'s projects, like monitoring your
fish tank or your fridge or freezer, or making a control centre for model
trains, you are actually indulging in an \'old school\' ethos.
