BBS inventor dies

Recently, it was reported that Randy Susi, the inventor of Internet BBS, died on December 10 at a hospital in Chicago at the age of 74.
At the end of January 1978, Sue joined an early home computer enthusiast club called the Chicago area computer enthusiast Exchange Association (CACHE). He and another club member, an IBM engineer named ward Christensen, have been discussing the idea of a new computer information exchange tool, but have no time to develop it seriously.
Then a snowstorm hit the Great Lakes, and Chicago was covered with thick snow.
With the city closed by snow, Christensen called sue and said they finally had enough time to build a new information exchange system. Christensen suggested they get help from the rest of the club, but, as he recalled in the interview, Sue told him it was a mistake because other people’s participation would only slow down the project.
“Forget about the club, it’s just a model of committee management,” Christensen recalled, adding that sue thought she was a self-taught computer technologist who was used to making quick decisions. “It’s just me and you. I’ll make hardware, you’ll make software. “
The idea is to build a central computer where club members can connect their own computers and telephone lines, which is equivalent to an electronic version of a cork bulletin board on the wall of a grocery store where anyone can post paper flyers.
Two weeks later, their BBS system came into operation and the club began to exchange information about meetings, new ideas and new projects. Christensen said. “The forum is all about computers.”
At first, Susi suggested that they call it “computer elite exchange project”, but they finally chose “computer bulletin board system”, or “CBBs”.
In the late 1970s and 1980s, with their BBS system spreading through business magazines and word-of-mouth, fans all over the country set up their own online forums to provide rich content from real-time chat rooms to video games. These early services are pioneers in global social media services such as twitter, Facebook and Youtube.
“Everything we communicate with others online can be traced back to Randy and his bulletin board,” said Jason Scott, a computer history archivist who produced a documentary about the birth of online forums. “The only difference is that now everything has become smoother and simpler.”
Randy John SUSE was born on January 27, 1945 in Skokie, Illinois, about 20 kilometers north of downtown Chicago. His father, Milland, was a police officer in Lincoln wood nearby, and his mother was a nurse.
After two years in the Navy and graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Sue held a variety of technical positions in the city, including at IBM and zenith.
Like Christensen, he joined the new Chicago Area Association of computer enthusiasts in the summer of 1975. This is one of many “do it yourself” computer clubs springing up in the United States.
SUSE and Christensen developed their bulletin boards on a personal computer called the S-100. After adding a modem that can send and receive data over a phone line, Sue soldered together additional hardware that automatically rebooted the machine and then loaded the software developed by Christensen whenever someone dialed in.
“Randy was built almost from scratch,” Christensen said, adding that the device looked crude, as if it were a combination of gum and cables.
Christensen offered to run the system at his home in Dalton, Illinois. But Sue, who lives in wrigleyville, Chicago, insists on keeping it in his basement so that anyone in the city can dial up without paying for a long-distance call.
When they shut down the BBS system in the 1980s, its single phone line had connected more than 500000 phones.
Later, Sue has built a bigger BBS system, called “Chinet”, which connects to the Internet through satellite signals. At that time, the Internet was so small that other users could download the whole thing to his machine in one night. Others can browse the global data collection, including the new CBBs, through 22 phone lines plugged into a row of modems.
Some people called in from as far away as Australia and Singapore. Sue’s son Ryan remembers hearing the modem “whine” day and night, “and” in the end, it just turned white noise, “he said.
In addition to her son and daughter, Kelly, Sue has another daughter, Christine, and three grandchildren. His marriage to Agnes crook and dawn Hendrix ended in divorce.
40 years after its launch, a version of souse CBBs is still running on a computer, accessible to anyone from a laptop or smartphone. This month, the bulletin board announced the death of sue.

Memories of Campus

Pick up the red kapok, sniff the fragrance, led me to precipitate in the heart of the memories.
—— Notes
Stepping into the warm campus, 广州桑拿the morning light bathes my whole body and kisses the earth. Lightweight birds absorb the nectar of flowers deliciously, the bright national flag flutters with the wind, the kapok tree hangs clusters of bright red flowers at the school gate, the broad basketball court and the football field intersperse on the left side of the school gate. At first sight, the students’vigorous figures seem to be vivid, and some of them are on the basketball court. Fighting, some sweating and galloping along the long runway…
In the most valuable campus life in life, we work together, strive hard, appreciate the charm of flowers blooming and falling, praise the efforts to create brilliance, time is running fast, white. What storms we have not experienced, what difficulties we have not solved together, what joys we have not shared, what sorrows we have not shared? Years of indifference and ruthlessness have taken away our past, but what we can not take away is our unity and perseverance. Looking back, the dream-like memories are so fragrant that I would like to enter the purple dream, the dream lingering in my heart, your angel-like faces, the heroic figure…
The most memorable thing is our head teacher, who is kind-hearted and sincere. She is our best teacher! You always pass on what you have learned without reservation through your heart; you always say 桑拿广州that any questions you don’t understand should be asked me; you can always lead the atmosphere in the classroom, lead our thoughts and roam the mystery of mathematics. The unpredictable sea of knowledge…
You are so popular. Even after class is over, your desk is always crowded with students who come to communicate and study, some ask learning questions, some just come to disturb the situation, and some help you beat your back. Even if the bell rings, there are still so many students at your desk! Only your graceful and moving tone: “Classmates, go back to class!” I know your heart is beautiful!
You are so friendly. Everywhere on campus is your friendly voice and shadow. At the school sports meeting, there will always be some students who will be injured carelessly. When you see that scene, you always feel the pain of gripping your heart. You always shush and ask for warmth and send charcoal in the snow. In the classroom, there are always some “sleeping fairies”, tireless teachers, you will be warmly reminded again and again until they wake up from their sleep, give full face, without losing dignity. Teacher, your warm reminder is so reasonable and understanding!
You are so… So…
One day, the nightmare came to you and us. 桑拿佛山You can’t teach us any more because of your work. The bitter pain is hard to say! The clear sky of ten thousand miles turned into a cloudy haze, and the students were reluctant to part with you. On the day of separation, they all went to your office to talk about their previous disrespect for you and poured out their right opinions. You reluctantly how many sincere expression, with tears to explain everything and your separation. You are still so indifferent, we know, your heart is crying, forcing, forcing. All that remains is memories, your kindness to others, your sincerity and selflessness… No matter how many beautiful words you have, you will never be missed.
Teacher Lin, the memories you bring us are sweet and astringent. We will treasure the brochure that records you and me in our hearts! In our spare time, we will glance over the memories of the purple strands like the red dust in our hearts! _

Families have good mothers

From the beginning of my memory, I found that my mother was a person who did not care much about life. She always forgot to pick me up because she was too busy with her work. I stood in front of the big iron gate of the kindergarten waiting for my mother. Looking up at the hot sun outside,桑拿佛山 I narrowed my eyes, and tears of sunshine came up. My aunt asked me with concern if I wanted to call my mother or send me home. I shook my head and stubbornly walked into the scorching sunshine with my little schoolbag. From then on, I never expected anybody to pick me up. When the children were picked up by their parents one after another, I put up my umbrella and started walking alone. My aunt asked me where my mother was. I said that she often forgot to pick me up and watched my aunt spit out her tongue. I walked home by myself unconcerned.
Yes, my mother has a lot of forgetfulness, so I have to remember everything by myself. Sometimes I write in a small book and cross out one thing when I finish it. Even sometimes, I have to remember something for her.
That day, my mother changed the sheets and put them in the washing machine. Then she muttered, “Well, first, wash them several times, three times; then change the water, wash them again, and then dehydrate them.” With that, she poured some detergent in, picked up the bag and went away. I ran over to see that the switch of the washing machine had not been pressed yet. I had to turn on the washing machine with my neck up while recalling my mother’s words. When I finally aired the sheet that I could hardly hold, my mother came back and said, “Ah, I haven’t changed the washing machine yet!” When she saw that the clean sheet had been aired on the balcony, she took a long breath and said, “Good boy, you can share half of our housework in the future. “!”
Mother not only has no memory, but also a little lazy. When I went out with her, I prepared my luggage the night before.桑拿广州 She never took anything with me. Once we went to Laohekou. When we went out, the sun was shining and it rained heavily as soon as we got to the station. I explained that the weather forecast clearly said there was no rain. Mother went out and bought two umbrellas. When she handed them to me, she said, “This money has to be deducted from your pocket money!”
Mother often asked me to do adult things. She would let a child go to the ATM beside the bank to deposit and withdraw money on the grounds of being too tired. She would give me money to help her buy things. She would let me go to other people’s houses instead of her and tell her something, and then bring her the reply. I often hear people say to my parents, “Your children are like little adults.” I also feel that I am mature very quickly. I also think that mother is a child, and I am her mother.
Since I am a parent, I have nothing to complain about. The night before I went to the summer camp, I got everything ready and went to bed. Suddenly I heard a small noise. I crept past and saw my mother checking my schoolbag under the lamp. She looked at her father as carefully as she did and said, “How can a pair be enough if my daughter forgot to bring her shoes?” Father said, “广州桑拿You’re so strange, just bring them to her.” Mother carefully pulled up her bag and said, “How can we do that? We can’t let her depend on others for everything. If we forget, let her suffer a loss once. Next time, we will learn a lesson.” Dad closed his eyes and laughed, “It’s hard to find a mother like you with a lantern. From the time her daughter went to kindergarten, you let her go home alone and follow her behind secretly, and make her a little adult. What’s more?”My mother whispered a word that made me cry.”Someday she’ll leave us and face it all alone.” At that moment, tears mingled with love and gratitude wantonly crossed my face.
I walked back to the room in silence, and at that moment I felt I really grew up a lot.
