The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

Bill Gates and Paul Allen wrote the BASIC for this beast and started a tiny little company called Micro Soft (they had a space in between the words, back then).
