My newLISP article in 2600 Magazine

I've been published again Smile

I wrote an article on a relatively new scripting language called newLISP. Yes, this LISP is still Lots of Information Surrounded by Parentheses. But it's a really neat language for hackers, admins, geeks, and tinkerers. It is a very fast language, it's very easy to learn, and it has very powerful network and remote command execution abilities.

I posted the article online (which is allowed by 2600). I made my code samples downloadable as well.

Enjoy! And pick up the latest 2600 magazine if you feel inclined. My article is on page 32.

Point of trivia: the binding

Point of trivia: the binding of the magazine changed. I noticed right away. My wife (who bought the issue for me and brought it home) though it was different, but didn't notice exactly what...

I'm sure 2600 loves technical articles with practical applications, and newLISP has so many interesting features.

PS: Other point of trivia: Guess whose keyboard it was that Becky gave me when we picked up the servers? It still had a name associated with it over BT before it finalized on my mini... Wink

I noticed the new binding. In the intro they said they changed publishing companies. The old binding was always two staples in the center pages through to the cover. Now it's got a spine like you'd find on Popular Science or reader's digest.

No idea whose keyboard. We all had one, but it's my guess it was Lutz's, mine, or JSF's if you're going to make a big deal out of it.

Not a big deal, just interest

Not a big deal, just interesting. It was Lutz's. I didn't realize that the keyboard kept a record of the owner/user name it's associated with. I'd have kinda assumed it would have been one of the less prominent names from there.
