GIZA POWER PLANT
PYRAMID PULSE GENERATOR
The early 80’s saw the advent of personal computers, and I became sucked up into the new scene. I started writing small programs in “basic” language. This eventually ended up with the creation of a graphics manipulation program written in machine code.
Machine code reads, writes, and manipulates 1’s and 0’s . . . . pure logic with no room for error. Raw code creations formed as I was trying to drift off to sleep. The numbers become a visual mental entity only to be captured by writing on paper. This flooding of the brain with flying binary numbers changes synaptic nerve patterns forever.
It was an obsession. Late nights and way too much caffeine. The program, “Characters Unlimited”, came to life. It and the manual were sent off to the software publishers where it was accepted! A firm in San Diego was going to market it. Then the software market for the particular machine went soft. Both went down in blaze of glory. I never wrote another program.
Off on another tangent? Maybe.
Obsession to the point of completion. Creating with pure logic. Seeing the vulnerability of hardware and software. Loss of faith in the fragile high tech machinery. On to building a Pyramid Machine.
