A few months ago there was a list of links to classic video game emulators posted.
Very recently, I'm pleased to report, those links all came true
. The Internet Archive bespoke upon aforementioned consoles, computers, and mileposts on our way to the tech utopia of today, (seriously, where's my flying car?) and they asked us to do something: Imagine every computer that ever existed, literally, in your browser
. And it was so.
I have absolutely no affiliation with jscott
, btw. Thought I should disclose that.

... Everyone's favorite soulless cubicle farm, Metacortex
, now has a web presence. You can also visit their strategic ally Underscore Hosting
, and even see a currently functionless homepage for their forthcoming Metadex
product. In fact, you can even check the status of their Greek fabricated-island resort Aquapolis
. Should you need to contact Metacortex or Underscore, their websites offer both e-mail and telephone numbers, both valid.
If the name Metacortex only rings a vague bell, it might help to recall their most, ah, celebrated ex-employee, Thomas Anderson
. (more inside)
