A bit of Hacker History

It's taken me far too long to get these things prepped and posted, so
why not a holiday release? Some historical reading for your post-meal
time on the sofa:
The tl;dr version: I was given some message board dumps from one of
the original hack/phreak scene BBSes, covering a portion of its short
run in 1980-1. That led to obtaining some more, which I've cleaned up
and compiled into a PDF. I feel they're an invaluable insight into
the "state of things" back then, not to mention just a fun read. Some
familiar names in this lot...perhaps even some we know...?
Happy $holiday(*) and enjoy...
