That’s our boy!

Charles F. Johnson, by using some as yet undiscovered laws of nature, has managed to find the time to be both a professional musician and a professional programmer. In his musical career, he has played with such artists as Chicago, George Duke, Al Jarreau and Stanley Clarke. His programming accomplishments include Mouse-Ka-Mania, Desk Manager, ARC Shell and, along with his partner, John Eidsvoog, G + Plus and MultiDesk. He and John are the owners of CodeHead software.

The pic and caption are from a July 1989 article in ST-Log,  a  tech magazine published by Atari. More articles by our buddy here.

    OK, so you are telling me about reality in Israel. That’s a good one. How many shekels does cottage cheese cost?

      I just read that at the WSJ. It is 8 sheckels. There is some kind of dairy boycott, has to do with price increases and no competition. Seems to be a common breakfast food. Anyway milt may have read the same article in WSJ.

    Somehow I suspected that he hadn’t been studying political theory and critical thinking.

    And why would he bother now, when he can just ban and censor anyone who disagrees with him?

  14. Charles is Like Kos banning people who disagree with him.

    May they both get clap.

    re: #847 Obdicut

    Can you please state who you think has a working intellect, and who doesn’t?

    While you’re at it, you could go back and answer any of the previous questions you cravenly dodged.

    OK, maybe I was being a little generous about the intellects, since you guys have mostly just been cursing me with various epithets. I like Floral Giraffe, so far.

    • Banshee says:

      Careful, Milty. Obdicut gets peeved when you dodge his rhetorical bullets. You really don’t want to see him peeved. It’s like a Bichon Frise with an erection.

    • gizbot7 says:

      “cravenly dodged”

      LOL! That’s hysterical.

  18. Banshee says:

    Of course he would pick a loser platform like Atari. I bet he was really into Betamax, too. Prolly told people for years how it was the better system and all. People who liked VHS were Nazis!

    • dej says:

      He may be a douche, but give him his due. The software was most likely written in assembler, which is/was a pain in the butt. I coded assembler on mainframes for 20+ years. I could Still write some instructions in Hex if I needed to but haven’t in over 10 years.

      Now, just C#, legacy ASP + VB6 and PL/SQL for me.

      I may have had some of his software back in the day. The better system was the Amiga. I had both at one time or another. In their day they were way ahead of the Macs and IBM and its clones.

      • Banshee says:

        I’ll defer. Didn’t ever have the pleasure of finding out the difference.

        It’s too bad the Mouse-Ka-Mania craze had to burn out, though.

  19. Wow hell has frozen over because i agree with you Banshee.

    I don;t understand. I am an Israeli. Who gets to talk about Israelis if I don’t?

    Yes

    BTW Paki, the Biz Markie link from the other day was excellent. Big blast from the past.

    There’s nothing better then warbling “OH BABY YOOOOOU! GOT WHAT I NEEEEEEED” off key with a belly full of beer at an inappropriate time or failing that, at the ball park..

    The best part is a lot of other folks usually join in. 😆

  30. Banshee says:

    Chunk seems to have completely lost any interest in reporting on funky shit that Muslims get up to. Anything Christian? Fine. But it’s odd, for a “reason-based” blogger, never to mention the ongoing beheadings anymore, isn’t it? There was one just the other day in Afghanistan, of a Muzzie who converted to Christianity. Can’t have that, I guess. Guy got what he deserved, right, Chunk?

    I mean, I know Spencer and he had a fight over Pam. I personally think they both have really bad taste in crazy wiminz, and that his liaison with Geller hasn’t done Robert’s rep any good, but hell, I still read Jihad Watch for the lulzy news about our rage-boys of the Muzzie persuasion.

    And there are other sites that serve up fun stuff from the Dar al-Islam.

    I guess Chunk won’t care until maybe a comic book store gets torched.

    • snowcrash says:

      I think he is really afraid of the left continuing to label him as a hate blogger for his coverage of Muslim issues. He foolishly swings all the way to the other end of the spectrum. He can’t find the middle ground on anything.

      • Banshee says:

        Yeah, restrictions (that will be overturned in short order) on drive-through abortions are so totally worse than female genital mutilation, beheadings, and whack jihadis calling for murdering gay people. You picked the right side at last, Chunk-O!

      • PeteP says:

        He doesn’t think beheadings and Muslim terror attacks are newsworthy any more. Besides, the “right-wing” along with their creationist allies are far more dangerous.

As a rule (and I don’t have many) I try to stay out of petty bickering, but quite frankly I think going after someone who is simply trying to be a part of the DoD community in his/her own way is a shitty fucking thing to do.

      • Bunk X says:

        gizbot– While I don’t disagree with you, the repetitive and simplistic rephrasing of “Chuck is a dumbass” gets old. Now if the DoD enthusiast in question began posting things like “Charles Johnson swallows cow magnets so that he can erase hard drives with his gut at county fairs for bucks,” I’d be more lax in my criticism.

        Carry on.

      • gizbot7 says:

        Bunk – I hear ya and think that giving constructive “guidance” doesn’t hurt anyone and a couple people here have done so. 😉 But acting like a dick and pointing out every fucking thing someone says wrong damn near every time they comment is ridiculous and tedious in and of itself. It also has the wondrous effect of making people not want to post here. I give the guy credit for hanging in there despite the bullshit.

      • Bunk X says:

        I’ve seen no one attack as you describe. I stated my honest opinion, as did a few others.

      • gizbot7 says:

        What I have seen is that damn near every time he posts something, someone has something negative to say — specifically either Banshee or Claytonia, sometimes both of them. I mean, the guy apologizes for freaking everything at this point. But if you don’t believe that it’s been a bit much, that’s your prerogative and I’m not going to argue it with you — he’s a big boy and has been handling it himself. However, my opinion of the situation remains unchanged.
