with the incap fixation. Some will know it from the cryptic ..SofMac
in the bottom right of telesoftware pages. What? You went and
made a cup of coffee while it was downloading? Shame.
SoftMachinery existed sporadically
before Acorn, but it grew to a massive four people. It
even had a technician but he got car sick and left.
SoftMachinery was the company behind
The Gnome @ Home (TG@H) written by Gnomey, T'GG
and TMWFK. SoftMachinery did do other things, mostly
to make money.
SoftMachinery designed nearly every
Prestel modem in the UK, helped Acorn win the BBC
Micro contract, got them to put red functions buttons on
the Beeb, and designed the Teletext Decoder.
If you used
a Beeb for Prestel you used software written by
SoftMachinery. Everywhere. The terminal software, the
Acorn modem ROM, most of the updating of Prestel pages. Gnomey
even wrote a game.
of SoftMachinery played Essex MUD. Only one became
a wizard. And loved a witch.
the incap fixation, SoftMachinery is a sensible company.
Prepare to be uncled.
