WARPSTOCK GETS WEBFOOT: OS/2 DUCK ANNOUNCES HE'LL ATTEND, WANTS TIMUR
Webfoot, The OS/2 Duck, has announced he'll attend Warpstock 98 in
Chicago this October.
The prolific OS/2 columnist and quacker-at-large attended last year's
Warpstock, and expects this year's event to be even grander.
I attended all of Timur Tabi's presentations," said The Duck,
"both his Win32-OS/2 main-hall demonstration of converting Windows 95 software
to OS/2 executables, and his TIMER0 technical lecture, which went into overtime
and consumed an entire extra lecture period because he presented so much. Now that's
the kind of stuff that makes this event worth attending! When I see Timur this year,
I'm getting his autograph."
Webfoot is looking forward to even more of what he experienced
at last year's two festive days in California. "There was Dick Goran's REXX
presentation, and Paul Hethmon's email server. The OS/2 BBS and the technical comparison
with NT. The guys from IBM who described the inner workings of the kernel. The vendor
booths, the new product demonstrations and all the discounts. The grab bag of goodies
they handed you as you walked in the door. The hundreds of door prizes given away.
The free lunch on Saturday and the band on Saturday night. I've already registered
for this year's big show. Maybe they'll ask me to be a guest lecturer."
Webfoot, whose monthly column is one of the most popular OS/2 sites
on the 'net, suggests that anyone wanting a mention of their own OS/2-centric home
page pay him a visit at Warpstock and pass along their url. He's always looking
for new sites on which to bestow a few good quacks.
