Historical Technology Books: Computer Gaming World Issue 1.1 (Volume 1, Number 1) (1981) - 14 in a series

Technology isn't just computers, networks and phones. Technology has always been part of the human experience. All of our ancestors have looked for ways to help the survive and do less work for more gain. Archive.org has a host of old technology books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. Many of the technologies discussed within these books are being put to use again these days in the back to the land" and homesteading movements. You might even find something that could address one of your own garden or farm issues, but has been lost to time and history. Enjoy! --Douglas

From the Editor...

 

In recent months I have been encouraged time and again when I see the tremendous interest out there for a magazine on computer gaming. Many people have expressed the view that the time for a magazine on computer gaming is OVERDUE. Hopefully we have corrected that problem.

 

CGW is designed to meet your needs as a computer gamer. Each issue will evaluate computer games, give advice on strategy and tactics, announce new products, and provide a forum for you, the reader, to become active in the rapid nationwide development of the computer gaming hobby.

 

We hope to have a “Letters to the Editor” column beginning with the second or third issue. Please write us and express your thoughts on the articles presented in these pages, and/or your thoughts about the hobby in general. It is my hope that CGW will become a forum for an intelligent dialog between gamers, designers, manufacturers and retailers.

 

The coming explosion in use of personal computers has just begun, we at COMPUTER GAMING WORLD are excited about being a part of it, and are glad that you have joined with us.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
