“In 1976, Atari approached the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit System (The BART), and struck a deal allowing them to place one of the units at BART’s Powell Street Station.” (via The Atari Arcade Theatre Kiosk – The Arcade Blogger )
@eurasierboy I have a special dislike for visible @-key. It seems convenient, but it’s right next to the spacebar so it’s easy to hit accidentally. When you do this in a Twitter client like Twitterrific, it immediately sets off an expensive username search process that interrupts typing and compounds errors. So if you’re going to use it, make sure it doesn’t trigger a costly network or CPU process.
“The password must be exactly 8 characters long. Two of the same characters sitting next to each other are considered to be a set. No sets are allowed. Other words that cannot be used are Texas, child, and the months of the year. One way to create a password is creative spelling and substitution.”
