Here’s an oldie but a goodie, the only letter I ever wrote to DC Comics (back when they had letter columns). This was in response to the Death of Superman, in 1993…
This is a letter that I have been meaning to write for a long time. Now that Superman has died, this is a letter that will never see print. That makes me a little sad; I would have loved to get a letter in a Superman letter column.
WAY back in the day (1987) I got published in a computer magazine for the first time. MICRopendium was the official monthly magazine for the AWESOME TI-99-4/a and its not-at-all awesome successor, the Myarc Geneve. I taught myself to code on the TI-99-4/a and wrote EVERY college paper on that computer using the TI-Writer Word Processor. LOVED that computer. Anyway, someone had asked if there was a way to use the spell-checking program database on the built in RAM disk (512KB) — you read that right, not MB, KB — and GeekBoy (that would be me) had the solution.
