Cool Stories

This is a neat story. It's about how the Graphing Calculator software for Mac OS was written. Namely, after the project was cancelled, the programmer started sneaking into Apple to get it done. See, *that* is cool. That is dedication. And that's loving what you do. He wasn't getting paid or anything, he was living off of savings and doing this full-time. How cool is that? Not to mention the fact that the resulting application is really really cool.

I particularly like this bit:
"We wanted to release a Windows version as part of Windows 98, but sadly, Microsoft has effective building security."
