INTRODUCING DISCMASTER, the CD-ROM Research Tool!
T E X T F I L E S
On the face of things, we seem to be merely talking about text-based files, containing only the letters of the English Alphabet (and the occasional punctuation mark).

On deeper inspection, of course, this isn't quite the case. What this site offers is a glimpse into the history of writers and artists bound by the 128 characters that the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) allowed them. The focus is on mid-1980's textfiles and the world as it was then, but even these files are sometime retooled 1960s and 1970s works, and offshoots of this culture exist to this day.

     Where are the Files?            Who are You?            Why does this Matter?    
        What was it Like?                       How can I Help?
