No need to sign up - hit the pavement.

You do the marketing and then farm out the tech work to India - that's how it's done these days. Although, people are starting to figure out that they can just cut out the American salesman and go directly to India and save all the American overhead and commissions that just pay for the fancy suits, Exlax watches, and huge CEO salaries.

Exlax watches? Remind me to never ask you what time it is...

Emulation (Games)

Emulation For Preservation of Digital Artifacts 81

An anonymous reader writes "Author Salman Rushdie donated his papers and notes to Emory University a while ago. Not surprisingly, many of Rushdie's original notes, drafts, and correspondence existed in electronic form. Rather than printing them out or converting them to other formats, archivists at the university created an emulated image of Rushdie's old computer, complete with old software. Researchers visiting the archive can read his email in Eudora and his Stickies notes, or read drafts of his books in ClarisWorks. When you leave your legacy to future generations, would you like a virtualized copy of your personal system to be included?"
