It doesn't seem that terribly long ago (1987?) when Hypercard was launched. Conceptually it was like a management system of web pages before there were really tons of web pages. It was the backing for Myst... provided endless fun in elementary school "computer lab time"...
For you kiddies:
It seems some of the games still exist.. Cosmic Osmo, anyone?
I do believe I have a floppy disc, or an old hard drive, containing my final project back in the day.. a hypercard roman numeral calculator! Duh-duh-duuuuuuh!
Out of perverse curiosity - does anyone still *USE* Hypercard? Perhaps their company wont' give up the juicy calculating bits and they have a "mission critical" machine around being used? How about any great apps they created with hypercard? Fond memories?
A walk through of how it worked..
