Xephon

Postby Quasar » Wed Mar 16, 2011 9:59 am

What is(was) Xephon? It appears to be a magazine that used to get published, and contained excellent tips, code snippets, tune-ups etc. Are there any magazines published today on the lines of Xephon?

Can any Grumpy Old Dinosaur(GOD) tell me about Xephon was all about?

Thank you very much.

I thought alot of the Xephon stuff found a home at the wonderful cbt http://www.cbttape.org/
If the code hasn't been changed, why is the LKED date today?

A quick search in the internet will answer most of your questions. I wrote several articles for Xephon, which was fun and also payed off. We have several tools that we use from those booklets.

Isn't this the name of the randomizer routine in IMS? Nice ID!

Thank you very much.
