Proper Publishing

Welcome to the Proper Publishing web site. Founded in 1984 and active on the Internet since 1993, Proper Publishing has created many books and newsletters. We still do many things, but making this web site exciting is not one of them.

If you are looking for Paul Hoffman's blog, it's called LookIt.

If you are looking for Proper Records (a British record label who happens to represent many artists I like), you want to go to, not here.

Things From the Past

If you came here for the Internet Computer Index, the sad news is that it is gone. In fact, it has been gone for almost 15 years, so if you came here through a link for the Internet Computer Index, you now know that the person or company who is maintaining that link hasn't updated that list for many years. Thus, you should be skeptical of their archiving skills.

We had information about running NetBSD 1.5 under Vitual PC 4 for the Macintosh, but have removed it because it is no longer relevant to either newer versions of NetBSD or Virtual PC.
