Welcome to Update!

Update is a club for everybody who loves computers, in Uppsala and the whole world. We do stuff with computers of all kinds, be it hardware, software, modern computers, historic computers, different architechtures, Unix/Linux, multiuser systems, programming and other things.

Our premises at Polacksbacken is called T-salen (as in terminal room) and this is where you can hang out, drink coffee, eat, listen to music, study, and – naturally – fiddle with computers. On our terminals you can log into our own servers, or those of the IT department, and you are very welcome to sit back in our beautiful orange couch (of circa 1971) and use your own laptop.

We also arrange lectures and exhibitions, work on various projects, and we have a large collection of new and old computers, components, documentation and software.

Updatering: "The evolution of TECO and EMACS – hands-on demo" by Lars Brinkhoff (ICtech)
The Emacs text editor has long been an important tool among programmers, and has a long and rich history. I will talk about the development of the TECO and Emacs line of editors throughout history. The emphasis is on practical demonstration of programs found through software archaeology. True to form, the bulk of the presentation will be broadcast using ancient technology.
