This is conworld-related, but it's for a conworld I wrote about during my childhood which has nothing in common with the fantasy world I write about today .... other than that I allow it to "borrow backwards" from my recent writing to get names, maps, and a few other background elements.
I may have posted this here before, but I couldnt find it, and I have updated the page recently, so Im posting it again. It's the story of two rival nations and their respective nationalized computer industries ... each nation had only one company, one operating system, one programming language, etc. It is set in the far future, but in a world whose computer technology is comparable to Earth around the year 2000 ... since I wrote most of this down a long time ago, I only wrote about what I knew from that time ... so there are no smartphones, touchscreens, etc.
The top half of the page is my story. The bottom half is my scratchpad, where I put ideas that I've remembered that may or may not fit canonically into the story.
I may post an illustrated version of this on my website, with command prompts, web browsers, etc .... because it would probably not require much effort on my part to do so. This would make it clearer which side is which, because I could more easily use colors, and the illustrations would make it clear as well. As it stands right now, I dont expect readers to remember that Lilahaa is the "good" side and Kulapila is the "bad" side because the names are both taken from the same language and neither is overtly meaningful to an English reader ... it's probably easier to remember Camia and Wamia, so I keep using both sets of names throughout the story. I have a CSS template that would work well for this type of website writeup but I haven't even begun drawing images etc.
Edit: hmm okay this *will* take a lot of effort, actually .... so no illustrations soon .... i'll let you guys know. This projects makes me think of TempleOS but my illustrations, if I ever do get there, will be a lot more graphically rich than TempleOS
I'll take the theses, and you can have the thoses.
