Farewell, Dr. Dobb’s

Dr. Dobb’s, the programming magazine that’s managed to survive for 38 years, is putting its web site into maintenance mode. No new content, no changes, but the site will remain (at least for a while).

dr. dobb’s journal of Tiny BASIC Calisthenics & Orthodontia (with the subtitle Running Light Without Overbyte) started in 1975 as a photocopied publication intended to distribute and cover the recently developed Tiny BASIC. It grew into a sort of standard reference for programmers working with microcomputers but pretty much lost that once the Internet became generally available. Still, it continued to publish (as a digital-only publication) and maintain its web site until now.
