Word Perhect Comes Back to life

I saw an article about a Flash emulator this morning and I was so excited I had to give it a whirl.

The link below is to a thing I made with artist Tomoko Takahashi back in about 2000. It's a word processor made in Flash using drawings that she made - and some fonts I created from her handwriting. It saved things that you wrote to a text file using asp - which no longer functions as you can well imagine!

It was part of her Turner Prize exhibition at the Tate Gallery. The coolest thing was going to the Tate, and getting let in as an exhibitor to reboot the system.

Flash was disabled by major web browsers back in 2020, so Word Perhect has been in storage ever since, but thanks to the Ruffle emulator - - it has come back to life.
