Phosphor Green Color Scheme

With nostalgia apparently in full-effect tonight, here is another post with the retro-green-color-scheme for our enjoyment:



  1. I used to use Emacs on real hardware terminals and generally the modeline was in verse video. I think that looks better.

    Thanks for sharing that memory! :)

    A reversed modeline sounds much easier to distinguish.

  3. One of the terminals we had at our computer club was the classic ADM3A. We also had a variety of other terminals, most of them phosphorous green. Good times. :-)

    If you are still in SG, then next time I’m there the Hokkien Mee is on me!

    Definitely the nostalgia is heavy tonight; perhaps solar flares :).
