A great day in Arlington

reunionThough it lacks a lot of the swing of the original, 'twill serve. Gary Long and Greg Lupfer rounded up two dozen of their former staff for a reunion. These are folks that worked for Lupfer & Long, Inc. and/or L&L Software and/or L&L Products in the late 1970s into the mid 1980s. The various companies operated out of McLean, Va., and Hanover, N.H., providing professional services and off-the-shelf software products for accounting and general database applications. Our computing platforms included the mainframes of the day under timesharing; in the 1980s, we moved onto minicomputers from Digital Equipment, Prime, Wang, and Hewlett-Packard. Remnants of the companies made the transition to desktop computing and PCs toward the end of the decade.
