Welcome to Vipers Place

Who is Viper? Gary Conway has been designing software solutions since the 1960's. He built his first computer in 1968, a mainframe that he and a friend built from used IBM parts. They then donated the computer to their high school, Louisville Country Day. He built his first 'PC' on his kitchen table in 1977 using an RCA 1802 microprocessor and an old 9 inch television. The computer had 256 bytes of memory and ran at a blazing 3.4 KHZ. Later he built and added a sound board, full keyboard, a basic interpreter, expanded the memory to 8 KB and added I/O boards for controlling things in the real world.


He has developed software and hardware solutions for numerous large corporations, including NASA, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL), Humana, National Tobacco, Rallys, Circuit City and Maybelline to name a few. He has also developed solutions for countless smaller corporations and individuals over the years.


He is the co-author of the now defacto-standard ZIP file. See the story here
