Actual formal title: Prof. Matt Flappy, the Man with the Precisely Partitioned Follicles (or P.M.F.T.M.W.T.P.P.F., which is why his business card resembles a small day-timer calendar).

The Professor’s workin’ up a sweat, toting his bags across the terminal of Charleston, West Virginia’s Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager Airport — named for the famed aviator and test pilot. In his own way, the belt-and-suspenders Professor is just as anachronistic as this former Kanawha Airport atop Coonskin Ridge, for one of his bags contains floppy disks, the other, manuals, power adaptors, and computer connector cables. (To clue you in on just how dated the Professor really is, his floppy disks are all of the 8” flexible vinyl variety.) Furthermore, the Prof.’s wardrobe is all of the checks+paisley+corduroy+plaid+hush puppies variety.

Prof. Flappy is one of the world’s last remaining expert consultants on the inner workings of the Commodore 64, Atari’s 8-bit line of equipment, and the Macintosh 128k. (He is also in great demand by frat houses nationwide, as he can debug any faltering version of Pong.) The Professor is currently considering purchasing one of the ‘new’ zip drives for his home office.
