I often enjoy my freedom to study program's “source code” by diving through its history. There seems to be no no authoritative source for GCC releases between 0.9 beta and gcc-1.35 (except a gcc-1.30.atari). Where did it go?
Well, the '70s Mark 60 CAPTOR comes pretty close
The faster they can blow through their dictionary the better. If 24 of these Advanced Persistent Chinese crackers get born every day going after me, and they can blow through their dict. in an hour I'll have 24 of them to deal with a day. If I make them spend 2 years doing it, then I'll have to deal with over 9000 knocking on my door.
Nobody gives a shit about these safeguards, now get with the program and find a pretext to invade the place already.
The ECB can create euros out of thin air, how on earth will it ever become unsolvent?
Not only are we not getting any closer, it is not going to happen. There will always be something claiming a monopoly on violence demanding a pile of certain trinkets from you, trinkets only they can produce. Like someone said a long time ago
Currently using the 2700 c-2, none of the advanced features ever get in my way, it survives kids throwing with it and has great battery life.
Open source might have seemed like a good idea at the time. Maybe the arguments 20 years ago convinced people this was going to be safe. History has shown otherwise.
Oh sod of with this interactive editing nonsense, real men just cat>file.
Connection->ssh->tunnels, works like a charm.
But any adult OS has a terminal emulator built in.
And they all suck hairy donkey balls.. You know you have been using PuTTY too long when..
You LOL at all the post about www.chiark.greenend.org because you know how to blindly download the last version from the.earth.li.
The first thing you do on a brand new Mac is downloading VirtualBox and a warezed TinyXP just to run PuTTY.
You do the same on any fresh unixbox just to ssh into the host because you can't stand the behaviour of the native terminal emulator.
Can give a 20 minute speech on how PuTTY-on-Ubuntu/Mac/whatyouhave is Not The Same Thing
You pranked friends with a trojaned version in the previous century.
The linux kernel got out in '90, the lawsuit wasn't until '92.
By doing the same Jolitz did, port the more portable 4.3-Reno release. Not as much fun as writing your own kernel from scratch. Reno would have been available through his University. Anyway, the BSD kernel was already a spectacular success well before Linus started writing his kernel.
Because Theo is an asshole obviously. Then again, I consider the BSD kernels a spectacular success just as well. A big part of the internet as we know it was built on VAXen running 4.x BSD long before Linus started working on a kernel.
