I believe the BBB cpu is 64bit
The processor in the BBB has a Cortex-A8 core. It's nicer than the processor in the RasPi in just about every way, but still only 32-bit.
I installed SlackwareARM on my BBB; I don't really think 'port' is the right word to use, as all I really did was compile a kernel. And even then, I could have copied one from another distro...
Well, it'd be a strange game if the only winning move is not to play.
Presumably the same one that designed the air shield for planet Druidia.
I can watch The Simpsons from 30 blocks away!
I watched all three films over the weekend. I even quoted Marty from the first film (admittedly a lesser-known line than the one in the subject) on Slashdot, but no one noticed
What the hell is a jiggawatt?
I've got no time for blinking lights either. I'm too busy doing grown-up stuff like sequencing LEDs with an Arduino.
Looking at my UID: no, he's not
I'm thinking of it (using https://github.com/dwelch67/raspberrypi as a tutorial), but seeing that I just got around to writing "Hello, world!" in an x86 boot sector a few weeks ago (and that's cheating since I'm able to use the BIOS), I might be a while
I can attest that Crystal Head is full of spirits and energy. I'm sure with enough exposure to it I'd feel vibrations, but that might counteract any healing powers it might have.
We don't need no stinking badgers!!!!
Thanks! I agree about the coolness factor. (The Pi is easier to obtain now, but maybe in 35 years a working one will be more interesting.) The only reason I have the VT101 is because a friend, who was working as a research assistant at a university at the time, cleaned his office and left it sitting in the hallway to be trashed before I saw it and asked if I could keep it.
I should install SIMH on the Pi and get Adventure and Dungeon running in something resembling their original forms. Plus it would amuse me to have a DEC mainframe emulated on something smaller than a hard drive, attached to a real DEC terminal
