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
For bonus points, someone do this on a Raspberry Pi.
One of the first things I did with my Pi was hook it up to a VT101 terminal and run Colossal Cave Adventure and Dungeon (the free version of Zork) on it. But there was still a modern Linux (or at least as modern as SlackwareARM gets) running underneath of them, so it's nowhere near as interesting as booting directly into the game.
An article for WinNT turning 20, but nothing for Slackware when it did the same 10 days ago? What is wrong with you, Slashdot?
Wait, don't answer that...
My PIN is 9999, it'll be the last number it could possibly try!
And I'm sure in the 20 hours it takes to get that far, someone will notice and say "hey, Bob, why is there an android trying to break into your Android phone?"
