Ended up renting the PT Cruiser a couple of times, while on work trips, and hated them... they really should be called the PT Crapper.
A few of us on the 6th floor of our building felt a little sway. Didn't know what to make of it until I read about it a couple hours later...
I mean really, what's a party without beer?

Probably the most bulletproof (literally, they were built like tanks!) system out there, Cromemco had very good S-100/IEEE-696 systems, running Z-80s and M680x0 processors.
For operating systems, they had CDOS (like CP/M only better) and Cromix, a UNIX-Like system. I have actually used one which also ran AT&T System V UNIX. Unfortunately, they were priced out of the range of most folks.
I still have a ton of documentation and disks in my basement for these beasts!
From the article: VOICEOVER (English) no name given: "In the 70s, the silicone chip became the basis of a new generation of computerized devices .
Following the silicone chip, came games and e-mail, creating a social and industrial revolution.
Wow, I want a computer with one of those silicone chips, mine only has a silicon chip.
There was a longer flyover Tuesday afternoon, I got about 50 photos. Quite impressive, and it's great to see a these planes up close. The other thing they announced was WK2 will not only be used for launching passengers, but will also be able to launch satellites.
I didn't check, but there are probably some videos/photos up at the EAA Airventure websire, www.airventure.org
Hopefully, this will usher in an era of affordable space access.
I really liked the Focus 2001, it's still on my parents computer thanks to a PS/2 -> AT keyboard adapter. On my computer now is a Dell branded Model M keyboard, it's at least 12 years old, and the only keyboard I like better than the Focus. Of course, in order to use the Model M, I need to use a PS/2 -> USB adapter.
This is just poor IT admins, or maybe none at all.
And to those of you who want to blame the bean counters, there are cheap ways of making backups, even if it means manually doing a sqldump to some other server, disk or even a PC with a big hard drive laying around.
There is absolutely no excuse for any server admin not to have tested backups.
Since I'm currently unemployed, if any of you admins need help with setting up adequate backup for your servers, please feel free to hire me!
