Yes, thank you. Sorry, I thought it was obvious.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The first Altos were built as research prototypes. By the fall of 1976 PARC’s research was far enough along that a Xerox product group started to design products based on their prototypes. Ultimately ~1500 were built and deployed throughout the Xerox Corporation, as well as at universities and other sites. The Alto was never sold as a product but its legacy served as inspiration for the future.
With the permission of the Palo Alto Research Center, the Computer History Museum is pleased to make available, for non-commercial use only, snapshots of Alto source code, executables, documentation, font files, and other files from 1975 to 1987. The files are organized by the original server on which they resided at PARC that correspond to files that were restored from archive tapes. An interesting look at retro-future."

$50 sound card produces better audio than a 50 cent onboard chip.... You don't say.
Their bootloader code was stolen from two open source projects which they repackaged and relabeled without attribution or source. That's pretty shitty IMHO.
I assume they'll be able to fix it via a microcode patch. Intel had to learn that the hard way...
A logical conclusion is that the iPhone is not good for wireless carriers
Good. Screw them. Not a single tear shed from me.
Took all of a 5 seconds to find the article on C|net's own site to find this which shows Siri on a 3GS and 4:
But I'm sure you've heard of Google too. Derp.
Or at least not the whole story. It has been shown already that a jailbroken iPhone 4 can run Siri just fine.
Yep. Hot grits and all.
Been here from the beginning, back in the Chips & Dips days. Thanks for everything. Great work!
Only problem is I think Carmack is more interested in rocket engines than video games these days. Honestly, I can't blame him.
Wow what a load of flamebait. What kind of conversation do you expect this will turn into with such a leading premise?
Slash can do better... (but I've been around long enough not to get my hopes up).
I'm curious how long before the Defense Department wants to add Watson to Echelon. This is just the kind of thing that would be perfect for trying to understand context in communications to determine the difference between a normal conversation and one of terrorists...
Here I thought this was going to be about Nintendo Thumb.
