Submission + - Same binary file on two different architectures? (jmp.no) 1

skurk writes: Is it possible to have a binary file run on two different architectures, without modifications? In this experiment, a binary file is crafted to run on 32-bit x86 and a Commodore 64. Even though this is just a proof-of-concept, can this serve a useful purpose on other platforms?

Commodore 64 Confuses Austrian Police 470

toomanyairmiles writes, "It seems that Wolfgang Priklopil, the communications technician who kidnapped Austrian pre-teen Natascha Kampusch, relied on a Commodore 64 as his primary machine. Interestingly this is presenting some problems to the Austrian computer forensics people. Major General Gerhard Lang of the Federal Criminal Investigations Bureau told reporters it would 'complicate investigators' efforts' and would be difficult to transfer the files to modern computers 'without loss.' Could this be the latest in the criminal world's security strategy? Can we expect to see Spectrums, Archimedes, and Atari STs turning up in police investigations soon?"
