21:55 <efc> oops.

22:15 <Patriot> now you done it

22:16 <Patriot> you joined a distributed computing channel

22:16 <Patriot> now you will have to buy tons of new hardware and cruch for the betterment of mankind

22:18 *** efc386 has joined #boinc

22:18 <efc386> bleh

22:23 <PovAddictW> lol, 386

22:23 <PovAddictW> what OS do you have in there?

22:24 <efc> thats DOS

22:24 <efc> at times i've run win3.1 or NT351 on it

22:24 <PovAddictW> I have Windows 95 if you want it :)

22:24 <PovAddictW> does 95 support 386 actually?

22:25 <efc> yes

22:25 <efc> Have done that too, i think

22:25 <efc> but DOS is.. "usable"

22:25 <efc> i used to run some linuxi on it but not in a long time

22:27 <PovAddictW> modern linux kernel dropped 386 support

22:27 <efc> the one i used was 2.0 or pre 2.0

22:27 <efc> that was on a different computer, an sx-16, even slower than this one

22:28 <Patriot> wow

22:28 <Patriot> I just finished building a new mini puter

22:28 <Patriot> I don't think I am old enough to qualify for playing with a 386

22:30 <efc386> eventually i hope to set up something better but for now this is is, dx-33, 32 megs of ram

22:30 <efc386> boot off CF card

22:32 <efc386> this dos client stuff should be able to run on an original IBM PC

22:32 <efc386> but you'dneed to add some RAM

22:33 <efc386> mostly i stay out of the 16 bit computers. i'd play with one if I had it though

22:33 <efc386> wouldn't mind having a PDP-11..

22:34 <PovAddictW> something I really want to play with some day

22:34 <PovAddictW> is a real teletype

22:34 <PovAddictW> use a modern Linux on a real tty with paper

22:34 <efc386> That would be neat

22:35 <PovAddictW> like the founding fathers used to invent unix :)

22:35 <efc386> A /dev/drum would be nice

22:36 <efc386> think only bsd might still have that

22:37 <efc> Could make one with a roll of glow-in-the-dark material, a diode and some photocells..

22:38 <Patriot> lol

22:38 <PovAddictW> haha

22:38 <PovAddictW> reminds me of that real turing machine

22:38 <efc> good use for an old washing machine or dryer

22:38 <PovAddictW> used a marker to write actual zeros and ones

22:38 <efc> well.. not good

22:38 <Patriot> my classmates thought I was a kissass when I was asking questions when the prof was going over archetecture history...

22:38 <PovAddictW> efc: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3keLeMwfHY

22:38 <Romulus> Title: A Turing Machine - Overview - YouTube (at www.youtube.com)

22:38 <Patriot> I just found it bloody interesting

22:39 <Patriot> still do

22:39 <efc> the old IO devices are fascinating..

22:39 <PovAddictW> efc: it doesn't cheat by storing the tape contents in the controller RAM, it really does read off the tape

22:39 <efc> Where do you buy infinite length tapes?

22:39 <PovAddictW> lol

22:40 <PovAddictW> it's a limited turing machine :)

22:40 <PovAddictW> it's a thousand-foot roll though

22:40 <efc> A thousand feet should be enough for anyone.

22:43 <efc386> that's enough of this thing.
