Apologies up front.
I have a (potentially) wonderful PDP-8/e with TU-56 and RK05 just begging
for attention (as soon as I can get ONE of my ASR-33's to behave properly).
I WANT to spend time on that machine. I also have and sbc-6120 I want to get
OS/8 up on for the MARCH show.
Still the "real world" makes demands.
Yet another weekend supporting (gasp) modern systems.
But some of the things that strike me are.....
It STILL takes the same amount of time for a system to boot..
It STILL takes the same amount of time to format a disk..
It STILL takes the same amount of time to install a (basic) OS
It STILL takes the same amount of time to customize the OS
..I can keep ranting...
Amazing, the more things change.the less they do.. [I KNOW the original
saying is different].
