In 2001 I took my 11/73 running 2.11BSD with me to HAL2001 [1]. It was
connected to the network, telnet and FTP wide open, but nobody hacked
the machine. Either people stoped in awe, or they where simply unable
to hack PDP-11 assembler instead downloading the latest Linux root-kit.

Apache? OMG! How will you squeze this pice of bloat into a 16 bit
addres space, even with overlays? There are several "small" http
daemons out there. E.g. thttpd or bozohttpd.

A few thousand hackers camping at a university campus, tents with
computers and everything networked... There is somthing similar going
