Over a year ago I asked for some help on getting a PDP-8/e EAE
functional. There was an immediate response and I got a later version
M8330 that was EAE compatible. Thanks to those who helped.
In the spring I got a version of SPACEWAR to work. I also played with a
clock for the point plot display. I made some videos, but didn't do
anything with them at the time. I was not satisfied with the quality.
Nonetheless, today I added them to my web pages.
The clock video on the VC8 page is much more dynamic. I used some unix
font tools and a little bit of python to make bitmap images of the
numerical characters. These were then converted to PAL8 source. The
hands are drawn using the Bresenham algorithm.
Since it is the close to the new year, I want to thank everyone for the
knowledge that I have gained from listening here. When we don't stumble
over our own narrow mindedness and biases we are a pretty knowledgeable
bunch. Thanks again to all...
PS: I tried the videos using firefox and internet explorer in windows
and firefox in linux. I am curious if there are problem, but please
don't turn this into some kind of off topic discussion.
