Windows 95, quit being whiners. I mean, surely this guy does not regret any of the energy he spent on this... or his "hat"

Thinking about running vorb on one to save costs. Might be a bit slow, and might have to loose some (most) of the old photos. :lol:

:withstupid: The first 800 pages of reamde were vintage Stephenson, then he turned into Tom Clancy.

meh - running stuff on pi is old hat, to earn geek points now you need to go RETRO (just the same as bikes - 6" fullys are passe, the cool kids are rocking steel rigibs)

how about running vorb on a vax 11/760 (under VMS of course), now that would be cool :satan:

If it worked, we wouldn't have jobs.

So we make sure we make everything as buggy as hell, so that we have something to support. Sheesh! lol

Stephenson is for lightweights and wannabes, the real nerds read Greg Egan (and understand the maths) ;)

and crowdsourcing your beta testing is sooo much more fun than shipping products that actually work (hell, look at the sucess Google's had with android - you know it's bad when people's smartphone hard crashes and they don't even blink at pulling the battery to reboot)
