The operating system code that implemented this file system was a drastically simplified version of the present scheme. One important simplification followed from the fact that the system was not multi-programmed; only one program was in memory at a time, and control was passed between processes only when an explicit swap took place. So, for example, there was an iget routine that made a named i-node available, but it left the i-node in a constant, static location rather than returning a pointer into a large table of active i-nodes. A precursor of the current buffering mechanism was present (with about 4 buffers) but there was essentially no overlap of disk I/O with computation. This was avoided not merely for simplicity. The disk attached to the PDP-7 was fast for its time; it transferred one 18-bit word every 2 microseconds. On the other hand, the PDP-7 itself had a memory cycle time of 1 microsecond, and most instructions took 2 cycles (one for the instruction itself, one for the operand). However, indirectly addressed instructions required 3 cycles, and indirection was quite common, because the machine had no index registers. Finally, the DMA controller was unable to access memory during an instruction. The upshot was that the disk would incur overrun errors if any indirectly-addressed instructions were executed while it was transferring. Thus control could not be returned to the user, nor in fact could general system code be executed, with the disk running. The interrupt routines for the clock and terminals, which needed to be runnable at all times, had to be coded in very strange fashion to avoid indirection.

No, idiot, only the NORTH end of a magnet increases entropy. The south end decreases it.

I've got a dos2unix script on my computer where the file date is Apr 20 1994,
so the script is at least 19 years old, and more likely it's from the late 80s.

Why are you wallowing in the past?

Actually they seized the girls due to their involvement with the radioactive meth being made by Heisenberg in a near by town.

It's a good thing it wasn't radioactive speed because then they wouldn't have been able to locate it.

And if they did locate it, they would no longer no whether it was speed.

Fellow, he shoulda downloaded Open Office from the git-go.

Somewhat off-putting but entertainement enough on a blowy snowy Sunday. I do agree with Brandon, though. Best under the radar troll nominee...

B_E_S,

I see you are getting stuck with rsa keygen, so why don't you just exchange 4096 bit keys with plain text TFTP over UDP? If you use a broadcast MAC address then you don't need to get an IP address with DHCP first. Anyways BOOTP is better. Just make sure to prepend good DNS entries in dhclient.conf.

That would then let you switch windows authentication to a mysql database with manilla folders on your desktop. And if you added an EIA TIA serial connection to a servo motor on the coffee maker, you could ping yourself a cup of coffee.

But first things first. Better to stick with tried and true ASM on MC68000 because you don't need all those extra address and data registers. Just program more efficiently and remember the stack is your friedn! Do BEQ or BNEQ or jump register or whatever they call it these days and all your Windows XP / OpenBSD problems will be behind you.

Good luck!

when one of those came off the printer, everyone in the room looked up (and it was a large room)

it's amazing how primitive that code is

This was written shortly before the epoch. It will need one slight change to account for Fortran I/O but the algorithm will exactly solve your problem. You will need to modify both the text and the output association.

BASIC or VB ???

READ5,L,(NAME(J),J=1,20)
5 FORMAT(I2,20A1)
K=1
7 IF (NAME(K).EQ.AST) GO TO 8
K=K+1
GO TO 7
8 K=K-1
etc

This is early, badly written, FORTRAN
-no comments
-gotos instead of do loops
-lousy variable names (misleading even)
-nested implied do
-illogical data statement organization
-out of date sequence labels

Just install Windows 8 and get a touch screen while ur at it.

Problem solved.
