  • Some guy on Reddit found a PDP-8 and an LGP-30 in his grandparents' basement. (Reddit)

    The LGP-30, dating from 1956, is the star in the Story of Mel:
    A recent article devoted to the macho side of programming
    made the bald and unvarnished statement:

    Real Programmers write in FORTRAN.

    Maybe they do now,
    in this decadent era of
    Lite beer, hand calculators, and "user-friendly" software
    but back in the Good Old Days,
    when the term "software" sounded funny
    and Real Computers were made out of drums and vacuum tubes,
    Real Programmers wrote in machine code.
    Not FORTRAN. Not RATFOR. Not, even, assembly language.
    Machine Code.
    Raw, unadorned, inscrutable hexadecimal numbers.
    Directly.
    I didn't know any of these very, very early computers still existed in the wild.


  • Qualcomm has a new Arm CPU. (WCCFTech)


  • Arm wants to kill it. (The Register)

    Arm's lawsuit against Qualcomm appears self-defeating. Don't declare war on your own customers unless... There is no unless. Don't do that.


  • Do you need a PC the size of a box of 3.5" floppies, with three HDMI ports, three USB ports, and dual Ethernet ports? The Gateway Mini PC T8-Pro is exactly that. (Liliputing)

    Though it has as much in common with the original Gateway computer company as a thing does with another thing that it has nothing in common with except the name licensed out for a bit of extra cash.


  • The Overton Window as arbitrage opportunity. (Under Orion)

    Find out what risks people are not permitted to speak of, and hedge against those risks. If speaking of the looming energy crisis is taboo, buy energy stocks. And make out like a bandit.
