Tales From The Dork Web 24 looks at the heirloom computer, a family computer made from recycled parts with a 100 year lifespan.
@stevelord Thanks for the mention at the bottom. It's funny, as I was reading it I was already considering linking to it somewhere on OpGuides. Great writing as always!
@stevelord I really enjoyed this, and I'm looking forward to following along as this develops further.
@stevelord it’s a great issue and although I don’t agree with everything, very intellectually stimulating. Thanks!
@stevelord I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that CP/M runs in 64k of RAM. I don't think Linux from scratch or any of the BSDs come close to this. I messed with computers in the 80's but had forgotten how little they had to work with, and they were quite responsive. I'm going to try CP/M on bare metal on a Pi next week. I want to dig into this stuff a bit because it is really neat. I might ask for some help.
@daniel sure go ahead. Just try to run CP/M Plus rather than 2.2 if you can, and do take a look at the Retr0 Zer0 manual for inspiration.
@stevelord Thanks, I will read it. No need to apologize, he seems like a knowledgeable guy, just a bit off-topic and dramatic. Getting people to think about how they use computers and getting them to understand them is a admirable goal and probably the only way out of the mess of modern computing. I appreciate the help.
