After doing some digging into old files I’ve stumbled across some old interesting images that I decided to post. How time flies and how things change.
“Around computers it is difficult to find the correct unit of time to
measure progress. Some cathedrals took a century to complete. Can you
imagine the grandeur and scope of a program that would take as long?”
Looking back is sometimes a good measure where we are heading and to remind us where not to go.
Here are some screenshots of my HPCSH port of Doom and Wolfenstein 3D i did for NetBSD. They were done via VNC-viewer. Yes I actually had a VNC server running on Jornada 690.
Just for info the system specs were: The Jornada 690 was released in 1999. It was an HVGA Handheld PC running the Windows CE 2.11 based Handheld PC Professional 3.01. The device had a 133 MHz Hitachi SH3 processor with 32 MB of integrated RAM and a 16 MB ROM. The HP HVGA screen operated at 64K colour.
And also the NetBSD hpcsh port of Sarien (an AGI interpreter) which is now merged with ScummVM. Here the Space Quest 1 is loaded….
Here is the old gang of different architectures I used to mess around with, present are: x86, mac68k, VAX, (not visible – hpcsh and hpcarm) The place is rather dirty and un-kept
Here is my pen-test netbook EEE PC 4G runnig NetBSD off a sdhc card (I use customized Knoppix installed on the internal SSD)
And last Thinkpad X24 with NetBSD running OpenVMS 7.3 in sim-h vax emulation. Nobody hacks OpenVMS right ?
A nice flashback .. the memories … well off to new things.
