Tonight we're going to go way back in the Time Machine(TM) to check out
some old OSes and video games from our past. Specifically, we've got a
beautifully running old box born sometime in the early 90s with DOS 3.x on
it, a BIOS consisting of only one screen of setup options, and a whopping
512KB of memory (whoa!).
So we've got Oregon Trail, ALF, and a few other old-school 80s games on
5 1/4" floppies (yes, you read that right) that we can bring up and
running on this box, and the plan is to get one or more of these games
running on our modern personal computers before the night is out. So if
you like old hardware, resource-light software, funky UIs, and game
emulators, this is the night for you. Come on out to Votey 367 at 7pm,
and join us for a little hacking fun. And watch out for the cholera.
It's always waiting on the trail if you don't keep your guard up.
Keep on hackin' in the free world,
Your friendly neighborhood Computer Science Student Association
