TPC.int - did anyone of you get it to work? Meet Arlington Hewes?


In the '90s and early '00s I tried, always failed.

tpc.int doesn't respond on http, but whois returns a record, Arlington Hewes as the contact person, in Riverview, New Brunswick - he's moved.

Have you tried archive.org - the wayback archive? I got stuff from the early 1900s and stuff from the 1860s. They'll have the internet from the 1990s.

I don't need to see tpc.int's content back then. I even have a copy. I wanted to know if anyone at LQ had ever gotten it to work. I asked about Arlington Hewes whimsically. I assume he's fictional.

I would be very surprised if you got anything like that to compile, except maybe on Tomsrtbt
http://www.toms.net/rb It's still live, but unmaintained.

It will be kernel-2.0 or 2.2 based, libc5, with com ports, floppy disks, a totally different memory space using miniscule resources because that's what was around then. Grab and old OS to try it.

As for Arlington Hewes, who knows. I would find maintaining software over an extended period a tyranny, especially when there's no money in it.

It's a service, not an app: there's nothing to compile.

I assume he's a joke.
