Excellent, hadn't seen that. A Monty Python sketch that ended without anyone getting shot!

And yes, this thread is very much like it. My brother had to run Slackware 1.0 on a Psion 3 organiser which ran off a dynamo on the family exercise bike.

Just for record, my fist computer was an i8080 Radio-86RK built by myself http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/d...86RK-(Russia)/

When I say "built by myself" is about starting with drawing the motherboard circuits by hand, buying the components from an electronics shop, then soldering them one by one.

We used to dream of buying our components from an electronics shop...

Perfectly apropos. I happened to be watching Life of Brian last night so Monty Python was in the air.

I had looked into icecream some time back when SuSE introduced it, but never really implemented it in any meaningful way. Now, with some machines which are otherwise not being used (I was originally planning on using said machines for retro gaming, but that didn't work out for various reasons), I'm really pleased how easy it is to set up icecream for compilations. My machine (FX-8370 w/ 32GB of RAM) is no slouch when it comes to compilation, but I've always been curious about distributed computing, and now I have the chance to do so. I'm excited for the possibilities!

Thanks for sharing this, had never seen it before! Bit late to the party but I was pretty ill when you posted it. Paints the atmosphere of this thread in a good way.

Pleased to hear you did not go the way of the Norwegian Blue.
