Dooping around DEC ALL-IN-1. Groupware for the 1980s! It's Very Business. Running on VMS 7.3 on a MicroVAX 3100-40 with a VT420 terminal


@rey @techfury @coryw its confidential so I leaked it. i'm the ed snowden of VAX office automation


ALL-IN-1, for maximum overbusiness on your DEC VT100, courtesy of @techfury

it's cool to see all this wacky stuff, but its conventions are.... weird. "GOLD KEY" is PF0/Num Lock. you kinda see why people wanted pull-down menus

cc @coryw

also cool: VT100 fullwidth, enterprise ASCII art, menus

more ALL-IN-1 stuff

I've yet to the scratch the surface, with stuff like DEC Notes (which has an X11 version, and would make great BBS material) and WPS (a port of DEC's word processing from the PDP-8)

$ sh sys

indeed, nothing does suck like a vax

<@techfury> @calvin: you steal the swayzie express so we can send itaniums across the border


@amdt allegedly (I don't know for certain, @techfury can correct me) Fujitsu and/or NEC made domestic ones (or comparable machines that happened to run Lisp) - see fifth generation computing

that said, SMBX did have a presence in Japan

@calvin I wonder which pull quote is the one most people do?

The thing I always took away from it (and shared with @techfury a few times) was essentially "does it get you laid?" which was very interesting when we found the article, which was probably 2008 or so.

Fujitsu D10B stored program control switch at the NTT Museum in Tokyo. Amazing overengineering.

Best media format ever. Fuck Zip drives, this is where it's at. Weak Zip only uses magnetic fields. This uses magnets AND lasers! Specifically, lasers to fry the material to 400C so that a magnetic field can alter the magnetic polarization and simultaneously change the reflected wavelength of the material. HOW BADASS IS THAT?!?!?!
