        Optimization of Xenix 386 - How not to do it!

          Hes probably still compiling. Contemporary with the recent Xenix theme, way back in '93 I had a 40 MHz 386DX with 4 one meg SIMMs. You see back then each SIMM only provided 8 bits and 386 being a 32 bit bus, yeah, so SIMMs were installed in quads not pairs like today. Now 4 megs of ram could either run xwindows at 640x480 or so, OR I could add a couple megs of swap (like 4 or so) and compile a kernel in about two hours. I found some 256K SIMMs laying around for the taking because 1 meg 286 was kinda passe by '93 or so, and I installed all four bringing be up to 5 megs. The speed up on kernel compiles was much better than linear with memory and I used a lot less swap and a compile now only took maybe a half hour, which is a pretty good deal seeing as I paid "free" for the 256K SIMMs.

          Maybe a few years later (but not many, like '94, '95 or so) I vaguely remember saving up quite a pile of money, like a months rent, and buying 4 meg simms such that I could install 4 of them to get 16 megs AND install the four 1 meg simms (removing the 256K simms) leaving me with a staggering 20 megs of ram. Which is a hell of a lot seeing as 40 meg IDE PATA drive was installed. I may have upgraded to a 120 meg IDE by then.

        You sent me a message asking which application I used to catalogue my books, but Soylent doesn't appear to give me a mechanism for replying. I use Book Catalogue [f-droid.org], though it appears to be largely unmaintained. There are a few forks on GitHub that appear to add a few new features. It works well, but the search UI could do with some improvements for books that don't have ISBNs.

    On March 20th 2017 a small website used primarily by people with glasses was the recipient of yet another example of what we are calling "The POTUS Effect". All over leaders small and large are emulating the latest US president by using their position of power for personal gain. We are getting reports now that this is not a new phenomenon and we are simply seeing it on a larger scale.

      About 5 words depending how you count it. Its an interesting series. If I was taking bets I'd bet he thought he'd get eth0 up and running and make a triumphant post to SN from inside Xenix, but here we are, xenix-less once again. Or perhaps he took the red pill and found out what we call "the real world" is actually a simulation written in COBOL inside MVS/360 on a Hercules emulator and he didn't take it well.
