The Information Technology department at Helsinki University of Technology got an own building this week. Because of the move to the new building, the Linux box dot.tcm.hut.fi was shut down (probably last Friday), and it wasn't connected to the net until today. I have some bad news and good news. The bad news: the /pub/cbm filesystem on ftp.funet.fi is almost full. Because of this, the creation of the file description database can fail. And as Mr. Murphy says, something bad that can happen will happen. The file descriptions on ftp.funet.fi:/pub/cbm and /pub/cpm were lost last Wednesday or so. I restored the 00INDEX files from a copy I had made in July, and all newer files are lacking the descriptions. If anyone has a newer copy of /pub/cbm, please check the file http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/incoming/MISSING-DESCRIPTIONS and help me if you can. (André Fachat already sent me some descriptions for some files, but they are not the original ones.) The good news: there are some 8296 schematics at http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/pet/8296/. What else? Is anyone interested in proof-reading my Master's Thesis? I have about 36 pages of text right now, and by the end of next week (before I leave for Dublin, New York, Boston and San Fransisco), I hope to have the whole thing finished, over 70 pages. The work is about writing a compiler (SDL compiler if that matters). I'd like to have some comments about it by the time I return, that is, around the 20th of November. This is quite off-topic, but learning something about compilers might be useful some day. Who knows, maybe someone will write a 6502 back-end for the compiler, and one day all telephone switches in the world will be running on C64s. :-) Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
