I've been thinking about how to serve http using Commodore deviecs, and the best idea I came up with was a serial link between one computer and a PC, and lot of CBM drives attached to that computer's serial port. Then I thought of adding additional computers with drives attached using the CIA shift registers on the serial port. Obviously this restricts the speed of transfer between PC and the first computer to 2400 baud, since the Datapump circuit can't be used. However, perhaps a CMD Swiftlink or similar UART cartridge would sort that out. Anyway, for those that know Apache, how easy would it be to get Apache to divert requests for a particular directory subtree (eg. richard.com/sillystuff/cbm/) to another Linux application? This would translate the request into a single file request (flat file structure, possibly using a hashing algorithm) to be sent to the Commodore host over RS232. The Commodore would then send the data back over RS232 (possibly using its own 64K or 128K, or REU, as a cache) and the httpd would serve it. I quite like the idea of offering web space 'hosted' on a C64 :) Richard - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
