About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. Pity… If only somebody <wink, wink> ported it to something else than allegro4, it seems it would be quite useful also on OS X

    • SDL? Is it really any better? I have an existing project I need to move from Allegro4 to at least SDL. SO many things, so little time, and I’m all too easy to distract!

    • there is an AT diskette set for AIX 1.3 … I’ve even installed it on a PS/2 model 80 a zillion years ago. It was horribly unstable on there too. Just like Xenix with TCP/IP, it’s not the emulators fault it sucks.

  2. From PCem website:
    7th June 2016
    Updated v11 binary – anyone who’s been having problems with Voodoo emulation should re-download.
