RE: Chown ???



i had a trs-80/radio shack color computer in college... those where the
days...

in junior high... one of my math teachers was taking her 1st course in
programming.. "basic".. she managed to somehow get a teletype machine, with
the yellow/white paper rolls, so we could actully login/access the local
college system, and that's where i started learning "basic"...

in 1972... damn i want a drink...

That is the root directory of a Color Computer 3, running nitros9-3.2.8 as
the
os.  The more things change, the more they stay the same, it is a
multiuser/multitasking os running on an 8 bit Hitachi 63C09 cpu, at 1.79
mhz/second.  It has a 1GB scsi hard drive, 2 megs of ram.  Lots more but I
suppose I'd bore the list.  A true legacy computer, complete with a
bluetooth
serial port, although that was scraped from a wired connection.
