@0PT41N Probably no Tetris, I think the Osborne was quite dead by the time we started seeing western ports. A galaga clone would fit timewise, but I haven't seen one. There weren't many games given the lack of actual graphics.
Turns out the chip I thought was bad was actually fine. I read the diagram wrong and instead there was a bad trace to a different chip. So one bodge wire later and I have a working Osborne 1. #retrocomputing
@lig These days I mostly live in Python land, but I wanted to get back into systems level of programming again, but instead of trying to pick C back up after so many years, I thought I'd try something new.
I think I'm going to have to finally dump Ubuntu, 20.10 is just way too buggy. Don't know where I'll go. I don't like Red Hat-like distros, so Fedora is out. I'd like to stay in Debian-like land, but real Debian won't support my fairly new laptop without lots of work and other Debian-like is generally Ubuntu based, so I don't know if I can trust it. Maybe Manjaro? I don't dislike Arch-like as much as Red Hat-like at least.
Think I may spend some of my holiday spare time getting to know #rustlang It's probably the biggest programming language that I've had zero contact with.
@c_cooper Yeah, it still gets some work done. I've wanted to upgrade my PC for a while so it can go to my server, but it was hard to justify upgrading since it still does what I need for the most part.
