Tinux by Olivier Borowski
Posted by Nick on 23 October 1999, 20:37 GMT

Aaron Chernosky provided me with a link to a page carrying a shell that I (and it seems like everyone else) never knew existed before (though it was apparently updated in August): Tinux. As you can see from the screenshot, it looks pretty neat; this assembly shell for the 86 has a lot of great features. This program was created by Olivier Borowski, and sadly, the entire program (source, text and everything else) is in French. English port, anyone? :)

Completely Unrelated Update (Nick): Today, we once again broke the weekly request record with 1,638,602 page requests for the week of October 17. The previous record was set last week, October 10, with 1,623,549 requests - about 15,000 less. Yay.

Tell me I'm not hallucinating, but wasn't there previously a news item that announced Ahmed's updating of some Ashell games? I just noticed it missing a couple minutes ago.

This shell looks great. Too bad I don't have an 86, though. There could be some pretty good add-ons to this sort of shell if the author allows sort of an SDK-type program. It looks great. If only DoorsOS looked like that. Maybe AMS 2.00 will satisfy me.

I never saw such a news item. I find it weird how ticalc.org updated ZTetris v1.5 for SOS and ZTeteris v1.3 for AShell83 even though they have been out since March/April of this year.

I even replied to it...I wonder where it went. ticalc.org updated them because Ahmed recently found a few bugs and felt like updating. I think it's a good move by ticalc.org to continue to support older, maybe "obsolete" (I'm hesitating to use the word) shells with the introduction of Ion recently.

No, even if you go to Ahmed's webpage, you'll see that these versions have been out for A LONG TIME, ticalc.org just didn't have them for some reason. They have been out since March or April of this year, Ahmed didn't make any "big fixes" to these two particular versions.

almost as cool as liquid cooling my cpu... =D

sorry to be off topic but I love my liquid cooling project, I have successfully cooled my amd k6-2 500 down to -23F and it runs about 15% faster because of thermal acceleration. Ohh yeah, this sounds good but buggy bye what I'm reading, I'll just have to download it and see...

Just a suggestion: Put a "latest record" box in the right column of the front page. That way, it doesn't waste a news item.

Good idea. Oh wait, that'll just make Bryan say that ticalc.org puts more stuff on the front page simply to increase the number of requests... :)

Good idea, though. I think it should be implemented.

That wouldn't influence requests, unless for some reason they added a picture to it... then again, maybe Bryan WOULD say that...

I think it's a good idea too. People who don't like it can just disable it in their preferences.

Does loading the stats compromise a "request?" Are the stats updated upon request or are they automatically generated every hour or so?

You mean loading the stats webpage? Sure it does. Loading the webstats page counts as a number of requests, I'm not sure of the exact number - since there are probably at least half a dozen images on that page.

And that page is updated weekly.

My bad, its updated daily not weekly.

They're updated once a day, regardless of whether anyone looks at them. If you do, though, that's a request. :)

No Chris, some of us get headaches from looking at plain-text 24/7.

I really hope you are joking, because all that would do is increase the Gb/transfered per month slightly.

I frankly think its a bad idea. All ticalc.org is trying to do is show off and saying, "We broke another record last week, now everyone bow down and worship us now."

For how much you seem to hate ticalc.org, you must spend about 20 hours a day on it...
