OS-tan Talk / Re: More IBM-tans III: The One...
Last post by stewartsage - Today at 01:09:23 pm
Astrotype-tan: AKA ICS Astrotype, AKA Astrocomp AKA Astrocomp 8
-A successful example of IBM/DEC cooperation, her parents are Selectric-kun and PDP-8. (ICS used Selectric terminals with a PDP-8/L and DECTape drives)
-Also an inside agent in the Detroit area, not necessarily willingly.
-A phenomenal typist.  She manages massive documents and edits them in her head. (One of the first word-processor systems with random-access editing capability)
-Her sourcery method of 'cutting' words before her and rearranging them seems outdated in modern times since word-processing is more or less an integrated function of most OSes.
-Same for her type block hurling attacks.
-Seems to know just about everyone (Astrotype and Astrocomp were widely used as office machinery)
-Has an older half-sister hardware-tan, Selectric MT/ST.
-Works well with humans and hardware-tans.
-Status: Alive, probably (Remaining Astrotype/Astrocomp PDP-8/L and tape drive units still exist, even if no longer used specifically for typesetting/word processing)

Physical: Prefers blue and white outfits, usually with words integrated into the trim or any designs on the fabric.

I remember having a swf or something like that with them doing the thing. Do you remember if it exists? I dont remember exactly if it exists but all versions I watched on youtube are not the one I remember and the only piece of the puzzle in my mind is it is related to the OS-tans...

Glad to Hear It! Things have been going better on my end, after I quit my Job at Wal-mart to start my own company! My close friends are back in contact with me again also.

Be safe everyone with COVID-19 [fingers-crossed] Moderna, the latest news for possible vaccine anyone?

Hope everyone is doing well during this COVID-19 pandemic.
I'm just chilling in the tropics doing some electrical engineering and electronic's restoration stuff to pass the time.

This site still has amazing hold on me where I'll see the bookmark in the bar and can never remove it or ignore it.
Glad to see we are still up and running even to this day.

Edit:
Just checked and yup, been here for 10 years now... where does the time go lol

In answer to recent demands on this topic, the files are not available anymore as the site has been transfered and taken care of.

It is therefore normal that they are not freely reachable.

First post updated accordingly.
