Forum Feedback and Administration / Discord invitation link?
Last post by Hālian - October 09, 2020, 01:36:18 am
I'd like to suggest adding, among the other redirect boards, a fourth linking to the Discord server, visible only to registered and verified users.

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-Her sourcery method of 'cutting' words before her and rearranging them seems outdated in modern times since word-processing is more or less an integrated function of most OSes.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?
