rcornwell/ctss: CTSS source and binaries edit / delete

Tidy copy of the CTSS code. I was struck by how modern this is in several ways -- the MAD language it's written in is remarkably nice for the timeframe.

A large collection of early PC "booter" games, mostly converted to be hard-disk installable. Useful if you're after period-appropriate software for an XT or AT. (Although this hostname appears to be pointing at a different site today, for some reason...)

MVS/380 - 31-bit MVS - 25 years in the making edit / delete

The last public domain version of the MVS operating system only supported a 24-bit address space, which is a pain if you want to run modern software. This is a novel solution using Hercules: they've invented a new backwards-compatible 31-bit architecture ("S/380") which the older OS can easily be ported to! Very neat.

IBM 51xx PC Family Computers edit / delete

Manuals and repair information for IBM 51xx machines. I ought to get my AT up and running again at some point, now I've found all the bits of it. (One of the classiccmp posters has one that's been upgraded enough to run Linux, which is kind of neat...) -- As of 2015 I've now done this, and this site was very helpful!
