What we would lose if the forum disappeared.

What we would lose if the forum disappeared.

welcome to the latest rabbithole linkfest adventure.

here we see rich and juanito patiently instructing xor:
(you will note 3 pages over 2.5 years and that the student
is using google translation to read and reply on the forum)
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22802.0.html
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22802.50.html
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22802.100.html

reference rich's post:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22802.msg162577.html#msg162577

and rich's FetchExt.sh script thread:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23034.0.html

there we see rich providing more indepth instructions and the
student noting some errors in the script(which rich corrected).

(sidenote: we know rich is human because a machine would have
caught "Dispaly" already, or not mis-keyed it originally, lol).

anywho, back to the fun!

see doctoranonymous post:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23034.msg146359.html#msg146359

and...further down the rabbithole we fall with a "shebang":
https://www.google.com/search?q=en.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FShebang_(Unix)

enjoyed this one:
https://dev.to/meleu/what-the-shebang-really-does-and-why-it-s-so-important-in-your-shell-scripts-2755

and the above commentary on the shebang also linked to:
(note that this email was originally written in 1980!)
https://www.in-ulm.de/~mascheck/various/shebang/4.0BSD_newsys_sys1.c.html

and then from that page we followed a link to:
https://www.in-ulm.de/~mascheck/various/shebang/index.html
(you might spend years following all those links and sub-links...whew!)

one more from the comments section of that "what-the-shebang" piece:
https://www.perl.com/article/bang-bang/

*****************************************

so we-forum-participants-and-tinycore-users would definitely miss it!

thoughts?

First of all, let me explain why I am trying so eagerly and patiently to run Steam.

The topic was never actually "steam"!
I actually see "steam" as an effort to break an existing monopoly.

yes, I am aware that there is no philosophical slogan.
moreover, in many ways it can be very contrary to minimalism.

when I come across TCLinux topics in local forums in my country, everyone perceives TCL as a linux alternative only for lightweight systems; Unfortunately, I guess that's how everyone sees TCL in almost all local language forums.

Here is how to overcome this mistake; this is an attempt to show everyone that there is actually a heavyweight boxer operating system in the middle.

performance of operating systems.
If they reveal with game FPS benchmark comparisons;

It's time to put on a show.

my goal is a pc with a usb in a high end gaming pc in the showroom

-0- within 30 seconds after an operating system installation
launching a Steam game

and it can be to change the whole world's point of view in an instant :D

Let's see if google translate can translate this article correctly :D

Is there a concern of the forum disappearing?  i.e. a specific need or deadline - or - just a musing look back over the interesting posts of yore?
