Currently reading the PDP-11 processor manual and Lions Commentary on Unix 6th Edition, as well as sorting out some bugs in sw3m. My interest in maintaining sw3m is waining, partly due to the brittleness of the w3m codebase. I’ve started work on getting cookies up to the latest RFC, but pausing that work til’ the remaining issues brought up from Kuang-Che Wu’s afl-fuzz run have been addressed. This broken elbow has had me do more computer work/research in 2 weeks than in the whole summer - I’m expecting a fruitful winter.
- Bitsavers - repo for old manuals and code - probably my favourite discovery this week. So many gems in there, should definitely help NiceBSD along.
- Living Computer Museum - you can get a login to old machines, awesome!
- MIT CADR Lisp Machine Source Code
- Lessons Learned From Reading Postmortems
