Huh, I'm not finding you on steam.

Under "Community", try searching for a group called miataturbo.net

I know what I need to try to do.

I want to pair up with another Engie and put a matched pair of teleporters in both Intel rooms. That way I can grab the intel, teleport to my room, drop it off, and then teleport back and grab it again before The Administrator can even finish saying "The enemy has captured our Intelligence."

Shortest full match of CTF in history.

Great. Now you can see when one or more of us is in-game, and elect to join us. You may also find yourself invited to join in a match when one is being planned. These are usually coordinated here on the forum ahead of time.

A tip: the current "hot trend" seems to be MvM. You'll want to practice playing some "regular" games on the public servers first, then some MvM on the public servers. In other words, right now you suck at TF2. (It's ok, we all did.) Learn how to not suck before joining up in league play of MvM.

You can still hop into regular unscheduled games with us any time.

So let's say I wanted to play with the Joe Perez right now, what would I do to make that happen?

Man, last night was a hell of a good game.

It's really rare to find two teams that well matched and with players of that caliber. BLU was really on top of their game, and did an excellent job of preventing me from accomplishing any of my usual shenanigans. They also didn't fall for our tricks inside Red Intel- normally that arrangement shoots me right to the top of the scoreboard.

Also, thanks for everybody abandoning me in the intel room just as the ENTIRE blue team showed up.

I did some MVM bootie camp stuff with what were likely kindergardeners by the way they played. So much fail that anytime a 5th or 6th person joined up they left after or during their first wave. I dunno why I stuck around but I gained a couple more weapons.

That was a KILLER round, Virant.



Incidentally, here's what I was talking about earlier.

In-game screenshot:





Here's a closeup of the dual DECtape transport in real life, installed in a PDP-11 (a "small" computer):





And in the context of a full size PDP-10 system (featuring the "Moby Memory" cabinets- the rightmost six racks are nothing but RAM):





Ironically, the two most common colors of the PDP series: Red and Blu. (Green was used on the LINC series, which were laboratory-oriented systems with analog I/O)


The PDP-10 was a truly awesome computer, and was home to most of the early realtime multiuser timesharing systems (that actually worked.) It was so complex that it included a built-in PDP-11 (visible in the third cabinet from left, below the DECtape) whose sole function was to act as a bootloader and watchdog.


CompuServe (remember them?) was also based on the PDP-10 system, and they continued to operate them all the way until 2009 (!!!) when the system was finally decommissioned.











Its predecessor was the PDP-6, pictured below. It was on this system, located at MIT's AI lab, that EMACS was first created. Additionally, ITS (Incompatible Timesharing System, a predecessor to UNIX) was first written on this very machine.





Extreme Geek Trivia: A PDP computer, with DECtape drives, is featured prominently in the first act of "Three Days of the Condor." Janice Chon is loading a new spool of tape onto it just before she is assassinated.

So Apple even stole the name EMAC. Hilarious.

Oops, slight typo on my part. It's properly spelled EMACS.

If you mean that Apple includes EMACS in their Linux-based OSes, I wouldn't say they stole it. EMACS has been part of every standard Unix/Linux distribution for decades.

(Unless they're using the name for something else.)

No, I mean they named an entire line of computers the "eMac".

Oh, yeah. The Gumdrop-class machines. I totally forgot about those.

edit: Wait, no, those were iMacs. What's an eMac?

edit II: Ah, Wikipedia to the rescue. Wow, I TOTALLY forgot about those. Hard to believe they weighed 50 lbs. Was Apple intentionally putting lead ballast in them or something? And no carrying handle like the iMac, plus a totally slick, smooth case with no hard edges. Great design, there.
