Some Bits & Bytes


Nice bits and bytes of historic and other interest ...

JavaScript Emulations

 JS/UIX – virtual OS / UN*X emulation
JS/UIX – a virtual OS for web browsers.
JS/UIX is a whole interactive, virtual OS in UN*X style, written entierly in JavaScript. It brings its own terminal and features a sh-like shell, virtual filesystem, process-management with fork, child-processes, pipes and sub-shells.

JS/UIX is not a free software! For a free and easy to use library for terminal-interfaces see http://www.masswerk.at/termlib or see the local mirror.

Virtual UNIVAC
Virtual Univac – a web based UNIVAC I emulator
  A quick and dirty binary compatible reconstruction of the UNIVAC I, the first computer commercially available. Based on some manuals and training material found on the web. (Sorry no docs included.) Done in 2001 to gather some experience with early computer equipment as part of a recherche on computer history. (Sadly the only missing parts are the the console and printer outputs. The script was designed for Netscape 4, so some visual feedback – e.g. shortly flashing control lights – may be missing.)
A Tribute to After Dark
  The first and only screen-saver on the web.
Perfectly useless, perfectly nice. They are back:
