[TUHS] Porting UNIX...

Understood. This is one of the novels that BBC Press is presenting to the
many fans. It takes place during the 1980s, which is when the PDP-11 design
was king, and the DG Nova-4 and Eclipse (MVIII I think) was trying to unseat

 It's also an interesting exploration into the hacking community that was
just beginning to emerge and still exists today, with the crackers taking
over from the hackers, and hackers doing what they do best; spend all day
and sometimes all night working on a problem. Now if anyone actually wants
the title and year it came out, please ask off list.

As I said before, it features the Sixth Doctor. I think I know which one you
mean, I do know there was a mini involved in "Inferno" which did feature Jon
Pertwee. Which naturally isn't the one you're thinking of.

And now back to our regularly scheduled discussions and arguments.
