Hi All,

I got some questions recently about getting v7 working, so I fired up 
OBS to create a video walkthrough of the install process and first steps 
(it's basically following my v7 note, but hey some folks dig video). The 
video is totally amateur hour, but it was fun. I never get tired of 
logging in as dmr, writing hello.c, running cc, running hello and watch 
the magic of

hello, world

appear on "screen".

As a reminder - the note (and thus, the video) walks the user through 
installing OpenSIMH (including pdp11), building a tape image, installing 
to disk from tape, booting off the disk, building and using a DZ-11 as a 
telnet listener on 16 lines, adding a user, running learn, and piddly 
stuff like setting baud, delays, and such. Not a lot of hand-holding, 
but some.

When I get around to it, I'll probably update the note to add additional 
test environments (I'm pretty sure it works anywhere OpenSIMH does, but 
some folks like to see there system or one kinda like it in the list of 
tested systems). I'm running LMDE5 and Debian 12 Bookworm these days, so 
I know they work there in addition to pretty much any Linux Mint, MX 
Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS, etc.

I'm still in awe of Hayle and Ritchie's Setting Up Unix - Seventh 
Edition as the basis of my note - 44 y.o. and counting... for holding up 
so well.
