      It's part of the relicensing effort : http://marc.10east.com/?l=full-disclosure&m=111233850313353&w=2

    Congratulations Mickey!

    If anyone knows of a HP9000-710 that needs a new home (so hppa/32bit support can be finished), contact mickey@

    Kind Regards,
    JCR

    Boy ... you guys are sooooooo gullible. Look at the date of the post and ask yourself, when was the last time I saw anything with an hppa64?? It should becomes pretty obvious ... it even doesn't exist ... he's just been planning this joke for months. =) ---

      It's real; just look at all the related cvs commits.

      OTOH, there's nothing more funny than doing something unlikely, but real on april 1st. Nothing like making people think you're trying to fool them while you're not ;-)

        Which reminds me -- undeadly is a year old today, isn't it?

        Seems like that was years and years ago when everyone was saying "Worst April fools joke ever."

          Indeed, the post we're done was thought to be a transparent April fools joke. As it was, they meant what they wrote, and it was no joke at all. Luckily, we got undeadly.org, but who is now running the deadly site?

            Same guy as once ran it, he just let undeadly have the content and turned the site back to his own purposes.

          No, deadly.org shut down one year ago. Undeadly didn't start up for a few days as I recall.

    This is awsome! Which machines are supported ?

    1. By Nate (65.95.125.49) on

      At the moment nothing is listed on the port page. Give them a day or two to update it.
