Ghost in the DCL shell: OpenVMS, touted as ultra reliable, had a local root hole for 30 years


Bulletproof VMS...

Bulletproof? VMS has had more security holes than a Group 4 staff reunion dinner.

VMS will be ready to run on x86 in 2019!



I used x86 VMS in about 1992 in alpha test - So I guess Digital forgot to mention that to Compaq then.

Armed cops in Lara Croft bust action


Herts Police do it better, it seems.

Ah I had the same problem - I had my full sized Lara in an upstairs window looking down on the front garden and eventually had a visit from 2 nice young chaps from the Herts Constabulary asking me nicely to point her gun the other way. They were worried that she would scare away too many drugged up ASBO kids trying to steal my car. Mind you, this way I can shoot them without them being warned. These things work better in the countryside.
