"Maybe they'll take a leaf from Acorn's book, at least for a machine such as the Pro. The RiscPC had two processor slots, and while the "main" processor was always ARM, the other one could be x86. In Acorn's case installing Windows was a bit like installing in a VM ("drive c" was a file on RiscOS's HDD) but it ran on a physically separate processor. The "graphics card" was a driver that passed graphics ops to RiscOS, for example."
Which is exactly how the BBC Master 512 worked. Internal 80186 co-pro and Dos Plus 2.1. Throw a hard disk into the mix and it creates a 10-30MB file labelled - funnily enough - DRIVE_C. As far as the co-pro was concerned, it was a 10-30MB hard disk and would boot from it.
Just as an experiment, populate the subs with the Twitterati and Farcebook briandead. Send them out to sea for months and when they get back ignore them.

Fixed it for you.
"That's a bit unfair. They did switch to oauth 2 which obviously didn't work with non-oauth2 imap clients, but they still let you "downgrade" your account to allow the usual user/password authentication."
With the caveat of sending you emails saying your account isn't secure, every now and then.
First time I played it, was with two of my brothers watching. Armed with IDKFA, I get to E1M8 for the first time. Ride the lift up to the Bruiser Brothers areana and the doors open.
"Quick pull out something that will kill it!"
I brought up the chainsaw.
Happy times.. made even happier since discovering Zandronum and the Brutal Doom mod.
"The zip file, however, can be constructed so that it also decompresses to c:\windows\system32\explorer.exe."
So long as the file isn't in use, of course...which it will be, unless you're using something else as SHELL. Unless it somehow manages to terminate the process when it reaches that point in the archive, overwrite it and when the shell reloads - that's when your'e in for a world of pain.
"I wish there was an easier way to do a new-install configuration. Install these extensions, disable this that and the other, and change the UI in the following ways."
Install, configure then take a backup of the relevant identities directory and profiles.ini file. You'll find adding that to a subsequent new install (even on a different machine, or OS), everything will be as you set it without having to chance any config options. Bookmarks, history, passwords, installed extensions - it's all there. So adding that to a fresh install before launching FF will save a lot of config time.
"browser.pocket.enable" doesn't seem to exist in Firefox 52.x (ESR), on CentOS 7.x."
Indeed. my about:config was based on FF43.0.4* (win32) so later ones will most likely be in a subtly different option.
*I won't go beyond that as there is so much bloat in later versions to disable I can't be arsed trawling through about:config or finding out that I can no longer disable said bloat because the option has been removed in the newer version.
"In the UK a ticket bought with a discount, using an annual Gold Card for example, is only valid with the associated photo ID; even if you've paid the fare if you forget the Gold Card & ID, the ticket's not valid."
And you have to pony up the difference in price if you want to continue your journey.
