[school-discuss] Roadblocks . . . and ancient thingys.

Ahhh.... memory lane.

Yes, we had a couple of 386's/8MB Ram doing demand-dial for our school network in rural Saskatchewan.... the olden days. I didn't have the server resources at that point to make X useful as a terminal solution, etc.

Hi, Marilyn: May I suggest you obtain a donated PIII low-end computer,

PIII low-end??????????????

Low-end is P1 MMX 166MHz for me! With 32 MB RAM!

That's what I have in my classroom - 12 low-end PCs.

End what to load on that????


It's not that long ago, (10 years or so), we were running Linux and X on 386's with 8 MB RAM. Today, the above PI is considered useful only as a router or Xterm.
