>I was still a member of the team that made the BCC Model 1 time sharing computer that would handle 100 simultaneous users. The largest time sharing computer at that time was an IBM that could handle 3 users.
Ummmm.... BCC was incorporated on Mar 9, 1969 and closed on Apr 17,
1972. Presumably, you worked for BCC during this time period. The
1972 publication of the Auerbach Guide to Timesharing lists 125 time
share services and systems that were in operation by 1972.
Unfortunately, the publication does not list the number of users. I
assume most had more then 3 users/terminals/ports/modems.
>I now have 3800 miles on the bike and 72,000 feet of climbing. What do you have and if you don't ride a bike why are you on a technical group when you couldn't even lube your own chain?
I see. You expect me to demonstrate my bicycle riding and chain
lubrication abilities in order to validate my competence in
demonstrating that your are full of excrement. Sorry, but I fail to
see a connection between miles ridden, feet climbed and chains lubed
with your inability to survive a fairly simple fact checking.
>Tell me you snake - why are you on this group?
I'm your personal fact checker and peer reviewer. You're welcome.
>As a cripple you can't ride so what do you suppose you're going to learn here?
I've learned quite a bit about bicycles. Primarily, I'm interested in
bicycle lighting and electrification. However, that was all before
you returned to R.B.T. I probably should do something more useful,
but I occasionally need to unload my frustrations on a willing victim.
You seem to be enjoying the attention, so you were the obvious
>How to dix a flat?
What is a "dix"?
>Maybe you are going to believe that crap about how many people have been vaccinated because your mind wanders since you got your vaccinations and that destroys your immune system and makes you the perfect target for a real disease?
Yet another change of topic. I just realized something about you that
I had previously missed. In any discussion, when someone points out
that you are misled, misinformed, lying, or fabricating numbers, you
never really respond to the topic under discussion. Is I recall, my
first disagreement with you was when you declared that the average
size of a farm in the US was 40 acres, and several people demonstrated
that this was not the case. You never really replied and simply
changed the topic. I should have caught it then. I must be getting
old. Lately, it seems that you're wrong about almost any topic. So,
instead of changing the topic, you revert to something you are
familiar with such as Former President Trump, Covid-19, vaccines, CDC,
President Biden, various conspiracies, and your stable of bicycles.
However, these are getting old and you are probably in need of new
material. Therefore, I suggest you look at the news for what is
happening in China with electrical power, power shortages, Tofu Dreg
infrastructure (collapsing buildings due to inferior materials and
construction), exit of many large international businesses, high
taxes, and various shortages. I would be interested in seeing how you
might distort those problems.
