Vault-Co Was Way, Way Ahead Of The Rest Of The Pack

We foresaw all these developments.

This is why Vault-OS is worth finishing and deploying, not just for my own personal use but everybody else's as well. I will make my money on the master lexicon that describes how to install it and make it automate anything and everything having to do with civil defense.

Do you know what will be the different between Vault-OS and the multimillion dollar systems installed by high paid price gouging opportunists described in the article? My stuff will be free, operate on junk computers with free components and run faster and be far more robust and fault-proof. During a civil emergency, if these millionaires call their security company and get a line disconnected message, who fixes their high-tech system if it goes down? With Vault-OS, you just pop another floppy in and reinstall it - anywhere, on anything that looks remotely like a computer. No specialized hardware for SCADA, stuff you can pull off old automobile engines and scavenge together from scrap electronics.

One server for a couple hundred terminals, all of them running the barest minimum browser that was current in 1999. I have learned so much since then from simple experimentation and elimination of flawed approaches. I think back to my early experiments with these systems and I just could not see the woods for the trees back then. I have it streamlined now down to a system that is just scarcely even there.

Soon as I finish my game, big things are going to happen with Vault-OS. I reckon three weeks of intensive work and I could have it up on SourceForge as version 1.0 for review.

Tex I've been thinking of relocating outside the US. Would New Zealand be decent place for a computer programmer? Or is Australia the best bet for the long haul?

I am also a computer programmer looking to relocate soon. I'm considering Russia.

Vault-OS will be open source?

@Luke

Yes. I am particularly in search of maintainers for different platforms for both the server and any daemons for various protocols. I don't think I can do it all myself but I have to provide the framework and tools to run on the major platforms Win32, Linux, FreeBSD, DOS (and now maybe RTEMS actually booting from FreeDOS)

@Jack Black

It is tragic to contemplate but increasingly Australia looks like your best bet. Remember, everything is relative.

Tex, I'd be very excited to help maintain Vault-OS in any way you see fit. I'm not the best programmer in the world but I'm pretty skilled for a 23yo and would be highly motivated for this project in particular. I can't wait to read through your code. It sounds beautiful.

@Luke

When I go open source it would be great to speak to you again. I would only accept changes to the main source from a small team of maintainers and would not want to permit open submission of changes from people I do not know and who may not understand the purpose to keep it simple without clutter.

Luke said...

Definitely.
