ergo98 (9391) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772681)

Really, can't you imagine that it worked? The more successful of an implementation it has, the more transparent and the least interesting it really should be: HTTP & TCP/IP are standards, and whether it's a Liza or a big piece of ratcrap with some neural nets going in it, the goal of web standards is that it's absolutely, postively irrelevant.

Correct IP address or is it shutdown already? (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2772661)

Hey there's TCP/IP for the TI-89! The TI-89's got a 68k chip and 188K of RAM! I'd love to set a server up on mine ;D

Of course you need a computer running serial-to-network pass-through to connect it to the net... But that's a minor detail. ;D

There's Telnet for my TI-83+. You need a null modem cable, and a *nix box to dial into, but you can do all kinds of neat stuff (pretty much whatever your desktop telnet is capable of). Hell, i think it even runs Pine. http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/0/2/2 355.html

next think you know, someone will come out with a web server running on an Apple 1.

Now THAT would be an accomplishment. Kinda like the old Ham radio challange, to see who can use the lowest transmitter power for the longest distance 2 way contact.

An I know who could just about do it.

Ok? (1, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2772570)

Many of us will see this as hard work and ingenuity on the part of the people who hacked together this webserver. How many here will try to twist this into some kind of example of why "Apple's great because even their 17 year old hardware can be used a webserver" ?

I remember a few years back the guys ar l0pht had a mac plus (the lisa's younger brother) running as a web server. And some sick people actually made an Apple ][ into a web server.

Ozzy Osbourne - Mama I'm Coming Home

Times have changed and times are strange
Here I come, but I ain't the same
Mama, I'm coming home
Times gone by seem to be
You could have been a better friend to me
Mama, I'm coming home

You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized
Lost and found and turned aroound
By the fire in your eyes

You made me cry, you told me lies
But I can't stand to say goodbye
Mama, I'm coming home
I could be right, I could be wrong
Hurts so bad, it's been so long
Mama, I'm coming home

Selfish love yeah we're both alone
The ride before the fall
But I'm gonna take this heart of stone
I just got to have it all

CHORUS
I've seen your face a hundred times
Everyday we've been apart
I don't care about the sunshine, yeah
'Cause Mama, Mama, I'm coming home
I'm coming home

You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized
Lost and found and turned around
By the fire in your eyes

CmdrTaco's "Gaping Anus" 1.01 (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2772701)

CmdrTaco's "Gaping Anus" 1.01

You can be just like me! [geocities.com]

It has recently come to my attention that the entire Slashdot crew engage in homosexual activities. CmdrTaco [cmdrtaco.net] is one such person, and has dedicated his life to this disgusting habit and many others [e-t-r.net] . For further information on Taco-Snotting please refer to George WIPO Bush's Taco-Snotting FAQ which can be easily found by searching for the Slashdot journal of George WIPO Bush [slashdot.org] or by looking in the comments of Slashdot articles (Usually modded -1).

It has also come to my attention that CmdrTaco has other interests besides homosexuality (Believe it or not) [ripleys.com] . One such interest includes a budding music career with a song titled "Gaping Anus". The details are sketchy on this topic but I do know that besides the lead vocals of CmdrTaco, it includes Timothy and CowboyNeal (Also members of the Slashdot crew). There has been no release date set for this album or which record label it will be produced under. I believe CmdrTaco is planning to set up his own label, Taco-Snotting Records [riaa.com] , with the intention of releasing [amazon.com] the song on a cd-single with various remixes as soon as possible (To catch the current popularity of the Taco-Snotting fad). On a side note, I would not believe this fad will ever wear out (like a Snotted-out-geek); I am sorry to say Taco-Snotting is here to stay :-(. Various remixes of Gaping Anus will include: "Extra Jizz" [geocities.com] , "Snot Me Baby One More Time" [britneyspears.com] , "www.Goatse.cx" [goatse.cx] , and "Once You Taco-Snot, You Can't Stop" [pringles.com] . I am sure many, many, more are sure to come. I predict this album will be a very hot seller this holiday season, especially with in or out of closet homosexuals [resist.com] , and with those who have no self-respect (Readers of Slashdot) [goatse.cx] .

Through a good, non-homosexual [bsnn.net] friend of mine, I have recieved a copy of the lyrics to the Gaping Anus musical composition. Included after the lyrics is a very speical tribute written by yours truely. Perhaps CmdrTaco will ask me to provide the vocals. Please feel free to read the lyrics and post your comments and disgust.

BTW, please do not reply with the intention of flaming [advicemeant.com] me because the lyrics are a rip-off of Insane Clown Posse's [insaneclownposse.com] "Slim Anus" [realjuggalos.com] . For more information on ICP and Slim Anus refer here [planet-eminem.com] and here [mp3mtv.com] . CmdrTaco is the author of this fine musical work and not me. So, it is obviously he who has ripped off [kamakazi.com] ICP and not me. Thank you [elite.net] .

Hi, my name is what?

Well since age 12 I felt like I'm someone else
Cause I choked my original self Taco-Snotting him (Yup)

I told him to take his pants off, hooked him up, he let me slide
I pinched his ass
He winked at me
He chased me around the desk
I told him "Come and get me!"
Walked in the strip club
Had my jacket zipped up
Flashed the bartender
And I tried to feel his dick up

99% of my life I was lied to
I just found out my Mom screws more guys than I do (Damn)
I told her I'd grow up to be a famous Taco-Snotter
She met Michael, I couldn't believe it when he slapped her
You know you blew up when the women rush the stands
And try to touch your hands
But I need me a man

Stop the tape this gaylord needs to be locked away (Get him)
Cliff, don't just stand there operate
Or feel up my balls and buttcheeks
Anal lube got my ass greasy for weeks
Stick your manhood between my cheeks (Yup)
Am I coming or going
I can barely decide
I just drank a gallon of semen
Dare me to drive? (Go ahead)
All my life I was very deprived
CowboyNeal's butt is too sexy to hide
Take your pants off Neal I don't mind
Clothes rip like the incredible Hulk
I Taco-Snot when I talk
I do any guy that walks
When I was little I used to get so hungry I would throw fits
Sometimes I sit and wish Hemos had a set of tits
CowboyNeal: "Get behind me CmdrTaco and grab me by my hips"
If I do that then I can't kiss you on your lips
By the way if you see my Dad
Ask him if he seen my spread in Gay House Porno Mag

Hi, my anus who?
My anus what?
My anus gets tapped up
Hi, my anus who?
My anus what?
My anus it's always getting plugged up
Hi, my anus who?
My anus what?
My anus occasionally reamed out
My anus it needs to be filled up


Your anus
Your anus
Your anus is always getting plugged
Your anus
Your anus
Your anus is always getting stuffed
You wanna diss us?
We don't even know you you little bitch
You wanna sit there and diss us?
You little bitch I'll slap your face off
That's what happens when you go up against the Slashdot Trolls trick
You little bitch (Laughs)

A Follow Up To "Gaping Anus" (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2772709)

I have just recieved word of CmdrTaco's so called "girlfriend"...and I use the term loosely. As a follow-up to "Gaping Anus", he has written "Fat Sweaty Betty". This is a song dedicated to his one and only girlfriend.

"Fat Sweaty Betty" by CmdrTaco

w-w-w-w why dont you go into the next room and start getting undressed (x2)

Fat Sweaty Betty you bitch ain't nuthin new
Her ma used to baby sit me back when we was 2
We'd go to the playground and to the skating rink
And we'd go under the bleachers and she'd let me hit the stank
Well ah, she moved across town and never came back
Until the other day I seen her at the Chicken Shack
She said her name was Betty I can't believe this, shit
The sexy little girl is now a fat sweaty beatch
She said "Hey Taco! Tell me how you been"
She had a piece of chicken gizzard stuck to her chin
I told her, hold still and flicked it off her face
And said "Betty oh Betty what ya say we leave this place?"
I took her back to the crib and hit it all night
I let my fingers rub across the rippled cellulite
Oooooh it was nasty, but I don't let it bother me
She rolled over and fuckin knocked the wind outta me
I couldn't breath she wouldn't stop I'm almost dead
I took the lamp and bust it on her fuckin head We got dressed
I gave her a little kiss good-bye Fat Sweaty Betty,
my fat sweaty pumpkin pie

Fat Sweaty Betty
Tell me when your ready (x2)

Theres a big fat flop of shit people call Betty
Lots of fat on her back her neck, Sweaty
Boogers runnin out her noes and over hung lips
Can't tell the difference from her titties to her hips
But fuck all that cuz I wanna see the neden
I wanna see the cat that cheesy, cheesy, chin
Rode my bike to her house, hey yo Betty let me in
I'm packin some snack cakes, bitch let me in
I can hear her commin down the stairs
She opened up the door in her mutha fuckin underwear's
Eww, shit fuck that I'm turnin back
But then the door shut and she goin for the cake snack
I said relax hoe, I'm hear on business
You can have the candy, first you gotta wait a bit
I need a favor, come on Betty drop them drawers
Ahhhh, I knew it, Betty had balls
Oh, no here come that ass
From the top of the dresser with the Yokozuna Splash
I wish I never came Oh boy do I wish
She Fat Sweaty Betty The Sweaty Fat Bitch

Fat Sweaty Betty Tell me when your ready
fat sweaty betty (x8)

Netcraft [netcraft.com] says it's running Solaris...

Re:Oh really? (5, Informative)

Inthewire (521207) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772594)

"Netcraft says it's running Solaris."

From the Netcraft FAQ [netcraft.com] :
Why do you report impossible operating system/server combinations ?


Webservers that operate behind a caching system, load balancer, reverse proxy server or a firewall may sometimes report the operating system of the intermediate machine. Hence reports of 'Microsoft/IIS on Linux' may indicate that either the web server is behind a Linux server that is acting as a reverse proxy, or has configured the Akamai caching system such that the first request to the site goes to one of Akamai's servers [which run Linux], or as in the case of www.walmart.com has been configured to send a misleading signature.


I don't know that this is necessarily the case, but it may have bearing on the matter.

MadCamel (193459) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772577)

Most older IP stacks for Apples have a low amount of available sockets, such as 16 or 32. Once those are all being used, the machine can no longer accept connections.. Thus this link suffered instant slashdot. Good job!

Re:Slashdot overdrive (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#2772745)

Uh, are you suggesting that the Lisa *has* an Apple supplied IP stack? Very few machines in 1983 could speak IP and I doubt the Lisa was one of them (i'd be very surprised at least).

seanadams.com (463190) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772753)

According to this [slashdot.org] it's running System 7.01 and MacTCP 2.01.

I'm surprised software this recent even runs on Lisa. My Mac history is a little rusty, but IIRC, System 7 came out around the same time as the first 68030 Macs were introduced. How's that for backward compatibility?

Re:Here's the original message (5, Informative)

aberkvam (109205) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772669)

Also it's running the MacWorks+II software which pretty much turns the Lisa into a Mac Plus. This thing really isn't a Lisa anymore. Of course I don't think a TCP/IP stack was ever implemented for the Lisa so it would be pretty much impossible to get a real Lisa up and running as a web server....

serious question (-1)

ArchieBunker (132337) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772698)

What would it take to write a tcp/ip stack for old computers like this? The l0pht had plans for making an Apple IIe into a webserver by writing their own.

No longer a Lisa! (4, Interesting)

freshmkr (132808) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772712)

Mod the parent up! aberkvam's right, it's pretty much been modified to the point of not being a Lisa anymore. The square pixel screen modification alone is enough to keep it from running 7/7 (aka the Lisa Office System, the Lisa's groundbreaking OS), nevermind the CPU and memory modifications.

This aside, it might not be impossible to get a stock Lisa 2 (or even a Lisa 1!) on the net. Microsoft (if you can believe it) had a version of Xenix for both Lisa models. One could potentially program some "http server" that operates over one of the serial lines or perhaps do something more baroque than that (e.g. implement serial line PPP+web server in user mode).

If someone can find me a copy of Xenix on 5.25" Twiggy media and a spare ProFile external HD (5 megabytes!), I'll put my Lisa 1 on the net. Yes, I own one.

I used to have a webpage about the Lisa. The server that held it (a 386) suffered an untimely demise after another administrator ran rm -rf /. Fortunately, you can still view the old content online with the help of the Internet Archive. Go here [archive.org] and here [archive.org] to see some of the old content.

The Apple Lisa Web Page will return someday, I promise...

Phroggy (441) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772655)

hmm, TCP/IP via MacIP - that's TCP/IP tunneled over AppleTalk, which would presumably be running over a LocalTalk connection. One problem: the iMac doesn't have LocalTalk (serial) ports. Either he's using a USB-to-LocalTalk adapter, an Ethernet-to-LocalTalk adapter, or has soldered a port onto the motherboard (but I don't think you can do that on the Rev B, my memory's a bit shaky on this issue...).

Anyone care to shed some light?

Umm, did you bother to read the article? Why are you talking about iMacs? This is an Apple Lisa. You know, the computer that came between the Apple ][ and III lines and the Macintosh line?

Because, dumbass, if you had actually read the article, you'd find out that he was connecting the Lisa to the outside world through his iMac. This poster was dwelling on the fact that iMacs don't have native LocalTalk support and that you'd therefore need an adapter to hook a Lisa up to the iMac as this person has done (there are USB adapters out there to allow you to hook iMacs up to AppleTalk networks).

You shouldn't accuse people of not reading things if you're not going to read them yourself.

Just to make sure you understand what the hell was being talked about, I'll cite it here for you:

TCP/IP via MacIP to my RevB iMac running IPnetrouter. iMac Modem @ 50K to net.

And yes, I have to be this rude, because you were that stupid.

Obviously he did. You, however have obviously not read the article. Go read it again, and find out why he is talking about an iMac. Then try to think before you post next time.

oh - it's a mac ..... (1)

taniwha (70410) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772700)

I assumed he'd somehow managet to squeeze apache down to run under the Lisa Unix (which was swap based and limited to actual memory on hand for mac app size [kinda like a 7.1 mac :-] ...)

It was a matter of time. (4, Interesting)

I've seen a server or two running on Mac Pluses (8MHz 68000 vs. the Lisa/Lisa2/MacXL's 5MHz 68000), some Classics (8MHz 68000), LCs (16MHz 68020) and SE/30s (16MHz 68030), but never a Lisa.

Good show to whoever got it set up. Too bad it could never hope to handle a slashdotting...

Believe it or not, Mac Pluses and other 68k Macs (running either MacHTTP or some form of 68k BSD) seem to make pretty good servers for sites with fairly low traffic (Not to mention cheap!). Of course, you'll never see Slashdot running on a Quadra. :)

Nothing in my experience comes close to the iPic [umass.edu] . I suppose if they started weaving webservers into currency, that would be even more impressive (and quite a bit scarier). Still, the matchhead-sized server is quite cool.

A message from Linus Torvalds: Please Read (-1)

WeatherTroll (529760) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772614)

Hello Slashdotters, Linus here. Over the last 10 years we have done a great job in making Linux into a great operating system. We still have a ways to go if we want to defeat Microsoft, but I have no doubt we will get there if a major problem is dealt with.

This major problem is Richard Stallman (aka RMS). For years he has been the thorn in Linux's side. First, it's bad enough that he insists that everyone call Linux, GNU/Linux, as if he had anything to do with the initial creation or naming of Linux.

That isn't the biggest problem. The biggest problem is his appearance and attitude. The guy admits to being a goat fucker [geocities.com] . Who is going to take someone who says that seriously? Stallman hasn't bathed in decades. Who is going to want an operating system from someone who hasn't bathed in 20 years? As much as any of us may hate Bill Gates, he takes a shower every day, and that helped Microsoft be in the position it now is in. I am taking a shower every day to help Linux. Are you?

Stallman plucks dandruff out of his hair while he talks to you. That alone has got to turn you off Linux.

Stallman can't even clean up after himself [geocities.com] . This is equally true in his code just as much as he leaves used condoms all over the place. Frankly, his homosexual behavior and sex with goats that leaves all of these used condoms all over the place is simply unacceptable and makes Linux look like a joke. Please don't take this the wrong way. I have nothing against homosexuality except when it interferes with Linux.

In conclusion, I am tired of Dirty GNU Hippies like Stallman causing problems for Linux. He must be stopped at all costs. I call on the Slashdot community to rise up and reject Stallman. Do it for Linux!

The Lisa web server is pretty cool... But get this...

I've just barly managed to get an Microsoft Windows box to pretend it's a ... FILESERVER. Nobody will beleive me 'cause I had to train a monkey to hit the reset button everytime the monitor flashes blue - so far the monkey is doing ok, but I'm afraid there isn't a enough time for him to eat. Poor monkey.

Next I'm going to attempt to turn my NetBSD Dreamcast into an Indreima video game console, and after that hopefully I can get my TRS-80 to fake three-voice sound by hooking up a speaker to the casette port, another speaker on the video out port and another speaker on the RS-232 port, on second thought, I should just go but a C-64.

I won't be truly impressed until I see an a site being served with a turing machine, run manually by a guy drawing dots on a paper looking at a T1 line terminating in a green LED.

The only danger of this is that is may be the first recorded death due to slashdotting.

caferace (442) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772653)

I dicovered (a bit by accident) that my Casio QV3000EX digital camera makes a pretty good web server. Of course the 1G IBM Microdrive makes it ever more tempting. If I had an AC adapter I'd probably make it live on an off port, just for fun. Unfortunately the batteries only last about 15 minutes with the disc spun up.

Granted, I've not toyed with it under Linux, but it works just peachy in Windows.

Peyna (14792) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772673)

If you read the comments the guy made, he just put it up temporarily because some people asked him too, but there isn't any content, so he's taking it down at 8am, presumably to add content and fiddle with it some more. So for those of you complaining because it was slashdotted, it will be back, but I doubt he'll let /. find out so quickly if he can help it.

Apple is rewriting history (0, Flamebait)

markj02 (544487) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772743)

From the Apple Lisa [apple.com] link:

the Lisa (pictured below left) was supposed to be the Next Big Thing. It was the first personal computer to use a Graphical User Interface.

The Lisa was not the first GUI-based personal computer: Xerox, Apollo, and Sun all beat them to it by several years. The Lisa was a pretty blatant clone of Xerox's machines and it failed for the same reasons: it was too expensive and marketed to the wrong people. Only when Apple shipped a very stripped down machine called the "Mac" and marketed it to a different group of people did they finally succeed.

Wrong. (0)

joto (134244) | more than 12 years ago | (#2772752)

Not really. I've seen a lot of "embedded" webservers and webservers running on old hardware really. And when you think of it, well how hard can a minimal tcp/ip-stack and minimal implementation of http be?

Besides, the Apple Lisa has more than enough RAM for such a task (512kB), there's room for both a real tcp/ip stack and a real webserver without having to wrestle for space. And I am sure it has a serial-port you can run PPP over (which is a really simple protocol, if you choose to implement only what you need).

And, as someone already has mentioned earlier in this thread, the Lisa mentioned is so upgraded that it is no longer really a Lisa. Which makes it even less impressive.
