Cool flights are reality here... My VS4k90 is the main compiler machine,
a kernel is built in 55-75 minutes (custom 55 minutes, GENERIC 75 minutes),
this is a quite nice time. In one evening i get enough builds to check
several things. And after completeing support for 4000-[456]00 recently, i
also came a bit closer to the 4000-105A hack, which should feed 100 and 108
also then.

Only problem is this VAXstation-like DZ console port. But the machine runs
with a modified /etc/rc now, no console output, but usable via telnet :)


In TV, there are bluescreens to put a faked reality behind a real played scene,
in Windows, you sometimes see the real scene, when the fakes go out for lunch.
