every time your computer boots the processor wakes up thinking it's 1978 and the bootloader and kernel have to work together to gently coax it back to reality
@jordyd unless booting into real mode is disabled, in which case it wakes up thinking it's 1982 (well, more like 1985 since 286 memory protection wasn't kept)? :p
@jordyd So, every CPU is secretly your hippie grandpa.
@drequivalent I wish I had a hippie grandmother
@jordyd this sounds like the start of 17776
@jordyd dammit, someone already said that!
*slinks away slowly*
@hector this explains why it's so confused
@jordyd sounds like my brain...
@nuhn this is your brain on x86
@jordyd sounds like me on an average morning. wasn't even born until the year after. (crap. nobody do the math. ;^)
@jordyd I'm useless before my morning soda too
Little does it know that it will spend its entire session pretending to be in 1976!
@jordyd compatibility is a hell of a drug
@lupine they've got compatibility completely backwards if you ask me
