I was disappointed with the writer of the description. C:\BARDS_TALE would not be allowed. DOS only allows an 8.3 filename.
Even with that in mind this is still a cool shirt.

I never used DOS, my IBM PS2 has Windows 3.0 running at 16MHZ with 6 meg of RAM.. It helped to install a math co-processor. I had to replace the keep alive battery a few years ago and reload everything from my back-up floppies. That took a whole day..

As much as I would love to play the original x-wing game on my phone, no one should be encouraging George Lucas to revisit the past.

1981? I don't think a hard drive was available for the IBM 5150 until 1983. Prompts in that era would look like:

A>

(IBM PC)

or

]

(APPLE IIe)

I do like the shirt though

Here on 3eyore's mountain we have a ThinkPad equipped with interchangeable hard disks with DOS 6.22, Windows 3.1, Windows 98,and XP SP2 builds.

We also have spare parts for that ThinkPad.

We also have vacuum tube radio transmitters and receivers.

We also have generators. And MREs. And weapons.

Ya just never know.

Woot, you need to get yourselves together on the sizing chart. Today's write-up has links to two different sizing charts. How is a buyer supposed know which one is correct?

this one is in the orange box: http://s3.amazonaws.com/wootblogfiles/2012.02.21a.tee.size.html

And a different one is two inches lower. Since its a pop up there is no link.

If you don't know what you're selling, it brings the whole changeover into question.

There should be an accompanying shirt offered that says "Only true geeks know that January 1, 1980 was on a Tuesday." I would definitely be in for one of those too!

There actually was a valley in between my house and my elementary school, so I really did walk uphill both ways! Admittedly, not always in the snow.

It's kinda sad that the kids these days are probably trying to figure out what kind of smiley face this is supposed to be.

Ironically, in 1981, almost nobody had a C: drive. Most of us used single our dual floppy drives because hard drives were so expensive. So unless your company had a computer with a hard drive, you probably only saw A:\> or B:\>.

Me to my daughter: do you know this shirt means?
Daughter: oh cool - it's an angel smiley face, right? Like with a halo?
Me: no dear. It's not an emoticon. It's the C prompt.
Daughter: whatever dad. I'm gonna go chat that cuz it's a totally cool angel smily face.

Love the shirt! Worried about all the negative comments about the 'off-shore' blanks. Saw another discussion elsewhere that said the all cotton blanks weren't bad. (Which is what Woot is buying.)

I'm in for one and we'll see what the shirt is like.

Confirmed. Gold box will be added momentarily.

Really love this shirt and want to get it for my husband, but since men's shirts are on an Anvil blank, I think I'll probably pass. Sorry, Kevlar51.

I'm boycotting these overseas blanks. It felt so good to buy shirts here knowing they were made and designed in America.
Boo on you, who's ever desision it was to ruin shirt.woot.com

Congrats, Kev!

Also I'm not sure C:\BARDS_TALE could have been a directory... 10 characters. Wasnt it limited to 8?

Would have been C:\BARDS_~1

I WAS going to buy this shirt, but since it clearly says that I can't wear it while playing around with my trusty C64 that I've had since I was 9 (in 1984), I can't buy it. Screwed yourself out of a sale there, Shirt.Woot.Writer.

It's pretty awesome - but in 1981 you would have had to have been rich or had a ram disk to get a C:> - should have been A:>

The colon (and backslash) we're introduced with MS-DOS. MS-DOS got it's start in 1982 when Microsoft bought 86-DOS (which used an A: prompt). Up until that time IBM DOS simply used A>

Yep, because there were 8 bits per byte.

Yes, there are 8 bits per byte but that doesn't put the limitations on the 8+3 file system. That was OS dependant. 8 bits per byte mearly limits the character set to 255.

Probably you had shoes, too.

FWIW when I was in college I had two classes right after one another on completely opposite ends of campus and there were several quite steep hills between them. And when it isn't snowing in that little town, it's raining.
