You call yourself human? You call yourself civil?
You ARE the retard I said you are. LOOK the word up, dipshit.
STOP top posting. That is WHY YOU ARE retarded. Got clue?
It IS Civil to ask someone to follow convention, and when they do not, berate them. That IS the way the military does it as well.
You be 'tard. Violent, and insulting to even a cave man, you would be. Your IQ drop 10 points with your every post.

Read your own posts ya twit.....I think that bong water you are pounding down has rotted your brain.... You are all over the map...first it's one year than another then you change the subject then you rip everyone when it actually gets down to the facts......It's typical....when you don't have facts you just start the blather......a futile attempt to steer one and all from the facts......once again...take your meager earnings from that graveyard shipping job you have and invest them in a clue!

Once again TardMatter is the self proclaimed Usenet cop! And you, above all, should comment on anyone being human or civil! Maybe you should park the bong and the bottle and go back a few months and read your own posts.......You crap on anyone that does not fit your anal retentive idea of what the newsgroups should be. Why in your wildest imagination do you thing anyone gives a crap what you think, know, might know or anything else about your pitiful existance........

Believe it or not as recently as June 2000 I had a contract assignment to write embedded code for an 8088 based system still in current use on new designs. Maybe even more surprising, this system is currently being installed in most new and existing jet aircraft designs.
The reason for staying with the 8088 is fully justified, since a shift to a newer processor would achive no performance increase in this particular application, while the cost of requalifying a new hardware and software design to FAA (DO178 et al) and ARINC standards would cost many millions of dollars.
The downside is that the chip producer may decide (or possibly has already decided) to cease production of the 8088, in which case the solution was to purchase and stockpile a sufficient quantity of the chips to meet future needs (a common military and aerospace practice).

Harry, it goes to show that it was and still is a good design! Just because it is old does not mean it cannot get the job done...take care, Ross

I just love how you can spend so much of YOUR time making non-sense troll blather posts. You are ridiculed.

It was quote directly out of your reply, dumbshit. You can't read. The part I quoted states directly who the poster is.
You are not only illiterate, you don't know how to decode a usenet post either. Pretty simple shit. I guess that makes you somewhere below pretty simple.

There are 8088 hybrid makers out there. Should be much cheaper to transition to the new chip. Possibly a mere BIOS code change.

As usual, you changed the subject.......you still quoted out of context..... Gurgle....Gurgle....slug......slug....there he goes...downing the bong water again! Keep that rubber helmet and those knee pads on....At least it should help keep you from becoming "even more demented", Tard Boy....

Are you sure that you don't have those two names reversed? It seems to me that the government organization known as ARPA was renamed to DARPA back in about that same era.
Whatever it was called, a network under ARPA did exist prior to 1969 (probably a precursor to a UUTP network), because at the time some of us older guys were already actively using the ARPA "Cheese Exchange" which was arguably an ancestor of todays Usenet.
Here's a pretty good capsule history:

Back in 1969 I was working for Eastman Kodak on both Lunar Orbiter and a number of classified projects, hence we were able to make extensive use of the ARPA network. It was obvous from the beginning where this would lead, but no one ever predicted its magnitude or ultimate popularity!

Couldn't tell you for sure Harry without an extensive search.....It was, a very long time ago! But, thanks for your input and take care, Ross

That was MY remark, and NO. It was originally DARPANET. It was changed to ARPANET, and has evolved into today's UUnet, or Usenet.
No... you used DARPANET. By 1969, it only consisted of 4 computers. By 1971, it was 37 computers, and was renamed ARPANET at that time.

No. Actually, it is an INCORRECT web page.
Which, at that time, was called DARPANET. It wasn't named ARPANET until 1971.
That's because a desktop computer was not even a concept at that time. All computers were that size of office building floors... entire floors... entire buildings even.

That's funny.....the first response I ever got from you was "top posting usenet retard" Is that your definition not berating" Make it up as you go.....but you don't follow your own advice!

How could "the internet" begin with something that happened before the very concept of internetworking existed.
You don't seem to have an understanding of what ARPAnet was in 1969 when it started, as compared to what The Internet was by the time it certainly did exist in 1983. Somewhere in there The Internet came into existence, and it certainly was not before 1972 when Bob Kahn thought of it.
Your comments about when AOL existed are just as silly.
