Maybe a new project, storing all CPC software and firmware on a metal punch cards? But will the computer chips survive a powerful EMP like one from a nuclear bomb blown up high in the atmosphere
Quote from: mr_lou on 20:19, 12 May 20Wouldn't the optical discs survive such a thing?
Quote from: Bryce on 20:59, 12 May 20It's a stupid scenario anyway. If anything survived, then it's technically NOT the end of the world.

Quote from: tjohnson on 22:38, 12 May 20Discs, but what would you read them on and how would power it.
Quote from: mr_lou on 21:18, 12 May 20An apocalypse doesn't have to be the end of the world. It can also just be something really destructive and damaging, like an EMP.And optical discs would survive such a thing - I think. So hurry put all your data onto optical discs! M-Disc will last 1000 years!
Quote from: ivarf on 22:56, 12 May 20But would the microchips survive? What kind of electronics would survive? Would pretransistor tech survive the most powerful EMP? Surely a CPC based on WW2 tech would need a room to fit. It would take some time to develop a reader capable of reading those optical discs too. As long as one CPC and monitor survived in each town we would be fine. LOL
Quote from: Bryce on 10:03, 13 May 20True, however, the video is titled is "This secret operating system will survive the end of the world", not apocolypse.
