Excavations of the settlement of the XII century Bobble

Found two ancient settlements, Dating back at least 800 years. Discover the ancient settlement managed during the construction of the second ring road. Archaeologists have finished the excavation.

During exploration.

Find the objects — a great success. In fact, ancient settlements, as a rule, not marked on the ground. These were typical of arable fields that have long been used for economic needs.

IT from the past — how are “digital archaeologists”

Drawings of long-forgotten processors, initial codes of programs or games legendary, unknown works of art – all these rarities today quickly become costly Antiques. So, like any other Antiques, it is possible to earn.

We live in an age where information is practically unable to get lost – as once digitized, the data will always remain in electronic form. But the standards and formats change, storage media have a limited life or simply become obsolete. Together with them “obsolete” and sent to the shelves of the pearl of great data.

At the time of its appearance, it was worth $25 — this is 4-5 times cheaper than competitors like the Intel 8080 and Motorola 6800. All, I mean who saw the movie “the Terminator”, will remember one of the first scenes: with a view “from eyes” of a cyborg. Running there lines of code is the MOS 6502 assembler. After the release of the processor from use of his drawings disappeared, since the MOS 6502 was created by a pencil on Whatman paper. Continue reading
