yesterday I managed to bring up my Indy with the new console code riped
out from 2.1.109. Today I've implemented new scrolling stuff for newport
abscon, which will give us a really fast console. My simple test program, 
which does 1000 printf("\n") in a loop, gives me about 62000 lines/second
on a 160x64 sized console. I also tried that program on my Dual P-233
with a Matrox Millenium and got about 260000 lines/s on a 80x25 sized
console (which is less than 1/5 the size of the Indy console).

My next steps are to bring up hardware cursor and palette stuff. So stay


See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
