View Full Version : War Games, the movie

I just saw the movie "War Games" yesterday for the first time. I realize that movie is old, but someone who has seen that movie and is knowledgeable about computers, tell me what kind of computer did that kid used to hack into that "Joshu" computer (was it a PC, Atari? and maybe guess on what processor it probably used, could it be the 8088 CPU)? And what Operating System was he using?

Haven't seen the movie, but if you remember what the computer looked like, you might find it at the Obsolete Computer Museum (http://www.obsoletecomputermuseum.org/)

I hang out at their helpline a lot, but right now it's down. You'd be amazed at how many people are fixing up the old dinosaurs and running them...XT's, 386 laptops, anything you can think of...

Soon as I come up with all the answers...they change the questions!!
