sb-win32-sockets compiling

I've been able to get all of the sb-bsd-sockets code (ignoring tests.lisp for now) compiling under win32. That means it all works right? Well, this only gets me to the point of having it compile without falling over. Now I need to go back and put in all the alien function definitions that I know are missing.

It is at least something.

End of an Era

The 80's are officially over. In highschool, I remember visiting the high-end AV stores with their plush theatre rooms. These were the days before plasma screens, and the state of the art was the Laser Disk. An LP-sized monstrosity that seemed to be always demoed using one movie - Top Gun. Ohh, how I loved that movie. I just knew I could bag all the chicks if I only had a Laser Disk and a copy of Top Gun. For that reason, this story made me very sad today.
