It appears that the OS is currently more buggy in 1.74 than 1.6. Just so you know. I will have to spend some extra time fixing that, as I can only do 1.6 when at school, cause I am using my Chromebook, with the Mimic emulator.

EDIT: I now have my Chromebook running Minecraft with ComputerCraft 1.74, so future builds should run better (hopefully).

So this OS is built around the north bridge api?

Technically, all it is at the moment is a glorified CraftOS terminal. The only part of the Northbridge API that it will probably include normally is an app store, which will include some official apps that use the API more so. Though, the app store on the server end is not yet fully functional, so right now all it is a terminal, with file protection on the OS files.

EDIT: The above statement is no longer true, except the part about the app store.

I didn't want to post on here each time there is an update, but I have now decided it isn't such a bad idea as it bumps it to the top of the list.
I case anyone is wondering, I am currently working on fully re-writing the file protection api in such a way that it can be used to protect files not only from the system files. It will be Linux-esc with three user-based permssions types (root, owner, other) and three access types. The main difference is that the access types do not include an "execute" permission as I assume it would irritate quite a few users that aren't familiar with it. Instead, it has a "no-access" permission where the file cannot even be read.

FYI: it's trwxrwxrwx, where 't' is the file type (character device, block device, regular file, dirent), 'r' is read, 'w' is write, 'x' is execute.
The permissions are organized into groups of 3, called triads, where the first triad is owner, the second is group, and the third is others.

Ok, but I was just using that as inspiration, I already know how that works.
My way of accomplishing it is just storing permissions in a serialized table within a file.

New Alpha Build v0.7ba!
Technically, first alpha build, but here we go.

Changelog:
- Redid the login script slightly
- Added the Northbridge Files API

Accessible from the same installer and uses a new installation format! All files and directories are compressed into a single file that is downloaded then uncompressed.

If you have any issues, use the "submitLog" program!

Not sure. Possibly.

EDIT: Done.

I'm still a bit confused. What is the Northbridge Network, what is this OS, what does it do? You don't have much of a description of it.

Northbridge Network is the API that the OS is written around. The OS has the listed features. I also put a link to the about page on the Northbridge website.

"Northbridge is a project that I have been working on for quite some time. Originally, it was intended primarily for use on the BlueCircuit Server, and was going to be run entirely in game. Though, as the project evolved, I discovered how much easier it was to develop with a PHP webserver than using ComputerCraft's modems to relay messages to an in game ComputerCraft server to hold and send data.

Now, lucky for all of you, it is open for public use now! At some point there should hopefully be a client for ComputerCraft and possibly OpenComputers to use in game."

Yummy buzzwords! What I'm asking is, what does it do, what is its API, how does one utilize the Northbridge Network, etc. etc. etc.

The API currently includes user logins, online file storage, and ComputerCraft "push notifications".
It is currently only accessible to everyone via the OS atm. I have not put time into the documentation of the PHP functions yet although there is partial documentation of how to use the functions via the APIs included in the OS.
The "public use" part was written as being very optimistic that I would put out documentation soon and hoping that someone didn't point it out until documentation was out :{

:P Well documentation is kinda important. If you could quickly write some documentation that would be neat, so I can experiment with what you're creating :D

Well, I started...might take a while longer than expected.

EDIT: I am going to see if I can make it auto-pull functions from the PHP scripts so documentation is always updated :)
After getting the first version out of course.

EDIT2: Documentation for all PHP functions: http://northbridge.dx.am/docs/PHP/
