Trying s6-rc in a VM

Hi list,

I don't know if this will be useful to anyone, but I've been playing with
making s6 based VMs and containers for the last month or so, and my latest
experiment is s6-rc in a jor1k browser based VM.

To try it out, point a recent version of Firefox or Chromium (and any other
browser the jor1k project supports) at

The files are loaded into your browser and the emulation runs on your
computer within the browser (it is an OpenRisc simulator in javascript)

Its still a bit rough around the edges (most of the example services are
currently left un-started), but I'm working on it. Hopefully it is
functioning enough to give a taste of s6-rc to anyone who wants to try it
out without having to install it onto a machine.

(I am not affiliated with the original jor1k project; I just cloned their
VM repository and put s6-rc into the virtual filesystem. The original jor1k
project is here: )
