Re: Inventory/Catalog

Achilles heel: you have to keep it up to date. Same here, but I think you always need to keep an inventory up to date, regardless what tool you use By far, the most important point. An inventory that is kept up to date in a paper notebook is infinitely more valuable than a sophisticated, semi-autom...

Re: New version of OS/2

I'm not sure I'd actually use it, but I might just get a license because I like to encourage this type of project.

Re: your latest purchase

I found out recently one of my favourite prog-rock groups had more than one album. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FM_(Canadian_band) I have FM's Black Noise on vinyl and CD :D You should listen to it. It didn't get me into music* But I eventually learned marimba and my dad gave me this record when I...

Re: Forum bug (arrows in code tags break posts)

Simple "code" tag. Since nobody else here has been able to duplicate your issue, I suggest that you go to the phpBB website to see if anyone has filed a bug report that matches your issue. https://tracker.phpbb.com If there are no such reports, then consider filing your own bug report, pr...

Not sure, it doesn't happen on other forums


Are you using a "code=php" tag instead of a simple "code" tag?

Re: End of the line for Itanium

Superdome X machines are already available. What do those run? Surely not HP-UX (I haven't kept up with HP's product line after PA-RISC got axed, though). HP officially supports Windows Server, RHEL, SLES, and vSphere on Superdome X. http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c05333408

Re: O2 Set SCSI boot drive

You need to set the boot environment variables in the nvram. I presume that you can't boot into IRIX at the moment, so you'll need to do it from the PROM monitor. Boot into the PROM monitor, and get the hard drive's SCSI ID from the PROM monitor's "hinv" command. Then use the "setenv&...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Now my main Windows machine is downloading the Creators Update. As far as I can tell, there aren't any new features in it that I particularly care about, aside from the miscellaneous security updates.

Pass the morphine. :)

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Anticipating root canal. Ugh. And how did that go? In the end, not too badly, but a few minutes into it, we discovered that the novocaine hadn't fully taken effect. It was my fault, really, since I had forgotten exactly how numb you have to be to be truly numb, so I gave my dentist the green light ...

Y888099 - what are you using to post to the forum? Firefox? Safari? Lynx? Edge? IE? Something else? What version? What character encoding are you using? I repeat my suspicion that your posting mechanism is using a UTF encoding that the forum software is not expecting, since others have been able to ...

Re: Most powerful MIPS workstation?

And IRIX has applications for 3D, CAD, scientific and audio production - things its good at. Its not a general purpose OS. I'll quibble with that, a little bit. For its time, it was a very reasonable general purpose OS, though the hardware was expensive, of course. As a matter of fact, SGI used it ...

Re: Several Origin 300s 4x600 / 2g/ gig-e/ RAD

Not much on the IRIX side since the power supply on my Fuel gave up the ghost, and I haven't had the time to replace it with the ATX PSU adapter I got from kubatyszko. I do have a few Indys, Indigos, and O2s kicking around, but I really should get my act together and find some new homes for them. It...
