Re: The week of Hell

I've been resisting, but we're reaching the limits of what we can do with remote IMAP mailboxes. What limits are you reaching? Google uses IMAP - I actually access all of my email, for all of my accounts, through it and IMAP. All of my clients are IMAP - phone, outlook, etc. and I never actually us...

Re: USB Mass Storage

I agree. 100 Mbit usually does fine for file share/transfer. It's not the speediest, but then again, the machine itself is not the speediest. My employer's network is 100Mbit. Windows Domain, CAD share, everything. Speaking from own experience, neither one of the ReadyNAS products are anywhere near...

Re: PDP-11 flightsim

The reason I was so surprised to see a Zip-drive is because they're so dog-slow, even back in the day. When Zip drives were introduced, SCSI versions were not dog slow. They blew away comparable CD-R technology in speed, although the capacity was lower. Parallel port Zip drives, OTOH, should never ...

Re: Are SCSI ssd drives available ?

Ian, in all that where does Windows have an advantage? Nothing in anything you listed, but perhaps he's simply making reference to the controller/drive manufacturers making utilities available to erase/refresh the drives even when the operating system doesn't natively support TRIM, such as Windows ...

Re: Are SCSI ssd drives available ?

I'm trying to figure out what skywriter and Ian are arguing about here. It looked like "Ian: SSDs are Fast! - but maybe you can get by with SAS, which would be pretty good in an SGI anyway." but "skywriter: No, SSDs are EVEN FASTER than you say - but you'll never need that in an SGI w...

Re: OpenBSD works on SGI now

I have a LG L222WS plugged by vga with an adaptator. It works fine in 1680x1050 with a MGRAS video card (on IRIX only for the moment) I'm never sure what posts like this really mean. What kind of adapter? An SGI 13W3 adapter? So, no SOG is required, and we simply know that the monitor is tolerant? ...

Re: 13w3 to vga won't work

Those eBay SUN/SGI adapters are SUN adapters. They will only work with SOG monitors on SGI as I described above . If you wish to confirm, use a multimeter and compare the pinout to those for your workstation in the owner's manual on techpubs.sgi.com. Pay particular attention to pins 3, 4, 5 if IIRC...

Re: A380

Ha! I actually can't stay awake on a flight anymore to save my life, assuming I can get a seat with enough space to get comfortable (at least a premium economy seat). I envy you. I have been on several overnight flights to/from Chile and the U.S. I got some sleep, but not a nights worth. Of course,...

Re: A380

I'm not sure I could bring myself to set foot on a Russian airliner - I'm not "If it ain't Boeing I ain't going", but those are at another level. Why is that? Russian stuff is actually very reliable. Maybe not the best looking, or the most comfortable but they work regardless of weather o...

Re: A380

I have flown both the 340 and 747-400s plenty of times in similar routes and I honestly did not notice much flight time differences in the same leg of the trip. Given that both planes have fairly close cruising speeds (the 747 is faster by 0.2 mach at best) maybe it is a placebo effect more than an...

Re: A380

In fact, in general the Airbus family suck. The A340s used on the Munich => SFO root are horrible. I haven't personally noted an issue with the A340 (Liked premium economy on Thai), but a colleague hates the 340 compared to the 747 for long haul flights simply because the cruising speed is so much ...

Re: Troubleshooting the "Graphics Configuration Error" On Fu

If you're not getting anything at all, then I think you still have a communication setup issue. I don't own a Fuel, but offhand I think the console and L1 may use different settings, what are you using? I think the console may use 38400 instead of the 9600 8-N-1 of the L1, or vice versa, something l...
