Re: Indigo2 Purple Bag

Looks like it might have had another pad in the large compartment just a couple inches from the keboard/mouse/cable divider. It would have fit the presenter display. You could show up to your sales meeting with your Indigo2 IMPACT 10000, overhead projector, and Presenter1280 display....you'd be one...

Re: Happy Holidays :)

well then enlighten us, what's the correct one? Its perfectly obvious what is meant even when wrong. I just thought its funny how a mistake seems to propagate so much. When used in the context of the sentence above, Nollag changes to Nollaig, so Nollaig shona duit (or the regional variation Nollaig...

Re: Happy Holidays :)

LOL. That incorrect Irish version seems to have appeared on a site somewhere at some stage and went viral. It now reappears all over the place every Christmas. Carlsberg even put it on their website one year.

Re: An item is only ever worth what someone is willing to pay... :)

But then, that's my point, ridiculous is in the eye of the beholder. :D One might think someone is crazy for buying a very famous painting for $20M, but if they then sell it on for $25, well then not so crazy. Or if the painting is in some way very meaningful to them, and they can afford it, then n...

Re: HP9000 C8000 noise

The c8000 was marketed as "whisper quiet", and there was a nice brochure that said joked it had "taken a vow of silence" http://www.alimartech.com/pdfs/hp_c8000_ds.pdf As UNIX workstations go its nice - quiet but still very powerful (2-4 cores, 32Gb max RAM, 4 x SCSI U320 disks, ...

Re: Cobalt raq3i

Likewise, I mirrored a couple of ftp sites holding many cobalt ISOs and packages (tens of Gb). I should still have them on an external HD somewhere.
If you know the name of what ISO you are looking for, and Titox doesn't have it, send me a PM.

WTD: Assistance from Dutch person

Hi, I've found some parts (small, fairly light) I've been looking for a while now on a Dutch webshop. Unfortunately the company only ships to the Netherlands. If there is anyone with a Dutch address that would be willing to help by reshipping to me in Ireland please let me know.

Re: Indy badges?

As mazzinia says, I think they probably used the custom R5k cover (#2) if they had it, and if not then they just worked with whatever parts they had in stock. During the summer I bought a spares/repair Indy. The model number is CMN B006T180, so a factory shipped 180MHz R5000 config, yet it has the R...

Re: [Sydney/AU] HP blade servers with 48Gb to 144Gb RAM per blade, EMC & Clarion SAN

Seriously, it has to go to a scrap metal dealer or someting soon. Don't know much about this hardware, but even if you have no takers for the system as a whole, the huge amounts of RAM would surely be worth putting on eBay? Especially if the modules are compatible with other servers, as HP RAM ofte...

[Gone] Alpha Architecture Reference Manual

I have a spare copy of the 1992 Alpha Architecture Reference Manual (Digital Press, 155558098X, 0130336637). In good condition.
Its ancient, but I just thought I'd check on here if its of use to anyone before I recycle it.

I'll cover postage within the EU27. If its of interest, send a PM.

Re: SGI Indy YouTube Video - Silicon Classics #7

Excellent video. It demonstrates the Indy's capabilities and features very well.

Did one of your Acclaim Indys include the N64 development board?

Re: SPARCstation 2 papers scans/PS/PDF ?

Presumably you have tried Adrian Cockcroft, who wrote that performance tuning white paper (and the related books) where you found the reference in? It might also be worth contacting the people behind NetBSD/sparc. They certainly created a nice repository of Alpha documentation available for download...
