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.

MIPS sold

Just read today that Imagination Technologies (owner of MIPS) has been sold to Canyon Bridge (the Chinese private equity firm with government links). https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/sep/25/imagination-technologies-shares-canyon-bridge-takeover Not really a surprise since the loss of the Ap...

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...

Re: your latest purchase

Is this a 100 Mbps NIC then? No, it only creates a second port which I believe has the same hardware as the first, so 10Mbps only. I wonder why SGI never thought about external enclosures for single CDROM and disk drives that match the design of the base machine (i.e. CDROM for Octane, etc.). They ...

A HP 9000 Model 712/80 (w/maxed out RAM and additional VRAM module installed) thanks to FlasBurn . [/code] Nice. I've got a 712/100 with 192Mb which is quite slow, but probably one of my favourite machines. They were never speed demons - even back in the days these were current, they were mainly us...

Re: eBay, not mine: HP 9000 C8000 new in box

There is also a problem with the firmware, which needs to be updated in order to correctly handle the SMP upgrade. Machine already shipped in SMP configuration (like my sold C8Ks) already come with the right firmware, other machines (like my third C8K) ... it depends. Of course, upgrading the firmw...

Re: End of the line for Itanium

It didn't kill off MIPS, just HPC MIPS, since MIPS is still used in network and embedded applications. I don't mourn MIPS, it's a dirty architecture with nasty register spill tendency, similar to SuperH. Itanium has its own problems - strictly in-order, difficult to optimize without the right compi...
