Free Octane 2 in Berkeley

Hi all, it's been awhile! The forum said my last login was 2008. :) With some sadness I am parting with my last SGI, an Octane 2. If anyone would like it and can pick it up in Berkeley, it's yours! My only preference would be that it goes to someone who is developing/porting open source software. Co...

Re: My xmas holidays project

Nicely done! Beats throwing them all in a cardboard box. :)

Every time I see a picture of your collection, I'm reminded more of a museum curator than a collector... :)

I'm a total electronics noob, but since your box is wood, what are the esd foam/bags for?

Wouldn't that be "crappy" enclosure?

Re: Java or C/C++?

Sorry to so dense, but again... why on earth are you using OpenGL to do image processing? Primarily for speed. I got the impression that you work quite a bit with parallel architectures? Surely you're aware that modern graphics cards are basically massive SIMD parallel processors right? (Hopefully ...

Re: Java or C/C++?

Well for 15MB images @ 24 fps you are talking around 300+ MBps of disk bandwith, if that is where the images are stored. That is not a trivial IO, so it almost looks as if you are going to be IO bound. It's certainly not trivial, but my target market generally has RAID/SAN setups that can handle th...

Re: Java or C/C++?

You need to understand that moving 1-15MB data elements is not a trivial task. Yes, absolutely, sorry I wasn't clear about that; I'm working with data sets of that size (actually that times 24 frames per second), and my tactic to sustain that kind of throughput is to not process the data with C++ c...

Re: a call to arms

Hey DJ! Wattup, G? :) FF2 = Background FF3= Foreground Coulda fooled me. :) B.T.W.: are you really using FLTK for DJView, right? :) Absolutely; it's self-contained, lightweight, and portable. What's not to like? (Though I'm not a big fan of their layout manager, so I wrote my own to work like Qt.)

Re: Java or C/C++?

Hey R-ten-K, I appreciate your thoughts on the subject; I'm not trying to bait you, just curious what your opinions are on software development. Not having gone to college, I'm always interested in talking to people who have had more formal training than myself. I was wondering if I could ask your o...

Re: a call to arms

Since so much of their base is the people who cannot or do not run Windows Vista on the newest hardware, I wonder if this move will actually backfire on them generally ? Can they take enough share from IE 7 to make up for what they are going to lose by screwing their staunchest supporters ? Or will...

Re: a call to arms

And if they have enough resources to spend worrying about the icons and themes for Windows Vista, I think they have enough resources to worry about the basic functionality of the program. They just aren't interested in supporting low-end users becasue it's not sexy. Yeah, that's dumb. But I'll bet ...

Re: a call to arms

It's not just the "hobbyists" either; I know of a couple non-profits that refurbish thrown-away computers, install open-source software on them, and then give them away free to people who need them. This has the dual advantage of re-using older hardware instead of scrapping or recycling it...
