(I know I can hide it) they replaced the button to show/hide the toolbar with... a button that makes it full screen? :roll: You can customize the toolbar. Right click on it and choose customize.

Re: Maxx Desktop - Followup

There is a script that fires up a series of things. I can't remember right now and I'm not in front of my computer. Look at your x startup script for your local user and all the related stuff MaXX install. Most likely there is a dead link or an outdate file. I had to go through all the MaXX scripts ...

Re: Maxx Desktop - Followup

If I remember correctly try using the latest version of Rox. MaXX comes with a local version of Rox. I had to use the the version that came with the OS to get mines working.

Re: WHat do we all do (occupation)?

Data Center Operations manager. Which means I really don't have much useful technical knowledge but I'm great at wasting people's time with silly questions and requests along with the ability to never give a straight answer when ask a question.

Re: 1981 Bell BLIT GUI

Rio (Plan 9 GUI) seem to to have some Blit inspiration but Plan 9 is a Robe Pike project so no surprise there.

Re: Repair horror stories?

Not SGI related. Arriving to work one early Saturday morning I was greeting by a pile of Sun 280r main boards and CPUs. The team I was relieving stated they are working on 280r for two shifts now in a data center around the corner. The original problem was onboard NIC not working. So they changed ma...

Re: Commodore 64 turns 30: What do today's kids make of it?

I never had the commodore 64, but I had the commodore VIC 20. My cousins had the 64. One neighbor had a C64 with what seem like every paraphernalia hook up to it. I think he ran that thing for years. I didn't do much programming on it, but I play Atomic Rat Race to death. My mother was a programmer ...

Re: NeXT at the Olympics

To be honest I wish I had the chance to have used NeXT in production or creative way back when it came out. Then I would have been able to to really compare it to OS X now. I was just hitting the teenage years then. I wish I had the chance to do the same with SGI. So any comparison would just be spe...
