Re: Liquid Immersion Cooling

Hi. I've done a few small tests with fluorocarbons but haven't gotten to the point of doing open bath immersion due to the cost of the fluid. The surface enhancement coating is called a BEC "boiling enhancement coating" that is applied using a spraying process. Phil Tuma from 3M has prepar...

Re: amateur dns poisoning

Hi Hamei. Is it possible that the great firewall of China might be kicking in on your system and performing DNS hijacking? I don't know if this is relevant to your situation but a duckduckgo search of the IP address (59.24.3.173) brought up a mention in the following article: http://www.dit-inc.us/n...

Re: Liquid Immersion Cooling

Hi robespierre. Ah, I thought you meant Novec 1230, which is entirely different (it is a perfluoroketone). the HFE Novec 7000 is available in 1 gal bottles for about $300. Thanks for your responses to my questions and the pricing info for a bottle of Novec 7000 fluid. It's pretty amazing to think a ...

Re: Liquid Immersion Cooling

Here are a few video clips from Youtube / Vimeo that show the OBI Open Bath Immersion cooling process. It's pretty amazing to see the Novec 7000 fluid boiling and circulating over the motherboards at low temperatures like 34°C. The process works without any aluminium heatsinks or fans mounted on the...

Liquid Immersion Cooling

I have a question for the HPC computing people on Nekochan. Does anyone have an idea on the price of 3M Novec dielectric liquid fluid? I'm interested in the idea of doing a liquid immersion cooling experiment on a PC and would like to get a ballpark idea of the cost for the fluid before I call any 3...

Re: particle clipping on ocean surface in Maya

I've been playing around with a little side project and have hit a minor roadblock, so to speak. I have an emitter emitting blob particles onto an ocean surface in Maya 2013 that are getting clipped out on the higher parts of the ocean. Here are a few ideas off the top of my head: ⋅ You c...

Re: Litecoin Mining on IRIX

Yes, assuming it is possible. One can only try their best when fighting with GCCisms in code.

Re: Litecoin Mining on IRIX

I've only got GCC installed on my SGI O2. If someone wants to provide ssh access to an IRIX box with MIPSpro installed I'm willing to compile an optimized version of cpuminer.

Litecoin Mining on IRIX

As part of my 2014 Winter Warmup RetroChallenge project I thought it would be fun to compile cpuminer for IRIX and see how my trusty old SGI O2 would work at Litecoin mining. http://www.andrewhazelden.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/irix-minerd-hashing.png Download If you are curious to benchmar...

Re: BASIC

I thought the best way to prepare an existing GNU C program for use with a "real" C compiler was to run this command on the development folder first:

Code: Select all

rm -rf *.c

This step fixes most of the GCCisms that are present in the source code. :lol:

Hi tomvos. I'm sure Mac OS XI 11 will offer a revolutionary idea of getting rid of files and storing everything in Newton style soups . :roll: Andrew Well, it's kinda OK-ish.

Another node based image editor from the mid-to-late 90's was Wavefront Composer that was later renamed to Maya Composer.

Re: Old Alias and Wavefront apps screenshots...

Hi Foetz. Thanks for the StudioPaint screenshots! I have only used Studio Tools briefly so I'm interested in hearing the texture painting workflow in StudioPaint. Did Alias StudioPaint use a single surface material with a shading switch node to seamlessly paint a texture across multiple NURBS patches?

guardian452, It looks like my nekochan "User Control Panel" board style was set to use the prosilver style and your screenshot uses the subsliver2 style. The funny thing is I don't remember changing any of those settings on my account. Cheers, Andrew P.S. I would love to see some screensho...
