Re: I Want This !

Ah, for some reason I thought Hamei was looking for one with the rule of thirds/golden ratio overlay :)

Re: I Want This !

Darktable seems to do it, and there are solaris and freebsd packages - not looked at the source though, so it might have a few things which Irix will bork at.

Re: Vintage hardware buying binge and other projects

Might be the drive - old amiga drives are a bit prone to duff heads as they don't have a dust flap - might be worth giving the drive a clean first?

Re: Ars on reality of using old 'puters & SGI accelerator id

That's not really an accelerator though, and is something most people can do already on their "other" machine(s)?

You could build up a customised FreeBSD/Linux etc image for that if you wanted to make life easier I guess.

Re: Ars on reality of using old 'puters & SGI accelerator id

From what I've seen of the current Amiga scene, accelerators these days are pretty much all FPGA softcore emulation, then ramping up the clock rates to get the performance and keep compatibility with the 68k series, ppc seems to have died off a bit. Not sure if FPGA's could cope with a MIPS 10K+ emu...

Re: I'm going to recap my Octane Power Supply

Just match the component values, and select good quality replacements, rather than the cheapest.

Re: Another Bargain????

Light bars are easy to fix with a couple of LED's and a couple of resistors, HDD and cages shouldn't be too much of an issue either...

Re: Another Bargain????

Good luck!

I had a look at a couple of listings, but I'm in a crappy location for anything listed with "collection only" :/

Re: Octane CPU module question

Sweet :D

Loving the Purple O2+ :)

My Octane2 started out as a single CPU R12K 400 too, the dual R14K 600 is much nicer though ;)
