Re: James Bond…

Live and Let Die was my fav bond movie, possible because of that 70s look and great music by wings.

I also remember the 8bit game James Pond, which always makes me chuckle somewhat when thinking of Bond films..

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

Yes I saw you had that issue in your comp post. I am though, and obviously it no guarantee, hear my drive spin up. I think tomorrow, I will take the drive apart, see what it's doing, then a trip in the loft, actually I may do that tonight. I'm in no rush, and I'm not spending a fortune on it, and so...

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

There are a couple of controller boards on ebay for next to nothing, but then if they don't work, then it's just wasted. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IBM-72-Pin-MCA-ESDI-Internal-Hard-drive-Controller-/152526774199?hash=item23834ddfb7:g:5Z8AAOSwdGFYrxX0 I think I will have to visit my loft and see what...

Re: SGI Power Supply Tester

PS2 Mouse separate, PS/2 Keyboard separate IN --TO-- USB OUT (have a similar adaptor for my IBM Power InteliStation that you plug in a PS/2 keyboard in one cable, and a PS/2 mouse in the other that should come out as a USB.. but it doesn't work). PS/2 to USB I think is somewhat of a commodity; at l...

Re: SGI Power Supply Tester

This is great, and this is what I would want in THE ultimate adaptor.. Just my needs really and I do have many adaptors, but these have eluded me. SUN (Type 6 below? None USB & Keyboard and Mouse in one) IN --TO-- PS/2 / USB OUT. The SUN keyboard 5/6 is a really neat keyboard, if a little soft a...

Re: Java

Thanks both, and yes Mr Fox, 21st century.. jeeze time flies.

I don't want to go too modern, the device I'm connecting to has an old version of Java.

Java

I've always dismissed any install conflicts with JAVA, since I DON'T NEED JAVA!!!

Well I do now.. ahem..

So, am I right, latest Version of IRIX JAVA is 1.4 ?

Need to get my FUEL in the 20th century.

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

My daughter gave me her old iPhone (iPhone 6 I think.. it big anyway) a month back, she said, Father, I'm sick of seeing you with a plaster holding your phone together..

I dropped it a week later.. and the screen smashed FFS!! I can't show her, I'll end up on the Jeremy Kyle show.

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

I am actually quite excited about it's arrival, (as always) and I guess it should arrive tomorrow fingers crossed. I've owned a few MCA machines in the past from IBM's Tower to a very nice Apricot model [Q-something] which ran XENIX with it's rather cool predictive command line. That as I said earli...

Re: Fibre Channel Switches

Well, I went and purchased a very very cheap Silkworm 3850, I thought it's a good gamble to get my hands dirty, understanding that it probably hadn't got the admin/root password. It arrived today, I powered it up and tried connecting to the serial, no joy there. Correct cables are at home. So I conn...
