Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

I wonder about the popping of power supplies. Is it occurring when you completely disconnect power - remove the kettle lead so speak. I ask because touching wood, since I have power going to my machines all the time, yet turned off and on, I haven't suffered that for a few years now.

Re: ADAT. And the secret is...

Thanks for all the good answers chaps. So, could you go from the OUT on Octane A to the IN on Octane B ? [Edit] Well indeed you can, although set at 32hz rather than the default 48 (may be a red herring). Also the cheapo adaptor does work on the Digital Out port on the Octane (the cheapo device has ...

They are mounted on my wall and I RDP into them, although you can use them directly with keyboard/mouse and they have...

If you have a web application running on a server, that just does DB serving and web pages, therefore no outgoing 'browsing', could this be affected do we know?

Re: Newbee needs help with error message...

Well, still saying the disk is bad, but to keep you entertained are you able to run the network setup from the tool chest?

Depending on your version of IRIX, this can be done through SYSTEM --> SYSTEM MANGER and then Networking & Connectivity. I can't recall earlier versions tbh.
