Re: How to measure time?

I don't wear a watch anymore (I used to wear a solar powered Casio G-Shock with WWVB automatic time synchronization too, and it may even be the same model as smj's), but I do have a CSS Time Machine 1000A which provides a GPS-based time source over NTP.

Don't be sorry, because I never got around to fixing this. I'll have to try your method!

Re: your latest purchase

Got one of the hard to find 1GHz G4 upgrades for the beige PCI Power Macs. Though the bus holds these systems back, the L3 cache doubles to 2MB, so that should help quite a bit. My 7300 has the 800MHz/1MB version of this card and this ought to be a very welcome upgrade, since it is primarily a class...

Re: your latest purchase

Any pearls among the software? There's a RiscPC on the other desk here, plus an A5000, A540 and R140 under it (been playing with RISC iX). Giveme a shout if you hit any snags with yours. Unless someone has already done it, cut the battery out of the RiscPC _now_ and clean the m/b with vinegar/disti...

There's a (somewhat) native OS X build of Oni, too.

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

I know that pain. I had my first 1.2GHz iBook G4 cook its hard disk (the feetsies on the bottom don't provide nearly enough ventilation; I slap on bigger ones from the hardware store) and I managed to make a mess out of the bottom half. I never did get it replaced.

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

Yeah, the hue lights are stupid expensive, but having tried a few I think they have the best API and flexibility.

But, it works on IRIX! viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16730085

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

The main thing you're going to run into is, even by Power Mac standards, the iBook G4 wasn't super zippy with the possible exception of the very last generation (I myself use a 1.33GHz 12", and I would consider it useable for most things, but not quick; its main advantages over my MacBook Air a...

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

I have devices that control lighting, security cameras and power switching. They have internal APIs and sit on the non-routable network. I manipulate them through scripts I write and maintain myself. Here's an example: http://www.floodgap.com/software/huepl/ I was given a Nest as a gift from someone...

Re: Macintosh Performa 475 replacement HDD

I also really like the Q605/P475. I put a full '040 in it and it runs NetBSD pretty well.

Re: SCSI fuse advice (or, how to kill a ThinkPad 800 with a SCSI2SD)

No, it caused the fuse to open . What I'd like to do is, at least initially, bypass it and make sure the system works with the original devices, and then desolder and replace the fuse. The fuses were tested with an ohmmeter, like the quote you gave. There must be a fuse that's still open I haven't f...

Re: What kind of camera

You could consider a simple composite camera in that case. Your O2 would do all the recording itself. Something even like an off-the-shelf security camera could work once you convert the BNC connector to RCA (most of them come with this part). However, see this thread: http://forums.nekochan.net/vie...

Re: Article: The Coming Software Apocalypse

I have a lot of IoT devices here for home automation, but they live behind a very strict firewall that cannot route to the Internet directly, and I manipulate their APIs directly instead of using whatever client they offer.

Re: What kind of camera

I personally use the Canon Vixia HV30, which is an HDV camera but has a DV mode. Prior to that I used a JVC DV camera, but I don't remember the model number or where it went. The Vixias seem to be pretty well regarded and mine works quite well, though I use it primarily with the Power Mac G5 for HD ...
