Re: your latest purchase

Our cat isn't allowed in the server room either, but she is allowed in the office (since the laundry room she lives in adjoins it, there's really be no realistic way of keeping her out anyhow).

Re: Raptor Engineering announces TALOS II

Don't expect it to be commodity PC cheap. You're still going to pony up for this, but POWER9 is kick-ass and it'll be worth it. I've got my pennies ready. Take all of my money.

Re: Raptor Talos POWER8 Workstation

Yup, I'm in line for one. It will be the scale-out POWER9 variant, per my discussion with Raptor.

I'm more interested in the HP equipment I see on the side. Are those K-class cabinets I spy?

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

Yeah, TenFourFox isn't going to like that. There's not a whole lot I can do there. Sorry. :|

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

TenFourFox breaks completely unfortunately.


I may not be able to fix it, but what goes wrong? (Screenshot?)

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

Indy, but mostly for regions of nostalgia (I was seriously tempted by it as a starving undergraduate, and I played a lot of sgidoom on one at the Salk Institute while pretending to work).

Re: [ebay UK] Mips flavoured Qube2

I think he just plugged it in, saw the LCD lit up, and then copypasta-ed from some stupid spec site.

"The processors seem rather busy"

Well, that's because it's a 66MHz. Poor things probably strained in BeOS.

Re: Firefox3 rebuild

Two reasons: no current LLVM (I know there was a porting effort, but not of anything recent), and I don't believe IRIX supports thread-local storage, which Rust requires. (10.4 definitely doesn't, for example, which is why I gave up on Rust on Tiger OS X PowerPC.)

Simple: we don't drive them. They get sold to the junkyard for scrap value or sit on blocks in somebody's back pasture for a few decades until they disintegrate.


Obviously you've never lived in San Bernardino. :?

Re: Firefox3 rebuild

It's something I'd like to work on again at some point, but TenFourFox is taking up most of my time and Fx has an inherent limit on mips-irix because Rust will never support it (so you'd be looking at no more than 45, maybe 52).
