Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

What enabled the switch from PPC to intel was the fact that Intel chips could emulate a PPC faster than a native PPC Okay, nothing personal, but I'm pretty tired of hearing this get repeated. I may be perpetually butthurt that Apple went Intel, but what enabled the switch from PPC to Intel was the ...

Oh, I'd love a Pixar Image Computer. That's a unicorn riding a narwhal right there.

If you have Perl, you can also use HTTPi. It works with 5.005 and up.

I think it's convenient, but not terribly ergonomic. Having the trackpad off to the side is at minimum bad mojo. But ergonomics isn't the point of something like that.

I don't know anything about the screen or battery, either.

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

I'm not sure how sustainable it is either. I was actually willing to buy two (my wife wants to play with Linux), but they only let you buy one , so we got one and we'll share it. Meanwhile, I have a line on a decent RiscPC and I'm trying to talk myself out of it. (233MHz StrongARM, Ethernet pre-inst...

I'm going to be in Pittsburgh in July. Are there regular office hours, or do you need a prior appointment to gawk? The web site is "under construction" (and I don't do Faceblech).

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

The Pinebook would be interesting to me if it weren't yet another goddamn Chromebook with the fucking clickpad and chiclet keyboard. Ye gods . I'm looking at it as a portable RPi-type unit with internal hackability. I already have an Exynos Chromebook (it's in its box gathering dust). At $89 it was...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

motorola used to make a 'lapdock' that works with raspberry pi boards The Atrix dock will work with pretty much anything you can hack to plug into it. I have one for an old RPi which I use as a RISC OS laptop. Speaking of, the Pinebook is now taking orders if you already registered. I picked up the...

Re: Cobalt Thread

It boots from the disk. The easiest way is an install CD that's floating around which may be on ftp.netbsd.org somewhere. It needs an i386 system (I used an old Mac mini); you connect your MIPS RaQ to it and it does all the installation for you. I don't know if it's been updated for NetBSD 7.0. It s...
