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

Don't torture yourself Classic. I'm sure your wife has her own collections of stuff you can justify the purchase :p based on. My girlfriend for instance has an entire commercial class studio I made her pay for since her painting and drawing left messes on my hard wood floors of this house I'm rentin...

Re: Some concept screenshots I made a while ago

Window style looks suspiciously OpenBox-like. Are you using OpenBox to supplement Kronos? If I were to write a wayland compositor or X window manager patterned after 4dwm and the Irix Interactive Desktop, I'd probably start with fltk, and even though I despise C++, build the wm in C++ with the fltk ...

Re: Car Talk

>But if you go through all the trouble to replace the block why not keep it? Because I refuse to work on it after this. The engine bay is tiny and there's no way to detach the engine from the transmission so I have to remove them together. I want to fix the car and make it someone else's problem. Th...

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

No, I did meet an engineer who did some work on it however. I also inquired if Shenwei would build an Alpha based PC. The answer? They'd need at least 50-100k units at around $1,000 for the bare board including CPU but no RAM.

Sunway Taihulight is NOT Alpha based, I would know as I was in China, did some research there. its not Alpha-based, the Bluelight is however. Taihulight actually is a pretty weak supercomputer compared to its peers, the metrics shown on wikipedia are questionable at best.

Re: Indy reboots upon attempted booting

Progress. I mounted the drive in my working Indy I got as well. Slice 7 was dirty, managed to fsck it. But it's only /usr, I did want to see what the whole disk had. Slice 6 appears to have a corruption problem. I can neither mount nor fsck. It is an efs filesystem and I don't know how to handle dum...

Indy reboots upon attempted booting

Picked up two base Indy from a friend in NC two days ago, one works one doesn't, finally got around to the not working one. It has 5.3 installed on a drive. If I let it boot normally, it will go to the screen "The System is Coming Up" then a split second later the screen goes black, the In...

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

Yeah, I understand that Bill. Maybe, if you find an Onyx1 you could swap the skins of the Crimson over, hm? I dunno if that would work but they look identical in size.

Car Talk

So yesterday, my girl's 2013 Sonic's cylinder no.3 decided it was too hot and cracked, so I've got a dead rebadged Daewoo in my back yard I have to replace the engine in and then sell off. Clearly, after such a boneheaded event, I've made my girlfriend promise to let ME handle her car choices. She s...

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

So soon after getting them too. Crimsons look cool but power consumption, cost and the fact they can run only 6.2 is a downside.

Hope these find good homes. It's a piece of history even with it's faults.

Re: The Problem with Apple

Guardian452 did make a point a while ago on comparing Apple products serviceability to how cars have advanced. I thought on it some, and I have a video from Louis Rossmann to drive home some points. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVAmnV65_zw Watch this while I talk explanations. Cars do have diagno...

I wanted one for a while but I no longer want one. I do want to know, how many of the Hobbits survived.
