Re: Barco Creator

I've been out of town for a while and had to clear out some storage lockers and low and behold I found some vintage Barco documents. I'm NOT talking about pirated software. I was licensed by Barco and the documents are "ORIGINAL BARCO" and came with a licensed system, just so you know I'm ...

Someone has made a book on Creator, the description sounds kind of odd. Wish I still had my Barco training binders.

Re: In which I confess my love for the Apple Network Server

What did you use for file serving services? Was it the Mylex RAID card? It wasn't my shop I was just an operator but as I remember we bought a larger system and they gave us the AWS in the package. I'm also pretty sure it had two raid cards with four drives on each card. We had millions of dollars ...

Re: In which I confess my love for the Apple Network Server

I worked in a graphics shop in the late '90s that had the biggest ANS that was fully loaded with memory and RAID. It was used for serving up images between Macs, NeXT workstations and server, SGI workstations and our Barco VMS server and print streamer. It was located in a dedicated server room and ...

Re: Barco Creator

I billed myself as a startup specialist with a background in physics so projects either went into full production and I left or they failed and I left, either way I was gone. The security printing company ended when the founder had a bout of anxiety brought on by hiring good people who did their job...

Re: Barco Creator

Good question modology. I believe its worthy of a book examining how such specialized industry tools became the pablum for the masses. I don't possess any of the hardware or software anymore so I can't get you any screenshots but I'm planning a trip to my parents house and will look through what I h...

Re: Barco Creator

Thanks, the photos are from 2002 and were some of the earliest I had in iPhoto so they were taken with a digital camera, it says a Kodak digital camera but I don't remember, I was documenting the shop before some renovations and just happened to snap them. You can't open anything? I don't remember t...

Re: Barco Creator

These photos show my office with the then brand new Mac TiBook running an early version of OSX before the shop converted. On the desk you can see a copy of Barco STRIKE!, looks like version 2.1 Strike! is the vector art companion to Barco Creator, we just called it Brix or lwbrix. https://farm3.stat...

Re: Barco Creator

I worked with Barco software and hardware at a few different companies. It was always client/server with the server being huge DEC VMS refrigerator sized multiprocessor giants and the clients being SGI workstations with special video cards and accelerator cards and huge beautiful Barco monitors. I'l...
