Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

Tried Vivaldi. I like it. Hopefully they keep it that way and the dopes stay away - the ones who don't appreciate things for what they are.

Re: Best workstation to start with?

Hi nekochaners, No flames or fights.... but I really to think is is hard to go past Octane as a great sgi box in terms of its combination of 64 bit irix support, modular and trouble free hardware versatility and connectivity, graphics & media flexibility and great design. Having recently been p...

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

The thing is a pain in the ass now. Leave it open for a few days and it hogs tons of RAM. Right now it's using 5.5-7.5 GB... It often jerks and lurches for no apparent reason other than it's consuming all of the resources. Once it uses all the resources it can, it will crash itself and leave a turd ...

Perhaps that's the reason my N64 wont output to my O2. Running 6.5.30 on there.

I usually resort to pushing the tray all the way in with moderate force. That keeps it closed 95% of the time. :) Yes. I know it's not the best thing for the motor, but it was already kinda busted when I got it.

Re: your latest purchase

Only problem with abandoning *nix is that the alternatives have been getting worse and worse. Windows 8 was so awful that it finally drove me off my XP system simply by demonstrating that things would never, ever get better there; if I had to use Win10 as a daily driver I'd slit my wrists. And OSX ...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

You don't want to start with an Indy. Too underpowered in most cases. High speced ones will cost you and you can get something better for your money anyways. Sometimes you can find O2's on Ebay for practically nothing, but beware, the exterior plastic is really as fragile as people here say. Sometim...

Re: your latest purchase

I don't require the latest performance or gadgets, I don't partake in pcmasterrace circlejerks and I own enough CRTs and analog equipment than most people twice my age. I don't mind being behind the times, personally. I don't use facebook, barely use twitter, I do use gab, but mostly under a troll ...

Re: Neat Tezro for sale in the US (No international shipping though)

If you ask them. They might make a one time exception to the no international shipping policy. I have had success doing so with other items in the past. Especially if you are the only buyer.

Ian's SGI Depot is more geared towards selling to commercial entities and thus the higher prices, because they can afford it. But he is a good person to deal with.
