Bytefest and vintage collection

Jirka, is this yours? https://swarmik.tumblr.com/about I found the page whilst looking for information on the Bytefest. Shame on me, I found out about Bytefest only after 8 years in the Czech Republic. http://www.bytefest.org/english-info2/ A vintage and retrocomputing festival. Anyone here from Cen...

Re: PCI quirks on linux

I don't know 1% of what do you - and I was never able to successfully compile the kernel in any of the 4-5 PPC machines I've ever possessed, so I can't help much.

But I wish you luck, really. It sounds like you are going through a painful endeavour.

Re: eBay, not mine: HP 9000 C8000 new in box

Btw, my point is: a good seller should provide customer care. Assistance means answering questions, being informed and provide information! They don't. Sometimes they just don't know. I got my IntelliStation new in the box from a company in the Netherlands that handles getting rid of things from co...

Re: eBay, not mine: HP 9000 C8000 new in box

I guess at this point it's more of a collector's item than anything else, and it's part of the deal to get it up and running.
Although I concur, dealing with clueless sellers can be a pain. I'd probably bite if I had the money to spare.

Re: PCI quirks on linux

I guess the deal with IBM is... buy an IBM-branded expansion card, with an IBM hardware part number (made by IBM or not), get an IBM technician installing it, have a support contract.

But I have almost zero experience with anything non-x86 besides power, so I can't say.

Re: IRIX for x86

I haven't logged into my LinkedIn account in years, and I doubt that him, being retired, would be logging in often either. But I'm bold enough to dare asking, if no one with more SGI-mojo here is willing to take the chance.

IRIX for x86

I bumped into this: http://mattst88.com/blog/2009/04/09/IRIX_for_x86_and_the_700MHz_O2/ I looked around to see if it was already not posted, but after 15-20 minutes couldn't find it so... You all probably already know, but posting anyway. (I'm reading all I can to decide what to buy when I'm ready t...

Re: your latest purchase

On the Nikon side I bought a N90s to scratch an itch (remembering the Kodak DCS 420 I had access to when they were new) - it has a sticky button but otherwise nice, came with an AF 50/1.8 which seems to do a little nicer work than the Canon 50/1.8 so I haven't been bothered by it at all. I have a N...

Re: your latest purchase

Nikkor 135mm DC f/2 lens. I want one since I was 15 and I finally found a good deal. There are better optics around there, but I'm a sucker for well built hardware - and this is pure metal and glass! Attaching a picture of my camera and a sample photo taken at a garden near my place here in Prague. ...
