Re: ClassicUnixGuy Channel Online!

Neat! If you have a camera (or even a phone with a decent camera), you might consider filming one of your Indys for some parts of the video. While I sometimes use pictures from the web, especially in my history series or if I don't have the system I'm talking about, I try to film systems for real wh...

Re: Free Indigo2 Impact in Toronto

I sent him a reddit PM as I visit Toronto often. Impact 10K would go well with my XZ R4K.

Re: Got some of the first parts for my Fuel, so here's Part 1 of my Fuel series. Any thoughts?

I don't know, a lot of people really like when I lift things :) . I have plans for lifting a deskside, should I obtain one, using a car jack and wooden frame. If I get a rack system, I'll probably make some excuse about atoms not technically touching nuclei so the Onyx rack is hovering and then cut ...

Here it is! I install the Fuel ATX adapter (thanks kuba), an ATX PSU, and a Dallas chip, as well as connecting to the L1.

Auto tech section, but all auto tech must be IRIX powered. Anyone have an XIO card for OBD2 :mrgreen: ?

Re: How do you explain....

Hey, for like two years when I was 9 or 10 my main desktop ran Vista because I had a spare key. I actually quite liked Vista, but the audio drivers for my motherboard were XP only, so I never had audio on that box.

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

X220 here. I'm always on the lookout for a broken 701c or 701cs (I have a working one but don't want to cut it up) to convert into an ARM (or maybe x86) SBC-powered thingy. I bet the keyboard protocol, whatever it is, could be sorted out with an Arduino/Teensy.

Re: How do you explain....

I am also fascinated by AVs, and I don't have anything against them at all. I just want to ensure that the car I'm riding in isn't easily exploitable. Nobody can write bug free code, so while there's a lot to be gained by looking closely at your code and trying to think of what might be a security h...

Re: How do you explain....

I would use a self driving car only if were open source and stored maps locally when parked so as to avoid any wireless communications while driving. If we get a Google car that is always online, constantly invading your privacy, working off of unknown algorithms, and has about as much security as y...

Re: How do you explain....

I'm 14. Most of my friends used a computer before that, but most kids get their first personal machine around the age of 10 or 11 or so when they start Grade 6 or 7 (I have had them for far longer than that, though I bought by first "actually modern" post Core2 one, still my main Xeon rig,...

Re: How do you explain....

For most people my age, their first computer ran Windows 7 or 10. If they're into computers like most of my friends, they probably built it from random Kijiji parts or if they had a little more to spend whatever Canada Computers had on sale. They put all the parts together, never even had to open th...

2017-04-23 18.45.20.jpg 2017-04-23 18.46.12.jpg Didn't have a DB9 F-F adapter, made my own. Yes, the CTS wires are held together with a hemostat, and yes, I did have to individually go through all the wires on that old chopped up DB-25 cable to find which colors go to the laptop. The laptop is runn...

Re: Some concept screenshots I made a while ago

As I wrote earlier, Kronos 2 uses openbox so that you can run regular Linux apps as well as Kronos apps. Kronos 1 was just one big kronos.py with windows rendered on the page and apps in iframes with no window manager, but that meant that if you started a regular program it had no window decorations...
