Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

HTTPS also comes in handy in places where you are connected over an open wireless network. While, of course, the best option here is a secure wireless network, it is far too frequent for WiFi networks to be left open in public places just because giving everyone a password is too much of a hassle. W...

Re: your latest purchase

I mean, I don't think it's right to send a different board revision, but if it's still a 300mhz board with the same specs, I wouldn't be too worried. Chances are he has a couple of 300mhz boards in stock, and has a photo of one of them that he uses whenever he sells one. The differences you have des...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

I've heard the same with regards to an Onyx rack that nobody wanted to move, though I do like the idea of a RUNNING system being left in a wall somewhere.

Re: Announcing The IRIX Network

You know what? We said we wanted *evolution*, and the internet v1.0 was a great big hit. We have all worked to create the internet v1.1 and believed it was a good step ahead for the human race, and now we are supposed to thanks a few assholes for bringing this dream to a bitter end. The internet v2...

sgistuff.net is broken, so here's my workaround.

As anyone who has checked sgistuff.net in the past few days has found out, the site doesn't work anymore. Rather than loading the page, your browser will try to download it instead. This is because the site sends the wrong content-type in its response, sending application/x-httpd-php instead of text...

Re: Announcing IRIX.pw

I understand that there is a legal reality to allowing software sales, one which Nekochan has been hit by in the past, and I think Raion-Fox is very brave (perhaps too brave) to do so. If I had a forum like this (I don't plan to open one, but if I did), I would not allow software sales. I just think...

Re: Announcing IRIX.pw

Okay, I think both sites are awesome, and I have an account on both, but is it not a little premature to go from "This is NOT intended to replace or supplant Nekochan" to "The IRIX Network aims to be the premiere SGI community"? Like, HTTPS and software sales are cool things that...

Re: Homebrewed 128Mb SGI O2 RAM

Very interesting. IIRC, my "good O2" has 512MB across four sticks. It used to have more, then some died, so I took the other four out. Would be nice to complete it with 1GB.

It's real! Real, actual hardware, and (possibly, depending on if I'm bad at stuff) even working real, actual hardware. Did I mention board photos? I got to take a look at the D1-PT-02 boards today (I was away when they arrived on Friday), this one is a prototype of the ethernet card portion of the d...

Re: Talos Secure Workstation

I might consider getting some 6100s to test with, since they are largely untested under Libreboot, but 6200s run well and support virtualization without microcode updates, something preferred by Libreboot. That said, since Meltdown/Spectre mean microcode updates may be necessary anyway, the 6300s ma...
