Re: which was the best X11(R4)-terminal?

https://woozle.org/neale/src/9wm/9wm.png Found an interesting '90 Window Manager: 9wm . It's interesting (for me) because It provides a simple yet comfortable user interface, without garish decorations like title-bars and icons, and it's click-to-type. 9wm is an X11 window manager inspired by the P...

Re: POWER6 Linux and AIX

I want to point out three things 1) the IBM firmware pre-initializes the PCI in the proper way, according to what the linux kernel is expcted to find 2) the IBM firmware passes the 'device tree' to the kernel, which is what modern kernels need to find 3) PPC64 is more supported than PPC32, especiall...

PCMCIA Cardbus uart 16550A/16950

So, I am looking for a Cardbus uart card, based on 16550A/16950 chip.
I can't find on ebay uart cards without parts which protrude out of the pcmcia slot

I will take a picture of my mate's card to show what I mean.

Re: Inventory/Catalog

The purpose of my inventory is not to know where things are. This should be obvious Not so obvious if you travel a lot and you have parts hosted in different offices and warehouses! For me, "where is it"? Is important, as well as the person I have to contact if I need parts shipped. So wh...

Re: Inventory/Catalog

I use a personal wikipedia (MoinMoin, written in python) to track what I have in the laboratory, so I can access it through a browser. Fields are like: { what is it { hw,sw,fw}? does it work?, which is the last working branch?, how much did it cost?, how much I was paid for it? did they pay me {yes,...

Re: Interesting read: A-EON Amiga X500 review from Ars

The solution is: a couple of macmini-G4 stacked in a tower. Well, here I have four units, two are intel-i2, two are-G4. The whole satisfies all my personal and professional needs. p.s. MacMini-G4 is the best solution even if you want to experiment MorphOS. Check it out: it's supported, and the licen...

Re: SGI Power Supply Tester

OT, @Elf I have already reversed the key-matrix of an Apple Powerbook G3, planning to reuse it for a new keyboard design. In my case it will be implemented by CPLD, and meta-key driven on a simple serial bus (like uart, but with a simple protocol on the top). Just to say: I HATE old style ( like PS/...

Re: your latest purchase

Sounds like a good burn-in test. If it doesn't went up in flames during 105 days of continuous operation, heat might not be a problem for the electronics of this machine Yes, it was a burn-in test :D I was curious, at the end I understood these 712 machines are slow, but affordable.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Impressive result! Also bought a cluster of mac-mini! Two are PPC-G4, two are x86-i2. They are stacked together as tower, with glue layer between them. A lan switch on the top, with five ports 10/100/1000 auto sensing, and they all join the lan through NFS. PPC-nodes are useful and faster when you ...
