Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

The O2 is in my bedroom. It's plugged into a shunt relay power bar so that Saturday morning at 9AM (I do love how it supports auto power on) it and the external peripherals turn on and come up.
Then it typically sees IRC and gmail inbox use for most of the weekend.

Re: Onyx Problems, seemingly power related

Is it not possible that the flat dallas chip has caused the system controller to lose its mind? Have you strapped in a new battery yet?

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

I've owned a few MCA machines in the past from IBM's Tower to a very nice Apricot model [Q-something] which ran XENIX with it's rather cool predictive command line. The Apricot QI? I've been noticing a lot with IBM's proprietary disks used in the PS/2 line that while they often did not use the SMD ...

Re: your latest purchase

Looking at the pin designations on either end of the harness for the 25 pin D-sub, that doesn't look like RS-422 unfortunately. :?

Re: your latest purchase

I spent $420CDN on TWO of these.... CGS_7675.JPG CGS_7684.JPG CGS_7687.JPG It's the Pioneer LC-V300 Autochanger for laserdiscs. Yes. Laserdiscs. It holds 72 discs in each cabinet and can play both sides. I was planning on replacing the cluster of milk crates I currently use to hold my collection wit...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Today I cleaned the Minidisc transport in my car stereo because it got a blast of dust and stopped behaving correctly. After that I finally checked after owning it for ten years of my satellite radio actually worked. Turns out that not only is it still "in good standing" but SiriusXM had n...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

HP 9000 D350 with AutoRAID and UPS. ;) Also the 11/23 pooped itself while troubleshooting some card assignment issues. I can verify the chassis is still healthy if I put in my 11/73 boardset but now the 11/23 throws an error about a ROM issue and I can't even seem to jumper out the onboard bootstrap...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Spent the day first admiring the new four camera setup I installed, plus a PTZ camera that's way up on the antenna mast so I can see clean across the valley. CGS_7640.JPG CGS_7641.JPG First problem: When it gets warm outside the PTZ camera starts consuming more power than the DC-DC regulator in the ...

Re: Heads up: Photobucket is nuking its reason to live

It seems we are starting to discover there's also a lot of hosted content that was being used in sites like Amazon or ebay and it's pissing everyone off that they now have to go back and rehost everything.

I'm really sorry so many of my posts used Photobucket for image attachments. I just never expected them to be so suicidial in the end.

Heads up: Photobucket is nuking its reason to live

Just a heads up, as of last night Photobucket updated their Terms of Service and account tiering. It has broken down to under the new terms hotlinking of hosted images is forbidden (and they will break links as they come across them) and the Premium account which enables hotlinking has gone up to ab...
