Re: Free books

Splitting up is fine. If there are any left after a month or so, they'll be trashed.

Free books

I'm trying to clean up my bookshelves and keep things focused. Free except you pay the cost of shipping (we can do media mail to cut on cost and I'm willing to ship internationally if anyone really wants to) or free if you want to come pick them up: Longmont, CO. ⋅ "Panic: Unix System...

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

I'm powering up a SGI every couple of months. I think I used an SGI almost daily from 2001 to 2009. Last time I booted up the Octane I tried to do some C programming. I ended up being pretty frustrated getting a recent version of vim running with my various plugins as well as getting vim to work wit...

Re: O2+ R5K 300MHz 896MB Presenter 1280

Thanks for the pictures! The banding looks about the same. Sometimes I forget how much technology has moved on. The Presenter was somewhere north of $10K, now I complain about the color banding ;)

Re: your latest purchase

Yeah, that exact bulb. I tried some hardware store bulbs with the same base, but they were too dim. Expected life is 50 hours, at least they are cheap.

Re: MuPDF-x11 1.10a PDF/XPS/EPUB/CBZ viewer

Thanks! This is working great on my Octane. Kind of astonished how much faster it is than xpdf. I wonder what the latter is doing to be so sloooow.

http://i.imgur.com/tclfxdh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/hJ7XwJB.jpg I'm hoping to finally tackle SCST. I have a host running Ubuntu 16.04. On the other end, I think I have a couple of QLA2200F adapters laying around to stick in an O2 and an Octane. For the moment I'm thinking just sticking a fiber patch ...

Monitor for DEC vt525

I have a DEC vt525. This takes has a normal VGA connection that spits out 640x480. Scaling this up to a mid-range 1920x1200 LCD looks absolutely awful. I'm hoping to avoid getting a CRT for desk real estate reasons. Does anyone know of a: ⋅  an affordable LCD of moderate size that does 640...

Re: 3130 in Denver

Sad that I missed seeing this earlier. For some reason I thought I had craigslist notifications set up. But, I didn't. So, just a reminder to everyone in the US, set up reminders for your general area! I've acquired my best gear locally.

3130 in Denver

This is not me, but spotted on my local craigslist. This is a little bit before my time and I'm not sure that I'd have the time/resources (e.g. software, tapes, drives) to make these work again. http://denver.craigslist.org/sys/5879747232.html Vintage Twin Silicon Graphics 3130 UNIX workstations - $...

I'm pretty excited to see the comparison. I'd love to have a mostly quiet Indy.

Re: Partially functional diskless workstation

The P1000 is marginally faster than the onboard ethernet, but at the cost of all of your CPU. I bet that jumbo frames would help, but P1000 doesn't support it, AFAIK. To be fair, I don't think you could ever get 100MB over the O2 UMA, let alone over the PCI bus. Observe how the STREAM bandwidth figu...
