I bet Tom Dickey's still got the source, he never deletes anything. You can contact him at http://invisible-island.net/

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I admit I'm no expert (because my physics degree is only a B.Sc.) but I'm pretty sure the consensus is that the ultimate end of our little pocket universe is going to be heat death. :roll:

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

I too have called AW (now known as Autodesk) about an IRIX license for Maya 6.5 Unlimited; they said no, so I'm using the Hax Force license, and it works great. Hey AW! Join here and PM me; I'll give you my name, my home address and my phone number, and you can send the License Cops to come and lock...

Not to mention that time stops at the speed of light and the apparent size of the Universe shrinks to zero... :shock:

Re: your latest purchase

A venerable VIC 20 !! Tis a thing of beauty! :D I never bought a personal computer back in those days because we had a ton of CP/M machines running off 8-inch floppies in six-foot-tall 19-inch racks, and I thought "how can tiny little things like that be a real computer?" :?: Yet more irr...

Re: Archiver 0.1 - IRIX/IMD GUI for tar.

Sweet, thanks! Up to this point I've always used TkZip as my default gui zipped archive creator/extractor, but the source repository at woodsway.com has gone off line. If anybody wants it it looks to be available here (works great on IRIX): https://fossies.org/linux/misc/old/TkZip-1.1.7.tar.gz

Re: Has anybody tried building FFmpeg recently?

You can change your default shell in your ~/.profile, that's how I change mine to bash on my SGIs and Suns. I have built ffmpeg on my Slackware box many times (Slack didn't used to include it, I think it does now as part of the electricsheep package, not too sure about that). praetor242 were you abl...

Re: IRIX Source code

You guys are awesome! I've submitted exactly one patch to the Linux kernel, to the hwmon code to fix a call to a deprecated function. Extremely trivial patch that worked perfectly, it removed the call to the deprecated function and replaced it with a call to the function that replaced the deprecated...
