Re: [Sydney/AU] HP blade servers with 48Gb to 144Gb RAM per blade, EMC & Clarion SAN

I tossed the link out at work. Sadly our man in Oz is in Melbourne, and none of our Aussies have friends near Sydney. If you're open to donation and get a tax benefit from doing so, a colleague who lived in Fiji suggested donation to non-profit groups like Pacific Islands Chapter of the Internet Soc...

Re: Vintage Computer Festival August 5 and 6

Sorry, I wasn't offering to ship anything. Too many machines to be doing that. I was tempted by the Solbourne too, but like the Integrals I won my saving throw. However I was defeated when they cut the price of the VAXstation 2000 from $40 to $20. And now I can't figure out how to get the damn thing...

Re: Your first SGI encounter

Around 1988 or '89, a friend had dropped out of college and gotten a job at a local software company. They specialized in graphical toolkits for the common (non-PC) windowing systems of the day: X Windows, NeWS, VWS (pre-DECwindows on VMS), and several others. There was a strong realtime component, ...

Re: Vintage Computer Festival August 5 and 6

Out of the 25 DEC, HP and IBM workstations I took to the consignment room, 9 sold (for a small donation) before the end of Sunday. When I went to eliminate the requirement for a $5 donation, I was told a guy was interested in any remainders. (Turns out we work at the same company. In the same buildi...

Re: Vintage Computer Festival August 5 and 6

Yes, a good time was had. There seemed to be several folks from the SeaTac area, and plenty who are familiar with trinitron's relentless hunger to possess all things Symbolics that still exist in the world... Thought of pentium when I saw the X68000. The restored Xerox Alto from Y Combinator was the...

Re: Have any one seen any good anime lately?

VPinecone: Sorry if Lain does'tn click for you.

If people have missed FLCL or Darker Than Black, go check those out.

I try to keep Mushi-shi around. All the episodes I've seen have been standalone stories, so it's good for combating between-series depression.

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

NCD-19b, -16c, etc - 68k-based models, before any MIPS or 88k models) Weren't 68Ks (020? 030? 040?) a bit slow ? Consider how late Apple was selling Macs that ran the same 16MHz 68000 that had to run current MacOS. For the time, it was very useable so long as you didn't need lots of graphics operat...
