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...

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

NCDs were practically the reference standard in the circles I moved in. The color units from Tektronix were pretty high end when I first touched them in 1991 (or, we only got high-end models - too long ago, flip a coin). Those same basic NCDs (NCD-19b, -16c, etc - 68k-based models, before any MIPS o...

Re: Building stuff on my 9000/350

I'm building gcc 2.4.5 on a simulated Sun-3 right now. Hopefully old enough to build properly on SunOS 4.1.1, but new enough for the versions of other things I'll need to build.

Bringing it closer to the OP, I wonder how my HP 9000/375 will compare to tme running on a modern x86 CPU, speed-wise...

Re: gonna spend the day at Venix(,) beach(es)

Jim S is going to get me an MFM emulator and we'll see if we can get this bad boy imaged. That sounds like a fine idea. I need a few of those - even have a kit for one around here somewhere... That said, I'm not sure what to make of the LK201 with the red LEDs. Is it just shot? I'm certain we just ...

Heh - I have a couple custom-built NS32k-based systems from the University of New Brunswick, Interesting design decisions all around. Lots of heavy gauge sheet steel, but very well-formed and nicely finished.
