Re: your latest purchase

Second-hand Openmoko Freerunner phone. I had one in the past but I have converted it to the gta04 phone http://gta04.org (but this one is broken now).

So I got another one to have something to play with.

In this case it's not tiny nor micro. Most of keys have standard sizes and positions. And the CapsLock can have a better use (one can use it as a Control/Ctrl key, for example) ;)

I think so. And the Indy is better than the O2 (I don't have the Indigo2 and my R3k Indigo cannot play mp3 files).

Re: Indy badges?

If I can offer a guess, they used the initial cover until supplies last ( thus gluing the extra badge on the improved units ), then moved to the new design I think so: I have 2 Indys, one is a R5k box and one initially had the R4500 CPU. Both cases are identical. The only difference is that the R4k...

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

But many of the more modern browsers support a "headless" mode. But Surfing the Modern Web With Ancient Browsers isn't an IRIX-only problem. Imagine wrapping a headless browser into a web rendering proxy . It seems that running of remote browser from a modern X11 machine is also a solutio...

Aren't these machines too noisy to be used as terminals?

I have tried to do that but the remote Firefox was exteremely slow (Ubuntu x86 -> SGI O2). What version/setup do you use?

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

Both Links and Dillo are pretty much useless on the modern web due to lack of Javascript (ECMAScript) support, Yes, it's a problem. There is also no CSS support in the Links. But the Firefox 3 is often not much better (try to open the flickr.com in the Firefox 3). and development of both appears to...

Dillo development appears to have either slowed to a crawl or lurched to a halt, no new version in over two years: Is the Dillo better than the Links http://links.twibright.com/index.php ?

How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

I am curious how often people use their SGI workstations. As many of you has more than one computer it probably makes sense to think about the most used one. For example, I use my O2 as my main home computer from 2005 (when I have got it from Ian Mapleson :D ). But I'm spending less and less time wi...

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

I think we should just ignore him.
I tried to read the whole post on the reddit but I wasn't able to finish it. It so boring and it seems to be just a presentation of his personal (and very bizzare) view on things.

I'm not a very active member of this forum but I'm a happy and satisfied one.
