Secure connection to yamaha.com here:

Could this be the work of the Great China Firewall?

Don't underestimate the influence of Google and Facebook. Since its creation in 2004, Facebook has grown into a worldwide network of over 1,7 million subscribers I think you meant 1.7 billion ? Ref: rfc2818 HTTP Over TLS aims to mathematically prove that: ⋅ the context you are interacting...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

HTTPS is just an extortion racket pushed by certificate authorities. Letsencrypt ended that two years ago. It's a matter of seconds to install, and renews certificates automatically. I don't get what the fuss is all about, to be honest. I run techpubs.jurassic.nl, which comes in both flavors (HTTP ...

Re: Dat compatibility question

Here's what /var/sysgen/master.d/scsi looks like on an IP26 PowerIndigo2 running IRIX 6.2. I can provide the file from IRIX 5.3 as well. There might be an extra field in the description structs but overall it looks very similar to 6.5: *#ident "$Revision: 1.37 $ * * SCSI * *FLAG PREFIX SOFT #DE...

Re: your latest purchase

I just finished low level formatting the first of qty 17 Seagate 15K.7, 450GB FC disks. Bought them for less than 4 bucks a piece. This will give me 16x 450GB FC goodness in my TP9100 array (and a spare) :mrgreen: They come from some big SAN of course so they were formatted 520bytes/sector. I'll see...

Very cool!

It might not even be a switching power supply, but using a transformer. I had a similar experience with a terminal port server (EL16), made shipping quite expensive :(

Re: FireWire/800 to SATA | FC (optic) to SAS/SATA

Re. FireWire: unlike USB, FireWire doesn't need hubs to create a topology of nodes. That's because most FireWire nodes have more than one (often 3) ports. Usually, every disk, host adapter, webcam etc is one node. Every node can then be connected to 3 other nodes, and together they form the FW topol...

Re: Homebrewed 128Mb SGI O2 RAM

1. It could be there are not enough address lines wired, on the mainboard or to the DIMM sockets. 2. At some point if you keep enlarging the RAM, it's going to overlap something else (hardware registers, PCI, ...) and you will crash. That's what happens if you install a third 512MB kit in an IP28 In...

Re: If there's something strange in your FW/400 ...

I'll go digging and report back if I find it. As it turns out, there are no FireWire / SPB2 related patches for IRIX 6.5.30. So it was probably XFS, possibly this one: Bug #957285 - tlbmiss in xfs_bmbt_get_blockcount while running fsr Fixed in the XFS rollup patch for IRIX 6.5.30 (patch 7214 > 7229...

Re: Restoring an Indy, have some questions

I've had good luck buying Sun branded 72Gb SCA drives. They are quiet and run cool. Those older 10k rpm drives would cook an egg. Just look up the specs of the Seagate / Fujitsu / whatever type disk. Look for 'FD bearings'. Not only are they more quiet than the older bearings, they age better too. ...

Re: If there's something strange in your FW/400 ...

This doesn't look like Irix but for future searches, in Irix with firewire you must use 6.5.30 or you will have all kinds of strange behavior with disks. And I think there was stuff they never got into the overlay stream, too. Even at 6.5.30 my system would crash reliably on Sunday morning at 3:00 ...

Correct, it's socketed.

No, it's a different one.
