Looking for SGI products Propel and Provision

Have never come across these products in the wild. These products were written in sgitcl, or rather according to an old USENET post by one of the engineers who worked on these products, sgitcl was developed to build those products. Then came the web and HTML and all that and any SGI software tooling...

Re: Desktop video capture on O2?

Tried it out with the O2 like so: nedit -geometry 80x25+210+232 & dmrecord -p screen,x=200,y=200,width=768,height=432,timing=ntsc screencast-00.mov which opens up an Nedit window to type in and sets up dmconvert to start recording. Notes: - The Nedit window is 16:9 aspect ratio. - 768x432 is the...

Re: Desktop video capture on O2?

I've never had much success recording video with 'mediarecorder' on my O2's. The CLI tool 'dmrecord' on the other hand has been great. man dmrecord will give you all the info you need to record video from screen to disk with your O2. I also suggest you juggle the RAM in your O2's to have as much of ...

And here it is:

AV1+O2Cam and YouTube

Hey All, I was sorting through my pile of O2 hardware the other day and wondered if unmodified MJPEG-compressed footage from the AV1+O2Cam was directly uploadable to YouTube. Short answer: Yes, it is. Longer answer: - I used dmrecord rather than mediarecorder because it does less 'thinking' after re...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Baked scones for breakfast. Though on 2nd and 3rd thoughts, that's probably not an entirely pointless thing to have done :)

Re: Firefox3 rebuild

I had a looksey at the Firefox Release Notes for 3.5.x and 3.6.x and it seems to me that having an improved js engine and webfonts would be nice. I'm not sure sure if much of the ogg/theora html 5 stuff will be relevant to our slow machines though. Firefox version 4 and up seem a build too far, rega...

I just gave up on Warframe - the Mastery Rank Level 8 test is a parkour thing I cannot seem to pass, no matter what I try. #NotFitEnough2Play

Re: How do you explain....

I just say - "They're like classic cars in as much they remind us of times when there was a certain romance about motoring". Most people relate to the notion of nostalgia and will nod and reply: "Oh wow, so what's special about these machines then?" - opening the door to endless ...
