Re: Irix 6.6/7?

Below is part of a post from a Slashdot user I saved back in 2002 or 2003. "I haven't been following any IRIX roadmaps lately, but it seems that IRIX 7 will likely never happen. I went to SGI's Developer Forum in '97, when 6.5 was relatively new. Several of the sessions talked about all the gre...

I see this as probably a long term goal of Apple. Welcome to the future! Soon everything will be disposable :D

Re: Missing Silicon Graphics

I deal with Windows boxes as my daily duty and have accepted that I live in a Windows world, Server 2008 along with Windows 7 are actually good OSes, and Microsoft's support (corporate/enterprise) seems to be good. I do feel a little abandoned by Apple and the way they're heading with their software...

Re: A story of web browsing

Hi Fabian,
on my older IRISes I've found Dillo to be an excellent option for basic web browsing.
I have it on one of my Indys with IRIX 6.5.22 and 128MB of RAM, I have it on an Iris Indigo with IRIX 6.5.22 and I want to say 32MB of RAM, and I still get (IMO) acceptable browsing.

Re: Finally posted the next Silicon Classics episode

Excellent video, informative, and well edited. I had a Color Classic in the late 90s/early 2000s. Truthfully, it was more of a pain in the ass rather than a neat collectible, for a lot of the reasons you listed. I think I donated it to the Salvation Army or Goodwill, some place like that. Regardless...

Re: Why didn't Doc Brown just distill the booze?

In BTtF3, Doc and Marty burn out the DeLorean by trying to run it on whiskey. Doc was smart and any redneck can make moonshine. Why not further distill the whiskey into pure (more or less) ethanol and burn that? It would have worked, though the seals on the fuel lines would need replacing in a few ...
