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

Sadly none. No time for anything fun. Work, work, work.

Re: No more MATLAB for IRIX?

These days your best bet for IRIX would be to use and/or update the nekoware Octave package.

Cheers.

Re: Cool (open source) software you would like to see ported

Just got the power resolved in the lab and the Onyx4 back on line!
I need to get my nekoware packages updated and then I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

Re: Thoughts on the new macbook?

Whee! I haven't had a dose of hamei rants in a while. Glad I checked this thread. For me, there seems to be a potential divergence in computing right now. The consumer market and the scientific market. For the average consumer, sleek design (form-factor) and ease of use (OS) is king since the comput...

Re: bali

We bought an Onyx4 with ATI crap graphics. It was a mess. We later retrofitted the machine to IR4---a huge imporvement.

Re: Steve Jobs dead.

I think in almost all the "1st"'s there was a true (forgotten) processor. He was just quick to adopt, (expertly) refine and market. Almost never did Apple play "catch-up". It was a real talent.

I think T.S.Elliot once said, "Good poets borrow, great poets steal."

Re: Dennis Ritchie has passed away

Great programmer. Clear thinker. In all his public writing, seemed a humble, down-to-earth fellow. Definitely an inspiration and an example of the of a single person having a huge impact on society.

I love C.
I love Unix.

So long, Dennie Ritchie and thanks.

Re: Steve Jobs dead.

I guess I would add to the list:
- 1st touch screen on a phone
- mag-safe plug on a laptop (cause I love it!)

I'm sure the NeXt cube had some other firsts I don't know about.

Anyway, what an innovator!

Re: Steve Jobs dead.

I agree. Computer-driven devices have lost the "fringe" niche they once owned. They are like a toaster or VCR. Easy to use. Good an doing certain tasks, but less programmable without specialized tools---not really for "computing" in the sense of number crunching for most folks. F...
