Re: O2 and crystal eye glasses

yes, the presenter board has a minidin-3 stereo connector. But the stereo sync signal may be available from another place within the IP32 itself.

Re: dillo errors

This may be a naive suggestion, but couldn't you use a C99 cpp pass using -P and run CC on that?

Re: 1600SW + MLA - picture noise - SOLVED

from kubatyszko's remarks, and the Sanyo datasheets, these are surface-mount electrolytic caps. they need SMD techniques.

Re: dillo errors

man cc: * The gcc compiler allows variadic macros; the MIPSpro 7.4 compilers support these macros in c99 mode. If you have code that uses ellipses (...) as part of a macro definition and you are not compiling with c99, you will need to rewrite the macro. Two possible approaches are to replace the ma...

Re: Unicode-encoded source code files and MIPSpro compilers

I'm not aware that it handles them at all, that is, the symbols are used in whatever encoding they appear in. This would only work by accident considering all the composed/decomposed, surrogates, extended planes issues. All separate from the programming language specification.

C99 allows unicode characters in both string literals and identifiers.

Re: 1600SW + MLA - picture noise - SOLVED

Most printed circuits manufactured after 2000 use SnAgCu solder alloys. Whatever the melting point, it can be difficult to reflow joints attached to ground planes.

I recently discovered a tool that simply cuts off chip capacitors, it might work on the smaller OSCONs as well.

Re: Any AIX or IBM mainframe programmers here?

Back when people actually cared about the SGI/MIPS platform, there was a "gentle" introduction called "See MIPS Run". You should be able to find it online without much difficulty.

Re: Installing IRIX 5.3 / Indy / Exception & Panic

although that doesn't always mean a thing, I also installed stock IRIX 5.3 on my Indigo² 200MHz R4400 1MB, although it only supports 100 MHz R4000SC or 150 MHz R4400SC (according to sgistuff ) and the 250MHz 2MB CPU is not supported by IRIX 5.3, but good old 4.0.5H runs fine on it :D It is a differ...

Re: I Knew It!: Simply Too Good To Be True...

I don't think this "concept" is realistically possible... keep in mind that there is no standard width for 35mm cameras, so the distance of the shutter window from the 135 canister is not a standard either. There is no way for the camera to command the electronics to begin and end light ga...

Digital backs for 6x6 and 645 cameras have existed since the early 2000s, brands were Leaf, Imacon, and Kodak DCS Pro. No "flexible sensor technology" of course.

I think Electric Image should say EI Universe, as that was the only version that was ported to Unix.

Re: Looking for the list of Solaris proprietary software

I remember that Nendo from Nichimen (a polygon modeler for games and simulations) was released on Solaris. There was also a period when some companies were making digital video capture and editing products for Sparc, and Evans and Sutherland sold 3D graphics hardware for them. Also don't forget Hype...
