Re: Putting the C8000 to good use?

It's one thing to drop support as far as updates go, but actually removing access to older builds for older systems is just obscene, especially since it's blocked from being mirrored on archive.org.

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

Yeah, you can get anything that isn't the Ultra 45 (which scalpers have latched onto for being The Fastest SPARC Workstation) for a pretty reasonable price. I really ought to do more with my Blade 2000, but it seems like most of the open-source Solaris ports are business/server-oriented stuff.

Re: The unfortunate reality of being at the mercy of clouds

Precisely. All is well and good until the connection goes down, or the infrastructure has technical difficulties, and then you're completely SOL. And then everybody acts totally shocked and surprised like nobody could possibly have seen this coming.

I came here, read a hamei post, then went and watched the newest Twin Peaks episode and got pretty much the same thing courtesy of Russ Tamblyn. Serendipity!

I'm running Devuan (Debian with the systemd dependencies removed.) It's pretty solid and updates come through pretty regularly.

I've switched to Linux only before but haven't stuck with it. I kind of should... :P The only reason I haven't is that it just seems inefficient and annoying to have Linux as the host and have to boot up a Windows VM just to play games. Win10 was what finally got me to make the switch. It became ab...

Floating-point is for the weak. Fixed-point integer math, now that's where it's at.

Re: Have any one seen any good anime lately?

Now I see what you mean by David Lynch. I can certainly keep watching. Yup. It's funny because I only really noticed the connection when I watched Fire Walk With Me and noticed the similar fixation on power lines, and I'm still not 100% certain the other similarities are deliberate, but there's eno...
