Re: Things that make your blood boil

I beg to differ, sort of. Although I don't consider myself an audiophile by any means, I only buy classical music on cd, with a strong preference for early music which has had a golden age especially since the 1980es up unto the present day. The recording quality on modern recordings is usually fan...

Re: Things that make your blood boil

HD (not 1080 or full-hd) was a gazillion times better than a snowy, ghosty NTSC signal even with the same antenna. Kids these days don't know how good they have it. 8-) Oh when it comes to TV broadcast, I agree HD is a massive improvement. I think that's part of the problem. HD TV was becoming a bi...

Yes, much better. The one in current is a bit buggy, diegel continued to fix it quite considerably and the one in Beta is both faster and more stable.

Re: Things that make your blood boil

The whole high-res audio one annoys me too in general. Especially as the resolution of the audio makes little difference as long as music continues to be brickwalled and dynamically compressed to shit during the mastering process. High-resolution shit is still shit... Another one that annoyed me no ...

Re: How to fix "out of range" on Octane now?

Check the aspect ratio options in the menu on your monitor. My ViewSonic monitor for example has a "1:1" mode that displays the requested resolution with no stretching, hence if I select this and then select a lower resolution, I get the black bars. There should be options to ensure the re...

Re: How to fix "out of range" on Octane now?

I believe single user mode will allow this. User "single" from the PROM to boot into single user mode, then use the command Irinkus mentioned to change the resolution, then reboot. Note, haven't tried this myself, but I'm sure someone will confirm and/or correct anything I've said that's w...

Re: Vintage machine features that spark your interest?

For me, I guess the two main things are that it must have at least some use, and there has to be some nostalgia there as well. Now when I say some use, it doesn't need to be a unique use - everything I do on my Indigo2/Fuel I could probably do easily enough on my main PC - but I like finding modern-...

Re: Fuel R14000 512Mb

actually I'm looking for a door for a good price, if you have one.... Well, as much as I'd like to rip the front door off my own Fuel, I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass. Hope you find one though! :) Anyway, it's a very decent little starter system. As you've seen, the Fuel can be a bit finicky a...

Re: Fuel snaphat replacement

It just pops out, but can be a pain to remove. If you're struggling, buy an IC extractor tool - it will make removing easier. Note that there's also a black Dallas battery too. These are now difficult to find as they're out of production. But, replace the yellow timekeeper first and see what this fi...

Re: Fuel R14000 512Mb

Nice little system, and should be up to 1.5GB of RAM with a bit of fixing. Do you have any photos?

Heh, I'd just describe it as a 0.25% overclocked CPU and leave it at that :)

Re: Things to buy....

well it does say "made in germany" right on the front, what can you expect? Normally things made in Germany are pretty solidly designed and built. Guess you've found an exception! It's the "Made in Britain" sign that should set off the alarm bells: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: non SGI related, tons of blade servers and cisco gear

Those are SFP slots in your last pic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_form-factor_pluggable_transceiver In short, they allow for the switches to be linked together via copper, fibre etc by plugging in the appropriate transceiver. We used to have dozens of Cisco 3750s at work - they're good bits ...
