Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

Too bad we couldn't see the actual Happy Mac (is it black and white bitmap, or greyscale)? But, great cat butt pr0n! :) I don't remember actually seeing the Happy Mac on that one. I'll have to dig it out and take a look for you. And Friskie was very proud of her butt. And having it in the middle of...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

I've got a few at home: PowerBook 540c that a previous owner upgraded to a PPC proc (System 7.5 IIRC - watch it boot at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqgZujtQ0T4 ) G3 iBook in Teal (OS 9) G4 Quicksilver (800MHz, 1.5GB RAM, OS 9.2, OS X 10.1, OS X 10.4, Ubuntu 12.04) G5 PowerMac (Quad G5, 16GB RAM,...

I've got a Netra T1, a Blade 1500, and I might end up with a SunFire V245

Re: Solaris software?

All Sun hardware is entitled to run Solaris without the need to purchase a license. It's the updates they charge you for.

Also, the Solaris Studio Compiler is free from Oracle too (formerly Sun Studio).

Re: Recommendations

If you want to secure your installation.... Minimize running services. If you want to really see the ins-and-outs of your SGI machine, run a Nessus scan on there. If you are running it for yourself a Tenable allows home users to download it for free (there are some limitations, such as how many host...

Re: What do you use your SGI for?

People have to use these computers with these well written, optimized and reliable software. With just collecting them, we cannot save them. We have to use them, without it they will become only rusty boxes and fading memories. You have a very good point there, but it's still invisible to the gener...

Re: Current State of Nekoware / otherware

Au contraire....I block all of Africa, Middle East, and Eastern Europe, in addition to China. If I had need I'd white list as needed (as I've done for a couple of Russian sites), but I block based on where the majority of my attacks have come from. In the interests of nekochan peace and harmony I w...

Re: Just got my first SGI machine. Requesting help with IRIX

Just to clarify, when I am talking about a network boot with Linux, I am talking about doing a network install of Irix via a Linux host. It is outlined here: http://techpubs.spinlocksolutions.com/irix/remote-irix-6.5-installation-from-linux.html Ah okay. I thought you meant running Linux on the Oct...

Re: Just got my first SGI machine. Requesting help with IRIX

Back from the dead. I put the Octane on a shelf and let it sit unused for the last several months. Just before that, I got my hands on two new TRAM modules, but they fail the hardware test. Oh well. That's life. Anyway, I have some discs that I think are what I need to get this thing working. I am ...
