Real Sky - Palomar Observatory Sky Survey on Irix?

Has anyone seen, or used, the older Real Sky Palomar Observatory Sky Survey (comes in 9 CD-ROMs) on IRIX? System reqs indicate UNIX platforms as well as OpenVMS. Would be neat to know this works on IRIX first before purchasing an older copy from fleabay.

Re: Rising NeXTStation prices

Prices are aimed at anyone who will buy.. including hobbyists. I don't have a BeBox yet.. what are my choices if I did want one? Only today's high prices. Supply and Demand as jan-jaap said. These are no longer just old PCs nobody wants. They are collectable items of value never to be recreated agai...

Re: GemRB

Lynx.. hope your year has been going well?
Any possibility for helping us with the crashes we are encountering? GemRB is unusable except to showcase moving a character around.
Thank you

Re: Inventory/Catalog

The File-system directory concept approach could be changed to using an LDAP server (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)... OpenLDAP runs on lots of platforms (and it has portable versions to run without an actual installation on windows, linux,etc.. ) and there is Apache Directory Studio for a g...

Onyx2 IR3 120v power possible?

I just realized that most Onyx2's need 220v.. However an older manual I found listed that it can run on 120v if using 1 node board and 1 RM. Is this true? I could run an Onyx2 with 1 node board (dual cpu) and and a GE16 with 1 RM10 and DG5-8 on 120v (regular US household power)? Just want to confirm...

Re: Web browsing from IRIX using headless chrome?

I have had good success with WRP (wrp11-qt.py).. however running on an Ubuntu system (have it running today on 14.04 LTS). Any other Linux flavor didnt seem to do so well when I did some very quick tests. I have complex, large sized, webpages loading quickly on old Mac Classics, SUN Sparcstations, N...

Re: Anyone see this beaut on eBay

The price was less than 4k.. I do agree that 4k is way too much. The seller accepted my offer, I did not do the buy-it-now price. However it was still more than the price of a decent Tezro (which are not too easy to find these days too). I have been looking for a cosmetically good SGI deskside for q...

Re: Anyone see this beaut on eBay

I picked it up.. been looking for an SGI deskside for quite some time and a Crimson is just icing on the cake. Now I just need to figure out how to explain it to the wife and pay off the credit card.

Re: your latest purchase

Tell us more about your vanity plates and the machines they are attached to. Just some old cars I have around. There are more on the other side behind them. As time goes on, I seem to have less and less cars.. but more and more UNIX workstations and servers. They are not really vanity plates.. just...

Re: your latest purchase

Picked up a DEC Alpha 2100A over the weekend. I have a rack-mounted version of this already but never had the better looking pedestal version.
It was actively running in a datacenter until a couple months back, so no dust, mice, or moisture, etc.. Its pristine.
