Re: Was the age of Unix workstations really golden?

Everytime I see words like workstation and multiuser used in same context, it always feels to me like a pretty stupid idea. When I think about a workstation I think of high performance and quality system designed for real work and it sits on the desk of someone serving just that single person. The w...

Re: Dillo3

Anyone tried to compile current version of NetSurf for Irix and see how it works now?

At least the RISC OS version is pretty usable with very modest hardware but I have no idea how the current GTK version fares up to that.

Re: Elysium

To me District 9 was big disappointment when I watched it. I do not like the style movie was filmed and it was very boring until the very end, where the action saved some of the film. The effects were actually not bad and there would have been much more potential if all those resources would have be...

Re: Where hakimoto works...

I have been very much left behind on this whole web thingy.

NetSurf supports HTML 4.01 and CSS 2.1, so that explains it. Otherwise pretty nice lightweight browser that works on many platforms, including RISC OS.

Re: ...How To Clean Up CAD Blue-Prints To Print Out?

Actually it is a separate little program just for making gears available from the website of ProCAD+ author. Online manual is here: http://www.dsnell.zynet.co.uk/PS/ProSpur.html You can use other pressure angles than 14.5 or 20 by editing the parameter file of program and then unticking both radio b...

Very painful it is also and that sizzling sound is very scary.

Happened to me once but at least now I know to cover my ears when doing gaswelding in ankward positions.

Re: Where hakimoto works...

Only negative point is that if you have no javascript then what you see is little limited. First tried with NetSurf on RISC OS and all I got was the contact information part of frontpage. Tried again with Firefox on Windows system out of curiosity and it was much better there. Clean informative webs...

Re: ...How To Clean Up CAD Blue-Prints To Print Out?

There is little utility that makes gear symbols if more realism is needed, but I was just interested how it would be done manually with own hands. Shape of gear seems pretty complicated, so better for everyone if I just stick to drawing decorations. Does Pro/E do things like that automatically, or i...

Re: ...How To Clean Up CAD Blue-Prints To Print Out?

Easy and 100% accurate Looks good but ... errrrmm ... accurate ? I'm wondering what the heck they are doing ? With accurate I mean only the placement and amount of tooth, so no need to fill the gaps later manually. (Teeths itself around the circle do not withstand closer inspection as they are loan...

Re: ...How To Clean Up CAD Blue-Prints To Print Out?

Mathematics is one of the rare things I have found useful after school. Specially geometry/trigonometry have some uses in real life. I was thinking of a way to make accurate teething around circle without cheating like I have done before. Luckily in ProCAD+ you only have to know the number of teeth ...

Re: Pacific Rim

I just watched this at local theater and it was pretty good with some nice effects and good music. Always good to see a movie that is not spoiled with horrible rap/hiphop music that seems to be so popular nowdays. As an added bonus this time nobody was talking through the whole movie like the last t...

Re: Books for that lone island...

Yes, it is a free world and nobody is claiming otherwise. No need to get upset... Holy Bible itself is not necessarily bad as some people may find some comfort in there. Only when people read and take it too seriously there is danger it can wrongly be used for bad things. Every book that is not to b...

Holy Bible is the last book I would take anywhere with me.

When finally get away from useless things like religion, then why take it with you then?

Anyone waiting for it? Do you like the new look?


Doubles as an art-deco office trash can?

To me it looks like a potty :)


I grabbed this picture of a wine cooler from the local Apple userforum and it looks strikingly similar to that new Mac Pro.
