Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I bet Tom Dickey's still got the source, he never deletes anything. You can contact him at http://invisible-island.net/

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I admit I'm no expert (because my physics degree is only a B.Sc.) but I'm pretty sure the consensus is that the ultimate end of our little pocket universe is going to be heat death. :roll:

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

I too have called AW (now known as Autodesk) about an IRIX license for Maya 6.5 Unlimited; they said no, so I'm using the Hax Force license, and it works great. Hey AW! Join here and PM me; I'll give you my name, my home address and my phone number, and you can send the License Cops to come and lock...
