Re: your latest purchase

My latest purchase/build is a desk! (the legs are from ikea and the top is a kitchen counter)

The start of the video demos my remote light control rig, I expose a 433MHz controller via SNMP and talk to it with a python/Tk program :-)

Re: How to display a clickable button in our beloved IRIX motif style.

Here you go, no gnu make required. There's code here for regular C files, isn't that superflous? Also note that tabs are required before the shell commands, and this paste will mangle them. #!smake APP_NAME = button C_SRCS = C_OBJS = $(C_SRCS:S/.c/.o/) CXX_SRCS = Main.C CXX_OBJS = $(CXX_SRCS:S/.C/.o...

Re: Bought a mint condition o2.

Congratulations on getting your hands on a real beauty. For that Jurassic Park itch, look up the FSN program; it should be floating around on the web still.
