Re: For Swedish members, primarily

I'm not Swedish, but I've been to Sergel's Torg. It's a "sunken" plaza with white triangles on the ground, quite famous.

Re: SGI CRT in Local Craigslist.

I don't recall the 20D11 having a remote? There's white buttons on the front for settings.

Re: tape tar help needed.

The O flag tells tar to expect old style archives (this is true for IRIX and BSD tar, keep in mind that one tar is not always like another, so YMMV), what's more using the verbose flag would (if it worked) put extracted pathnames interspersed with the data you're extracting, not particularily useful...

Re: PS/2 to USB converter

Another angle is that if your "PS/2" keyboard is new enough, it will include the required hardware for USB operation directly. The common "PS/2 to USB adapter" amounts to just a few wires, nothing more fancy, but it won't work if your keyboard is "too old". This. I spe...

Re: Crossover cable help needed.

Also note that any modern (optional for 100baseT and required for 1000baseT adapters) support auto MDI-X and any cable will work. Your linux machine most likely supports this and you won't need to make/buy a special cable.

Re: Remote X with Irix

*unlurks* It's been rather a long time since I did any remote X11, but wouldn't it all go over XDMCP? Sun might have used their own openlook(or whatever it was called) system though. Anyway, XDMCP is the keyword I wanted to highlight here, xdm (and whatever flavour of xdm the terminal/thin client ru...

neko_pgsql-8.3.1 bug/suggestion

My octane started pausing every time I shut it down until I pressed enter and I narrowed it down to the init.d scripts neko_pgsql-8.3.1 installs; even if you're not running the server, it will still try to shut it down using su - $PGUSER -c [...] and the unprivileged user that it also sets up does h...

Re: Should I take the dive?

As others have said, before you go spending a lot of money on a SGI workstation (whatever the model) you really should think again to use it for anything serious. Even highly specced workstations are dog slow by modern standards, and while people here might be using them, it's pretty much all rosy-t...

Re: What piontless thing ar you doing right now?

Other than answering this post?-) Unifying all my tripod heads to Arca-swiss (a grand total of two). I also just finished moving my on-line photo collection to iSCSI rather than NFS because windows (which runs the raw developer) is shit at NFS. The iSCSI target is a file (on a level 5 raid), mounted...
