Re: Fair price for Onyx2?

Unless there is a compelling business reason, e.g. required software that only runs on that platform. The fair price for an unsupported 15 yr old computer should be "free" with +/- $25 margin of error, or a 6-pack of beer (which ever is more expensive).

Re: Sick and bloody tired of New Linux.

It's not a Linux thread until somebody has answered somebody else's complaint with "RTFM." Next up, "You Don't Need That!" :roll: Sigh, it's literally on the first paragraph of the wiki article on the matter: While Arch Developers and Trusted Users work hard to produce high qual...

Re: Sick and bloody tired of New Linux.

In the time it took you to write that pointless rant you could have RTFM and learn why using a rolling distro on a serve is stupid idea.

Re: VMS End of life

It's not that there haven't been noticeable impacts, it's that they haven't been ones that are really all that great. It's cool that we've got forums like this, and we can send email across the world many times faster than it takes to mail a letter, but overall were we really that much worse off in...

Re: Mac Pro 2013

Yeah, it's a nice small case, but by the time you plug in expansion units for I/O, external drives, etc. you loose a lot of the small factor and you have cable spaghetti across your desk and power strip minefields underneath. For a rackmount machine you often have to plug together different units, ...

Re: VMS End of life

Axiom does not mean what you want it to mean... But I'm pretty sure pedantic does. Oh snap! It's just that some of us come from countries that are, or were up to some recent point, dictatorships. And we got a chance to experience, first hand, that them dictatorships are far from efficient, as far a...

Re: Mac Pro 2013

Interesting concept. I actually like the external expansion idea; but I think for it to work a lot of price points need to be right: thunderbolt expansion subsystems, and the "processing" cylinders (aka the mac pro proper). Which I think it's not going to happen, but who knows. In any case...

Re: Debian 7/MIPS and MaXX DESKTOP

I tried installing it on a fresh Debian 7 system on amd64, but no joy. For some reason, it only works on systems with the old gdm (scientific linux/centos in my case).

Re: FS/FT: SiCortex SC-072 Workstation

So I have decided to part with my SC-072 ... I will never understand why SGI did not get together with these guys. Put it down to yet another brilliant move by Bozo Ewald, I guess. Corporate America has the imagination of a flea. Yeah, because there was such a pent up demand for these systems... :r...
