Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

I just thought of another one I didn't know existed until very recently: an AlphaBook, made by Tadpole. I've seen SPARCbooks and their RS/6000 PPC laptop but never an AlphaBook. I have a PrecisionBook (PA-RISC), which is nearly as hard to find. It's basically a SPARCbook with HP innards; I believe ...

Re: Garbage

Apple's quality control these days is abysmal. That latest "root password" crap just means I'm waiting another release or two before I even think about High Sierra. A buggy filesystem migration and now junior league security fails? Puh-leeze.

Well, it'll be nice to have an EV5 version for my 164LX.

Re: Firefox 3.0.19 Tru64 finally finished !

Grabbed it, but not at home yet, so haven't gotten a chance to try. Since I'm visiting my folks and I'm annoyed with them, I'll seed it at maximum for the next hour or so. :P

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

Heat is the enemy of any system. My Quad G5 runs throttled for this reason.

Re: Talos Secure Workstation

No, not yet. GA for the POWER9 should be around the end of the year and I expect the system shortly after that.

Re: Firefox 3.0.19 Tru64 finally finished !

Damn. I'm going to have to give this a try on my 164LX.

If someone can give me the binary, I can host it on the Gopher server.

Re: Installing on a PA-RISC D350

The D350 is a PA-7200, IIRC, and won't boot a 64-bit version of the OS. The last version to officially support it was 11i v1 and that's probably why it wouldn't boot the later discs.

What was the failure in the installation log?

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Backporting the new VSX acceleration in libpng to VMX/AltiVec. It actually required very few changes, mostly to deal with a couple new VSX intrinsics that AltiVec doesn't have.

Mmmm, vectors.

Re: Video acceleration on Power Macs / QuickTime / FCP

Very interesting. At least you found a solution that seemed acceptable. What were the RT issues with ProRes? Did AIC give you any performance improvements?
