Re: What the heck is this and how do I get it to work?

You might want to specify a location, say Country and state/region/provence. Someone might be able to help in person. I used to be keen on VME and helping out people, going on hardware collection road trips together and such. I don't have that much time anymore. That looks like a 32amp plug. My Onyx...

Re: patents

I've agree; software patents are a blight on the landscape and must be purged and expurgated. From endsoftpatents.org: Each software patent blocks software developers from implementing a feature such as a video format, pinch-to-zoom, or nested menus. For 20 years, no developer can implement that fe...

Exactly ! Hey, when do you get to that point in the Oldtimer's cycle when you forget what you forgot ? So you don't need to remember whatever it is you forgot, cuz even the memory of the memory has gone somewhere that you forgot ?


I forgot. ;-)

Export FBX on IRIX with any tool...?

I have Wings3D on Windows8 but I'd rather not use that.
Is there anything on IRIX that will export FBX..? Suppose its too new.
I guess I could go Wavefront OBJ to network share and import and re export but each transformation risks losing something.

Re: Tezro front cover

I could use the kidney bean shaped plastic around the L1, drives and DVD ROM behind the door on one of my Tezros. There are scuff marks all over it like its been through a rock tumbler but the front panel is the only bit missing on the quad, its fine with the door closed but just irks me to know its...

Re: more Borg

FORTRAN is a nice comfortable language :) Wow, that code is really ancient :) For comparison, here's how a modern Fortran program can look like: http://www.liv.ac.uk/HPC/HTMLF90Course/HTMLF90CourseNotesnode62.html Bah, that looks more like Ada. Real FORTRAN looks like: IF IF = 0 THEN THEN = 0; STOP...

Re: pricelist scan

I had a pricelist for PDP parts I posted here a long time ago and I think that they wanted like $30,000 for something like 2k of RAM in 1964 when that would have bought you a posh house.

Re: Motif and MWM

I did some motif (and X) coding ~10 years ago, truth is, it's very difficult; then I migrated to gtk, which is dead simple to use (especially compared to motif). I'm sure the look of motif can be "easily" emulated, but not the coding pain it inflicted to devs; I seriously think Motif was ...
