Re: Thinking of grabbing a POWER server

Not getting a PowerPC Mac. As I sold the last of my Apple kit to ClassicHasClass I'm sworn off Apple indefinitely. I need something newer than that, that runs cooler, and is of better quality. I always have my SparcStation 20, but hell if I'm running that for my main workstation - Mima is faster tha...

Re: Thinking of grabbing a POWER server

Not necessarily to run FreeBSD, another BSD is also totally acceptable here. I hadn't really thought of SPARC though... does anyone here have firsthand experience with a box that would be usable as a daily driver? I used FreeBSD on a PowerMac G5, which I ditched due to lack of upgradeability, heat o...

Thinking of grabbing a POWER server

So my Core2Duo FreeBSD box burned itself up this morning ( I have horrible luck with x86 hardware ) I posted a thread on a developer site requesting suggestions of alternatives to the x86 garbage running rampant. After wading through accusations of computer abuse, x86 and Windows fanboyism and gener...

Re: 80 pin SCSI drive in Indigo2 - how?

Yeah I'm not tota;;y worried about 10Mbit SCSI, this is a storage server so I don't need speed.

Not if you apply it evenly and correctly. Actually, fellow member thebulbguy recommended it to me ( I used to work with him )

Re: How should IRIX programs be made?

Why the anti-webkit bias? I don't care for Safari myself, but I think its a little unfair to judge a rendering engine. Otherwise, Classic, since you already maintain two firefox forks, could you find some time in your busy schedule to help us fellow IRIX fellows out? (I'm half joking if you don't ca...

Re: How should IRIX programs be made?

GTK 2.x is very slow on IRIX because it assumes certain Xorg extensions and is real slow if it doesn't find them. So this is why Firefox has lag issues? In that case why not port NetSurf, Origyn Web Browser or some other modern browser? Origyn is available under the BSD licence, and while its roote...

Re: How should IRIX programs be made?

Well the Motif toolkit is available for free under the LGPL. Whether or not you should use it is a matter of personal choice. IRIX has MIPSPro, which is no longer sold by SGI, but it is often available secondhand ( not here though, note the orange warning in the for sale sections ) and via other mea...

Re: Any idea on how to access Mega.co.nz from IRIX?

Unfortunately I can't use those in this case. My FreeBSD box finally broke due to overheating last night so I'm scrapping it, I just can't deal with the instability that x86 ``offers" ( It was an old Intel Core2Duo board ). So without that, I'm probably going to have to either: A ) Bypass Mega'...

Re: 80 pin SCSI drive in Indigo2 - how?

Does anyone want to make me a cable then? I'll compensate for time and shipping if they do so. I'd do it myself, but my soldering skills are atrocious and I don't want to risk shorting my I2 out.

I'm able to do international shipping but the U5/10 do indeed not support these.

Re: SGI/Sun Graphics Cards for Sale

I don't know really, the slot looks similar to a GIO or ISA slot. I'm not at home so I can't take a picture now. I was just told that by looking up the P/N
