Announcing IRIX.pw

Unread postby Raion-Fox » Thu Nov 30, 2017 8:27 pm

For anyone who hasn't checked out my signature I have been busy producing a website that I aim to, eventually, be complementary to Nekochan.

http://irix.pw, or for the forums, http://forums.irix.pw

The main motives for this were quite clear from the beginning:

Offer an alternative/backup in case this site ever is to go offline.

Provide a venue in which software sales is allowed (we fully comply with the DMCA, and will blacklist software if we're contacted by the rightsholders)

Provide discussion for some different platforms such as NEC PC-98.

Provide a focused wiki. The main difference in goals for this wiki are:

Focused entirely on IRIX relevant platforms (no later SGI machines)

Focused on providing modern and comprehensive set of guides

Preserve forum posts and threads on Nekochan

This is NOT intended to replace or supplant Nekochan. Everyone who posts here is welcome at irix.pw and I intend to cross-promote Nekochan, including continued donations and support, the main difference is to instead of pushing the moderation and administration into an area out of their comfort zone, we will provide the niche that everyone needs.

Everyone is welcomed to sign up!

A niche of a niche... It might be hard. I've registered, two things to improve: https on forum, properly configure your domain so that Gmail doesn't flag you as spam.

Working on SSL and I am aware it is being figured out. We use zoho for email so the configuration isn't as easy.

As far as niche goes, it is my intent to grow the SGI community.

Chuck seems to think that HP-PA is a more viable platform. That is adorable.

You might want to put a link to the forums on the mainpage, how else can you expect people stumbling upon irix.pw to find them?

I know. I had an issue with the HTML of the newer page and I haven't gotten around to fixing it, so I rolled the page back to its earlier incarnation.
