You're right, mine was busted. But since I never use it I may just remove the thing ...

Freudian sloop - just had the Assistant do a google images for "ace bandage". Now, you'd think that would be a nice clean topic, wouldn't you ?

Squeen, I am very sad to inform you that you'll have to take that photo down, toss your Octane and go buy a nice new Dell wintendo machine. There is no place even in a mom-n-pop for this kind of thing. That Octane consumes too much power and it's too big and too slow. No one can do worthwhile work with old SGI junk so just give it up and move on.

We have this on the highest authority.

Aye! Aye! Sir! :)

In a related note I under went an MRI scan yesterday. The OS running the system was IRIX (Onyx?)!
Just tell me what other OS you'd trust your brain to?

Cheers.

The user "kasbah" reports an error that the old sqlite extension for php5 doesnt work when using PDO.

So i have replace the neko_php5_sqlite with a working one.

In case the last post confused anyone, unixmuseum is letting me know he works in aerospace. :)

MLI = multi-layer insulation or "blankets"
Kapton = kapton tape (in fact HST uses silverized teflon---kapton is the yellow stuff)

Either way, despite the progress of the past year (leaving Performer in May and writing a C base scene graph library from scratch & moving from IR4/IRIX to nVidia Quadro FX/Linux AND completely rewriting the visualization app...*whew*) there's still quite a lot missing from the model and the viewer. The immediate goal was decent frame rates with dynamic environment (cube) mapping, shadow mapping and per pixel lighting all playing nice in the scene. (5 fps...ugh!). Right now the shaders are the bottle neck. Hopefully the newer nV cards will help.

As for model improvements, stay tuned... :)

That said. I apologize for cluttering the nekoware thread with a tangent. What I really was psyced about was how nicely the nekoware media tools (ffmpeg and mplayer) were working for animation creation. I'm gonna try the DVD authoring tools in the near future as well.

Minor quibble on mencoder and (?) ffmpeg is that they seemed to have dropped SGI RGB image format support, so I'm stuck converting the frames to jpeg (which takes the most time).

Again thanks to the nekoware porters for putting those tools at my finger tips (before I even knew I needed them!).

@neko: I just tickles me to death that the version of Firefox I run under IRIX is more recent than all the Red Hat installations. You rock! (It also cracks me up I can't get SuperTux to run under Linux, but IRIX and Mac work just fine.)

Happy holidays!

Neko Irix mplayer works better than Windows Media Player :P

Yes. The mp4 created by ffmpeg preserves colors better than mencoder (avi container) and has the advantage of playing nicely on IRIX, Linux (w/ mplayer) and OS X (w/ Quicktime). Neither ffmpeg nor mencoder created files played using window media player (on OS X, I don't have a Window machine).

A weirdness though on IRIX & Linux mplayer playback of the .mp4 created with ffmpeg using HDTV 1280x720 sized frames. The playback window is stretched. xwininfo report 1536x720. Why? Quicktime plays it back at the proper aspect. Weird.

Another weirdness:
neko_xscreensaver-demo now crashes and complains
screensaver-demo

I've got neko_cairo-1.2.2 installed. Don't know why this started happening. I don't think I messed with software lately.

I think Cairo can only deal with a 24-bit visual (-depth 24 on Xservers line) - 8 (IRIX default) or 32 cause it to crash.
