Alpha Powered stickers

Unread postby ClassicHasClass » Sat Mar 07, 2015 10:14 pm

Anyone have any "Alpha Powered" stickers I can purchase to stick on my 164LX case?

Failing that, does someone have a high-resolution scan of one so I can prep it for Sticker Mule or some such?

I knew you'd know!

I've had experience with making vinyl stickers before; see http://www.floodgap.com/iv/2412 (I do have some more of these). So I think I'll load these into Illustrator and make a production run through Sticker Mule. Due to the minimum order size, I will have some spares. :)

I'll probably offer the excess for sale, but I need to sit down and prep it first.

Finally sat down and executed the artwork. I did an AlphaPowered front badge (approximately 2"x0.78") with rounded corners, and decided to do an 11"x11" red right angle triangle with the Alpha cat as a case decal. I'm waiting for quotes from a couple printing bureaus I forwarded it to.

Meanwhile, the 164LX I bought as a "used kit" has been reassembled in a Nanoxia ATX case with an Antec PSU and I even got it a ZLXp-E3 video card (big freaking sucker with a bracket) so that there may be some hope of X11. Boots NetBSD like a champ. I'm trying to scare up a Tru64 4.0D CD so I can give that a try too.

I *am* looking for the rear ATX shield, though. The disassembled 164LX I bought didn't come with it.

Good luck with that. When I bought my 164LX new, it was nowhere to be found in the box :(

Ugh. It's really been itching my pedant not having that cover... (No, there wasn't any on the case I got my 164 in either (preowned)).

Maybe we could get some 3d-printed :-)

The manual does have the exact measurements, so it should be possible. It's really irking me also, since the case is nice and quiet except for that.

I don't know if there were any graphic software for OSF/1 nee Tru64, but NetBSD seems to like the ZLXp. wscons flies on it: http://www.floodgap.com/iv/2547

my bad, i took "video card" literally and thought of related applications. quick research revealed it's a regular graphics card

I can't tell if it's the NT or the OpenVMS/DUNIX variant though. There's no marking on the card that would say (PBXGA-CA versus -CN).
