Nicely done fu!

BTW - after everyone has had a a day or two to catch up with the wiki-related posts here in the O2 Hardware Aggregator, I'll be splitting them off to join the New Nekochan Wiki thread. That will keep the O2 Hardware Aggregator on topic, and for long-term storage/posterity they'll be a better fit in the neko-wiki topic.

roger rockers, i'll keep adding then

just wanted to know if its (currently rough) form/layout is good for everyone.

minor update, magellan offered help. he'll be adding the fuel aggregator in a similar fashion. since all agree on form/structure, lets take further discussion on the wiki-boogie thread

(rec, clean/split whenever you find appropriate, chiming just to acknowledge. please delete this post too)

Hello,

I'm currently working with Fu on the hardware aggregators wikification.

He created a page http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/index.php/DVD-ROM_Drives that list the O2 compatible devices. How do I create the same but for the Fuel?

I'm not a wiki expert but willing to help.

Thank you.

Magellan

I suggest calling it DVD-ROM Drives (Fuel Compatible) to make it obvious which platform we are talking about. I'll go ahead and add "(O2 Compatible)" to the O2 pages.

As long as we're dealing with SGI hardware of roughly the same era <O2, Octane, O2k, Onyx2, IP35, attributing specific SCSI devices to individual hardware platforms might be a little too fine-grained <SCSI devices such as hard drives, DVDs, CD-ROMs, CDRWs, but *not* PCI SCSI controllers> . I've worked my way through pretty much all of those systems, and can't recall a SCSI device that worked on one but not the others. I might have just been lucky, but if not, it'd save quite a bit of wiki creation time.

If a specific device appears in only one or two of the forum aggregators, it would be simple enough to add a note mentioning "not yet tested on platform X".

Ditto for third-party monitors, and a possibly a few other categories as well.

I agree with what you said about SCSI devices, but I still lean towards keeping it separated by platform. I think that the idea is that a device should be on the list only if it is confirmed to work on a particular machine. It reduces the (admittedly, for SCSI, unlikely) possibility of time wasted trying to get an incompatible device working after reading an ambiguous compatibility report.

We could always put a note in the individual articles that SCSI devices that are confirmed to work on one type of system are likely to work on contemporary systems.

In any case, the important thing is to get the content up on the wiki, so if folks don't agree with my suggestion, no problem -- wikify as you see fit! :D

Hi,

I must say I like recondas idea better (no offense to josehill).

I'd prefer to have a wiki category "Compatible Hardware" and in it, a page per type of device (Firewire cards, Network cards, …) and for each device on the page we can just flag with which system it work…

My 2cents.

Magellan

The wiki blasts through 500 articles recently. Hurrah. \o/
Thanks to all those contributors.

Could someone with admin rights add some citation templates to our wiki? They're really helpful for adding references.
Here's how to do it:

Citation seems to be a good all-rounder, more are here.
