Nekoware on CDs?

Unread postby JacquesT » Fri Jul 04, 2008 10:43 am

Hi all,

I'm looking for a kind soul who would be willing to burn me the latest Nekoware onto CDs (no DVD for my Octane :cry: ) for a small gratuity + shipping? Anybody? I've set up Nekosync (Thanks Stuart!) but it will take me a long, long while to download everything

Thanks.

Jacques.

This is not a bad idea. Let me see how many CDs it'll take (and I'll have to burn them in a way so that Irix will read them). Stand by.

4.38 Gigabytes, something like 8-10 CDs. That's a whole lot of CDs. I'll do a test burn later.

Yes, indeed!! I think I may be able to set up a work laptop with DVD ROM at home as a ftp server and download to my Octane...Should go reasonably quickly...

Either way, CD or DVD would be a lot quicker than a 512K broadband line!

It would be a lot faster and easier than me burning you a stack of CDs and mailing them across the pond.

Because I have a 10gig limit per month, and the whole nekoware set would cut me in half for a month. Besides, I live in a very small village with an ancient telephone exchange...so my exchange can only provide, at MAX, 768K. I'll get 512Kbit/s if I'm lucky...so it's actually more like 19hours...!

So yes, everything on CD or DVD would make it a lot easier for me...And offering a bit of money for burning the disc(s) and paying postage is, as far as I'm concerned, reasonable. Maybe it's not feasible to post stuff from across the pond, but the UK or EU should be OK.

I don't mind sending it across the pond, if no one else offers. I'll burn a CD to make sure your Octane can read it. Burning an Irix readable CD on Mac OS X is harder than it looks.

Thanks for all the replies guys, much appreciated.

Somebody on this side of the pond is willing to send me the CD set for a small 'wear and tear' fee... :mrgreen:
