Retrochallenge 2012 Winter Warmup will be running in January

Guys 'n' galls,

Just a quick note to tell you that the Retrochallenge 2012 Winter Warmup competition will be running in January 2012. The website is now up and running and already providing interest and amusement. The 'competition' is open to anyone using retro computing kit, it's a great community to be part of and there is always lots of interesting projects going on.

It'd sure be nice to see some SGI kit getting a workout this time around.

More info at our neck of cyberspace: http://www.retrochallenge.net

Regards, Mark.

I came across this kind of late, but it's worth posting on the blog regardless. Thanks!

Hi Nekonoko.

I entered the January 2012 Winter Warmup RetroChallenge with an interest in doing something with retro 3D graphics. My goal is to develop an IRIX based program that uses OpenGL on my Silicon Graphics R10K O2 computer.

If you are interested you can follow my RetroChallenge progress on my blog:

If only Mono was ported to IRIX, programming in C# for the last 5-6 years has made me weary to get back into C/C++.
