Nice :D first thing on the todo list for friday!

Cute :D however, is this game german-only? Or is there a language choice somewhere in the game... my german is kinda messy :oops:

Right, there's too much of that crap nowadays :( the big guys at FIFA should introduce a rule where "fakers" get a X week suspension if the video images afterwards show it was a "Schwalbe" as our german neighbours call it :D

But in the meantime, country teams usually have much less of that crap. Well, except perhaps for the Inzaghi siste... ehh I mean brothers :lol:

My own country didn't make it, so I'm kinda choosing a favourite team on a per-game basis. :)

Couldn't agree more :lol: DOS 3.2 here though.

It's even an official copy. In a box. With Microsoft "license". I sent the "Receive a free COBOL programming kit NOW!" postcard that came with it 15 years after purchase, but haven't heard from them since. Cheap bastards. :lol:

Every machine that has a soul needs a suitable name :) I'm still trying to figure out a good one for my HP J5000 - It's got "Hedgehog" assigned to it now, but that's only temporary. Problem is that HPUX shortens hostnames to 8 chars for uname, which makes it quite a bit harder to find a good one. :?

I just uploaded neko_gaim-2.0.0beta3.1 and the corresponding neko_guifications-2.13beta3.1 to incoming. This should take care of the gaim/msn issue we've been seeing; at least on my boxes it works like a charm :) however, it depends on the glib in beta, so perhaps it'd be best to keep it there til glib also moves.

Well, call me stupid, but the only app I ever used designing a website (other than the graphics, naturally) was vim. Create a nice CSS template and the rest works like a charm... who needs a gui anyway? ;)

Not just that. Some ftp apps (gftp, for one) simply won't work with directories it can't list. Probably a lil bug, but at least I had to revert to good ol' commandline ftp to upload stuff there...

I built dangerdeep on linux a while back. 50% of the game wasn't implemented yet, and the other half crashed if you dared to sneeze. Has it improved since then? I could use another game on my Octane... :)

Nice :) from curiousity, does this also unblock the path for php5-mysql5 bindings? I'm running mysql4 for that purpose now.

Never considered OpenVMS? It's not unix related and doesn't feel the slightest bit like any other OS out there... but it's very, very interesting to mess around with. And you can get free hobbyist licenses for it too, so it's 100% legal.

Stuart : gaim 1.5.0 contains a few MSN related bugs that were discovered long after the 2.0 beta series were released. They're not going to be fixed, all development effort is directed at getting a 2.0 stable released.

Therion : The 2.0.0 betas aren't buggy really :) there's just that nasty crash in libgcrypt... but that's not gaim related at all.

I've been promising to get a fresh package up for a long time, but work + flu have been holding me back... my apologies :oops:

Well, it's been half a century since I promised I'd do it, but I finally got to it:

neko_libgcrypt-1.2.4 - finally no more crashing in Jabber/TLS! I've kept some people waiting for this one for a long time (innit stuart ;) ) but I hope it was worth the wait.

I have a build of beta6 ready, but it seems like it's not ready for release yet. Still, beta5's jabber/TLS works fine now. Enjoy!

The main point still stands though. Stable releases do not upgrade versions. If you have a stable ubuntu you'll never see newer versions trickle in - only bugfixes to existing versions. If you want to keep up with the merry-go-round, you have to hop on and use a testing distribution... :)

From a reliable source:

The firefox source expects to be built with aCC on HPUX. Don't even bother with gcc - use the package provided by HP, even though it's rather old.

By the way: pkgsrc for HPUX works nicely. :)

_________________
while (!asleep()) sheep++;
I have pkgsrc on my J5000. Works pretty good, if you can live with not all packages being available.

Two of the better channels to lurk in for that are #pkgsrc and #hpux on freenode. The (only?) pkgsrc maintainer for HPUX is in both.

Ay caramba :D and here I am, stuck with my J5000 / FX6 / 2GB ram (from which 512 is dying).

I want to get me a ZX6000 though, some day... then I can get rid of at least three machines and multiboot HPUX, VMS and Linux.

Nah, not investing in the current boxes anymore. The only one that might score a new part perhaps would be the O2 - it lacks a 400MHz cpu to be complete.

Itanium2 == bandwidth! I wish they had created a workstation with the zx2 chipset, that'd have rocked.

Hmmm... Regardless of how much I do not trust Paypal, I'd prefer it over escrow services every single day. Virtually all online fraud I encountered (not myself, luckily; I tend to accept nothing but international wire transfers) were done with escrow.

They'll only release the money when you send them a code? Bollocks! They'll release the money to the very first person who seems to know one or two facts about you. And don't think you'll ever get your money back. Hell, even Western Union - about the most used escrow service in the world - is one huge fraud factory.

I sure hope that this eBid will prove to have a better track record than that.

Actually, that feature was dropped completely, and is now handled entirely in the IA32 Execution Layer, which is software. And, from experience, it is never, ever used.

Itanium2 is not a bad chip. It's definitely not the best - I'm sure some people here can debate for weeks over this title :D - but it's really not a bad chip. Combined with the chipsets HP provides (ZX2, ZX2000) it has an interesting amount of total I/O and memory bandwidth. It never had that funky take-cover-im-a-RISC feeling you get from MIPS, Sparc, POWER, HPPA, ... though.

I've noticed that Chanserv has been offline for a long long time on the ircd. Known thing or not? And are there any plans for it to return? It's a bit sad, not being able to set a topic (or remove unwanted elements - although this luckily hasn't been necessary so far). :)

Hamei: you could also install firefox for OSX. :P

Now, all kidding aside, I think I've seen similar issues on my linux box, long ago. Can't remember offhand which sites or browsers. There has to be a rather trivial fix, if it had been hard to fix I'd remember...

Tru64 hasn't been ported to anything new, and is heading the IRIX way. Companies pay big bucks just to be able to run those fancy homegrown apps they lost the sourcecode for, ages ago.

But still: alphas are expensive. You can get low spec alphas for relatively cheap if you look for them, but the machines with more than 128MB ram will be pricy. Dunno why exactly. I have an alphaserver 8/400 with 128MB at home, I'd sell it in an instant if anyone offered me even half that price :)

Whoa! That IS a nice find. Thanks :D I hadn't bothered to check there in ages.

By the way: I did get me a C8000 in the meantime... 2 x dualcore PA8900 1.1GHz, 4GB ram, 4 x 72GB scsi ;)

I bet there is some pretty pissed off people at HP, as they have basically screwed themselves out of control of their own destiny... So where will they be in 5-10 years from now? Trying to fab their own Itaniums? Or porting to the x64..?


As far as OpenVMS goes, the work that they did porting from Alpha to Itanium essentially removed most of the hardware dependencies of OpenVMS (no more PALcode, even though it really should have been the other way around with other processors picking up the idea), so provided HP keeps VMS around the switch to AMD64 should be pretty smooth. The hardest part will be IEST or whatever they call the Itanium->AMD64 version of DECmigrate.

Er...

...

:shock:

...

Bwahahahahaha :lol: okay, hold it - are you seriously suggesting that they would consider porting UX and VMS to AMD64?

No, seriously. They won't. The big customers of enterprise platforms need levels of error correction that wintel hardware cannot give, and won't be able to give in a long, long time - if ever at all. If they were to move to wintel, the OSes themselves would have little to no added value anymore.

I do have an account on the deathrow cluster. Haven't been using it a lot lately though... built a website on it just for kicks (and for learning how to build an xhtml/css website using nothing but a basic editor :D ) but that's about it.

Have a SIMH VAX cluster at home now. Maybe I should check into running that HECNet thing too... very nice find :)

Oh absolutely, and expect the Itanium to be pulled in 5 years or so. The volume isn't there and all those "ecc" features you want are appearing on the xenons. The writing is on the wall..(well it's been for some time now) that the x86 has basically won out.


Right. I remember when the old mainframe companies - Amdahl, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Siemens, ... - claimed that the mainframe was dead, and that UNIX would take it all over. They stopped their production lines, and laughed at IBM investing huge piles of cash in new mainframe series.

"Because hey, all those reliability and performance features are appearing on UNIX too. IBM will be killing off its mainframe branch in no time. They're burning money for nothing now."

2010: IBM sells more mainframes than ever, and earns billions on it. It also has a 95+ percent marketshare. Volume doesn't matter if the margin is high enough, and the sales are steady. The xenons (? I guess you mean xeons) are nowhere near the reliability an IA64 offers. Sure, for low-end and less-critical servers, things get moved from IA64/HPUX onto x86/Linux. But the high-end, highly critical market? Hah. :)

x86 has won out, yes. In volume, on the commodity market. But who gives a shit about commodity in the first place? :mrgreen:

Nice box :D we had one of those in the lab at my old job. Ran Linux with Xen, and a shitload of VMs on top of it. 8-way P3 Xeon (700MHz in our case, iirc) with 8GB of ram or so. Painfully loud though. ;)

I still have a v880 that's up for sale if anyone would care to come pick it up or pay for shipping. Would make a killer box if you'd add graphics. If you're deaf. And if you wouldn't mind having a 120kg monster in your computer room. :P

Eh, whoops... that might have been (partially) me. Coincidence though; I just booted the O2 again after a (long! long!) time, and noticed my nekosync was way out of date. Updated it, and your mirror is being used by my nekosync... :) I wasn't aware your mirror was moving. Will keep an eye on this.

Are you sure it's an X1? C8000s 'officially' don't support those (or they're missing from the docs), it's usually either T2 or X3. Also, the X1 only had 128MB, afaik. :)

Nice machine! Welcome to the C8000 club. Quick hint: pkgsrc on HPUX 11.11 doesn't run too bad. :D
