- This is a really dense and useful site. I am in the process of acquiring an SGI Indy,
and this site had all sorts of handy stuff regarding the sync-on-green monitor (Sony GDM20E11) that it comes with, and the prospects of
getting it to talk to a PC (you need an 13W3-to-15pin-dsub adapter, and a sync-on-green to h/v sync converter. They give a circuit for one of those. )
Reputable Systems do a complete kit (not of this circuit, AFAIK), if you don't like tinkering. They also have 13W3 to VGA adapters (no sync changes).
- The other place I have read a large chunk of when finding out about Indy's. Excellent site. It's also where I found the people I've ordered my Indy from - they have a bunch left with (fairly) cheap UK shipping as of early September 1999...
From my research: R5000 upgrades are expensive ($800 or so). R4400SC boards are not too bad ($300 ish). XL24 Graphics upgrades are cheap ($100). XZ Graphics don't seem too exciting (Am I missing something?). Haven't seen any IndyVideo boards yet (rare?). The RAM is enough different from plain ole PC RAM to be relatively expensive - £60/16Mb for Kingston RAM from Dabs.
- Burning a RedHat CD mini-HOWTO
- This mini-HOWTO wasn't in the /usr/doc/ folder on my Redhat 5.2 system. I haven't checked the 6.0 one yet... Very useful though - I just did myself a '6.0 + all patches + ssh etc' CD, that works a treat.
- Nokia Data Lead
- Build you own lead for the Nokia 6110 and 702. Wonder why Nokia charge £90 for this thing???
- Wotsit's Format
- An excellent compendium of file formats, and sample code for dealing with them. Besides, you can't argue with a site called wotsit.
People who I know. You don't care about them, I should think. Never mind.
- It comes to something when I don't know the URL for my SO's website. I'll burn in hell for that one (hi sweetie!).
- I work with him, so I suppose I ought to put his snazzy brass-and-mahogany affair here. Maybe one day it'll even be finished.
- Ditto, but without the mahogany and brass. Ask Stuii about Microsoft, go on!
- Rod Jones
- My Dad. I set up some pages so that he can show his paintings. Some day I'll fix it so that he can update it remotely (OK! OK! someday soon).
I nearly put the software section before the people section - got to get some perspective!
- A perl library that can help you deal with Microsoft Structured Storage documents (Word, Excel etc...)
- RTF Stuff
- Apparently very old RTF (Rich Text Format) libarary.
