    Just make sure it's a Mac card, or flashed with Mac firmware. Regular PC PCI accelerators won't work. You should be able to find an inexpensive Mac Rage 128 or early Radeon without too much trouble.

    The POWER6 server that runs Floodgap I spent (personally) a little over $10,000 in 2010. I would have spent more on a POWER7, and was willing to, but IBM wouldn't sell me one (I don't need their...

    I've run my own mail server since 1998 and it's only gotten harder every year. The chief problem is sending: whole IP blocks get banned by providers with no recourse and spammers don't quit. As a...

    The chief reason I run Fedora isn't because loyalty or any particular preference but simply because I'm one of those ppc64le Raptor users, and F28 was the only out-of-the-box distro that worked for...

    I do upgrades in place from Fedora version to Fedora version, but the changes are usually less because it's certainly got more churn than an LTS distro.

    Once this whole coronavirus mess settles down, imma have to take a look (I used to make the US 395 run regularly). Where is it located in Carson City?

    Yeah, but the flimsiness is only by comparison. I don't think the pizzaboxen HPs are that crufty and they're better built than some of the other systems of that era, though I do agree the 735's case...

    Then it's possible they had it then, since this would have been around 1993. Rancho Palos Verdes is where most of their western territorial administrative offices are. The SA is pretty hierarchical;...
