Following these steps, 10 minutes later, I had my data copied to the Fujitsu drive and was ready to become my new root drive on my Origin 300. Pretty cool Silicon Graphics built that in, cloning a Windows system drive is a huge pain natively. Although there is a sweet tool by Arconis if you own a Western Digital on there site, here for free. I used that when I moved off of my RAID 0 stripe of 2 Western Digital Black 500gb drives to the 1TB versions and didn't feel like reinstalling all of my applications including the ones that had limited activations without having to call the company to get them to reset the activations. Maxtor, you've been good from 2004-2008 and from 2011-2012: [caption id="attachment_976" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption="Maxtor ATLAS 15k 36gb drive, finally being retired"][/caption]
env off. This is dangerous though as the server will not shutdown automatically if a fan fails or the server overheats. Having said that, it came to my attention that IRIX does not install a Serial/Terminal client by default. The common
cuis on the IRIX 6.5 Foundation CD 1 disk. Turn on the Subsystems Only in the IRIX Software Manager and scroll down until you see it. Chances are you're not running a base 6.5 install so you'll also need the first disk of your overlays (6.5.30 Overlay CD 1 in my case) in order to install it to resolve the package conflicts. After installing you may receive a "CONNECT FAILURE: NO DEVICES AVAILABLE". Open up

gmemusage). I tested it twice to make sure, but a word to the wise, do not run Quake 2 in a window if you only have 128mb of memory. I'll test it out with 192mb shortly. In case anyone was interested here is an updated list: 320x240 128mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 4.1 / 169.6 seconds 1024mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 14.9 / 46.3 seconds 1024mb - 300mhz R5200SC - 18.8 / 36.7 seconds 640x480 128mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 12.2 / 56.3 seconds 1024mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 12.4fps / 55.4 seconds 1024mb - 300mhz R5200SC - 14.5fps / 47.4 seconds 800x600 128mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 10.2 / 67.3 seconds 1024mb - 180mhz R5000SC - 10.3 / 67.2 seconds 1024mb - 300mhz R5200SC - 11.7 / 58.7 seconds

SDLQuakeand running into x86 assembly, UDP and linking issues I decided to try the "official" IRIX port from SGI. Oddly enough, Quake II runs at 640x480x16 with full textures on my Silicon Graphics O2. Feeling adventurous, I wanted to see if it would play with the x86 Windows 3.20 version. Sure enough, I was able to play with an IRIX hosted game (it would probably work the other way as well) with my Windows 7 workstation. [caption id="attachment_927" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Quake II on my O2"][/caption] On a side note, I got
SDLQuaketo get all the way to the linking stage before giving up on it. For whatever reason using
-lSDLwas not including what looks like X11 or OpenAL libraries. I included both of those libraries and was still getting the errors.
viand start editing on my SGI O2 faster than I could open up
Visual Studio 2010, then browse to the project and start coding on my Phenom II system. It saddens me to know that so many people will frown upon not top of the line specs even if they are only going to use 50% of the power available. Gluttony it seems has taken hold of consumers...
WebBrowsercontrol, which is just Internet Explorer. The Web Service itself is simply:
Stringobject and I pass it into a
JCW3CLOUDPageobject (which would also contain images, although I did not implement image support). Client side (ignoring the WPF UI code):
WebBrowsercontrol to read from. Nothing special, you'd probably want to add handling for specific pages, images and caching, but this was far more than I wanted to play with. Hopefully it'll help someone get started on something cool. It does not handle requests from with the
WebBrowsercontrol, so you would need to override that as well. Otherwise only the initial request would be returned from the "Cloud", but subsequent requests would be made normally. This project would be way too much for myself to handle, but it did bring up some interesting thoughts:
Media Error: Unrecovered data block read errorsGoogling the error (and just intuition), the hard drive I spent all week prepping, installing and getting frustrated on is on it's way out. Luckily I remembered from years back upgrading a drive in my origin Silicon Graphics Octane you can pretty easily clone a root drive. Pulled up this link over at the SGI Depot. Followed the steps, tons of errors followed when copying. Crossing my fingers upon pulling out the original installation drive...
