Thanks to Dom, I've become the proud owner^H^H^H custodian
of three new machines to populate my Unix rack.
The HP B132L fired up straight away, although X Windows might be a bit of a challenge (or rather finding a monitor that can do 1024x1280@75Hz natively).
The SparcStation 10 and LX will have to wait until I can cobble together another couple of 13W3 video leads (There was a nice 13W3 to 13W3 one in the pile of cables sitting on top which I could chop in half and put DB15's on the end - I'll see how eager I get...)
Retrobrite might be required - although they have been in storage for over 10 years, it looks like they absorbed a fair bit of UV back in the day:
Note the Sun three-button mouse - the chaps here at work were in awe of an early nineties mouse being optical - until I showed them the metal mouse pad that is required to reflect off.
Time to add a 1U bar across the front of my rack with a swathe of DB9 serial connections so I can plug a console in at will - only some of them play nicely with the KVM switch so others have to run headless. Currently, from bottom up, housing a Dec-Alpha DS-20 running HP True64, a SCSI disk array shelf, Dec-Alpha DS-10 running CentOS (These three from the period of time when Compaq bought Digital, but before HP bought Compaq... still using DEC colours), a couple of no-name rackmount PCs runing UBuntu, a SunNetra box which I have failed to make do anything except spin a few fans, a Cisco switch, a Compaq KVM/Keyboard/trackball combo tray, a nice BenQ LCD that only just fits (on a tilting retractable arm) and perched on top because it can't fit in a 19" gap is the old SGI Indigo² R10000 Impact (Purple of course!). Just enough room between the Netra and the KVM to fit the Sparcstation 10 and the HP B132L.
/edit - home now :
Raspberry Pi has been relegated to the workbench - Oh, and there's an Apple Sunflower sitting on top at the back too, which technically is running Unix, but isn't really old enough to be of Vintage interest (although it is probably the coolest looking Apple to date).
I daren't power them all up at once!
