Walk in and go to your left, you'll find a multi-level lounge area in the center. We'll be at the bottom level... or the second to the bottom level. I'll try and put at sign on the pillar next to the stairs that says "binrev"

psh it can barely run video needs like 512 ram. (i tried openbsd/fvwm2 with 256 and it did the same thing as 128mb loads up but cursor doesn't move or anything but again that might have just been wrong settings for keyboard/mouse i guess) o well it might work idk. w.e. you can use lynx and w.e. download shiz. not really worth anything so not going to ask for anything. also have some other junk (some linux floppies, a 7segment with resistor and wires soldered already so can easly add for microcontroller or w.e. and a sidux live boot cd)

Hey! Ok, yeah this is really fucking loud. Think I have to grease the some of the fans or something. Turns out that card is called a sun pci card and it was used for compatibility with windows. It looks hella awesome but unfortunately I'm finding no rumors that any of the open source oses can host it. So I'm installing solaris on it and probably will install freebsd on the PCi, I'm willing to bet accessing the harddrive will be tricky because apparently solaris only provides bios-level-int13h emulation of harddisks to the PCi. I'll let you know how it goes, probably will take a picture when it's all up and running to. Thanks again, it's been awhile since I've seen the-good-old sun console font. Put a smile on my face when I booted it up.

What are the plans for the next meeting? Since First Friday is on New Year's Day, the 2600 meeting has been pushed back to the 8th. Are we going to do the same, or does everyone still want to meet up on the day after New Year's?

Hey guys. I just wanted to post an apology that I never got your web site up and running on binrevmeetings.com. That is totally my fault for a lack of time. On that note, we are actually shutting down the binrevmeetings.com web site completely anyway. All meeting coordination will be done here and individual meetings can be responsible to host their own sites if they wish (and are encouraged to do so). It just to be to much work and maintenance for our admin team (which was mainly just me until recently).

Meetings will continue to go on and be supported, but this forum will be the place where they are communicated.

I don't know what's going on myself. I'm probably not going to make it this month. Anyone else know what's going on with the January meeting?
