I have a Sparc 5 workstation and a Sun monitor that I no longer need. Anyone interested?

Hmm, you whana sell it or just get ridd of it?

That implying that a Sparc is nothing I would pay for as it is now.
But I love to play with anything working with 0 and 1. Smile

Sorry, I've only just seen this, but if I was in it for the cash, I would have put in on ebay!

Oh, thanks. I will try to do that when I get back home.

Funny thing is, I have a gmail account as well. Do you get ftp/web space with that?

No, but ther is a linux "driver" that makes so you can mount your gmail space as a hard drive anywher in your filesystem

How ever Google has a Windows only program for sharing pictures.
Though I dont know if you actualy get a space with that. or if you just share it from your hard drive, or even only can mail them to others.
For obvius reasons I have not tested it.

or the excellent fotopic where you get a free 250Mb bit of space for your photos or more for a modest subscription.

If that is the size of it, I would love to relieve you of it. If it's still up for grabs. My g/f might dump me for bringing anohter 'puter into the house, but I think it's worth the risk (or should that be 'worth the risc'?)

Are you sure you're not a shareholder? Very Happy

BTW, I thought I should mention that Sparc machines have a different monitor connection, so you need a special adapter or a suitable Sun screen to use it. Strangely enough, the Sun monitor I have has a standard PC D-Sub connector, but that's on offer as well. If anyone is still interested, do let me know.

Thanks for the tips about photos on the web. Just opened a photobucket account. Will try to upload and link the images when I get home tonite.

Ok. I finally got the images sorted. Smile

The computer looks like this. I have placed the playing card on it for those who are wondering about the size.

The back

The back zoomed to show monitor connector

The monitor Note that the monitor has s a standard 17in PC monitor connection, so if you want it, you will need an adaptor to use it with the Sparc. I have one which you can have, as they are pricey. However, I need to confirm that it isn't faulty! Smile
