While watching Enemy of the State, I was wondering... is it just me, or does the OBS Powerstroke logo look similar to the font used with the line?

This was part of my pandemic project. Although, I ended up on my modified patched up Solaris 9 with because I couldn't deal with how terrible the disk io is in 8.

Got all the essentials built against . That was a little tricky.

Amazing what one hour with a magic eraser and some alcohol can do! eBay purchase that looked pretty rough but it turned out to be worth it...

Some before and after pics.. looks mint now! I have another 450MHz CPU module on the way so it will have 2x 450MHz with 2GB of RAM.

Plugged it in and everything worked great.. I was surprised. Installed Solaris 8 with no issues and then started cleaning it up. Very happy with it!

Spending some time tonight with Solaris 8 putting this Blade 2000 to work.

Built around a dozen GNU tools from source and have learned a lot already just from the last few hours.
