I've been away from this group for a couple of months, and see the same
hooey produced by the same perpetrators, just with new victims. Someone
is trying to carry on a conversation with Zick, and is being insulted
for his pains. The usual suspects are talking past each other about
consciousness. Other people are confused about what they mean by truth.
The AI guys still haven't agreed on what they are actually trying to do,
and sometimes get quite testy with other. And so on.
Sadly, the level of wit (both deliberate and unwitting) has declined. Sigh.

Hello all ...
I know this is an odd request, but i'm looking for some old xilinx software
to program some xilinx xc3000 parts. If anybody has such software they are
looking to give away/sell (or know where to find) ... let me know.
Thanks and Regards

We will support old software if you tell us what you need,

Kind of odd question - if you like puzzles then read on.
I have been working with a number of databases in my life, but nothing
come close to this one.
The point is I dont recall the name.
It was probably old, it has triggers but no such thing as autonumbers.
I dont remember whether it has keys.
What I remember is that for triggers, there was a basic like scripting
language, which had one paticular feature - if's and endif's were
defined by the number of spaces in front. E.g.
this is true
this is not true I
this is not true II

A few Excel spreadsheets (v 5.0!).
A bunch of digital photos of the family.

I do have a Zip drive on the Mac, and a SCSI port on the Dell.
I also have an Ethernet cable.

I'm interested in buying an old Mac game that I saw on a toaster Mac
around 1983 that featured a robot or spaceman in a side-scroller type
of environment, where the robot had a jet pack of some sort that
allowed him to maneuver through the hallways of the maze. It was a
very well done game and seemed like a lot of fun.
If anyone has any idea what this game is or has a copy for sale I
would love to buy it. In fact, I'd love to buy any games that can run
on a Mac Classic.

ibidibi411@hotma...KDE: Old wallpaper; looking for *old* base-package...
After being hit by bad case of melancolly, I was wondering if
it possible to download the very old KDE-wallpapers (red-and-black-
berries, green-figs, paper,...) from somewhere -- or alternatively,
download an old version of kde-base. I tried KDE, but they only had
v. 2.2.2 and newer, and there these wallpapers had been cut.
1) Is there some place at KDE -- or other places -- where these files
are still available.
2) Is there any mirrors that still have kde-1.X available?

I just stepped into a network support position to find a Pentium 100
running some long lost version of Red Hat Linux with FreeS/WAN 1.91
running as the VPN endpoint for our connection to our colocation
servers. To say the least I dont want to touch this beast with too
heavy a hand for fear of it breaking before I can document everything
that its doing. However, out of the blue a problem has apeared. While
the rest of the network can see the colo site using this box as a
gateway the box itself cannot conect out. This is a problem as it is
also our DNS cache for the DNS server at the colo site. ...OT
What the hell was I smoking when I did this?
I'm finally trying to get a design into production
that I did two years ago. The proto worked two
years ago. It's still sitting on my desk. The
preproduction unit I made yesterday didn't.
Looking at the schematic, it's pretty clear why
it didn't work.
What's not clear is what I was thinking when I

Shoddy craftsmanship / mechanical design.
Just another ordinary, run of the mill, PC. Golly!! I bet they even ran
faster, than the new ones do now.

I collect and fix old Macs. Usually what happens is I am given an old
Mac that the owner no longer wants or needs. They range from 680x0 Macs
to late PPC ones. People here still think that G3 Macs have value
and want real money for them, but I assume they will decline to the
free level when Leopard comes out.
I take them, wipe the hard drives and reinstall MacOS. What I install
depends upon the processor and the amount of RAM. I then install
freeware/shareware applications to make the computers useful.
Most of them go to new immigrants who have never had a computer before
and need it for sim...WTB: Still looking for an old Mac in Indianapolis
Would like to find something somewhere between Quadra and PowerPC specs to

you are in the area and looking to get rid of anything.
