Give it away, give it away, give it away, now...
Looking for that *special* present for a loved one?
Imagine their surprise when they tear open the wrapping paper and find a
complete Du Pont Eurosprint Cromalin system!
Not only do you get an SRA3 laminator and Studio Press - but there's
more. You also get a glow-in-the-dark Studio Frame.
It's in good working order - but taking up too much space.
This stuff is in London EC2 and heading for a skip unless somebody wants
to rescue it.
Thanks for the morning laugh. If I lived in London and had a flatbed
van...no, wait, doesn't it cost eight pounds to drive a flatbed van in
Here's hoping your surplus addresses someone else's deficit.

Is it worth to use 64-bit DB2 instances on a 32-bit kernel, in terms of:
- configuration (go beyond the 256 Mb segment for private mem, 1.75 Gb for
- other ?
I've seen NIS is not supported, downlevel (64 to 32 bit ?) is not supported
The "Should I be using DB2 64-bit?" tech note seems confusing:
It states some restrictions
- You can install 64-bit DB2 UDB Version 8 on 32-bit operating systems only
on AIX, HP-UX and Solaris Operating Environments. ==>You will not be able to
create or run 64-bit instances. You can only create and run 32-bit
instances. <== Really ?
The db2setup (8.2 / Aix) asked for 32-bit or 64-bit instance creation. It
seems db2iupdt -w 64 works fine, and the instance is functionning, but is it
Thanks for your help,
I believe what the technote is trying to say is you can install the
64-bit version of DB2 (i.e. the DB2 binaries) under a 32-bit OS, but
once you install the DB2 binaries, you must create DB2 instances in
order to operate a DB2 database. I believe it is saying that you cannot
create 64-bit instances under a 32-bit OS. If you didn't receive an
error in attempting to do so, I guess you are in uncharted territory,
and risk not being able to get support from IBM. I'm not ...Giving Away Huge Collect of Commodore/Atari Hardware and books

Like Peter Naulls yesterday, I'm trying to get rid of my remaining Risc
PC and the related hardware. I've put them on eBay.
The Acorn-specific items are:
Acorn Risc PC StrongARM 233 MHz + Power-tec SCSI
i-cubed EtherLan600 for Acorn Risc PC/A7000
Acorn Risc PC power supply, backplane and screws
RISC OS Select
STD PS2Mouse for Acorn Risc PC
Acorn MEU + Plextor PlexWriter RW 4220 internal SCSI
Graphic tablet PaintPal Deluxe
The rest is not Acorn-specific but was connected to either a Risc PC or
a Iyonix and therefore may be of interest here as well:
Mitsumi FA402M 3.5" Floppy and 7in1 Media Drive
Sony 3.5" Floppy MPF 920

Since I can't bit shift a float around, I was thinking of a union of the

this going to work, or am I asking for trouble? Presumably there's a
