One man’s junk is another man’s jewel

So, the OpenBSD-bridge works fine. Only downpoint is that I lost my machine for simple IRC-ing and such because the bridge doesn’t have an IP-number and so the packets don’t have any way to travel back to me.

Anyway, I really didn’t feel like wasting more MHz’s on yet another machine… so I looked around and around and around and, there it was, my pretty Mac LC475! I have used it as an IRC-machine for quite some time, but after a poweroutage it didn’t boot up properly and it also gave me no video-output. So I figured it’s battery must’ve been flat, since that is a reason for a LC475 to give no videosignal. In the end it turned out I had the birghtness and/or contrast turned down… (that alone took me quite some hours)

So, deciding I would give Elsie yet another go, I also decided I finally would make her a PHP-enabled webserver. I didn’t suceed in that up till now, also because compiling on this beauty takes days(or weeks). But… in the end I managed to get it going!



So, now Elsie runs smoothly in my closet aka serverroom, as an IRC-client and a PHP-enabled webserver! She’s on my home-IP, guarded by the Sun Ultra OpenBSD-bridge.

Oh, she runs on NetBSD 1.6 with Apache 2.0.43 and PHP 4.2.3, with 33 MHz and 20MB of RAM ;-)
