Gio's machines page
Although I sometimes don't like to tell: Gio is a computer-freak. Being like
that for quite a long time now, a machine park appeared that is worth creating
a page like this one.
These are the machines I own at the Moment:
is my main machine, you can see parts of it on the
is mainly an Amiga
3000 with 50 MHz 68060 processor
72 MB RAM,
AmigaOS 3.1, 2.7 GB harddisk-space, CyberVision 64 Gfx, Ariadne
ethernet, MFC II multiIO, tower-case, Amiga 500 keyboard in wooden case,
CD-ROM, DAT and Philips Brilliance 1710 17" display.
I'm running Geek
Gadgets, a project containing a BSD-kernel as shared library on
AmigaOS and love porting stuff to that system.
I'm doing my home-office-work, some graphics stuff, code-hacking and
lots of configuration-playing-around on that machine.
is derived from the FQHN
pl.attitu.de of the machine you are just using.
I've put this
HP9000/720/50 with HP-UX 10.10, 96 MB RAM, 19" display and
8 GB of harddisk space at the
company I'm working for, to have a
webserver permanently attached to the Internet. pl.attitu.de has a twin named
ally, I'm using for hardware spareparts.
I've always dreamed of a notebook. Now I could get ahold of one:
waschbrett is built by
Clevo, sold as
Media Markt. It's a
Notebook Model "86" with P133, 10.4" SVGA HiColor TFT, 6xCD-ROM, 72MB RAM,
4.3 GB harddrive and
NE2000 PCMCIA-Ethernet running
The information contained
valid for my machine.
Waschbrett got a bit small... so thinking of what may be sexy
the successor is nb-gio2,
a Sony Vaio
PCG Z600NE equipped with PIII 650, 12GB HD, 128MB RAM, 12.1"
XGA TFT, 100BaseTX/V.90 Modem/USB/FireWire onboard running
Windows 98 and Linux
Vaios are cheap at Macgic Computer.
Presently, my bier is
acting as the intranet-server at
bier is a
HP9000/400t with 50 MHz 68030, 16 MB RAM, 4 GB Quantum Atlas II harddisk
and no console nor
display nor keyboard nor mouse :) It's running
NetBSD 1.3 hp300 and has some daemons for in-house use:
innd, smbd, nmbd, httpd, tftpd.
known as whisky) is
bier's sister. The difference:
it has peripherials. Its a
HP9000/400t with 24 MB RAM and 19" display,
keyboard (thanks to De-In)
and mouse (thanks to
ZipperPig). It has a 4 GB Micropolis harddrive and is running NetBSD 1.3.2.
is beautiful but slow. I'll have to put some more RAM inside once.
rambank is a
Digital DECstation 5000/200 with MIPS R3000, 128 MB RAM, 2GB HD, 19" color
display on a PMAG-CA (px) graphics adapter running
frühling is a SUN SPARCstation 10 with
32 MB RAM, 2 GB HD running Solaris 2.8.
mekki is an
SE/HD with 8 MHz 68000, 4 MB of RAMi and a 40 MB
harddrive. Having a hard-to-get ethernet board, it acts as a telnet-terminal
at home, still running MacOS 6.04.
IsDumm is deprecated :) It's become a birthday present for a girl.
The old entry:
Ashame but true: I do own a PC. IsDumm
is a i486DX4/100 running Linux and
NT. I quite hate it. It's only there for kinda support, and I did NOT
buy anything for that machine although it has 36 MB RAM, 3.4 GB harddisk
space, Ethernet, a 1MB VGA and SCSI. I'm using it to do work at home if
I should need it and to compile kernels for our ISDN router.

A MAC IIx with 16 MHz 68030, 8 MB RAM, 210 MB harddrive, MacOS 7.5.1,

A sandwich-machine consisting of two Amiga 500-motherboards in a PC-tower-case
connected by a null-modem haveing one keyboard, one mouse and the ability
to connect two monitors as well as 8 joysticks. This machine is only for
gaming and my brother is using it these days.
These are the machines I've been using before I owned one:
- Started 1983 on 'NCR Decision Mate V' PCs (*shame*) at school
- continued 1985 on 'Apple ][e' (*much cooler*) at school
- switched over 1986 to Sanyo 286 (*ugly*) at school
- 1987 arose the first own computer - my Amiga 500
- modified this cutie until now, see above!
