On ebay right now:
$65k for a LISA with Twiggy drives and a ProFile 5. NO FileWare, so luckily the ProFile works and LisaOS 1 is installed. Otherwise in great shape.
There are ebay listings, ridiculous ebay listings, and then listings like these where I just admit I'm not a serious collector (and leave it to a serious collector)
you know, precambrian life is weird, but there's really weirdness all around
like these meter tall columns on land that predated the evolution of trees and legs
While we're taking about rsync annoyances: I spent the better part of a night trying to get a measly 900 GB of files from a Linux volume over to my Windows server (which is Windows for reasons beyond my control), and finding out that rsync and mount.cifs no longer play nice. 😡
In the end, I had to rsync everything to a local NTFS volume, then physically move the volume to the Windows server. Bleah.
So... I go to rsync my great apt-mirror. 57GB in all. That works fine because rsync is awesome.
I run the apt-mirror on the mirror machine to check if the result is competent, and...
Aaaand it deleted 57GB of "unneeded" files because I had an error in my mirror.list file. :oP
At least I can just rsync at 1Gbps again. Annoyance.
