  1. Just did the upgrade. Oddly, eth0 no longer works. Managed to get connected via wifi, ssh'd in - eth0 shows with the correct mac address. However dhclient eth0 returns after some time with no address. If I manually set the IP using ifconfig and appropriate netmask and router settings - it can't ping anything and instantly knocks down the wifi connection. Would like eth0 to work again... Interestingly, if I turn predictable names on, reboot, then off, reboot - the eth0 interface will come up... but it's a headache to do that on every boot. Thoughts? Thank you, Arthur...
  2. Delightful conversation with Chris the other night who helped me sort out the options on an IDE card order. At this rate, I may be looking at a PEB splitter and a second box!

    Love to have this as a PEB card as well... :)
  4. That is a cute monitor... I've had my finger hovering over the bid button on that Triple Tech card. Which I absolutely do not need. Right now; In the console F18 MiniMem In the PEB Firehose 32K Memory P-Gram+ WHT SCSI card w Syquest 200MB cart drive in external box WDS1. SID Player card RS-232 card w HDX mod installed - modem, HDX1. TIPI card with Raspberrry PI mounted. Myarc DDCC w 80 track mod - DSDD/2880 sectors. DSK1 and 2 are Lotharek SD card floppy emulators, DSK3. (DSSD) shares the external box with the 1/2 height Syquest. Full house ... and I use it every day... Thanks to @jedimatt42 I now have more or less unlimited high speed database storage. As a kid, if I had such a system - there would be a LOT more TI software in the world today. Cheers, Arthur...
  5. Worthy of note - some programs use this memory. I run a very large TI-BASE (Incebot) database, and if you happen to have a Mini Mem - the DB, which normally starts with 1569K of working space for tables and such will start with 4096K of working memory. This allows for more open databases and larger program files as the software has a DB language which allows for all forms of entertaining data manipulation, string manipulation, compute operations and so forth. So this is a cart I keep in the TI at all times. Without it, there is no way to edit my DB procedures. Have had this machine going for 35 years.
  6. Tried ethernet to the LAN; .3 MS. Consistent. So something might be up with wifi connectivity - since no matter which wifi AP I hit, the variable performance issue mentioned above is a problem. So, question is... can I disable wifi and just use this from ethernet with no ill effect?
  7. Seems like network is the issue. The pi is seeing ping times of 1.5 ms to 4000ms and it seems bursty. It'll go fast (2 pings), then several pings at 3 to 4K MS, then another 2 pings at less than 10ms. Never seen anything like this. Seems to be this way no matter which wireless net I connect it to. Presently connected to localhost on the TI console via. telnet to get around the choppy connection speed. Anyone else seen this? Should I apt-get update, and then upgrade? See if I can trade some old bugs for new? Is there a service I can stop and start for tipi?
  8. Hi Team, Python seems to be consuming 30% of the CPU - the TI is switched off - as is the PEB. Logged into to the PI to map some drives and it's really sluggish - hard to even edit a file. Feels like this is new as I don't recall previous ssh sessions on the PI being like this. Has there been a change, or perhaps a process I can kill?
  9. Had one of those for centuries, how'd you think I wound up here??? LOL
  10. Take my money!!! How, when - now, or wait for production run. Pretty neat! To quote JR Hadden - why have one when you can have two at twice the price!
  11. @jedimatt42 - works like a champ. No problem sorting large files! Agreed - I don't think the software does the math beyond looking at space available.
  12. That could work... in the spirit of fooling ancient software, it might make sense to decrement the free blocks by the size of whatever files happen to be in the directory. Or am I scope creeping... Largest floppy I have ever gotten to work is 2880 sectors, DSDD 80 track. On my 200MB SCSI drive - it reports a total size of 781376, 741024 free and 40352 used.
  13. Hi Team, wondering if there is a way to hack the code such that it reports 2280 or 5760 sectors free instead of the default 1440? Cheers, Arthur...
  14. Is there any place I can hack a different value into the volume size reported back to the TI? It's currently fixed at 1440 - but needs to be larger for programs that create bigger than diskette sized files. The ability for a disk mapping to be 2880 or even 5760 would likely resolve some large file issues I am running into. Seems that so long as I run DB sizes that are smaller than 1440 all is OK - but when I merge files that push above that number weird things happen. Thank you, Arthur...
