The Solbourne Solace

Since I'm picking my nose in the Sydney Airport and offending the gate staff, I decided to dust off my Solbourne documentation page. As a bonus, I've included my local updated copy of the Solbourne Shack and a quick OS/MP installation guide. Also included are links to my Solbourne-SunOS 4 software archive on the gopher server.

For those unfamiliar with these machines, they are the forgotten SPARCs and were the first multiprocessor SPARCs, several years before Sun got there. They also shipped a number of workstations, including the super hot (plasma orange) S3000, one of the coolest workstations ever made IMHO.
