Ports backplate design

The case I have here has a large rectangular hole for the ports and I'm missing the backplate, the only one I have around doesn't fit the ports of the BP6.

Anyone started on drawing one to laser-cut or something yet?

BP6 case badge?

I haven't touched my BP6 much since last recap, but I'm still thinking about it. My case is quite generic, and the front has yellowed a lot, hopefully I'll find time to have a try at retr0bright, but it also has an empty spot for a 1"x1" badge, maybe others would be interested as well in having a ba...

BP6 featured on french local radio show

I co-host a show on a local radio, about computers stuff. We just recorded for next Sunday, and I did a subject on the BP6 as it's now vintage.

It will air this Sunday at 12:10 CEST on Radio-Mega. Podcast will be available soon after.

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

I'm wondering if the 350W PSU I have in the box is really enough…

Oh, and there's room for a 2.5x2.5mm badge on the case front, I wonder if there are any already out there or we could make a batch maybe?

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

So, I redid the thermal paste on the right one, the left one still has its heatsink glued as I didn't feel confident in trying to remove it. I cleaned the fans, and found enough RAM to get to 512MB. A friend has 3*256 ready for when we meet. I suspect some RAM DIMM to not help with stability, it was...

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Ok all done! Some pads were in the middle of ground planes and were very hard to empty, I ended up heating and gently pushing the new cap leg inside since I couldn't get my pump to get the solder out. I was tempted to replace the few smaller ones left, I probably would have if it wasn't as cumbersom...

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Hmm, while checking with the multimeter I noticed there was 50 ohm on EC10, I hope I didn't create a short. But maybe that's normal because of the surrounding circuit. Anyone can check on theirs ?

Re: BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

This week-end I participate in the MicroAlchimie event (online event of course these days), so I showcased my machines… I have 3 wonderful dual processor machines: BP6, BeBox (dual PowerPC 603e), MacPro G5 dual 2.0GHz .

BP6 + BeOS & Haiku

Hi everyone, I've been a BeOS user for like 10 years, and developer, then moved to Haiku which tries to rewrite it as Free Software. I'm also a Debian user. I was given a BP6 to help me develop software for BeOS faster than on my K6-2 350 looong ago, before I had more powerful machines. I kinda like...

Re: Board software updated

Cool!
Btw, seems the Let'sEncrypt cert is only for bp6.com, not www.bp6.com.
