I've heard good things about that. Must try it someday.

A countdown.

It's very important.

Also known as 1234567890 in unix time_t format.

Ha, pretty cool. You do nice work; what framework are you using for your personal site - it looks pretty clean.

It isn't my site, it's just something I found.

My personal site is plain HTML (with a site design straight out of 1996) and doesn't contain much more than pictures of my kids.

so after years of screwing around with different things, I finally got Xvnc to work on my solaris box in virginia, so I can now actually use X in a weird fashion on my development box in VA from new york.
It's not great, but at least it's useable, unlike straight X which has been the bane of my existance when trying to develop C programs in VA.
Anyway, so now my question is this.
X, in it's traditional form, sucks. It's got that stupid tictactoe window moving thing, the mouse hover enables windows, I'm sure back in the day that was the shit, but it's annoying as fuck now.
So how do I run a window manager on my Xvnc, and are there any reasonable ones that come with solaris?

I setup a nx server for a remote machine with great results. It works very well on low-bandwidth connections. Not sure if you can get it going on Solaris though.

I take that back, it is available for solaris: http://www.nomachine.com/download.php

I'll try it when I get to work tomorrow.
nx is not vnc?

It's more of a compressed and cached X.

You can chain VNC/RDP/etc off of your linux server if you want. That way you use NX speed with your windows boxen

And this I assume is better than that other old X traffix compression proxy thing that never really worked. I forget its name.

So I installed the server node and client on solaris, and the client on windows.
mostly good, everything seems good on the server end, but when I try to connect, it gets past auth, then says "downloading the session ifnormation" then it times out.
No log on the server that I can find, and nothing useful on the client. Ever see this?

I'm not familiar with solaris (heck, I'm not familiar with any OS), but in linux I had to install a client, server and node. Also, I think I had to open up the SSH port and "maybe" another so I could connect.
Granted, setting it up wasn't the easiest, but performance was great.

Yeah, they're not clear on that 'other port' thing.
I can't find anything trying to connect to anything else, it seems to tunnel everything over an ssh connection, and it manages to log in, but it craps out after that.

What are you using for a GUI? I had some issues with gnome where it wanted to crash a bunch of things when I went to log in. Eventually it was fixed in a later release.

I've been watching a lot of bsg lately to try and catch up.

So I stopped fracking around with nx because I was tired of fighting and getting nowhere and I decided to screw around with trying to get another more usable window manager into my Xvnc/tightvnc combination that I at least had worknig somewhat.

Well after much screwing around, I found the secret is in the ~/.vnc/xstartup file.
So I went solaris window manager hunting.
twm is the original suck.
fvwm2 sucks only slightly less.
afterstep is much nicer, but it's got so many doo-dads any performance gain I got from vnc is lost to trying to update the background and the little miniwindows.

Is there some nice afterstep config program that lets me turn all that shit off?
