Did you know that Open Firmware has its own theme song?
Sung to the tune of "The Flintstones"
It's the appropriate technology,
Hierarchical DevInfo tree.
Using Emacs on the keys,
NVRAM if you please.
You can fix the bugs in no time
Bring the kernel up in no time
We'll have an FCode time!
For production slated machines, we were usually running commands such as "copy-clock-tod-to-io-board", nothing too creative.
While I was there, the Sparcstation 20's reached end-of-life and we were allowed to bring one home (I still have it). At home I had gotten ADSL through a reseller that had an odd routing setup - they wanted the MAC address of my desktop so that they could assign an IP to it. I guess I should have gotten a hub that could do NAT, but I gave them my Intel PC MAC, and then went into the SS20 OBP and changed the MAC address to that of my PC. It worked too, both machines got ADSL. Actually what I wound up doing is doing NAT with the SS20, after I swapped out the PC ethernet card with a spare one lying around.
