Found this great Novell sticker Posted on September 14, 2018 by neozeed Captain Netware, we like to go online Remember when the Novell Unix client was everywhere?Â Remember when IPX/SPX was a thing?
Remember when IPX/SPX was a thing?
Of course! Used it for multiplayer Doom in the 90s. Good times.
I still remember Novell Netware Server… I’ve reinstalled an venerable 4.11 on vmware just for fun not so long time ago…
Yes, of course. 🙂 I installed Netware 4.12 on real hardware not long ago to restore a bunch of old DLT tapes I found. I had to get Arcserve loaded which was a challenge in itself since it only works with a few specific SCSI adapters but in the end I was able to successfully restore the tapes. It was backups from a corporate file server complete with home directories containing 128 kbps MP3s and dancing baby gifs, straight out of the 90s.
It’s actually saying “We like being netted by Captain Netware”. It’s a play on words and very similar to “going online” in German.
That makes more sense…
