Of Sun Ray laptops, MIPS and getting root on them

I like Sun Ray laptops. They make surprisingly useful thin clients. Here, going from right to left, I'm playing Quake on my Solaris UltraBook IIi while it serves a Sun Ray session via Sun Ray Server Software (SRSS) to my silver Sun Ray 2N in the middle, and on my Accutech Gobi on the left I'm root.
Wait, what? Root on a thin client?

Let's rewind a little.

Crypto Ancienne 2.2: now supported on AmigaOS and classic MacOS/MPW

As threatened we're up to the next checkpoint with Crypto Ancienne, the TLS 1.2/1.3 library we maintain for pre-C99 vintage compilers and architectures, so here's version 2.2, or "Crypto Ancienne Meets the Hooded Fang" (read about previous releases).

New checkpoints are always an opportunity for new ports. Why am I showing you a picture of my Amiga Technologies A4000T? Because AmigaOS 3.9 is one of them!
