SPARCStations

On Friday, Ben and I managed to scavenge some a pair of sweet SPARCStation 5s (as well as a Sun monitor, mouse, and some cables too) from the 8th floor of Olin. Unfortunately we have no sun keyboards to plug into it (I think we're looking for a sun type 5c keyboard but I'm not positive.) I can see them boot some message about a keyboard but it disapears before I have time to read it.

Check out these sexy beasts:

Thank You Dr. Fourier

Recently, I noticed that there don't seem to be any Free (as in GNU) Fourier/Laplace/Z tables. Wikipedia has Integral Tables and (Wikipedia also has Fourier Tables (which aren't particularity useful because they use different normalization constants than I need) but what I envision is even more than that. I'd like to see Free tables where you can select specific and specific types of entries and export to LaTeX, MathML, PDF, PS, or rasterize to PNG at a given size. This would be a great tool for students. Does any one know of any free tables or have any thoughts on this?

As a final thought: u(t)\overset \mathcal{F} \longleftrightarrow \frac{1}{{j\omega }} + \pi \delta (\omega )

(and that too far to long to set)
