Re: your latest purchase

I just plunked down for an SX Andromeda II from Rondo Music. Very cool! I hadn't realized that Rondo Music still was around. They started as a small family business a few blocks down the road from where I grew up in NJ. I used to go there often as a teenager and drool over the idea of someday buyin...

Re: FS: Boxed Indy R5K

Even has the original receipt and the monitor that came with it (monitor isn't boxed though). According to the receipt, it came with the WebForce Authoring bundle. In addition to the neat little plastic badge on its case, it would've shipped with a bunch of SGI-specific web development tools that w...

This type of power connector was very common back then, especially on SCSI peripherals that used external power bricks.

If you do, please let us know the result so that we can add it to the wiki. Of course, you'd be welcome to add it, if you're so inclined. ;)

Is that true? I was interested in trying MorphOS on that hardware a while ago, but the last time I looked, MorphOS didn't support the NVIDIA GeForce graphics in the 12" G4 models.

Re: Question on Software Revision

The full set was only produced for 6.5. Point releases came as overlays, with quarterly updated Applications CDs. That's not correct. The "full" ASE/AWE sets were revised several times to include updated point releases, development foundations, libraries, and other disks in the shrink-wra...

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

Well, there's this bit of schizophrenia in Windows 10... if you use the Settings application, it won't assign all e-mail tasks to Outlook. You need to also do it in Control Panel. I agree -- that general schizophrenia is a major annoyance with Win10. I've gotten used to looking at both the Control ...

Re: Any chemists on board?

I think that the word chemist in this context is a bit misleading since i think the OP means creating Pharmaceutical compounds by regular chemistry master students (of which i happen to be one). Or do Americans/Brits use the word "chemist" to designate "pharmaceutist"? I never c...

Re: Any chemists on board?

In fact workplace nonchalance is probably the largest danger in my field. You'd be surprised how much energy is contained in seemingly small amounts of substances that are incompatible with each other. :shock: I very strongly agree about that! Familiarity, expressed as nonchalance, is not at all th...

Re: Marktplaats, not mine, Two SGI O2's

Bruker often sold nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) instruments with O2s as instrument controllers. While most sites migrated to other controller platforms around a decade ago, quite a few of these O2s remain in service around the world. A very reliable configuration!

Re: Inventory/Catalog

Achilles heel: you have to keep it up to date. Same here, but I think you always need to keep an inventory up to date, regardless what tool you use By far, the most important point.
