Re: Altrix 4700 Teardown Video

It's really hard to be a collector of stuff that draws that sort of power as much as you may want to be. At least a 2000 or Octane you can actually turn on. I really really really want a Sun E10000. I have nowhere to put one nor could I ever afford to turn it on. Alas these big beasts are just to mu...

Re: WTB Sun Sparcstation ELC, LX, 1000e (US/East)

The ELC had a terrible habit of cooking themselves. Back when they were brand new they were dying left and right. It has been many a year since I've seen a working one. Some 1000e have survived but, they seriously are some of the heaviest computers for their size ever made. Pretty much can't be ship...

Re: some sun servers on gc surplus

That's like 2 V240 and 3 V210. All machines to avoid. They are louder than hell. You seriously don't want to be in the same room with a 240. They are almost always the minimum spec 1ghz models when bought in auctions like this. They just sold way more of them than all the later ones. Like massively ...

Re: Was this PCI-X card used in SGI Flame/Smoke systems ?

These aren't totally rare on ebay. I have seen a few. They just never say what it actually was from or did. They just list the words on the card and carry on like that one. I think they sold a lot more of these in security and manufacturing stuff than post production gear. Probably being found in th...

Re: Was this PCI-X card used in SGI Flame/Smoke systems ?

Ah thanks. This does look like it would be a DM12 since this has HD-SDI written all over it. Funny how in all my googling, way back when, Nekochan never hit when all the words I was searching for were right there in the Wiki.

Was this PCI-X card used in SGI Flame/Smoke systems ?

A long time ago I picked up this card at a surplus place. From what I gather it is called a DVS Centaurus or sometimes a IRIS 1.1card. It looked like it might be a high end PC video editing/capture card so I took a gamble of buying it. Technically it sort of is but, not anything used in PC/Apple des...

Sony SDT-9000 SCSI DDS3 Tape Drive 12/24gb

Hey look ! Another tape drive ! I sold my last one here so, might as well try again. This isn't a SGI specific one but, it is a nice DDS3 drive. I hear these can be flashed to be Audio DAT drives but, it looks like you have to get lucky with the hardware version and I have no idea if this is the rig...

Re: Sony DTL-H2510 PlayStation Programmer Tool CD-ROM Drive

I've never understood the crazy demand for people collecting devkits. Sure there's enough software and hardware floating around now that you can mess about and possibly crank out an unofficial game or two but the money these people (not you) who already have like four PS2 TOOLs or multiple N64 devk...

Sony DTL-H2510 PlayStation Programmer Tool CD-ROM Drive

Ok.OK. Don't yell at me too badly for this but, I don't really know where else to post this as it is a strange, odd, and supposedly worth 300 euro CDROM drive from a Playstation 1 development system. I know Nekochan is one of the last holdouts for those that love the odd and strange so, here it is. ...

For sale, "Bob"

Nothing to do with this but, I can't believe nekochan isn't all over this. It's got no bids !!11111!!! Probably just stolen from the Janitor's closet door who happened to be named Bob as well.

SGI Seagate DDS2 DAT Drive 064-0018-001

***Looks to be sold**** This is a SGI labeled DDS2 4/8gb Tape Drive. Pretty standard stuff. Works with anything a standard non-SGI version would. The SGI rom lets you record and play back AudioDAT tapes which nobody probably uses anymore. 99% of DAT drives didn't for copyright reasons. I've used thi...

Random SGI ram for sale Origin 2000, Octane, and O2

My last SGI box found a new home awhile ago but, I just found a bag of spare ram from my SGI owning days. I have no way to test any of it anymore. It's been in a bag in a closet for many years now. There is a bit more octane ram then in the picture. (6) O2 sticks. I think they are all 32mb. (6) Orig...

Re: Has anyone see this EBay posting?

If the scrap value of an Onyx2 is > $300 then there must be more gold in my computer systems than in my wife's jewelry box :mrgreen: Not a chance that is worth $300 in scrap. Maybe $30. He used too many zeros. I have been offered Onyx like that for $50 from actual big recyclers in the past. They kn...

Re: Altix 350 Memory Configuration

Are you sure that your specific RAM modules work properly and are not damaged ? Good luck. I am pretty sure they are ok and compatible. They were installed in the Altix boxes. I have 24 of them and it would be hard to imagine all 24 being bad. When they were in the 350's the systems were a mixed co...
