Re: Indigo Fresh Install Problems

The jumpers to set the block size on the XM-xxxx drives are pads on the circuit board that you can cut with an X-Acto knife. You normally cut the outermost pad (see http://rainbow.ldeo.columbia.edu/documentation/sgi-faq/hardware/40.html). Yes - this. I have at least one Toshiba drive where I had to...

Re: WTB : SGI compliant female 13W3 to male VGA cable (short length OK)

I don't have an adapter to sell you, but holy crap, a 100ft 13w3 cable??? Was it intended for having an Onyx rack in a server room and monitor at a desk or something?

Exactly! This is a broad trend. Apple II prices have gone up tremendously, as have BeBox prices... NeXTStations and Indys, as you say, are heading in the same direction.
