Re: $4k LOT of SGI. Florida, USA, Tezro, Onyx, Octanes. [Ebay] Not Mine

Speaking of BoXX I have been tempted to buy one of their little novelty mini towers called Apexx1. Ridiculously expensive if I were to try and make it myself from NewEgg I could get a similar setup for 1/3 off the price almost. But they have that super cute little case setup. Like a little modern o2...

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

Now that I have an Octane it has become my favorite. It is just so snappy. Even the default 195mhz single proc felt more snappy than the 400mhz o2. Sure, not at render time. But for general modeling and interactivity the Octane has the optimal workstation feel for working with 3d graphics at the tim...

Re: WTB skins/plastics

That'd be pretty rad. I belong to this keyboard/keycaps forum keythority and I had them do custom keycaps. They do group buys to get the double injection plastic mouldings. Hundreds of people sign up. But it was a long process. I ordered Dec of 2015 and just last month the Keycaps arrived. The injec...

Re: $4k LOT of SGI. Florida, USA, Tezro, Onyx, Octanes. [Ebay] Not Mine

What is that purple PC looking thing? Is that an intel rebranded SGI? Don't remember that one.

I'd want the Tezro and maybe one of the Octane2s BUT, this would have to be a group buy. No way I am cutting 4k right now. ;)

I don't know enough about the Rackmount systems to even know how to evaluate.

Re: ScummVM version 2.0 avail for IRIX (12/2017)

I've played most of the Sierra games. Space Quest was my fave series. I still break them out once a year and play through at least one of them. Space Quest 3 is wonderful. Still the type text quest game right before point and click. Kings Quest was something I had only played part 5 and 6. until thi...

Thanks, sent him a pm.


Report back if he has a few.

I have an o2 r5k that I bought off ebay for $75 around Nov and though it is in near mint condition it has a 180 mhz cpu I think. So I am also looking to get at least a 300mhz proc for it.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Yeah, KDE... blech. "Mate" is the default DE setup at work in centOS. Its alright. It isn't getting in my way since 90% of my time is 3d applications or compositing software. One thing I like is any folder browser app that get close to directory opus capability. The press f3 gives me a dua...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I really like centOS. I have always preferred the *.rpm based linux builds. I originally ran fedora for a while and had a very nice Maya/Vray/Mudbox/Softimage build going. In 2016 ran centOS at a place I used to work and now the current place uses centOS as well. Autdesk and most of the render engin...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

In centOS7. One monitor is Maya 2016 and the other is Nuke. Just trying to get the weekend renders prepped for showing the clients.
I am always relieved to see they finished and the render layers have no errors.
