Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

There are a couple of controller boards on ebay for next to nothing, but then if they don't work, then it's just wasted. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IBM-72-Pin-MCA-ESDI-Internal-Hard-drive-Controller-/152526774199?hash=item23834ddfb7:g:5Z8AAOSwdGFYrxX0 I think I will have to visit my loft and see wha...

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

Most of the DBA drives I've tried won't spin-up and nothing helps. If you can't find any replacement, you can experiment with an additional MCA SCSI controller, it was one of the possible solutions when I had the same problem 7 years ago: PS/2 70 and SCSI-2 Adapter /A . Try searching in comp.sys.ibm...

New version of OS/2

The title says it all: What is dead may never die: a new version of OS/2 just arrived. $99 for a Personal Edition. Can run in VirtualBox.

Re: Too many beers? IBM PS/2 Model 70 MCA

I burned a lot of money before I've got a working DBA drive for the PS/70. It's probably the oldest computer in my collection, currently running OS/2 2.0.

I suppose we'll see Xeon Superdomes soon.

Superdome X machines are already available.

A collection of assorted VW320/540 files. Would it be possible to upload them somewhere on Nekochan?

Re: SGI N-Brick - Anyone Familiar with this item?

AFAIK the N-Brick is used to connect InfiniteReality G-bricks to the compute C-bricks. You need a NUMAlink router or R-brick to connect more than 2 O350 compute modules.

Re: INDY SCA HD

I like to install SCA hard drive. In the INDY and use SCSI SCA 80 PIN NAAR 68 50 PIN SCSI Adapter. will this work? And will it fit in the INDY? From Ian's SCSI page : Indy normally uses 1" 50pin disks; 1.6" is possible, but prevents the use of the upper disk bay. 68pin and 80pin disks can...

Something like this: SGI DVI Video option for Fuel? Again, searching for 030-1894-002 yields nothing... I've e-mailed mashek on eBay, but received no response so far.

Is this the DM7

Is this the DM7? The auction is simply called SGI PCI SDI Video Option for Fuel and I've never seen one before. Searching for 030-1711-001 and 030-1712-001 doesn't help.

Re: 15th Birthday of the SGI Fuel

Fuel was more of a stop gap imo. They could have really made a successor to the Octane with it and given it an upgraded VPro and Dual CPUs to coincide with the upgraded internal scsi among other things. Sadly we'll never know what a fully committed SGI could have produced instead. yeah coming from ...

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

+1 for me. One interesting requirement is that the PSU needs a snap-in IEC power flange, the ones where flange is held by screws don't fit - Fuel's case has protruding metal in that area and the plastic just gets in the way. It doesn't purely exclude all PSU's with the flange but it depends on the s...
