Re: Wanted:Iris 3000 series keyboard and mouse

Nice to see some GL2-W screenshots. Any chance to give us some more? Did you have something specific in mind? If there is a /etc/*release can you cat its contents? Also, what does uname (with whatever available flags) return? I ask because my own research indicates that GL2-Xx.x was originally call...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

i heard of people getting SGI workstations for free, how they did it? Is still possible today? What are the places to look where It's increasingly difficult. A lot of us got them from companies/universities who were offloading their systems in the early-late 2000s. I'll echo what Trippynet posted. ...

Re: Best workstation to start?

First, I wouldn't get started with an O2. They are under powered and break easily... the Indigo2 R10000 will beat the O2 at almost everything (and I have both). The O2 is sluggish to react to user input, almost any other SGI system will always be responsive even when under load... I absolutely agre...

Re: Can you identify this machine?

For someone with tenacity and the time, a Professional Iris would be a great restoration project.

I got my Irises (like Macs I guess :) ) from eBay and university surplus.
In the past five years my observation has been that the supply through both of those channels is diminishing. :|

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

What Apple hardware do we have? Mac Classic with 4MB of RAM, external 100Mb hard drive, and Apple 600e CD-ROM drive. I use it as a terminal for my IRIS systems (serial connection) if they're broken. It runs OS 7.5.3 B&W PowerMac G3 with 1.5GB of RAM and a couple of 20GB hard disks. It dual boot...

Re: PayPal Donation Link Added

Donation made. 8-)
I would hate to lose the site. Nekochan Net and nekonoko have been great.
Without this site I would have never been able to get my Personal Iris, Indigo, and Indy up and running again.

Hi dhjj. :)
It might help if we had an idea where you're located.

EDIT
Based on a couple of your previous posts, are you still located in Chicago or somewhere else now?

Re: Project system: SGI IRIS 3000 series deskside

Congratulations on the first filial her example, SAQ. :)

I would love an IRIS 3000. Unfortunately, I currently have neither the time, money, nor space to devote to such an endeavor—bit far for me to justify the travel also.
But cool on both counts.

In the book, Dave Cutler (Microsoft lead architect of NT) was a huge proponent of MIPS processors and a tyrant in regards to keeping both the x86 and...
