Re: Best workstation to start with?

I have a question: 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 happens from time to time, I have found them at thrift stores for $15 and on craigslist as free "curb alerts" . If you are willing to dri...

Re: New Tezro owner

Nice purchase! I have the DVD drive, cable, caddies and bootable 15K hard drive to get you started. I am interested in your dual 800 IP board as well.

PM me your address for a shipping quote.

Thanks,
John

Re: Wanted Tezro switch lever

I have tried gluing these before with no luck. If you have a heat gun with a small nozzle that will "weld" the two ends together.

I would ask about the local pickup option as this lets you bid more than you normally would.

Re: Neat Tezro for sale in the US (No international shipping though)

If you get it for less than $800 you are doing well. quad 700 node boards are cheap and if it is a V12 you are ahead of the game, but a V10 still makes a nice system.

The chassis with fair plastics is the hard part to get.

Re: Best workstation to start with?

Although the rack systems have zero cool factor, you get quad 700Mhz, 2 drive bays, DVD drive, a couple PCI slots and V10 for about what an Octane costs. O350 parts are still cheap as well. If you stand it on it's side next to your desk the noise isn't bad at all. This is what my primary SGI system ...

Nope that is about 35 feet of 220v extension cord from my welder. Comes in handy for welding out in the driveway or running the IR4 in the Kitchen. :lol:

Re: Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

It may be possible to move the windows using Desks Overview instead of dragging directly. When I read this I think "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" My ability to actually use an SGI system is not real strong and I am sure there are several things that...

Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

Hey Guys, Over the weekend I was able to do some testing on the different rack graphics systems. I will edit and add items as time permits. I know recondas will get me for not capturing the UV PROM boot :oops: I forgot but will get it posted. The question of installing a DM3 in a second compute chas...

Re: Nicest Tezro I've seen on (EBAY) plus more (not mine)

Yeah I thought it would sell before I could be ready to buy. Ah well, no worries. I would start those Maya/Softimage tuts but I still need to get Perl successfully installed on my o2 because the desktop capture program I am trying to install wont install because it says it is missing perl. I have a...

Re: Tezro, Quad-R16K/1GHz (16MB L2), 4GB, V12/DM3, RAID

I have all of this hardware on hand (with the exception of a router brick) and will try a few combinations this weekend to see what works together.
