Re: getting a vehicle for moving computers

I picked up a GMC 2500 van. Pictures soon.

I figured it would be a good investment to pick up some gear in the future.

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

One of the crimsons has been sold, and it looks like i have a buyer lined up to buy the second. Unless the second buyer drops out, consider these both sold.

Re: Setting up lightpptd on IRIX 6.5

Thanks for the reccomendation for httpi. Might work good too. Just looking for a webserver to host some music and a tiny ...

Re: Onyx2 temp error

It is a deskside. Took it all apart. Clean as can be. Nothing blocked or dusty when looking through the top air intake grate. It appears to be starting up now without powering off. I removed the power supply and fan tray to look around but found nothing out of place. Is there a utility to check temp...

It had power to it, but with the key off. Both the orange fan light and the orange temp light are lit and i get the t...

Re: sgi crimsons. 2 of them

i dealt with the ungodly shipping to get them here. granted the first one was more reasonable, still had to rent a car and go to the opposite end of the state and back a couple times to get it though....
