Re: Indigo² PSU Pinouts

I'd certainly buy one, but it'd need to be IMPACT capable... :)

Re: Indigo² PSU Pinouts

Good work! It would be great if eventually the Indigo2 PSU output was well known enough to create another Kuba-style adapter :)

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

True. The difference in my mind is that uunix did edit a few of his posts after the red mist faded and accepted he flew off the handle and went OTT. He's also been friendly and polite whenever I've spoken to him. Carlos though never thinks he's ever done anything wrong at all - even when you point i...

Re: Connecting Win7 to irix machines.

It's also maybe worth looking at Sharity. The unlicensed copy only allows for one SMB share to be mounted, but that's fine for my usage. I use it on both my Fuel/Indigo2 to mount an SMB share from my Windows 7 machine. Works a treat!

Re: Your most prized hardware

I don't really have anything rare as such. The hardware I have that I'd consider prized in any way is simply more difficult to replace with modern equivalents these days. I love my little Thinkpad X201 laptop purely because it's one of the last decent laptops Lenovo made and there simply isn't a mor...

Re: The Problem with Apple

actually, one of the reasons given for gluing it all together vs going with screws and clips is to increase stiffness as the machines get thinner. The main issue I have with this is that many other companies manage to make very slim devices where the batteries are NOT glued in place, and I don't re...

Re: O2 and Octane2 Display Modes

There's a full list of supported resolutions on the wiki here: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/VPro Must admit, for some reason the Wiki says that V10 can run 1920x1200x60, but V6 cannot. Not sure of the reason for this as they both have the same framebuffer, and this res should be outside the forbidde...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

Not really. It took something along the lines of a Pentium II 350 to be able to play DVD quality video back without stuttering. Back when I had a Pentium 233, I had a dedicated DVD decoder card to allow smooth playback. Without it, it would stutter like crazy and only VideoCDs and MPEG1 type formats...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

The Indigo2 Impact is an awesome system and definitely on my to-do list for all of the reasons you mentioned. Indeed, it's not a super quick system by later SGI standards of course (my Fuel can run rings around it performance wise). You have to remember of course that the motherboard technology is ...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

For me, the Indigo2 has to be one of the more solid systems - but the higher end Max IMPACT cards are a lot more fragile than Solid IMPACT due to TRAM issues. Part of the issue with later systems as well is that SGI was doing a lot more poorly financially, so some corners were cut to try and reduce ...

A DVI-I cable should also work, and might be a lot easier to find.

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I suspect he's on drugs of some kind (You know Europe - legal drugs and all!) and probably blames us for things that are hilariously not our faults. Wouldn't surprise me. He went on loads about the eBay situation he had a couple of years ago. Even when I said that (IMHO - given my limited knowledge...

He emailed me personally to bitch about this in his usual barely-coherent fashion a couple months back, as well...guy's really got a screw loose. Me too. I actually did swap a few e-mails with him until the his following personality traits led me to ignoring him: 1) Makes claims that he cannot supp...

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

With a good fan replacement, the Fuel can become a quiet system too. Mine is quieter than my fan-modded Indigo2, although admittedly not as quiet as my Nocturna O2. I mainly use my Fuel for compiling, seeing as it's so much quicker than my Indigo2.
