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...

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

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.

Re: Want a SGI workstation for really cheap (<50€) or free

In short, you either wait (whilst keeping your eyes open) and hope to get lucky, try and pick up a broken system for peanuts and hope to repair it cheaply, or do some digging around by speaking to recycling firms on the off-chance that they get something in that they're happy to offload cheaply (or ...

Re: An item is only ever worth what someone is willing to pay... :)

Your right, you even see this with SGI machines, a quad 1GHz Tezro node board VS the quad 800MHz (Huge price difference there) or the dual 600MHz Octane2 CPU module for example. True, but supply does play a part. For example, the R10k 195MHz option for Indigo2 is not too expensive as plenty were pr...

And interestingly, I've always been impressed with the sound quality from my Indigo2. Always thought my music sounds better from it than from my PC - of course the PC does have pretty bog-standard onboard audio...

Re: An item is only ever worth what someone is willing to pay... :)

It's an interesting one alright. With my SGIs, I did have price limits of what I was prepared to pay. Fuel prices a few years ago were low enough for me to justify it, but at the moment one from your site would be out of my price range to be honest. About the only time I've spent what you could cons...

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

I think I've seen that first pic before. I once used to show the relative sizes of SGIs to a friend of mine, if I remember correctly. His response was "the Onyx is HUGE!". Hmm, I never thought that. Although it could be because the first Onyx I saw was the full-blown rackmount version. No...

Re: Octane : can't set tod clock

In my experience, Dallas chips are easy to remove generally. They're socketed and providing you have a replacement, it's not too difficult at all to pop the old one out and slot in a replacement. The only thing that can sometimes make things a little tricky is if there's components nearby that make ...

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

I'll pop a couple of pics up in due course, but right now my Fuel has been temporarily popped into the cupboard whilst I set up and commission the replacement for my main PC. Hence the only SGI currently plugged in is my Indigo2, and my room is a bit of a mess with cables everywhere and a PC under t...
