Re: how things should be shipped properly

Yeah, you're always limited. My company ships a lot of stuff around Europe. Most arrives fine, but we've had a 24" monitor who's box was clearly pierced by something long and sharp, and a pallet that somehow ended up being partially crushed from one side (amazingly only one docking station, key...

Re: Monitor suggestions for high-DPI experiment

Mucho drool factor there... Good to see Viewsonic back in the game, they made some razor sharp CRT's ~Y2K. Their subsequent flatpanel displays were pretty shoddy and quite efficient at brand destruction. I've been in the market for a new display o.0. What are the mounting options? Is it made by Vie...

Nice little system, you don't see too many of the 175MHz R10ks in Indigo2s.

Re: your latest purchase

Yeah, dogs are awesome! My family had a border collie until a few years ago and I've always wanted my own dog at some point. When we were in a rented house with a carpeted hallway, plus we both worked full time out the house, it was out the question. However now, we've bought a house with lots of wo...

Well, there's a Sun folder, so I don't see why not :)

Re: Indigo 2 Solid Impact HD problem

Sounds like either there's an issue with the internal terminator, or you might have somehow set the drive to the same ID as the controller or something like that. Make sure the SCSI ID connector on the drive sled is connected to the drive - this should set the ID automatically.

Re: your latest purchase

A puppy!

She's a Borador (Border Collie / Labrador cross), and we collect her from the farm next weekend. So looking forward to having a little companion in my man cave whilst I'm working :)

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

For me, it's the Indigo2. Mainly because it was the first SGI machine I ever saw, and I fell in love with it's funky purple design immediately. My dad had a job as the assistant technical manager at the new Virtual Reality centre at a local University (he worked mainly on the supporting PCs incident...

Re: Fuel prototype (BLUE!)

What Ian said. There's plenty on here that I find ridiculous, and I just ignore this stuff. At the end of the day though, this is an SGI forum, and this is a thread about a prototype SGI computer in a funky coloured case, hence, lots of people are interested in it (myself included). It's also worth ...

Re: your latest purchase

I dunno, the MOT does have its uses for keeping some of the worst death-traps off the road. OK, sometimes it goes a bit too OTT with things, but I don't have a problem with it generally. I had to replace my old car last year (2000 VW Bora) - not because it failed the MOT, but because the power steer...

Re: Firefox3 rebuild

Doesn't bother me. I'm not a fan of the later versions anyway. I ditched Firefox as my primary browser several years ago after the Australis turd landed. Admittedly, something newer than 3.0.19 would be nice on Irix, but I appreciate that it's a massive job porting it...

Re: Fragged my friends fuel

I can't really help with the issue you've got, but for future reference, I recommend using xfsdump to clone a drive. There's a full guide on Ian's site which works well.

Re: Heads up: Photobucket is nuking its reason to live

Honestly, I do accept why they've made such a change. What I don't accept are that firstly the change seems to have been very poorly communicated. Second there's not been much notice of the change. Third, the only option for hotlinking costs a bloody fortune. If they'd given at least 1 month notice,...

Re: Heads up: Photobucket is nuking its reason to live

I think we need to do as much as possible to persuade people to attach the pictures here, rather than hosting them on 3rd party sites. Thanks for the work you've done with these! I wonder if any of the dead ones could be pinched from the Internet Archive perhaps?
