Re: your latest purchase

Well, I've just bought a NUC for myself. Core i5-7260U (trying to bodge Windows 7 onto this will be fun!), 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and a 2TB rust spinner for data. Should arrive in a week's time, so I can have some fun trying to get it running, migrate everything over from my Mac Mini, and hopefully get ...

Re: your latest purchase

It's not released yet, but there's a Lenovo blog post confirming that it is happening, and there has been a sneaky picture or two on El Reg as well. Not sure of all the details of it mind you, but the classic keyboard and a none-16:9 screen are pretty much confirmed.

Re: your latest purchase

I'm busy trying to decide what my next purchase (or two) will be as I'd like to make a bit of a significant investment in computing hardware this year. Mainly as the last time I spent any significant sum on things was several years ago when I got my Fuel. Hence, trying to decide between the followin...

Re: WTB : SGI compliant female 13W3 to male VGA cable (short length OK)

If you're struggling to find one, another option is a 13W3 gender changer. Will cost another $25 or so, but worth considering if all else fails.

Wow, I think my wife would have a fit if I tried to install my O2 onto my bedside table :D

That must be a noisy/cosy room!

My room is toasty enough with just my Indigo2 and PC on at the moment :)

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

Well, I've had my Fuel and Indigo2 both on during the last week, in fact the Indigo2 is on right now playing music. For some reason, it does sound better than my PC for music. Also been trying to compile some XMMS plugins with varying degrees of success...

Re: Keyboard and mouse advice

I agree with uunix on this. I have the later granite keyboard and mouse, and its definitely the nicest way to interact with your SGI!

Re: Are we a dying breed?

SGIs will continue to become more and more niche, the simple reason being that they are becoming less useful in the modern world due to their age - and mainly due to the web IMO. Similarly as the hardware grows older, failures become more common. I can understand why for some people who've had SGIs ...

Re: 900Mhz Fuel and Octane 2 husk for sale

According to the Fuel manual, a blinking red/white lightbar means "Graphics configuration error". Fuels can be finicky systems, you could try removing and re-seating the graphics card to see if this will help. Failing that, your null modem cable should hopefully provide more info once it a...

Re: 900Mhz Fuel and Octane 2 husk for sale

i powered the system up and I get a solid red light then it blinks white and no image displays on the screen. I'm sorry for no posting this earlier but I've been very busy. How long did you leave it running? The red LED to start with is normal, then the blinking white LED is the system performing i...

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

My SGIs were used a couple of times a week until earlier this year (usually 2-3 hours of use at a weekend). Then what with moving house (lots of DIY jobs to do), and getting a puppy, I have to admit they've not been used as regularly over the last few months. Maybe a couple of times a month? I expec...

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

RF: I agree with you. I initially found Ive to be a bit odd and quirky, but he did post some interesting things in the past. Problem is the guy just cannot seem to control his tongue and never ever thinks he's in the wrong. I've never once seen him apologise for anything. I get that with English not...

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

Thanks Hakimoto, I'm sure many of us appreciate the transparency here. I'm not going to get involved with this guy's disputes between Dexter and Ian as frankly, I don't know the whole story there. If either of them want to set the record straight on Reddit, it's probably best it comes from someone w...
