Re: Melbourne Australia SGI haul 02 x 5 and Indigo2

Me personally I would use the O2 R5200SC.

I did a bit of a youtube video about the o2 that may interest you:

Re: Downtime

Hey nekonoko I have a bunch of DNS servers around the world (DNS is one of my things! I wrote this little site I love it so much :p http://auditdns.net ). I'm more than happy to set them up as slave servers for you. Obviously this won't help if the server goes offline, but at least DNS will function...

Hey All,

I've done a little review of an SGI Indy, most of the info is common knowledge here but I am interested in some feedback!

Re: O2 Riser swap?

I wonder how the R5200/300 would compare to an R10K CPU (say 195MHz).

Re: Multia Nostalgia

They're pretty small, although they are a bit bigger than most thin clients.

Much smaller than an Indy. Shame they had so many issues!

Re: Multia Nostalgia

These were pretty cool, I had one that ran NT4, but the L2 cache died or something due to overheating and it got binned :(
