Re: Irix quick Referance Sheet

This is an old thread (and that's an understatement), but the document in question is hard to find now and still quite useful.

Please let me know if I should share it, whoever might (still) be interested in it.

Re: Using NetBSD's pkgsrc on IRIX

rumble, that would indeed be interesting.

I've never tried pkgsrc for IRIX. What is the current situation? (Where can I possibly read more about it?)

Re: SALE: SGI Tezro 4x1Ghz / Lucid / VBOB / DmediaPro / Betacam Recorder / Wacom / Monitor + More! (EUROPE)

IIRC the DCD became unavailable at some point, and Discreet changed their setup to include an external DVI splitter box. It's in the IFFS setup manuals. Now I also remember having read about it, in later Flame and Smoke manuals (possibly around the “2007” releases). The workaround was peculiar, but...

Re: SALE: SGI Tezro 4x1Ghz / Lucid / VBOB / DmediaPro / Betacam Recorder / Wacom / Monitor + More! (EUROPE)

It does not come with a DCD. The system was originally used by NBC in the US. Unusual, especially for broadcast usage. Unless it was used for (e.g.) motion graphics and long-form editing... but still strange, considering the total cost, to have a DCD or not wouldn't seem like terribly much of a cos...

Re: [UK] DEC/Compaq/HP ATI 7500 PCI Graphics Card

Quite rare indeed and for this price very irresistible to some, I can imagine. These were, until fairly recently even (by various resellers), offered for around a thousand euros/dollars. Total insanity. I had one of these ‘original’ cards (which came with a DS15) and also some ‘generic’ ones, but I ...

Last chance: Get it for as low as € 50. Final offer before it's scrapped.

Re: FS/T: SGI IP53 dual-processor 700-MHz R16000 nodeboard (e.g. for a Tezro)

Just from looking at it I would have thought it was a quad by the cover sticker showing 4 cups and the 4 cpu solder pin whatchmacallits on the bottom. Well, yes, but I'm quite certain it's dual-processor only. (Unless I somehow overlooked that two were disabled somehow...) Does the dual cpu node bo...

WTB/T: High IMPACT-AA or Maximum IMPACT graphics board set

Looking for an SGI Indigo² High IMPACT-AA or Maximum IMPACT graphics board set and the latter preferably with at least one (4-Mbyte) TRAM module, as I already have one and need one more to reach the required amount of two.

As far as possible trades go, see this thread this thread.

FS/T: SGI, PC, etc. parts, (professional) video and other items

The following is for sale, or trade possibly. Most of the listed items I've used together with SGI IRIX and HP(E)/Compaq/DEC OpenVMS and Digital/Tru64 UNIX systems and served me very well. Much of this has been spoken for, sold or recycled, as of now. Whatever wasn't I'll (at most) hold onto for som...

SOLD: SGI IP53 dual-processor 700-MHz R16000 nodeboard (e.g. for a Tezro)

SGI IP53 dual-processor 700-MHz MIPS R16000 node board (P/N: 030-1869-001 ), for e.g. a Tezro. This has been removed in working condition from a working Tezro system and it's (therefore) used and in very good condition. Only some of the plastic memory clamps appear to have some damage, but function ...

Re: [Review] ELECTROGIG 3DGO

Let me first say that this is an amazing thread! I still have an original CD release of ElectroGIG 3DGO somewhere. Geoman, I agree and it's the same for me. Collecting hardware, in and by itself, was never it for me. (Especially as a graphic designer.) Rather, or above all, the fascination with what...

Re: SCSI2SD+microSD bundles in stock and ready to ship from USA

My questions were apparently never answered, but I see that one doesn't need to order with a µSD card.

I noticed on the site that they're out of stock. When will they be in stock again?
