Re: SGI hardware in movies

I used to love driving by that campus and thinking that it was just a bunch of giant SGI machines glommed together ..

Re: Once and For All: Here is how to make a *PROPER* SGI 13W3 to VGA Adapter!! Will work with *ALL* VGA Monitors and KVM

Sorry for the delay in response - I'm in Vienna, Austria. I've made these cables for my O2 and Indy and they work great!

Re: SGI Indy R5000 workstation in the house ..

Okay, so .. I'm a bit confused. Should I follow the wiki info, or .. not .. if not .. why not? Coz it would probably be wise to update the wiki .. and I'm willing to test the changes if you can point out to me what is correct/incorrect.

Re: Indy SCSI USB adapter

Looking forward to details, I have an SGI and an O2 (as well as a few samplers) that I'll probably set up with the SCSI2SD adapter, soon enough ..

I just wanted to say: THANK YOU for this resource. I know I'm grave-digging this thread, but this little effort you've made has given new life to an O2 and an Indy that are now no longer collecting dust. And, in case anyone else needs this and can't do it themselves, contact me. For the price of a b...

Re: [BYTE 1993] Some Indy for you!

I would lust for an SGI machine from these pages alone, I think I must have read this BYTE about a thousand times before I could finally get my own humble Indy .. 'twas mostly a term for its useful life, alas, but I thoroughly enjoyed the distractions it had to offer. Man, what things could've been ...

Re: SGI Indy R5000 workstation in the house ..

ivelegacy: the VGA modification is documented in the wiki here: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/Indy_VGA_Hack

I haven't done it yet, but I will soon. Also, I'd kind of like to upgrade the graphics to 24-bit .. if anyone has an upgrade for sale, let me know.

Re: ElectroGIG 3DGO

I'm not looking to pirate software - just wondering if anyone knows if it completely gone, if its abandonware, or if its just a pipe dream that I'll ever get these project files open again. Seriously, not trying to pirate! (I *did* have an original license once, though.. ;) I'd be quite happy to jus...

ElectroGIG 3DGO

Back in the day I was lucky to have a 3DGO license on my personal Indy, and I messed around in it a fair bit. Going through my archives I found some of my backups of the 3DGO projects I did - and now, just getting back into SGI, I am left wondering if I will ever find that software again, and be abl...

SGI Indy R5000 workstation in the house ..

Hi SGI fans, So I was a heavy SGI user back in the day, had myself a personal Indy stack in my lab for development (software), had some great connections in the Hollywood SGI scene for software and so on, and had a great time until SGI moved to NT and I decided to move to Apple for my hardware needs...
