Re: your latest purchase

Jacques, what are you trying to say? That my sleeper Octane2 looks SHITE!!! just because it doesn't have the old cube logo skins? :D (You're right, as it should have the correct blue skins) [I will of course have to correct this little problem in due course, when the opportunity presents itself] Jus...

Tezro for sale in Georgia (not mine)

It appears to possibly have 8GB of memory, but no DCD or extra cards, it was also more than likely tested without a keyboard and mouse, as it's displaying "001c01 Gfx Cfg Err":

The board passed diags and I'm keeping it.


Correct me if I'm wrong, it appears as though he actually sent you a newer revision on the module, so it's not all bad :D

Re: your latest purchase

Out of the commercial beers Leffe Brune definitely has to be one of my favourites, I love dark Belgian beers. (I also don't really drink beer that often though)

Ian.


I unfortunately missed that one.

Incidentally, it looks like there is another descent game due for "final" release later this year. "Descent Underground"

Re: Octane in UK

I went from a ZX Spectrum 48K/128K machine to PC, then to the PS1 and then back to PC and have stayed with PC ever since. (For gaming, that is.) I still have my first "real" computer being my 486DX4 100MHz. The first game that I played on this machine was Shadowcaster and I was in heaven a...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

I agree with what you've said. All I expect form Apple is that they have full support for a system like the Mac Pro for at least 5 years. By the time they release the next machine, I will have got 5 years of good service from this one, so I'm happy in this regard. I just hope that the next machine w...

Re: $4k LOT of SGI. Florida, USA, Tezro, Onyx, Octanes. [Ebay] Not Mine

That's a fully fledged Flame system, expensive, but worth it if you consider the cost of shipping (you save allot on combined shipping, as it's all in one place) My new Tezro node board has cost me allot of money to be shipped me from the US, but it's worth it, as it's not every day that a quad 1GHz...

I think he means 8GB, judging by the hinv that he posted.

Come on guys, there's no need for this, this is meant to be a place where people who share a common interest, being SGI machines, for what ever reason suits them, can come together interact civilly.

Re: Tezro V12 2xR16K 800MHz 5GB

uunix has wanted a Tezro for a long time and he was lucky enough to get a great deal on his Tezro's and considering that he has had use for three Octane2's in the past, he can replace them with the three Tezro's. :D

That's a pretty good upgrade, as Tezro's are notably faster than Octane2's.
