Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

Re: TEZRO WANTED please

Not quiet but very tolerable. A somewhat mechanical humming noise, for as long as it doesn't go into 'fastfan' mode at least. There is also the OLS, which is almost as loud, but equally low. The Onyx makes a lot of noise, but I don't find it that bad. I find the Onyx actually less annoying than a l...

Re: SGI Fuel with Ryzen 5 2400G?

I have a dead fuel with a decent case. No way am I selling it to a case modder. SGIs should stay SGIs.

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

I have never had good luck with Internet Archive images, even for non-bootable discs. Try the ones from WinWorld.

Re: Getting irix onto indigo2 r10k

Okay, that link is the Installation Tools disc. Do you have the others? An IRIX 6.5.22 or 6.5.30 installation consists of two Foundation discs, three Overlay discs, and some semi-optional bits like an Applications disc and an NFS disc. The standalone Installation Tools disc was discontinued during t...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Hmm, pointing devices. One of these days I should get my 3D Space Mouse going. Anyone know what IRIX software it works with?

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

Good posts, probably among the best insights into SGI's internal history out there. That seems relatively uncommon, though I suppose it's going to be more obscure than internal history for any company. In fact, these posts are so detailed I have considered doing an SGI History "Part 3 and a hal...

Many (I would even dare say most) SGI logos are available on the Nekochan FTP server as vector graphic EPS files. These are very useful for things like your silkscreen plans or the Mini Indigo.

Re: Introducing D1

Support call cost variable, depends on how much I have to pay my teacher to let me take a call in class :) . Probably the only time calling at a weird hours is CHEAPER. In all seriousness, while I do not plan to offer telephone support, one-on-one questions via email or forum are welcome once the pr...

Origin2000: 8x 250MHz, 5GB RAM

Running the Origin2000 today (just set up an Xvnc server, hope to have an IO6G so that the SI graphics I installed work soon). I should be able to get a video on my channel about this system out soon-ish, though it does require some strange special considerations given that I can't film it on my nor...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

I think so, if it would show the traces well. Not sure how hi-res Xray gear you are talking about. I don't know how clearly traces show up on xray (as in, how does their ability to block the radiation compare to that of the fiberglass PCB), or how you would separate the board layers so that you coul...

Re: Indigo2 Purple Bag

Looks like it has space for an LCD monitor too? Very cool bag, not really for me at that price given that I don't actually transport my SGIs that much, but a neat bit of history nonetheless.

Re: Mini-PC fit in an SGI hard drive bay?

The D1 is the evolution of this idea. It was originally planned to use an XU4S, but in order to simplify the design and fit better within the PCI form factor, some design changes have been made. The D1 has a USB port, so WiFi on your SGI is software from there on in. The D1 is designed to be an open...

Re: Welcome!

"dig up" is a bit of an overstatement, really. You can just punch "nekonoko, sort ascending" into the search and it returns this.
