Re: A lot of bricks pop up today. Not from me.

I don't see much changed on eBay, unless they all sold already. Are they somewhere else?

Re: FS: Boxed Indy R5K

I think that's all of our questons.
Are you expecting $200 or $1500?

If you're willing to do like $200, I would be interested for sure, so long as shipping was sane, but I understand that the value of a boxed system may, to some, exceed that.

Re: IPv6!!!!

6.5.30 (and some of the later 6.9.2x'es) has some niceties introduced long after MIPS products had ended. It even does 64 bit time so that IRIX systems will survive the 2038 UNIX epoch.

Re: Dodoid Mini Indigo is now on sale!

How have you made labels? I wonder why don't (if it's possible) put a micro drive (through a USB-CF adapter) inside the case. Can I see the inside? Is there a mechanical drawing sheet? Nice project :) LOL, just realized I forgot to get back to you. Labels were made by a company called StickerYou, k...

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

Oh come on, it's a real Type 1 hypervisor (Xen) with a number of OSes on top and some hypervisor control features. I agree that USB devices are annoying though. Thumb drives are alright, you can mount them to any VM using Xen Virtual Disks from the Qubes Manager which only takes a few seconds, but o...

Re: FS: Boxed Indy R5K

WOW. I would absolutely love to do an Indy unboxing on my channel, but I suspect I would have to pay a lot for this box (no pun intended). Also, "a descendant of the Indy will be used in Time Warner's test of interactive TV" I think I've seen pictures of that thing while working on my SGI ...

I would like one of the 14" boxes to run Kronos, I think I might order soon. IMO 12.5" (New MacBook, ThinkPad X220, etc.) is the minimum. Anything less is cramped and awkward.

Pinebook looks nice. 64 bit ARM-powered MacBook Air looking thing (in MacBook Air sizes!) for $90 or $100.

I recently got a late model 17" G4 from a garage sale. $25! It's in my latest video, nice machine.

Re: Rising NeXTStation prices

Hoard your SGIs I suppose!

They don't have the "Steve Jobs" factor, but your 20 Indys will surely be worth something someday. The days of the $25 decommissioned Onyx are (far before I ever got into SGIs) over.

Re: The unfortunate reality of being at the mercy of clouds

Computers fail. I would rather the failure happen in my house, next to my reinstall CDs and screwdrivers, rather than in a datacenter where they're doing who knows what.

Re: MaXX is back!

I really like the SGI keyboards and mice in the respective settings windows. Maybe represent graphics/monitor settings with a 13w3 connector :D ?

This is the image placeholder in one of my upcoming projects (not IRENKA, but maybe it should be):

Anyone have the 1995 SIGGRAPH CD?

I've recently learned about a partially lost animated short named "Johnny Quasar" or "The Adventures Of Johnny Quasar". It was the short predecessor to Jimmy Neutron, a popular animated TV show from the 2000s. An 8 second clip of Johnny introducing himself was found on the studio...

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

Windows 10 is an operating system trying to be Windows Phone and Windows 7 at the same time, and it's really bad at both. I dumped it for Qubes OS a few months ago. I can still run my Windows apps in Windows 7 HVMs, and Qubes handles interoperability extremely well. Installing an XP VM for IE8 testi...
