Re: Sun sparcstatuin 5 CD-ROM bootable for Indigo r4000 ?

I think I have one of those 3 pin things for a USB DVD drive I have. Totally unrelated to SCSI or SGI, but, it's the same connector (though not guaranteed to be the same electrically).

Re: Octane 2 on bay to us only. Not mine

Oh, eBay... OK, so let's take a look at this "Silicone Graphics" product which is seemingly a "server workstation". I mean, I guess it runs Apache... serverworkstation.png edit: removed a bit because I am stupid and have never owned a VPro Octane, apparently it's meant to be like...

Re: Any SGI in Ontario, Canada?

In Ottawa, would sell an Octane or maybe an Indigo2 if I can confirm both work. Interested?

Re: SGI O2 intro video VHS

I love old SGI tapes. Super useful for when I spend 44 seconds talking about something aesthetically boring or nonphysical (eg. IRIX 5 launch problems) in my SGI History series and want to show something cool on screen.

It's like the company you're talking about has done the editing for you!

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 ...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

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.
