Re: Interesting read: A-EON Amiga X500 review from Ars

Just read this, and then did some more research. It seems like the Xena is developed by XMOS, which is apperantly a descendant of INMOS, developer of the Transputer. Apperantly it's theoretically possible to connect other XMOS Xena chips over the Xorro bus, daisy chained to get a crap ton of process...

Re: Inventory/Catalog

I may or may not be working on a worldwide SGI part inventory, collection showcase, and offer making site, and there may or may not be an almost complete version running on Apache on my Mini Indigo ;) .

Re: SGI Power Supply Tester

Cool! I designed a PS/2 to SGI adapter with all three connectors (Indigo+Onyx, 4D, Personal IRIS) based on the existing designs, but it looks like you're using far more modern components (mine was based on the schematic for the old mid-2000s all through-hole ones that seem to be floating around). I ...

Bored in math class, I decided to hit the hamburger menu on my phone's built in calculator app today. Unexpected SGI!

Seemingly, the calculator uses something called CRCalc, which was apperantly written by and released as open source by SGI. Who knew?

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

I actually sell Mini Indigos like that right now (http://dodoid.net/indigo) :) . Miniatures of later systems are planned but they're not really in development yet.

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

I don't know about some of the other parts size wise. It might be multiple glued parts which might look stupid. I bet I can do a door in one piece though.

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

I printed the Logo and use it in my videos. This model is also available on Thingiverse, probably converted from the same place.

SGI's twitter just got renamed to @HPE_HPC... Shame, I liked their posts about old machines.

Re: Why can't we sell/trade original commercial software?

As for selling commercial software I have no idea, but if we're interested in more secure/anonymous/decentralized/accountability-shrugging ways to send pirated software, Freenet would likely work well. We would have to make the USK for it known among ourselves without placing responsibility on Neko ...

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

Yeah, I have a door and caliper, and could provably find Pro/E, but I'm just not really experienced enough (especially not in Pro/E, which I've never used). I mainly use SketchUp, which is great for some jobs and horrible for others.

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

Quite possibly stronger, you're right. I don't know how well I would be able to replicate something like the Octane door, I have essentially no experience with organic shapes (as opposed to say, a more geometric but still complicated Indigo door). I could look to see if I could find an Octane model ...
