Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Hi Nekochaners, Not sure which is harder... 1. Getting spouse approval or 2. Getting 30 Kg Tezro shipped to Oz without damage. ;) Shipping was nearly AUD $500 , so should be fast service and so minimize likelihood of damage. As an aside I ordered couple of ACARD scsi/sata adaptors to allow me to pu...

Re: Mac Pro 2013

I used one of those touch-strip thingies on a thinkpad x1 and not only did it put me off thinkpads for life, it's put me off even considering a new mbp. Which is a shame, I have a tb3 egpu I use on pc and would like to play with on mac. Perhaps with enough dongles and cables I can connect it to my ...

Re: Mac Pro 2013

This was the very first Mac that I bought new and in my honest opinion, it's been an absolute pleasure to use! Just so that there's no misunderstanding, I cannot speak for people in the industry, but for home use , it's been fantastic for a number of reasons: 1) It's small form factor. 2) It's dead...

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

It is starting to look more appealing already. Indeed, find out more info and then make them a lower offer if ok.

Re: Fuel fixer uppper

I do have it in my backlog to create a map of DS1780 chips to the signals they monitor (voltages AND fans), haven't had time for that yet - it will eventually happen :) From what I could find online, the problem with the bad ds1780 chips is mainly with the earlier Fuel models, so I suppose the 500 ...

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

Oh of course cables hidden. I am in the process of designing it as a single card. It would look like a modern graphics card, covered by a shroud (maybe I could put the SGI cube on it!). The main wires are as follows: GA620T Ethernet <-> ODROID-XU4S Ethernet GA620T 5V Power Pins --> ODROID-XU4S 5V P...

Re: FPA from a 350 Workstation.

I have a 350 Workstation with a blown up mainboard. Bought it from a SGI guy who had more of those. I like the case and planned to mod some other mainboard in it. Bought i like 10 years ago, and now finally have some time to "mod", or as some other would say "slaughter". Someone...

Re: IRIX Source code

Mhh yes, that is true indeed. I suppose the IRIX codebase is similarly complex.

What is, generally speaking, the most usuable (covering the most platforms) non-IRIX OS for ex SGI Mips boxen, OpenBSD?

IRIX Source code

Lazy question, who currently holds the rights to the IRIX source code, is it HPE ?

Possibly this was discussed before, I was just musing if with crowdfunding the current owner
might be persuaded to open source it.
