Re: Testing the waters - SGI racks

@Geoman: That's right, Yves has a lot of machine coming directly from Cortaillod. There are even some photos somewhere of their trip over there. In particular he has some signed machines, e.g. the 5000th Indy R5K or sth like that, lots of octanes, Indigo2's and 4D series (including my former one) a...

Re: Found! WTB 1600sw adapter for Sgi 320 and/or Fuel

Like the title says, I'd like to use my 1600Sw with my 320 and my Fuel. If you have either one, please drop me a note. Thanks to UUNIX!

Re: Fuel fixer uppper

The company said it wasnt an easy job to replace them, cost were 70 eur plus vat plus shipping back to me in my box in a very pink antistatic bag. So not cheap, but the board looks very clean plus it has a nice green sticker now :) And a Fuel has been saved so far. I recommend the company Jan-Jaap, ...

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.
