Re: Finally got my onyx2 running

I tried that. My power has been off for three days because of the hurricane. I'll run it again when I can boot it.

Re: [ebay] SGI ONYX maintenance course binders

Damn it! I was the one emailing that it wasn't letting me buy them because I was in the USA! Whoever got them should scan them and upload. I really really wanted those!

Re: Finally got my onyx2 running

Of course I tried printenv. The eaddr wasn't listed. Even after I reset the env, it still wasn't listed.

Finally got my onyx2 running

I finally got my onyx2 up and running this weekend with a fresh 6.5.30 install. I thought I would post because it was kind of a pain figuring out the net install. I was lucky that I had a bootable disk from the previous owner. I could not figure out how to pull the "MAC" address for the et...

WANTED boards for Onyx2

I would like to upgrade my Onyx2 to quad 500mhz. What kind of price am I looking at? How much does IR4 graphics usually go for? I have no idea what these boards are worth.

Thanks in advance!

BASH the SGI font logo

It has been a while and one of the things that bothers me to death is when SGI changed from the cube to that S G I crappy custom font logo. I swear to god, I get really pissed anytime it comes up in conversation. I hate that logo with a passion. Just look at an Onyx2 with the cube vs the skins with ...

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

Since modern IT is so boring and bland now, I have been working on building my retro office upstairs. I finished the Indigo yesterday. I have the 600MHz O2 setup next to a dual 500MHz G4. I want a sanctuary where time doesn't matter. I want to be able to go in and close the door and work on HTML 3.2...

Re: Project Update Thread: Miniature Indigos

Dude, a CM-2 would be seriously cool. Perhaps in AL instead of 3D printed.

Re: Dodoid Mini Indigo is now on sale!

Thanks for the update. I just bought another mini indigo without the board. Not in any rush. I know you are one person doing all of this so take your time. :) If possible, would you leave the stickers off so I can smooth the indigos? thanks and the IRENKA stuff looks cool. The big thing with Maxxx i...

Re: Dodoid Mini Indigo is now on sale!

I figured that was the cause of the wait. I feel better that you got your case. Hopefully Dodoid will give us an update in here. I am always busy and it takes me a while to get everything done so I totally understand. This is just me checking in and "touch /dodoid/indigo"...
