Re: SGI IRIS Universe Magazine sold on eBay for $100?!

I was watching that. I used to have a stack. Who in their right mind would pay 100 bucks? I bet someone put a large sum to ensure they would win and someone else wanted it and started bidding it up.

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

CRT repair guy total waste of time. There is a guy who services arcade machines and has a lot of services for crt monitors for the cabinets listed. I’m going to try him. I’m going to see if he will look at the indigo power supply as well. The 4011p is blinking amber and it looks like a h/v deflectio...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

Of course as soon as I post a reply to this I turn my onyx2 on and I hear a pop then that burning electronics smell. Everything seems okay with the system. I took out the tape drive and rebooted. I’m hoping it was that drive. The smell went away. I am about to take my gdm4011p to a crt repair guy in...

Re: TEZRO WANTED please

I fired up the onyx2 upstairs with the tezro in the basement. The Onyx2 has a ambient hum fan noise that I kind of like. It reminds me of that loop sound of the enterprise D from Star Trek tng. The tezro just sounds annoying. I’m not saying don’t buy a Tezro, I’m just saying be prepared to for the f...

Re: Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

I just popped my 4th Indigo power supply. I have been fortunate that Indigo and old Indigo hard drives (the big ones from back in the day) have been the only hardware I have had trouble with. Is the Indigo power supply difficult to recap/refurb?

Re: TEZRO WANTED please

I have been running my Tezro and the thing is just so loud. I swear I can deal with the Onyx2 noise better than the Tezro. It is so bad, I have pulled my dcd v12 Octane2 back out to use on my desktop. Loud fans have never really bothered me before the Tezro.

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!

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!

The noise has never bothered me. I actually like it. I miss the days of scsi drives that sounded like coffee makers lol

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 ...
