Re: Hello from Melbourne, Australia!

Hi Melbourian,

I say the same thing to everyone...

Go with Octane/Octane2 it was an SGI high point and highly available at reasonable $$.

If you need help getting beast up and running then you can chuck your box in your ute and I can help or get an Uber in the digital age ;-)

Cheers,
