Re: Indigo R3000

I ended up spending some time sick and didn't get to digging out and looking at the machine promptly. The skins are really good. Completely intact, minimal scuffing. It turns out that it doesn't power on though. It does have disk sleds, but no disk. I didn't have time yet to open it up to inventory ...

Indigo R3000

I have an Indigo R3000 machine that I haven't touched in probably 8 years that I think should find a home that will love it more. I can look into it more if there is serious interest, but off the top of my head, I believe it has 64MB RAM, and XS or better graphics. That is all I can actually remembe...

Indy: Upgrade from XL8 to XZ, Irix 5.3

What packages need installed (and perhaps tracked down first) to be able to make XZ work? I don't like the suggestion I've seen (elsewhere) for re-installing.

I thought a quick question might save me a lot of time trying experimentally, especially since I've never seriously used Irix 5.3 before.

FS: HP GigE for HP 9000 A4929-60001

I have a 64bit PCI gige card labeled HP A4929-60001. This appears to be for HP 9000 computers only. This is untested as I have no such machines. It is available on a sliding scale. If you want to pick it up in 17603, then it is free. It is $10 (shipping included) in the US. Internationally, it is $1...

Re: Hedera project update (IRIX 5.3)

Third: I'm strongly considering some sort of revision control. I know it sounds somewhat silly for a single-person project, but I'm getting tired of having to start over from the beginning with packages, especially given some of the IRIX packaging utilities' penchant for zeroing out my IDB files no...

Re: Free(ish): 3DLabs Oxygen GVX210

Nobody? What if I threaten to toss it in the trash? That card was a monster back in time. Reminds me my old Elsa Gloria XXL, although the Elsa was less powerful by far. I would take it if it was PCI :). If it was PCI, that would have probably meant I'd have actually gotten some use out of it. Oh well.

Re: FS: Indigo2 Impact Video card, flex cables, and BOB

I do believe it is EV1 instead of EV3, but I do wish I could find a reliable looking page giving the EV1 and EV3 part numbers to check against.

FS: Indigo2 Impact Video card, flex cables, and BOB

I believe this is the card for pre-Impact I2s. The assembly number is 030-0662-005. The BOB says Galileo Video. I am missing the 26 pin cable to connect the BOB to the card, but I believe that is obtainable, or at least that you can wire one together yourself. Shipping in the US would probably be ab...

Free(ish): 3DLabs Oxygen GVX210

This is a "pro" 3D card for PCs from circa 2000. It is an AGP pro card. This is free for the cost of shipping (I'd guess about $12 in the US). I suspect this is destined for the trash, but I've seen people occasionally talking about piecing together vintage PC workstation style systems, I ...

Re: Indigo 2 Extreme graphics option, for cost of shipping

To Berlin (since I had to pick a city), UPS says a staggering $200. USPS says a more reasonable $75ish.

Re: Indigo 2 Extreme graphics option, for cost of shipping

So, we've reached the point where no one wants Extreme graphics.

Maybe it's time to recycle it after all. :(

Indigo 2 Extreme graphics option, for cost of shipping

I have an Extreme graphics 3 card set. To be honest, I've never actually fired it up. It was thrown in with a Solid Impact machine that I was buying at the time. I'll entertain any offer over the price of shipping it from 17603 (I think it will fit in a flat rate box, which would cost about $16) Or,...

2x Ros hyperSPARC CPUs

These are part # 270-6214-58 and they have blue heatsinks. I believe they are 125 mhz. I tested them when I got them (about 2 years ago), but I haven't retested them just now, so it might be best to consider these untested and AS-IS. Make an offer. I'm kinda thinking $50, shipping included (for the ...

Re: Editing 4k on MacBook Air video

Of course, even with a MacPro, you still would have to buy the Red Rocket to get that performance.
