What's running on it Vishnu?

If I recall correctly from back when the last glaciation was melting, it's Windows for Workgroups on top of DOS 8.0... :shock:

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I work with high voltage for a living, and I've seen a lot of funky HV power supplies, but what the H E double toothpicks is that and wherever did you get it? :shock:

Re: EBAY US - What's this? Infinite Performance

That's the problem with SGI's foray into broadcast media, they kicked out all this high end stuff over the period of about two years, and it could do just about anything (for a big big big price), but they had so little success finding customers for it (other than Autodesk, which used it with Smoke/...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I just photographed the total bajeesus out of a UCC model 1035 terminal that uses a Selectric II with a fair number of hacks. There's like 47 photos total that took me all morning to shoot.[/url] Awesome! :mrgreen: Who's your housekeeper? If I ever uploaded a photo of my computer room somebody'd ca...

Re: IRIX for x86

Typo in that IRC convo, the guy's name is Rich Altmaier not Altmier, and it's entirely possible that he wins the longevity award at SGI, having been employed there from 1991 until 2008, here's his linkedin, if anyone knows the guy how about lobbying him to join our humble membership here?

Re: Why can't we sell/trade original commercial software?

What's particularly irksome is that if you call any of these commercial software vendors and ask to buy their IRIX versions they will not sell them to you! Autodesk made a huge mistake when they discontinued the Maya personal learning edition, their 30 day free trial is useless, unless you spend 8 h...

...replicate something like the Octane door, I have essentially no experience with organic shapes (as opposed to say, a more geometric but still complicated Indigo door) Whoever has 3D scanner - please step forward.

I can recommend John as an outstanding seller, I bought two Onyx4's from him and they arrived in packaging that could easily have withstood World War 3! :)
