I was thinking a mini one that could hold a Rpi/BBB/Opi/etc. on what would be the IP30.

You can print an entire Octane, including most of the parts.

Re: 3D Print Octane front door?

If you open the .iv on a SGI in Inventor Viewer it definitely has the front cover shape, but I don't think the door and cover are separate. I didn't check if there were referenced textures in the .iv and obviously didn't bother to upload any. With minimal trickery the demo can be loaded if you have ...

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

Or you can get the impact ready powersupply and if you ever want to run an impact graphics card you'll be ready (well, you need the riser too I guess). Just make sure you plug the impact/gio power into the terminator on the powersupply if you don't have an impact graphics card installed (regardless ...

Re: WTB: Origin 350 for graphics mod

Possibly a V-Brick with a V12 in it (or presumably any Octane style V-Pro). Or modified X-Brick maybe? I recall someone was trying that and it didn't provide power, but they piped in the power and it worked? Finding an Origin 350 will probably be easier. Getting a G-Brick would be nice if you have t...

Re: O2 Set SCSI boot drive

You should be able to reset the PROM environment variables with resetenv too, so no jumpers required.

Re: New haul: 2 x Octanes, Q about TMEZZ TRAM module upgrades

Ah, I didn't see this before so congrats on the Octane life. I've found the CADduo card in a few odd places - like single graphics Octanes such as yours and Origin 200 servers that don't have any graphics. I think they were used by SGI resellers to add 100 mbit ethernet ports sometimes, and the PS/2...

Re: Octane2 chassis won't work with other mainboards

Having spent some time inventorying unit C I can say it had a rough life - the top handles of both the XIO carrier and the IP30 board were smashed up pretty bad, bent screws, the XIO carrier top handle fell off once I tried to use it to pull the release mechanism. Maybe pulling the front off wouldn'...

Inventory/Catalog

I was wondering if anyone has a system, or is considering some kind of catalog or inventory for their hardware (or not so vintage, or other hobbies, or ...). I have been looking to have spare parts or a second machine for most of my collection. Many of the spares are getting packed up and stored in ...

Re: your latest purchase

I like fast prime lenses. I usually run Canon, and have a couple film bodies and a several revisions old crop sensor DSLR. I don't have enough primes though, just a 50/1.4. I would like to get the SIGMA 85/1.4 ART but it's a lot of money and it's a lot of weight. Now that it's getting bright out I c...
