Re: name the next zombie to rise from the dead

I now have a unique ``Octane Crimson'' here, so that's one Rackable can't use : http://miod.online.fr/octane_crimson.jpg (WARNING: actual blood on the link, don't look if you can't stand the view of blood) Wow, you got the silicon graphics special edition OJ Simpson octane!

Re: name the next zombie to rise from the dead

Cyclone- I'd buy that for a dollar!! I must say, I actually like that name, seeing as it is giving a powerful name to something that sounds weak, "cloud computing" sounds fluffy and sissy and weak. "Cyclone" is however powerful, just like fuel, o2, octane, indy, and challenger so...

Re: USA Today: SGI rises from the ashes

I can echo the disappointment in not buying during the penny stock days. I thought about it, wasn't involved in trading at the times, but now its doing well as soon as I get involved. Damn!

EDIT: I probably would've blown all my earnings from new SGI on old SGI parts and such :D

Re: Ebay auction...wtf?

sounds like either the seller having someone upbid it, or just someone trying to be a douche. or it could be legit, just an inexperienced user "using his "modem" to buy on the internets". but if it were an actual user, as bri3d points out sniper bidding would be a lot more effici...

where to find OLD sunOS and solaris

hello, this coming after the news that Oracle closed Solaris, but is there any place one could download the old versions of sunOS and Solaris for SPARC, and are these versions now closed as well? I'd like to get ahold of these and archive them while I can so I can still use my SPARCstations in the f...

Re: Toyota...

The heating unit in the driver seat of my 2000 Chevy Blazer (ah, the irony) caught fire. I was able to blast it with a chemical extinguisher and disconnect the electrical. I had to cut out the wiring harness with a pocket knife. Unfortunately the extinguisher left the entire inside of my truck coat...

FS: Sun Ultra1 parts

hello all, I am parting out a sun ultra1, and for obvious reasons (selling a whole unit costs more for shipping than the system is worth (about x4-x5)). It has a turbogx card. the motherboard works, but it seems that it has a dead nvram battery (insanely easily hacked to work). if you are interested...

Re: Restore your yellowed plastics?

apparently,
3% drugstore H2O2 works just as well with a different version, and reduces the risk of seriously decomposing the plastic like what is possible with stronger peroxide... found it here http://www.flickr.com/photos/66071596@N00/3822230561/

Re: Rap for Hamei

I remember when the owner of the long-gone music store in my hometown decided to rap one day. Just imagine an aging white hippie, higher than ten of me have ever been, bashing rap with cliche lyrics and managing to hold a beat. "Yo yo yo wit da bitches and da hoes. The homies 'n na niggas and ...

Re: O2 locks up on install (SOLVED)

no, the processor is an r5200. I agree on the wiki, it took me some time of reading random threads on here regarding the o2 to figure out.
