Did one of your Acclaim Indys include the N64 development board? I wish! Looks like several had the boards installed a...

Re: SGI Indy YouTube Video - Silicon Classics #7

Thanks, I think my stuff is not quite up to LGR standards but I'm trying. Some decent tunes would probably help a lot. Bought a boxed set of royalty-free music to lay down in the background but most of the songs sounded like elevator music or 1990s corporate training video junk so I left it out.

SGI Indy YouTube Video - Silicon Classics #7

Finally finished that YouTube retro-review of the Indy that I've been working on since the winter. Hopefully even seasoned experts on the blue pizza box will discover some previously unknown facts & photos of the Indy in this episode. PS - With apologies to Goldbug for using his sig full of SGI ...

Re: Your first SGI encounter

In 1995, the summer before my senior year of high school, I was enrolled in an internship at Brookhaven National Labs on Long Island. I was supposed to be learning HTML code for this newfangled thing called the World Wide Web but I was more interested in driving powerlaps around the RHIC particle ac...

Re: FS: Boxed Indy R5K

I picked this up a week ago and thanks to coolfox it survived the trip from CA to NY in great condition. SGI Indy R5000 WebForce.jpg He even included some bonus software and the box had a granite CD-ROM drive, SCSI cables, etc. (I already had the Indyballs). I'll be including footage of this in my u...

Re: IRIS Vision

Been wanting one of these cards for years. Apparently they included a driver for 3D Studio for DOS. Would be really cool to see hardware 3D acceleration in 3ds4, even if it's just gouraud shaded.
