Re: Your first SGI encounter

In 2001 when I started to work at the university. There still was a classroom full of Indys here (they aslo had a few Indigo 2s and a 15+ O2 but I never seen these). If I remember correctly they were the R5k machines. I have used the ANSYS.

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

My favourite SGI computer is the O2 with the R10k processor (and, of course, with the 1600SW screen). Actually, such machine is still my main home desktop (I use if for about 70% of my home computing).

But the Crimson is the best representation of the SGI, I think.

Re: Siemens Nixdorf RW 320 (Indigo R3k)

Yes, it is. There is no more space for expansion. Actually it's a very nice update: 3D stuff is much faster now. Visualization in the MeshTV were very slow withoiut the Z-buffer card and now are OK.

Re: your latest purchase

Fossil Wrist PDA version 2.0 - a smartwatch that runs near full version of the Palm OS 4.0. A funny thing, but very functional.

Re: Bytefest and vintage collection

No it isn't. It's a different person with similar name.

But Bytefest is always great.

Re: [FR Sold] Indigo R4K

Finally, I have find time to reseat all the parts and to start the machine (many of the things were out of their positions after the transport). It's surprisingly fast! It don't feel as a slower machine than my 175 MHz Indy. And the 1024x768 resolution is not that bad, too. Well, now I have both gen...

The Elektronika MK-90 Soviet portable computer.
Well, this particular one was manufactured in 1996 so it's not Soviet but it's Belarussian.

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

The Palm Foleo, the Kyocera QCP-6035 and the Siemens-Nixdorf's variation of the Indy.

And yes, the CM-2 would be nice for me, too ;-)

Re: Siemens Nixdorf RW 320 (Indigo R3k)

The white SNI-labelled Indy is really interesting! Thank you very much for the picture!
