Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Will provide update when box lands in Australia (in one piece ... keeping fingers crossed) I sincerely hope for you they don't toss it in a box with some bubble wrap or foam peanuts. A Tezro weighs close to 30kg, which is the upper limit of what you can send by regular shipping (post office). And p...

Re: Mac Pro 2013

If you consider that most of the people who were in the market for one at the time of it's release, more than likely bought one at that time, it would make absolutely no sense for them to need to buy a new one for at least the next 3 years. The 2nd hand asking prices for 2010 era Mac Pro's are stil...

Indy badges?

Here's a question about the badges on the case of the Indy. First, here's what the original Indy (R4x00) looked like: indy-r4000.jpg The R5000 Indy looks a little different. The cube logo badge has been moved down, the "Indy" text has been moved to the left to make space for an R5000 badge...

Nice!

Otherwise, beware that by placing it on it's side you've blocked the air intake of the graphics side of that Indigo2. That's not going to end well.

It's possible to hack an X-brick : viewtopic.php?t=16721935

But it's certainly not for the faint of heart.

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Auction has been updated with (presumably) photos of the actual system. And while Hombre linked ebay.de, it's located in the north of France and also on eBay.fr: http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Ordinateur-Vintage-SGI-Silicon-Graphics-Tezro-CMN-027-Double-Disque-Dur-/172863004983 Looks like an old Discreet sy...

Re: Help needed with a FORE Systems VMA-200

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

I just wish we had a friggin browser that worked.... I don't think my coding skills will ever be good enough to tackle that. Even the Tezro will not help you with WWW because the Firefox 3 is "too old" for many pages :-( That's why I dream of a completely new and lightweight web browser. ...

Re: IRIX Source code

what would really be useful would be the source code to MIPSPro ? MIPSpro was more or less open sourced! Well, that means they yanked out all those pesky old MIPS bits, bolted on a shiny IA64 back end, and replaced the front end (licensed from EDG compiler group) and replaced it with GCC equivalent...

Re: BASH the SGI font logo

I prefer the bug logo, but not enough to put an "old" skin on an Onyx2 that was a late enough model to come with the homer logo.

I also prefer the old, mechanical 'slab' keyboards.
