Re: Gliding / Glider simulator

There was a version of FlightGear available long time ago for Irix, which I didn't run for ages. I don't know if a newer version could be compiled, though.
Have a look there: http://home.flightgear.org

Good catch JJ ! @Hombre71: You should browse http://www.bolo.ch, were you'll find information about the museum (machines are exposed in a building of the Swiss federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne) and the Association which takes care of collecting, restoring and preparing the machines.

Re: Can you identify this machine?

Looks like the first SGI I owned, yeeeeaaars ago. It was, as the others mentioned, a Professional Iris 4D/70 GT. I gave it to the Bolo Computer Museum, in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was heavy, loud, slow, but I miss it a bit now...

If you can find it quickly, why not. That would be helpful to see your modification, not only for me, but also as reference.
And probably it will motivate me doing it ;)

It looks similar, but you should know it's much deeper and heavier !

Hi jmc,

Where are you located in Germany. I'm in Switzerland and may consider the trip... specially since I often go to Germany for business.

Nice work j-j ! I know it too much as well how fragile these plastics are. Not only the door's hinges but also the feet. There are 4 small hollow "tubes" that go through the metal chassis. As soon as you try lifting the O200, you take a risk. If you don't lift the O200 vertically, but tilt...

Indigo TOD clock replacment hack

Some weeks ago, I've ordered memory modules from Ian for my Indigo . Unfortunately, once I have installed them, it refused to power up again... "can't set tod clock", grrrr ! According to the wiki , the R4k100 was first introduced in 1992... 24 years, not so bad for a battery ! Read some i...

Re: [EBAY] large collection (Germany)

Wow, I'd be interested as well, specially since it's close to where my headquarter is. But then, how to bring them back home ? I'm not sure I can fit them all in my cabin luggage ;-)

Maybe I'll go there and have a look

Re: FS: 64MB/128MB RAM kits for Indy, etc.

Hi Ian,

I was looking for SIMMs for my Indigo on your website yesterday... so yes, I'm interested in
128MB RAM kit (4x 32MB identical SIMMs, gold edge): 25 UKP (Kingston PN KSG-128/R40)

and one kit of 64MB. Actually I'm missing an Indy cam, too.

PM ?
