Re: "New" SGI logo?

New logo is an apple type logo. There's an app for it. Create your shape/letters then apply an oval type non-shadow.

Floppy Drive Option UPSIDE DOWN!!!

Is this normal? The drive cannot be the right way up. I have tried removing and refitting it in the caddy but it just doesn't fit?

Re: Octane 2

Vishnu, no I did nothing special, it just worked... until now... I've been playing with xsetmon and have now managed to set my displays out of range.
I can telnet in but setmon can not configure, anyone know how to set it all back to 1280x1024? looking for a config file I suppose?

Re: Octane 2

The 285 is under the desk.. I got it from an ex-westland Designer who needed a key for catia.

Re: Extracting Nekoware

Hi, just found this site, excellent it is too. I've owned SGI's for years and years now, and I have a load of them in my ex's loft and only have my o2 at the moment.
