Re: Best workstation to start with?

Although the rack systems have zero cool factor, you get quad 700Mhz, 2 drive bays, DVD drive, a couple PCI slots and V10 for about what an Octane costs. O350 parts are still cheap as well. If you stand it on it's side next to your desk the noise isn't bad at all. This is what my primary SGI system ...

Nope that is about 35 feet of 220v extension cord from my welder. Comes in handy for welding out in the driveway or running the IR4 in the Kitchen. :lol:

Re: Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

It may be possible to move the windows using Desks Overview instead of dragging directly. When I read this I think "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" My ability to actually use an SGI system is not real strong and I am sure there are several things that...

Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

Hey Guys, Over the weekend I was able to do some testing on the different rack graphics systems. I will edit and add items as time permits. I know recondas will get me for not capturing the UV PROM boot :oops: I forgot but will get it posted. The question of installing a DM3 in a second compute chas...

Re: Nicest Tezro I've seen on (EBAY) plus more (not mine)

Yeah I thought it would sell before I could be ready to buy. Ah well, no worries. I would start those Maya/Softimage tuts but I still need to get Perl successfully installed on my o2 because the desktop capture program I am trying to install wont install because it says it is missing perl. I have a...

I have all of this hardware on hand (with the exception of a router brick) and will try a few combinations this weekend to see what works together.

Re: Help with Tezro

Remove the node board and reseat it, see if this helps, as these machines don't really like being moved around. I am glad you got it running! On a side note... It is very rarely an "unseated" node board and the only reason I am commenting on this is to discourage people from pulling node ...

Re: Origin 3200 Console Access

The DS1780 is an environment monitoring chip, same chip that is a nuisance in the Fuel systems. You should be able to disable this in the L1 just to get it going. I believe it is "ENV OFF" but check the docs for that system.

Re: My first Octane

I wouldn't pull the graphics board unless you need to. Get it tested first. I can send you a bootable drive and graphics cable cheap to get you going.

What graphics do you have?

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

At any given time in my house there will be 5-7 SGIs running and granted most are doing nothing but the screensaver but they are alive. Any graphics station will have my kid or one of his friends playing the demo games. It is fun to watch them pass the xbox one and go play cycles or doom. I have my ...

Where do you put that fscking thing? It's bigger than the woman in the pic!!

You put a pillow on it and use it as a stool.



Too big to put on a desk, to beautiful to put underneath :D
