Re: Best workstation to start with?

Here we have a case of people who have never owned or run any of this stuff giving advice. Great. Now that we're entering into a mud-slinging contest due to your snide remarks! My SGI machines are probably better examples than yours are physically speaking, and it's taken a great deal of effort fro...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

The nice thing about nekochan was that the people there used to know what they were talking about. Note the verb tense. I have the right to my opinion regarding this! The O2 might be a flimsy, little machine with little to no use today, but it certainly is an interesting little project to build up ...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

I realize that an R12K 400MHZ O2 is probably not really applicable for most as a first SGI machine... Disagree... it's a great cute little box. It's not the fastest Irix box but the fastest you can get is pretty pathetic so what's the point :) Also it has regular PS/2 and HD15 KDM ports, and a buil...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

I realize that an R12K 400MHZ O2 is probably not really applicable for most as a first SGI machine, but this machine is surprisingly fast! I would therefore recommend starting with an R10K model so that it can be upgraded to the R12K 400MHz model at a later stage. :D Here are some screenshots for m ...

I hope you win it!

It will be interesting to see what it's actual condition is and what it's specs are.

Re: Neat Tezro for sale in the US (No international shipping though)

Yeah, it is in Gilroy, just south of me. I'm currently the high bidder, though I doubt it will stay that way. Also, I just noticed the shipping more than doubled since I bid this morning :(. Hopefully they will let me do a local pickup if I win. If you are willing to bid to about the $950 mark then...

Congratulations! Thanks also for the pictures. Have fun with this configuration. Optional try to find the " V880 z " frontend covers for a more "authentic look". Thanks, its a pleasure! I don't plan on buying a whole herd of SUN machines and this is the machine that caught my ey...

Neat Tezro for sale in the US (No international shipping though)

There's a rather neat Tezro up for grabs in the US, it's a pity that the seller does't offer international shipping though! There's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SGI-CMN027-Silicon-Graphics-Tezro/152718322699?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 It looks to be a basic c...

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

Thanks for carrying out the test. :D

That's very interesting (being able to drag the mouse pointer between the displays, but not being able to drag anything else between the displays).

It probably has something to do with the cards having separate frame buffers and not scaling in an SLI type mode.

The SGI world is a rather small world! (If you've bought an SGI machine in the past, the person you bought it from is more than likely a member of Nekochan :D )

Re: Best workstation to start with?

I would say: Don't rush it, save for it if you need to, but in the mean time watch the bazaar on this forum as well as eBay to get a feel for what these systems go for.
