I feel you. I did 8km on Wednesday after 4 months without running and I thought my heart was coming out of my mouth.

AIX 7.1 on the IntelliStation 285 - first steps

Hello everyone, Sharing my first experiences. I've had this machine for 1,5 years by now, but only now I'm taking it more seriously, since I spent the first 6 months trying to make Linux boot in it and make it work as I wanted. Then, well, it became pointless since I don't use Linux as a workstation...

Re: Introducing myself - although I don't have any SGI machines yet

My IBM 285 Power[5] is the quietest, and I'm sure I've mentioned before that I have had to check the display status to see it's turned on. My 285 is quiet, but I definitely know it's on. It's a bit louder than the G5 Quad, but less annoying. There's some interference between the sound of the fans, ...

Re: $19.99 OSX Apple Server

Sorry, it dropped the r in sync. Thanks! I use rsync with my G5 (10.5 and 10.4) and my 10.11 Mac Mini and plus a bunch of all machines together with some cron stuff backing up to FreeNAS, and the Mini actually uses rsync to backup my Hyper-V machines (don't hate me) to a remote system and it all wo...

Re: Introducing myself - although I don't have any SGI machines yet

I switched fully to using SGI gear a year ago. My main system for day-to-day tasks. At first, I used a Tezro. To me, this seemed the ultimate in performance and daily-use however because they are rare and expensive.. I stopped using it. That and it does not seem to like hot environments as it gets ...

Re: $19.99 OSX Apple Server

Any of youz guyz ever use sync with OS X? I would like to backup the ReadyNAS 6's with sync to some of the Drobo devices. What exactly do you mean by sync? I googled around and it seems like a feature from ReadyNAS, but I don't see to clearly get your question. Why would you need OS X to backup Rea...

Re: Introducing myself - although I don't have any SGI machines yet

those are my special effects :D :D :D That sounds awesome! Do you have a picture of that? I've just browsed Ian's SGI Depot, there's plenty of information there. He has a huge collection! What do you think about this: 36 R12000 1 400 2MB 1024 2 36GB/15K V6 V1.4 Newer 375 [Octane2, blue] That's 375 ...

Re: Introducing myself - although I don't have any SGI machines yet

Thanks everybody! I was more curious on why that machine on eBay costs so much. Or the owner thinks it's that worthy... Because with the same money you can get a modern rig, if you are meant to earn your living from that it would make more sense. Perhaps it helps a bit if I explain my (masochistic) ...

Welcome. Good to see another Quaddie. Thank you for the browser. =) And thank you all for the warm welcome! I spent my whole day today going through the posts - I had to control myself a lot to not revive a lot of them! =) I'm quite proficient in Linux (I customize my kernel, get things running, ad...

Re: Dual Monitor IBM 285 GXT135P

I know it's weird but it's true, and confirmed by many IBM documents.
To use 1920x1200, like I'm using now, I need to go for VGA. On DVI it tops at 1280x1024@60Hz or 1600x1200@30Hz. I have no idea why.

Edit: The DVI limitation is there even if you have a single monitor connected.
