Re: your latest purchase

What I am suggesting is that the clean image from Microsoft or Apple already contains a decent amount of privacy-invasive online data collection software.

Re: your latest purchase

Your Razer came with Windows and its telemetry and cloud integration, and your MacBook Pro came with iCloud, though the spying is much more optional in the case of the Mac. I agree about the stupid input devices on Lenovos of a few years ago, I'm just saying they've improved now, that's all. Here's ...

Re: your latest purchase

They got rid of the touchstrip and the fake trackpoint buttons, and many users, myself included, and don't care about the trackpad when there's a TrackPoint available. The spyware is sucky, but if you expect the factory installed software on a laptop not to include spyware from either the manufactur...

Re: Dodoid Mini Indigo is now on sale!

I posted an update about the Mini Indigo over in the thread in SGI: Discussion. Essentially, the Raspberry Pi 3 is no longer offered as a pre-installed option (of course, the ODROID-XU4 is still available), but can be installed aftermarket if you so desire, and the website now supports coupon codes....

Re: Project Update Thread: Miniature Indigos

Time for another quick update on the product. First off, let's talk SBCs. Since the launch of the Mini Indigo, I have shipped many units with both the ODROID-XU4 and with no SBC. However, to date, not a single order including a Raspberry Pi 3 has been placed. This is likely due to the Pi's lack of a...

Re: your latest purchase

If 7 doesn't work out, how about Windows 10 LTSB? That's all I freakin' need, man. Do note that it has now been confirmed that the ThinkPad 25 will contain the same 16:9 1920x1080 touchscreen seen in the T470. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-25-New-specs-and-pictures-of-the-Retro-Think...

Re: Mini-PC fit in an SGI hard drive bay?

I am considering making a PCI card made out of a network card and an ODROID-XU4S, with a 3D printed cooling shroud. That would allow for similar functionality in an even easier package. With some nice software integration, it could be a "drop in and go" solution for modern software on your...

Re: My first Octane

Hmm... picture? I would consider dremeling the top and then removing it with a flathead, but you may damage the plastic "handle" around the screw.

Re: WTB : SGI compliant female 13W3 to male VGA cable (short length OK)

I don't have an adapter to sell you, but holy crap, a 100ft 13w3 cable??? Was it intended for having an Onyx rack in a server room and monitor at a desk or something? Were the keyboard and mouse also extended to that length? I didn't know such a thing even existed.

That would be R4000 architecture, not the R3000 he says he's having problems with.

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

What about an O2 under the bed and a projector onto the ceiling :D ? You could use one of those pocket size wireless keyboard+trackpad combos designed for home theaters.

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

My Origin2000 and Onyx are in my bedroom, under my desk. Right now the Fuel is also in there, in one of my "roughly ATX sized" tower piles. Then there's the bedside O2: 2017-09-06 22.47.04.jpg 2017-09-06 22.48.05.jpg I usually keep a good array of computer stuff next to my bed (the dock fo...

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Fun fact: during the the filming of Jurassic Park, the Crimson was having 30 pictures of it taken every second, causing it to often warp into a PowerSeries. Because of this limitation, "it's a UNIX system" is thought to be the most expensive to shoot scene in the entire film.

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Ahh, I hate when my computer turns into a different computer halfway through taking pictures of it! Either that, or the computer is actually a chain of multiple SGI products moving through 4D space, and the Tezro moved out of our plane before the third picture could be taken. If an Indycam cable com...
