Re: Tezro wanted

I was prepared to pay whatever price was required for the best shipping option available Frankly the typical ebay user (as well as the typical neko-user) does not want to pay for UPS because it's considered too expensive. It's a bit irritating, as it's irritating since you have to explain the same ...

does anyone happen to have a picture of the original packings?

does anyone happen to have a picture of the original packings used by SGI machines to sell their machines? I am interested ( curious anyway ) in what was written out of the box, I am interested in what was used to make the shipping safe. I have recently seen a software made by SGI which allows you t...

Re: Your first SGI encounter

SGI Indy, 2008, Erasmus. I spent a few months there, and I used their lab to acess internet. There was no wifi along the campus. Thus, I entered in a computer room and saw twelve pizza boxes. They were indy R4600, loaded with IRIX 6.4.something just to make people like me (Stranger) pretty uncomfort...

Because Scicence

So, Because Scicence is a funny YouTube serie. I watched a few episodes and thought to open here a resident office of "Because science" :D Some doubts came to mind, and to enter in my thoughts, a specific question comes to mind: how fast can we accelerate protons? Thus, I wanted to find a ...

Re: Octane2, 2x400MHz, 8GB, VPro V12

Super duper lucky - found the 8GB of RAM for $550 + tax on ebay. Thought it is unreasonably inflated. So, what it the point of putting money euro in 8GB of ram for Octane?
