Even the Tezro will not help you with WWW because the Firefox 3 is "too old" for many pages :-(

How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

I am curious how often people use their SGI workstations. As many of you has more than one computer it probably makes sense to think about the most used one. For example, I use my O2 as my main home computer from 2005 (when I have got it from Ian Mapleson :D ). But I'm spending less and less time wi...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I think we should just ignore him.
I tried to read the whole post on the reddit but I wasn't able to finish it. It so boring and it seems to be just a presentation of his personal (and very bizzare) view on things.

I'm not a very active member of this forum but I'm a happy and satisfied one.

Re: Your first SGI encounter

In 2001 when I started to work at the university. There still was a classroom full of Indys here (they aslo had a few Indigo 2s and a 15+ O2 but I never seen these). If I remember correctly they were the R5k machines. I have used the ANSYS.

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

My favourite SGI computer is the O2 with the R10k processor (and, of course, with the 1600SW screen). Actually, such machine is still my main home desktop (I use if for about 70% of my home computing).

But the Crimson is the best representation of the SGI, I think.

Re: Siemens Nixdorf RW 320 (Indigo R3k)

Yes, it is. There is no more space for expansion. Actually it's a very nice update: 3D stuff is much faster now. Visualization in the MeshTV were very slow withoiut the Z-buffer card and now are OK.

Fossil Wrist PDA version 2.0 - a smartwatch that runs near full version of the Palm OS 4.0. A funny thing, but very functional.

No it isn't. It's a different person with similar name.

Re: [FR Sold] Indigo R4K

Finally, I have find time to reseat all the parts and to start the machine (many of the things were out of their positions after the transport). It's surprisingly fast! It don't feel as a slower machine than my 175 MHz Indy. And the 1024x768 resolution is not that bad, too. Well, now I have both gen...

Re: your latest purchase

The Elektronika MK-90 Soviet portable computer.
Well, this particular one was manufactured in 1996 so it's not Soviet but it's Belarussian.
