Re: [eBay] Origin 200 in original box

Tempted by this one based on the fact that I can drive to get it. It is like thirty minutes away from me. How do you usually hook them up to the O2? I read about people using the o2 as the terminal for them. Basically my interest is in using the origin as extra drive space and extra procs for render...

Re: Smartphones

I've bought the iPhone SE just after its premiere this year. It was the first phone I've bought right after it's release. I've had for several years the 3GS from the company I work for and liked iOS, but unfortunately I've lost the phone in 2015. And the SE was the perfect deal - not as expensive a...

Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

Digital Domain and many LA based companies transitioned to Linux. Debian or a fedora based Distro. Later you mostly see CentOS distro support since Autodesk primarily develops Linux Maya with CentOS in mind and Vray and Renderman are also CentOS based in their linux flavor. Maya, Softimage, and Houd...

Re: Smartphones

I've had this iPhone 5s for a bit now. Verizon keeps sending me notices that I can upgrade. So I checked out the new sixes. None of them are as small as the 5. The four inch 5s is perfect for me. So then I was sent a notice about the iPhone 5-SE Same exact phone. Maybe slightly better camera and mor...

Re: Introduction - new Nekochan user in Netherlands

I often see spare R5k CPUs on ebay.

I'd definitely change CPU for better response.

There is an R5k 300mhz cpu for $170 US right now.

You can see performance comparisons between machines and CPUs here.

Re: [Craigslist SF] SGi Visual Workstation 320 $200

If I had been up there visiting my brother in Santa Rosa I totally would have drove down to pick it up.

I love the look of the VW320. If I remember correctly though, wasn't it a windows machine?
It didn't run Irix did it? Part of the reason I like SGI so much was that it wasn't windows or mac.

Re: My O2 video was popular here, and I promised a sequel, so here's my YouTube video on the SGI Octane.

Love your vids. :D

Makes me think we should do more community SGI related vids and have some 2016 front page blog entries about them. Showing the community alive and well.

Almost bought an SGI Octane a month ago. Worried it was too heavy and loud.

Re: 600Mhz O2 CPU

This is a tricky one for me. Looking at benchmarks I am not sure the modded @ 600Mhz r7k Proc gets you that much more power over the R12k 400hmz Proc. I was initially wanting this... even a faster one if possible. Yet when you check the benchmarks for rendering here. http://www.sgidepot.co.uk/blende...

Re: [eBay] Origin 200 in original box

Somewhere I have an origin200 door with the key still in it. I kept it from when Digital Domain closed our Venice offices. They said we couldn't take the old SGI computers even though many had been in boxes all dusty for years. Something about the Tezro's having numbers tied to Flame licenses still ...

Re: Craigslist LA -- 3x o2. 2x Octanes 1x Fuel all for $2K

Yeah, most SGI computers in or anywhere near Los Angeles were usually kitted out for video production.

Should be a bunch of great specimens around town probably gathering dust still.

I'm going to call him this weekend and try and grab one of the o2s.
