Cool! iFixit has an Onyx teardown that I used when going to get my Onyx, you could consider posting the pics if you have the time.

Re: A snapshot of what you've got.

Among the SGIs, probably the Origin since it's right under my main desk and connected to my desktop via a serial port, or the Octane in the basement. The Origin will be getting a video on my channel soon, as will the Onyx once it works. I will have to experiment to find out how to film such enormous...

Would maybe also take 4 for my O2K, would want to find out if they're still around and what the shipping costs.

Re: SGI Espressigo

I would start drinking coffee if it came out of an Indigo :) . I imagine the cost of shipping to Canada is even greater than that of a regular Indigo however, on account of the extra padding for (what looks like) a more fragile case (less stuff in it, looks like the Gaggia is held in place with foam...

Re: your latest purchase

Wow, I've wanted a Freerunner for a long time now. That OsmocomBB compatible Calypso GSM chipset is the star of the show. Is there another one for sale anywhere? I actually don't think I ever set up an ebay watch for the search.

You definitely don't have to agree with them or support their existence, and you're not alone if you don't, but that is not justification for a polic...

Re: I've Had It With Firefox - Alternatives I'm Exploring

I've never understood the appeal of RiseUp. I have one or two friends who use it, and I guess I can see why from a privacy point of view, but if you want privacy in your emails, end to end encryption with something like ProtonMail (my personal favorite) or even just regular GPG on standard emails is...
