Very nice! :D

I really appreciate the Mortise and tenon joints, you made use of in your shelf building project! (you don't see that traditional technique being made use of widely today, I like :D)

Confirm you're into traditional boatbuilding and repair?

Repair ? I figger we'll just rot away together :D

Nothing quite like a deetroit tho, I think. Unless it's a Triumph triple. Or a pack of unmuffled XR's at San Jose. Or a C-type. Or a Group 7 car ... or ... damn, there's a lot of good-sounding stuff out there :D

Oh, those are not my photos. He's okay tho. I'm more into metal. Hence the attraction for big-inch diesels.
hey friendly ! come outta there ! you're a cheap lousy dirty stinkin' mug and I'm glad what I done !

That's why I wish you'd left your other comment up, since I have to agree that society is unbalanced. Moms and Dads everywhere pushing their kids into web design or finance or drug counseling when creating a bookshelf or welding up a skyscraper takes as much or more skill and should be valued as much.

In fact, if skyscrapers were as badly built as most websites, most of us would never go into the city :shock: "in the news today, the SP building at one market had a 403 and fell across market street, crushing 237 pedestrians and jamming traffic for nine hours. At Lombard and Fulton, a 306 stopped traffic all afternoon as it is "deprecated" so no one could figure out where to go. Down in the tenderloin, johns looking for a whoah were discouraged to get a 417, while the fire department in the Marina was unable to fight a fire on Baker Street due to a 507 so two blocks of houses burned down."

If cars were this unreliable we'd walk ! :lol:

O2 FPA card, new in box :D

I'm the proud owner of a double headed SGI screwdriver! Bonus! :mrgreen:

And Spyro dug out the O2's psi cover, thanks much! I glued the clip back on but suspect it will break as soon as I try and put it on, so I'll just keep it in safe
storage.

I have that same o2 backplate with the tab glued back on. It is on the o2 though. The glue is holding for now since once it is snapped in there is no stress on the tab.

I picked up 5 of these from Spyro, 2 had defective backlights and one had a nasty pressure mark making the panel all but unusable. The other two are clean and work well.

I'll keep one to go with my O2 and if I can get the MLA fixed, pass the other panel and the MLA onto somebody from the forum for beer money and postage.

Read your blog post on your Talos, sounds interesting and fun. My kind of swimming up the stream with a middle finger pointing to the x86 tourists behind you!

That looks nice chap. Not a fan any more of the sw1600 myself, but they still look nice.

In fact, really funny, I keep giving them away and somehow seem to obtain more. :D

SGI hardware - it breeds like rabbits at night on horny goat weed! :mrgreen:

As soon as I get the O2 to a point I'm going to very carefully package it up and put in storage, it will come out again once I have room to have it out, but that's a few years away. I just don't have room for a laptop, MacPro and 2 SGI machines and 3 displays, not gonna happen.

My Octane is still my SGI machine of choice.

I'd be interested in the MLA if you choose to part with it.

Spent ten or so minutes looking for my IC extractor, apparently someone made off with it, hopped in my car and was at my handy local Ax Man in less than five minutes, $3.79 cents later and bazing! :P
