I have posted hinvs for both machines.

strong_epoxy, it's a Sony a6000 with either the 16-50mm kit lens or Canon FDn 35mm f2. The kit lens is not the greatest but most of these were shot on a tripod which let me work at f8 and beyond where that lens does just fine.

Alright, it's clear I have a problem. :lol:
I recently acquired mopar's very nice Octane2: dual 600 R14k, dual head and dual channel V12, 3.5GB of RAM, two 73GB 15,000rpm drives, PCI cardcage with a couple of fibre channel cards. I will get around to posting a proper hinv for it. I'm really curious where it originally came from and what type of work was done on it.

I also found a great deal on a new-in-box 1600sw and MLA for $100 on ebay. It was a local seller, 5 minutes from my work. :shock:
Very nice guy and he told me he used to work at Bell Labs where they did "simulation and model development for education" on Octanes.
Also, thank you to recondas, 3dchris and Jack Luminous for their efforts in making the Octane2/1600sw combo workable.

That's a beaut! :D

Mopar didn't have any provenance as to where it came from? If anyone's looking to buy I believe he still has a ton of good stuff available... 8-)

Thanks. :)

And you know, I haven't asked mopar about the machine's origin, maybe he'll chime in.
