So I was thinking when you first posted that you had bought the Indy to get the keyboard & Mouse for another SGI?
Do you have another SGI?
No, I got the keyboard because I wanted a PC style keyboard with cream dampened alps switches. I am a keyboard snob.

Yeah the hard drive selection seems to be either 1) something so ancient it's a miracle it still works, or 2) something much newer with a 10k rpm hard drive that will proably be way too hot for the Indy and could well sound like a fighter jet on takeoff. I'm considering springing for a scsi2sd adapter. It's not that much more expensive than a new hard drive and I won't need a cable adapter.
