I find it cool that Mainframe Entertainment got a part in that video. I always wondered why the feel to ReBoot changed midway through season 2 and I guess it was because they started transitioning over to PC's for all their work and their rendering.

A bit less cool that they had to slag off SGI with all the throwing of meaningless ‘company man’ jargon, whilst still big on SGI...

bah! save your passion for better things. why worry about the typical "business" 5 year old pissing contest between 2 logos?

I remember how amazed I was at how speedy the O2 was back then...

brand names, logos and other subjective preferences aside, do you also remember the feeling?

i mean, we would just sit in front of a computer and we would start working on it. we wouldn't care much about numbers. and it would take some time to "render"/output our final work. so what? no one ever died and some really decent work(s) came out.

sounds interesting, you can make the best of sweetspots or favour one and drop the other but choice is there :)

As for my preference and passion for MIPS/IRIX, well, is there anything with the same nowadays?

uhmm dunno, your passion comes from you, only you can find out what fits your taste/needs.

i guess that the (feeling) word i picked a few posts up was wrong. i mean that everything gets to be whatever you treat it to.

a few years ago all this was kinda exotic. we would sit down to work with computers and then go home or to a bar. now we have a bunch of computers in every form/size and we're talking numbers more than just using them. glut ruins the kicks we used to get. fan noise too, most likely.

Even the so-called “Linux advantage” that was promised to IFFFS customers doesn't even come close to what IRIX used to and still provides.

why give 2 funks about sales talk?

i bet that most sgi hw will end up to nekochan members, so you can still run your ifffs setup on irix and shift your passion to your design technique/ideas or to that blonde/brunette/whatever across the bar :)

would you be unhappy if you'd work w/ a linux-based ifffs @work and an irix-based one @home?

btw, the typical ifffs customers circle does not include anyone who can get a rack of equipment for $50 and put it in his bedroom.

(blame kbrd fro all typos)
