Given how fast commodity clusters had already become by then, probably yes.

Irony is, Russia had a better chip anyway (Erebus2K), though it floundered in the end, bought out by SUN.

No - the export laws are there any very tough, it is an issue I come up against a lot (certain S/W, H/W I/O speed etc)...

Hmm... in the UK, I reckon simply being able to speak properly would be a better starting point. 8\


Anyway! Back to more cheery things. Any more upgrades planned for Iceberg?

In Australia it is illegal not to vote... so all the legally brain dead are forced to vote when they otherwise wouldn't bother ... which is why we have someone who eats their own ear wax during parliament sittings (its on youtube) when not mumbling gibberish and the lead singer of the rock group "Midnight Oil" ruining, I mean running, the country (into the ground).

Funny. We used to sneer at the Communist Bloc countries that did that.

From what I see of Ozztralians in China, seems that Ozz has gone a little strange ? :shock:

Back (sort of) on subject, is it possible to Numalink an O300 to an O350 ? Or does the serial number thingy prevent that ?

Nifty. There ya go, wreck. Numa that new arrival on top of the previous O300's and you've got a big-ass deskside for scientific computing :)

Not to beat on the same tired old dead horse but a pervasively multi-threaded web browser would be an ideal application both for us elderly SGI fanboyz AND the new multi-core operators.

WIsh that a thousand hearts and a thousand hands had even one functioning brain cell :(

Thought about it - but I'm not sure if IRIX would play nice when it found systems with InfinitePerformace and InfiniteReality graphics Numalinked together.

Not at the moment. Money is tight as I move on July 15, so I get to join the fantastic rent paying real world.

Upgrades I am looking in to eventually include a V12, (this is top priority as it would let me drive my displays at a decent resolution, but is also the least likely as it is the most expensive), getting a router and some O300s for fun, and getting a DM3 (mostly for completeness, although I am teaching myself Discreet software I really would have nothing to connect it to, my HD camcorder to Final Cut to Flame workflow is working well as is ).

There's the incentive for more eeprom investigation ! You probably have 99.5% of a V12 right now.

Nope - my V10 has only 32MB of RAM chips, and not 128MB like some other V10s that have been spotted. So converting mine would be quite an ordeal at best, and impossible at worst.

I'm still interested in investigating, though - I just don't have any of the required hardware, I can do software only.

This status can be viewed from the brick command, for example:

Code: Select all

rack: 001, slot: 01, partition: none, type: Rackmount WS [2MB flash], serial:NGLxxx, source: EEPROM
rack: 001, slot: 02, partition: none, type: Chimera Server [2MB flash], serial:NRTxxx, source: EEPROM
The L1 controller in my 'graphics added' O350 logs this at boot:

Code: Select all

06/10/09 10:57:08 L1 booting 1.34.8
06/10/09 10:57:08 ChiServ IP53
06/10/09 10:57:08 Checking for Type
06/10/09 10:57:08  - ChiBlade Type set
I'll try manually setting the system type and check again after the next boot or L1 reset.

Bump - as is detailed in the first post in this thread, recondas helped me find out that my theories regarding make rmws 1 and serial security were incorrect. make rmws 1 (and the Rackmount WS) type *do NOT* prevent the system from taking L2 serials - they just need a new prefix, the letter P instead of M.
The systems can then be NUMALinked to each other with matching P serial numbers.

So now I have a pretty Tezro Rackmount Workstation! :)

Does that mean that Tezro owners could choose the Onyx3 Infinite Performance supercomputer option ?
