It's seemed a little quiet on the hinv section for a while, so it seemed a good excuse to put up the details of my Indy. Another scrapper from work, this was absolutely barebones with a 100MHz CPU, 32MB RAM, 8 bit graphics and some extremely loud old drives measured in MB not GB :) It's duly received several upgrades to make it a bit more usable, and I also put in a 15K 146GB SCSI drive.

chicaneuk is that monitor SOG-OK or do you have a conversion device?

The monitor does indeed seem to be SOG and is connected up by a DIY cable a friend of mine made up for me :) The problem with the monitor is that the native res isn't supported on any of my kit (1680x1050).

Yup, had one exactly like that in my first real job ... did real work with it too.

I guess in it's defence, IRIX was a bit less bloated back then so probably booted and ran a bit quicker!

True, but it came with IRIX 5.1.x which leaked memory like nothing else so it had to be rebooted every couple of days. :(

With IRIX 5.3 it was perfectly usable, especially after we upgraded the memory with an extra 64MB. Of course, 'usable' was compared to a contemporary PC, usually a 486DX/2 running Windows 95 or OS/2 Warp.

I'd boot mine up in CDE every now and then, just from curiosity. As far as CDE experiences go, the SGI version was quite nice and snappy. I can't quite put my finger on any objective reason why this was the case, but CDE somehow felt smoother on an SGI machine than on Sun or AIX machines of similar vintage and power. It's easy to setup CDE and then switch back to the Irix Interactive Desktop when finished (just a matter of installing the CDE eoe and then setting/unsetting some chkconfig flags), so if you are at all curious, I suggest giving it a try.

That's for sure. Whenever I ran it, people would walk by and assume I was running a remote display. "Hey! How did you get those cool fonts in AIX?" :D

LOL! My only CDE systems right now are, indeed, my AIX boxes and my C8000. :)

The desktop you see is from a Power6 AIX CDE, I was telneted into the Indy.

...which makes the last few remarks by foetz and me even funnier. Well, at least to me. :D
