I finally got my the big green money pit running, kinda. I forgot my 13w3 -> VGA adapter, so I cannot test VGA, but I managed to get it up on the terminal.

Tests passed with nothing more than a missing keyboard error. I dropped to the command monitor to try hinv, but for some reason my serial to usb adapter stopped working. I suspect it was because Mac OSX 10.12 does not support it well. I will need to try again later with the VGA cable (Octane -> michaelpastras SGI2VGA adapter -> VGA cable -> VGA2HDMI -> HDMI cable -> Dell 30" monitor... yeah, nothing can go wrong here).
