I know a place in Brazil (Belanova, you can find the address at my site, in the article about SGI keyboards: http://tabalabs.com.br). that has the keyboard/mouse set for R$ 10 (!!!) but you have to talk to Yanke to get it in the deposit, they don't have it on the shop.

About the adapter, this seems to be an useful project for people outside US/UK/Europe, where everything computer is easy to buy. I hope to expand it someday for USB input. At least optical mice are still easy to be found in the USB version.

Nice to know someone else speaks portuguese here. BTW it would be nice to know who are in Brazil, and maybe set a meeting somewhere.

Don't know if this fits in here, but since it has SPARC inside I think it does.

Just got a Fujitsu Primepower 250 (quite difficult to find where I live) :D

Specs:

1*1,1 GHz SPARC64 V CPU
2*72 GB HDD
2 GB memory
some sorta gfx

This one is beautiful but despite its small form factor even a little bit noisier than my F280R

HI there!

We with my pal own commonly tons of sparcs.
O.T.: where to get and how to use small non-sgi bbcode-style machine symbolic graphics in comments and signatures? (Want sun, mac68k, macppc symbols)

I think they were created by a user here. Since this is originally an SGI forum those were most of the icons that were made, I think that the MicroVAX and NeXT Cube were by special request.

Sun Ultra 5. Used to have an Ultra 10 too, but it was dead when I got it, so eventually after trying on and off for years to get it working, I scrapped it and threw the rest out.

Just a Sun Ultra-3 laptop, which works great, even though it will cook testicles into meatballs if you use it on your lap.

The Solbourne S3000 probably qualifies, but it's sick and won't boot. :(

I have 2 SPARCstation 5s, one running the RISC port of NextStep 3.3 on a 110 Mhz MicroSparc and the other is running LuBu OpenMagic on top of Solaris 7 on a 170 MHz TurboSparc. The 110 Mhz box used to be a Kodak photo kiosk which I turned back to a regular workstation. It has the "Kodak Digital Processor" logo on the front of it. Also have a few Sunblade 1500 workstations (UltraSPARC 3i processors) with an assortment of graphic cards.On the server side I'm running a couple of SUN T2000 servers, one headless and the other running with an XVR-200 graphics card. They both have the T1 8 core processor and they are both running Solaris 10. The oldest SUN I have is a SUN IPX in a SUN IPC case. But I hardly ever have the time to play with any of them much anymore.

These servers show up super cheap on eBay. I have this crazy idea of making one fit in a normal ATX case. It would involve a lot of metal work and faking all the fan signals. Are there any cheap PC video cards that will run under Solaris these days?

I don't know if you were asking about Solaris Intel or Solaris SPARC.

The only graphic options that I know of for the SUN T2000 are the XVR-200 and the XVR-300. The XVR-200 is a 1 lane PCI-e and the XVR-300 is an 8 lane PCI-e. The 300's go for about $200 and more so they are definitely not cheap. They use the ATI FireMV graphics engine and have 128 MB of video RAM and can drive two monitors. The 200's go for less since they are just 1 lane and 32 MB of RAM but can still be high. Luckily, one of mine came with a 200. I couldn't see paying the premium price for a 300.

SUN boxes need SUN cards in order to function with the OpenBoot firmware so standard PC cards won't work unless your going to install Solaris 10 on an Intel platform. If your going to run other SUN hardware like one of the more recent SunBlade machines (1500 or 2500 Red or Silver) then you can find cheaper cards on e**y like the XVR-100 or XVR-600 or even a PGX64. You can get these for $20.00 - $40.00 or so.

If your going the Intel route, I would check which video cards are supported on the Intel hardware compatibility list. What server board were you looking to use in an ATX case? That should be interesting.

Should have been more specific, the T1000 or T2000 based servers.

I ran a Sunfire V245 for a while in my basement but couldn't justify the noise or power draw (300 watts). Eventually I gave it away. But anyhow I got a good look at the insides and power supplies. Other than physically getting the motherboard inside the case I believe its doable. Now this is all just a crazy idea of mine and nothing is definite.

Is the T2000 faster than the Blade 2500? It would be pretty sweet to own the world's fastest unofficial SPARC desktop :D
