Awesome! Of 4 people that chimed in on the thread after forum creation, dexter1 is still active! :) So cool to read about his plumbing adventures :)

I remember coming on here when I was in high school(2005-ish) and reading the forums, don't think I ever got an account (if I did, I don't remember the username). Happy anniversary!

I signed on within a few days of buying my Octane (though I'd been using SGIs at work since the early 90's), and managed to completely bork my system and came here looking for help. The upshot: Never turn off your X Proxy Manager! :lol:

This site was recommended to me by Ian Mapleson, when I asked him for help regarding the what I then thought to be defective IR3 system in my Onyx2.

I haven’t been here for very long at all and it’s really great to see that there are members such as Dexter1 who were here at the beginning, who are still active. It’s very encouraging!

I really hope that Nekochan gets to see another good 15 years.

I'm not doing DIY plumbing anymore, rest assured, but after 15 years of admin service at the University i fortunately managed to save some machines that were present from the first day i signed up to this forum and are either with me or found a good home. It's because of all of you that SGI machines are still truckin'

Thank you

:D I see dodoid managed to dig out the oldest thread o' dem all!

Happy 15 years nekochan! 8-)

Going through our users list, sorted on join date, I'm glad to see that of those many folk who signed up in the two months and a week before I got my lazy arse over here (I was stubbornly communicating with Pete by email till then :lol: ), 15 were still visiting in the second half of 2017!

My respects go out to them and everyone else here for making this one of the greatest small places on the net!

"dig up" is a bit of an overstatement, really. You can just punch "nekonoko, sort ascending" into the search and it returns this.

I signed on within hours of borking my gentoo install on the octane :lol: and saw the Irix light.. although I don't think I actually set it up properly or started posting regularly until nearly a year later.
