So.. finally after years and years my ex wife is clearing out the loft and actually returning some of my stuff bit by bit...

Today I received a boxed 1982 NEC Character Display (monitor) - I'll have to wait for the rest of that baby!!

A Sony MSX Hit Bit... still looks cool..

Fujitsu Siemens PPocket Loox.. no charger yet.. lol

HP Jornada with CISCO Wireless card... no charger yet ..

An Intel NetStructure 3110.. Don't recall buying that..

AND!!! An INDY!!! (1 of many in the loft, so can't recall the spec but memory looked full).

So after 10 or more years I turned it on..

Red Light
The Chime Chimed..
Green Light
Red Light
Green Light,....

Disk whirling nicely..
Network cable buzzing..

Unfortunately have no serial.. and can't recall the IP or even the range.. I suspect it's in the 192.168.x.x area.

So I'm scanning the network.. 10 mins left.. hopefully I will find something odd on the network.. SO EXCITED!!! 10 years or so.. I wonder what this baby was called.

Thought I'd add, I'm scanning 192.168.0.0

Question: If an INDY boots to maintenance mode.. is the front light still green?
Question: If an INDY boots to maintenance mode.. would there be loads of network activity?

Well congrats on recovering the goodies, and it sounds promising for the Indy. Hopefully some serial cables come next... ;)

Good to hear you're finally getting access to the goodies in the loft again.

I have the appropriate serial cable if you want to borrow it - can post it over to you (probably cheaper than driving!) :)

Thanks for the offer chicaneuk, I've now got a 13w3 adaptor coming.

BTW, I have OCTANE none working if you fancy it.. FOC. I'll keep one and get a PSU sometime in the future.

That's extremely kind of you to offer it as a freebie, but I'd feel guilty taking it off your hands for nothing so would insist on forcing some money your way. Will have a think about whether I want / need another Octane and give you a shout? :) Would be nice to have a green skinned original Octane to live alongside my blue Octane 2 though :D

Well I was thinking of your Octane - PC project.. I doubt I will be investing in bringing them back to life for some time now. Spent rather a bit of SGI stuff of late and it looks like I'll be getting my old stuff back over time, so these pair of beasties will no doubt go into storage if someone doesn't want them.
