Old Silicon Graphics Computer Systems mouse pad

Unread postby pierocks » Thu Mar 02, 2017 11:51 am

Anybody have any idea what vintage this mousepad is? I permanently borrowed it from an old job over a decade ago. It was sitting on a desk with an Octane that was hooked up to an ImmersaDesk that hadn't been turned on in years. Every once in a while, I scan ebay for another one, just in case this one wears out...but I have never seen another one pop up.

Indigo2 IMPACT if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks. I don't ever recall there being any I2's around the department by the time I got there, but I believe you.

We did have a bunch of Indys that people used as monitor stands, an O2, the aforementioned Octane, an Onyx rack, and a lonely Challenge L deskside sitting unused in a corner in the basement. That O2 was actually the system that sparked my interest in SGI...
