I'm not too happy (not happy at all actually!) with the curvature/perspective of the text, but that'll do for now (at least it's using the sgi logotype!). Also, the Fuel red looks pretty darn nice on the O2 (AKA the Redneck O2)...

This one rocks!!!
:shock: :shock: :shock:

Looks like I've wanted!!!
My positive votes! ;)

P.S.> We could try to get an intermediate red color, between the RageX version (slightly too brightness for me), and the UnixMuseum version (slightly too mate for me)... :roll:

Reconsideration 1 :)

...definitively; the logos from UnixMuseum looks perfect to my opinion, and the composition with PartixFX on the TFT display is perfect! :D

I could double my positive votes, then!!! :lol:

Reconsideration 2 :)

...I'll post it as website main page on the PartixFX current site, as soon as UnixMuseum can authorize the use on these one! ;)

Suggestion :)

CVisual, MainframeA.I. and TheMacOSXFlies are working currently on the new official website implementation; I have REALLY GREAT samples of the work that they can do; but I don't like burn it by now showing their works before the site launch!!! :D

MainframeA.I. is doing the official PDF stuff too (brochures, etc...), and TheMacOSXFlies is collaborating/designing very closely with him... CVisual was on the hosting matters, etc...

All this is completely amazing. A lot of people doing very nice works here!; Nekochan.Net rocks!!! 8)

Cheers! ;)

Hi Cory5412! ;)

I think it looks good!; but possibly you could find useful talk with MainframeA.I. (Martin), and TheMacOSXFlies (Angel), to keep in sync with their developments! They are with a really elegant design line that we could use to give to all an homogeneous look.

In fact; if all goes well, and by example, Chicago-Joe finds a way to make easier the O2 upgrades to 600MHZ processors and beyond, and he's really ready to accept incoming proc-upgrade jobs, I could enable in Argentine a "SGI's Customization Service" through the GeneratriX new site, just to accept incoming works from the Argentinean base of SGI O2 users (that exists too!) for the Re-Painting, Re-Print-Of-Neko-Logos, and of course Processors-Upgrading... Or just sending those old parts to anyone else (Timberoz? :)) to get the "New Kit - Ready To Go" :D ...Sounds good!

The facts are depending of many factors: costs, possibility of get ready the painting jobs from local Argentinean companies, and of course, the two first things: Chicago-Joe's (owner of upgrade the method) and Nekonoko (owner of the Neko's name!) last words! ;)

So; as you can see: "The Fat Lady Is Not Singing Even!" :lol: ...or something like that, I don't know too much english! :lol:

Sorry, but that's just balderdash - regardless of the UI front end, the back end is multiuser - tasks don't just run, but they run as someone.

Indeed NT has always been multi-user, I actually kinda like Windows2003 from having to work with it. ain't too bad when it comes to Windows in general

We could always give it a codename like "Ozone" after all Ozone is chemically O3 (three atoms of oxygen bonded)

Either Ozone, or sugar (C6H12O6) would make a great demo too, visualizing a sugar molecule. (Glucose, IIRC.)

Ozone would, however... be a great name for a laser printer. ;)

Windows/IE behaves itself quite nicely under the following environment:

If you have high-speed, stay hidden behind a router. If not, try the free ZoneAlert from Zonelabs as a firewall.

http://www.zonelabs.com/ ('ZoneAlarm' is the free version)

Run "Spybot Search and Destroy" often, it's freeware! and removes almost everything nasty. On-line update tools and everything.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Run Ad Aware (freeware version is fine), though much less important if you're checking with Spybot. On-line update tools too.

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

Vitally important! Run 'The Proxomitron' as a local proxy - it rewrites web pages on the fly removing most offending things from them, including ads. Fully configurable if you're into that sort of thing. Also freeware!

http://www.proxomitron.info/

Don't be stupid and open up attachments from faux-Viagra companies, or "Message Undeliverable" messages from E-mail addresses you've never heard of. ("Who the eff is mailto:'yomama@wazzahamster.net'??!")

Set Windows to show all filetypes, so you don't let those 'Goodstuff.zip.dat' files slip past ya...


You do all of these things, and Windows/IE is really pretty worry free and tolerable. Note that I didn't mention anywhere about virus scanners - if you hide behind all of this stuff you really don't need them. Virus scanners are good for relatives though, they don't mind paying money every year for 'subscriptions'. In fact all of this stuff is good for relatives, of which we all have, and only really know you as "That cousin who knows computers"...

As for the O2, I *really* like the name Ozone

Anybody got a nice cache-o-skins? Almost every O2 I've run across has suffered the ravages of time/truck/cracks/brittleless/palletization and other assorted skin problems. Get someone to paint them up nice, with a good durable paint and a bit of silk screening, and I think you'd have some takers.

DD, I can tell you've never had to supervise a network of nitwits. I don't have any problems. They on the other hand, manage to find every fricking piece of crap under the sun. And we've got more crap here than you can shake a stick at. I'm trying to avoid having to go around to every single computer weekly and spend an hour cleaning off the stinking garbage. I have no idea how the people who run CoolWebsearch manage to avoid castration, but if they ever come to my neighborhood they're gonna find themselves floating face-down in the Huangpu.

I'm just gonna cut the nitwits off from the Web instead, I think. Cisco switch = mmmm-good :)

btw, if one thinks NT is multi-user one also thinks VFAT supports long file names. I mean yeah, in a way, but ......

The red and gold NekO2 look awesome! Strangely enough I will be repainting some Indigo 2's purple and fuelish red soon after the first of the year at work after completing some case modifications. There's no reason to have a "hot" SGI with a mediocre exterior now is there?

Any kind of graphics and/or design stencil can be made with a graphics plotter and then transferred to any surface to be painted and/or airbrushed on. The sky is the limit and only limited by your imagination. Richard
