Oh man, that is a bummer.

I am working a gig in Santa Monica and the systems guy used to set up systems at locations for SGI and says he could setup a few things for me.

Houdini was one of the items on the list since they had setup the oldest license to work in Irix. :/

I think I'll write them and ask about a special case for Irix.

I know we have a strict policy here on Nekochan about software and licenses and I respect the site's needs greatly but as the years go on I am more concerned with preserving computer animation history than I am, or any software company, should be worried that somehow people pssobly getting a free ride on old machines and software. The software is still quite capable mind you... but at a far less capable pace than anything even offered for free at the current time. I couldn't get Pixar to even give me a piad for license of Renderman Artists tools. They said they have the files and everything but that they no longer have the ability to serve a license from there. No nodelocks. :/

Makes me realize my old install of RMS for Maya in windows xp64 is about as old as I'll ever get in Renderman history.
