Cool! I look forward to seeing your videos of you Origin and your Onyx. :D

I hope you get your Fuel and Onyx sorted soon.

Keep the videos coming!

I'll pop a couple of pics up in due course, but right now my Fuel has been temporarily popped into the cupboard whilst I set up and commission the replacement for my main PC. Hence the only SGI currently plugged in is my Indigo2, and my room is a bit of a mess with cables everywhere and a PC under the desk with most of its skins missing. :)

The first pic is an old one that shows roughly half the systems in my collection. The second pic is more recent and shows everything packed away in storage, where it will stay until I have a place with enough room to hold it. Not shown are my Crimson, teal I2, Mac Plus & 512K, and a bunch of old PCs and laptops.

I think I've seen that first pic before. I once used to show the relative sizes of SGIs to a friend of mine, if I remember correctly. His response was "the Onyx is HUGE!".

I now own an Onyx. Can confirm, is huge.

Hmm, I never thought that. Although it could be because the first Onyx I saw was the full-blown rackmount version. Now that was properly big!

Wait until you spot a tall rack Onyx :)

I used to have a deskside O2K sitting next to my Onyx2. I thought it might be (floor)space efficient to replace both deskside with a tall rack Onyx2 and effectively "stack" them. Looked up the dimensions of an Onyx2 rack and realized it occupies more floor space than both desksides combined. And at 2m tall it doesn't exactly fit under a desk. Quickly gave up on that idea :lol:

I have added some "signature" pics of various SGI's and macs, as well as some other machines, at the beginning of this thread.

feel free to use them in your signature if you want. (Thats what they're there for) :D

I will be very happy to add pics of other machines on request, so that they match the format of the pics that I've already posted, if anyone's interested.

redbox and bluebox.

redbox isn't seeing much action these days, but bluebox has just had its PSU fan replaced and is now whisper quiet. It's getting daily use. Behind bluebox, there's a pile of O2 parts and my spare 600Mhz Fuel which donated its working PSU to redbox a while back.

Would I be correct in presuming that the reason why bluebox is seeing more action than redbox is that bluebox runs much more quietly than redbox?

@josehill - actually I had been using bluebox more and more before its fan replacement surgery. Basically the Fuel is a bit of a white elephant. These days it's too slow for any real work, it lacks the charm of the older SGI machines, and yes, it's loud. While it's true that the O2 is older and much slower, at the same time it's quirky and there's something special about it. I find it much more fun to use.

With a good fan replacement, the Fuel can become a quiet system too. Mine is quieter than my fan-modded Indigo2, although admittedly not as quiet as my Nocturna O2. I mainly use my Fuel for compiling, seeing as it's so much quicker than my Indigo2.
