A very impressive job of arranging! And I love the fisheye view from outside the window...

Can you tell me what it says on the DEC masthead next to the |d|i|g|i|t|a|l| logo? I can't quite make it out, almost looks like "gamma11" to me. Just curious.


Thank you. It is actually a fisheye view from the inside of the window :)

Yes, it says gamma11, it is a version of RT11 specialized for some kind of visual x-ray application. I also have the PDP-11/34 with UNIBUS graphics (O_O). I'm unsure if I have gamma11, I got a lot of disk packs with the system, but have been unable to read them as of yet.

And, again, thanks for the 3130 signature icon!

Wow - how wide is that lens?

Nifty! Have you identified the UNIBUS graphics board yet? If it were Qbus I'd be wondering about Matrox, but for UNIBUS I've no clue.

Er - and if there's a different thread elsewhere, I'll take my questions there. Or else I'll have to make another icon to bring this back on-topic... :idea:

That VAX and PDP11 remind me of mine, I miss them :? I have some pictures in my environments gallery of them. What are you running on the VAX?

Trying to bring this back sortof on-topic... Here's a quick stab at a universal BA123 icon - typically seen with VAXstation and MicroVAX II's in them, but also used for MicroVAX 3's, MicroPDP-11's, etc. Image

Comparison: :Indy: :Cube: :Indigo: :PI: Image :Onyx:

Many different things appeared in the three exposed device bays, so it's unlikely this will look like any one particular example. This one's got an RX50 dual floppy in the left vertical position, TK50 tape in the top right, and a generic HDD faceplate below that. Within the limits of 16x25 pixels, anyway... Oh, and in a testament to the hard lives these things tended to lead, the door covering the drive protect/ready buttons on the bottom left is missing.

--S.

I think it is called VTV or VMV and is a digital product. I'm unsure If I have all boards unfortunately.

The Vax 11/750 needs repairs and the power supply scares the bejesus out of me. The microvax has both ultrix and vms installed.

Been noodling around with the Gimp again. DEC put several different CPU options into the BA213 Qbus cabinet, initially the MicroVAX III successor to the MVII in the BA123. The MicroVAX 3300 shipped in the BA215 with half the Qbus slots, but various board swaps were common.

BA213 can be the MV3/MVIII, MV3400, MV3500, or the MV3800
BA215 can be the MV3300

I'm not at all sure how that would work if these were ever to be added as smilies. And point in fact, I have no idea if Neko wants to have tons of non-SGI icons as smilies. But either way, enjoy.

BA123, BA215, BA213, and various SGI bits: :Indigo2: :O2: :Octane: :IRIS3130: Image Image Image :Onyx: :O2000R: :O3000:

Neat!

Nekonoko already put a few non-sgi things in the icon set, I'm sure he won't mind putting these classics there!

Yep; not a problem - I've added all the new icons to the database.

Thank you! Already in my signature. Soon there will be no space left for text :D

Well alright, thanks Nekonoko! Guess I won't hesitate if I get the urge to do some more, then...

Hate to be a spoilsport but the white does not show up at all well on the light blue background. Reminds me of that famous painting "Black Cat Sitting in a Coal Mine at Midnight." Would a single pixel of a darker color around the edges help ?

Yeah, I noticed this with the IRIS 3130 icon, and that's darker. But these cabinets were a pretty light cream color (before the sunlight got to 'em, anyway). I don't think an outline is going to look right. Any suggestions? Lots of gear that comes to mind is going to have the same issue...

Hmm, I did notice.. but I think we will have to live with it.

Just fine, I'm working on restoring some Amiga 500 and an Indigo 2 right now so it is not getting much attention. But it will come in handy when I need to read some RA disk. I'm hoping to save some data from RA82 disk which I will have to throw away afterwards... they are just _huge_

Here is my contribution, the PDP-8/e.

Also, I was wondering if I could use these icons on my own site? It's a great way to illustrate your collection.
