Previous life - teaching EE and IT at technical college and high school levels. Current life - playing with fire on water cooled big iron... designing residential heating control systems with renewable energy sources (sun and wood), writing programs for the UVR1611 programmable logic controller from Technische Alternative (ta.co.at).

I am an official tax consultant (german law) working for one of the "big four" audit firms. Also, I usually wear a suit and a tie because of that.

I agree with [[C|-|E]], where do you put all those machines? Do you have a data center or possibly a basement lab?

To make things worse I also have a decent stack of "early 90s" Sun, DEC and IBM PS/2 gear. Plus there is also quite a large stack of SGI spares.

In my flat I "only" have 2 Octanes, 1 Fuel, 3 Indigos, 5 Indigo 2, 2 O2 and 5 Indys. The rest is either in my or my parents basement. This leaves me with two problems. My basement is 80-90% full and my parents want the old junk out of their house. This is currently year 6 or 7 in this situation, which is not good since some great stuff has been stacked away in either basement since I left university.

Moving into something larger would be nice. Actually I alone and my stuff could use a home suitable for a 2-3 children family. ;-)

I don't think you're the only Nekochanner who can say that... ;)

I am currently IT-Manager at the local subsidary of a Danish pharmaceutial company.

I got my first hands on contact with SGI machines at my last employer, an oil and gas upstream company.

Having babysat Sun boxen at Uni in the late 1990's I started looking for something more to my liking and discovered the stuff made by Silicon Graphics Inc.

I have seen Indy and Indigos in my early architecture student days when O2 and Octane just came out. The closet i got in school was logging on to a Onyx quad machine via internet.

I am an Architect but i don't practice it now. Doing energy research and other stuff on my own capacity.
