Nah, not in this case - this particular Tezro was on eBay:

I just had to pull the spare IO9 from my O350. But there's also an IO9 on eBay for $250.

I was mighty interested in this but chickened out due to the gfx err message.
Nice to see that it ended up at your place and was easy to get going.

What was the deal with that error message anyway, missing io9?

Two Tezro's, in Sweden, for $1000.
Now this is a deep dark secret, so everybody keep it quiet :)
It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi

How's the noise level? Fuel-like or Onyx2-like?


More Fuel-like than Onyx; it isn't bad at all. It's probably due to the combination of the recessed front fans (the "fan wall" as SGI calls it) and the relatively slow RPM.

The labeled fuction keys brought up specific views; A-P= a ntero p osterior; P-A= p ostero a nterior;


Ah, that sounds familiar now - you may have mentioned that to me before. Failing memory :)

Right - IO9 is essential to the system. In addition to providing your basic IO (console, network, SCSI, IDE) it also contains the NVRAM and TOD clock. Without a valid NVRAM the machine was unable to determine the graphics state (amongst countless other things I'd wager) and flagged the error.

Where was that listed - in Albania ? For twenty minutes ? Only four bids, all from the same person ?

Something smells fishy here !

Aaargh! And I'm usually looking out on eBay daily or atleast some times a week, and now this... *bangs head to desk*

What the f**!!
How can I have missed this one??
Dam you jan-jaap. You just ruined my day! :evil:
The location is in driving distance from me. I cant for the life understand how I could have missed that one.
Probably not listed for very long as hamei said.

Now, if I had told you 'nanana, look what I picked up under your noses' but I wouldn't have minded this one myself. Sell off system number too, keep one free Tezro!

Looks like a regular auction to me:

Code: Select all

roberto.t       US $1,000.00    Aug-24-08 23:03:40 PDT

roberto.t       US $1,000.00    Aug-23-08 22:12:44 PDT
Starting Price   US $1,000.00    Aug-18-08 01:00:29 PDT

The buyer is adjusting his bid, probably afraid to be sniped in the last second. The seller however, is from Sweden, has zero feedback and posted to Ebay US (or at least that's where I found this one). I can imagine some people's hesitation to bid on it, and Mr. Roberto T. got lucky.

He was a bit silly not to make it available in Europe.

Code: Select all

Ships to: United States

I think he would have gotten many more bidders.

Right, it was a little a weird. He wanted $600 for shipping plus he had no feedback whatsoever - that was way beyond risky for me.

There is a Tezro at eBay/Germany:

http://cgi.ebay.de/SGI-TEZRO-2x700MHz-3 ... 31121a2488

The dealer is in Braunschweig (15 min from my home). But I suppose, 2200 € is to much.
@nekonoko - when your schedule allows would you consider adding your system to the Tezro Hardware Gallery?

Some interior shots would be a nice addition :D

I can add the shots I already took (and are posted earlier in this thread) - there isn't much more to show than that. Two side panels - two views of the interior :)

Thanks - I know for one I'd be appreciative of their inclusion in the Gallery. Other than your shots most of the photos I've seen are low-res exterior shots with only the occasional oblique glimpse of the internals.
