Ian.
so odd reading some posts here. 225 ukp for a pci card cage for a octane ? Really ? That is pure insanity. Dual 600 octanes don't fetch that here in the US.
Remember - Ian sells these for a living, and with a thing called 'warranty'.
What Dual-600 Octane on ebay for less money than 225 UKP offers warranty?
:O3200: :Fuel: :Indy: :O3x02L:
I sometimes wish the European market would be as cheap as the US market but sadly it is not. However, If you want to make sure of a trouble free transaction, then Ian is defo the man.

He has (nearly) everything. Test everything prior to shipping and is a pro at packaging. All these professional grade services are also part of the price.

You obviously don't get quotes from commercial SGI dealers (Cordnet happily sells dual-600 Octane2s for 5000 UKP).
225 UKP for a new, never-used PCI cage is a damn good price. I normally sell used cages for twice that much.

I've been badly underselling things this past year and it's cost me dearly, eg. I was selling quad-IP25 boards for 195 UKP, couldn't
work out why they were so popular, until I found out the 'normal' commercial value had risen to nearly 4X that much, ie. other
dealers had been using me as a cheap supplier to their own end customers, making a big markup in the process for free. I can
list dozens of other examples where hobbyists seem to have not the slightest idea how commercially valuable many items are.
See my numerous past posts on this subject here. Ironically, the companies which buy things from me think my prices are crazy low.
One company even complained to a different dealer that my Indy prices are too low because it made their accountants confused
re how expensive the systems were when first bought.

The perceived value separation some hobbyists have really is bizarre. Ask the various dealers for a quote, then get back to me.
The prices I've posted here are less than half what most dealers would charge, in most cases much less than half. If any are
doing better, it's because they have a big stock to ditch or don't care. I, however, am a 1-man operation and everything I sell
directly covers food, rent, taxes, bills and reinvesting for further sales. Quite frankly, if it wasn't for me, hobbyists worldwide
would have no quality/reliable source for SGI items at all . If everyone thought as you, I'd have to give this whole thing
up and do a 9-to-5, bye bye to the world of SGI. I work ruddy hard at this, often at the cost of my personal life, and financially
I'm no better off now than I was when I started 5 years ago, yet I struggle on because I think it's worthwhile.

And as others have said there's how I deal with items, packing, etc. If you want to use eBay, then there's a good chance your
O2 purchase will arrive looking like this (2 systems I bought recently from a guy in France):

http://www.sgidepot.co.uk/misc/o2s.zip

whereas if you buy from me, it'll arrive safe, mint, perfect, fully cleaned, with a mega install like nobody else does. Ask those who've
bought systems from me, if you want confirmation. You get what you pay for. See my feedback pages for numerous examples.
Here are some pics of typical boxes I've posted with O2s:

I don't try to compete with 'raw' eBay pricing because eBay is full of junk with people who've no idea how to pack stuff. Besides,
eBay is not a land of bargains anymore, those days are long gone. Check the listings, there are hardly any normal auctions
now for SGI items. It's mostly BIN.

Ian.

PS. Apologies for the rant, but sometimes this whole, "everything should be free!" mentality really gets on my wick when I'm doing
16-hour days to survive. I posted the above advert with huge discounts (typically half price) because for 2 weeks from the end of
Nov I sold zilch due to the bad weather (I've done 32 hours of snow shoveling during that time ), ie. with the expense of xmas and the
next rent day approaching, I needed to get some pennies in. And btw, one guy is indeed buying a PCI cage, so QED. :)

Sorry, but it seems that in your area your not used to having snow?
Where are the plowers and tractors?

Possibly not as much as in Sweden... Glasgow Council reported two of their plowers were damaged because packs of ice :shock: My car was left stranded for 3 days on the train station car park because of the snow and we spent 10 hours with neighbours last week shoveling the snow off the private road where I live... The good thing in Scotland is that there is always some good whisky around to warm you up after spending so much time in the snow 8-)

Though of course scoffing booze is the last thing one should be doing in severely cold weather. :D

Speaking of cold, anyone know the safe minimum operating temp for an O300 short rack? I managed to obtain one, but had to take
it all apart to get the bits into the garage . I'd like to put it back together, but it's currently -3C outside. Hmm, maybe the safe minimum
temp for me is also a factor... :}

Ian.
I wouldn't feel confident in bringing it up in temperatures below zero. Nasty bits can happen when the system generates heat and what might get to be condensation...
Put an electrical heater in there to preheat the system before you turn it on. That way you can actually get that system to keep the temperature above zero in there. :-)
:O3200: :Fuel: :Indy: :O3x02L:
Hmm, in that case I'll leave it for a bit. Plenty to do in the house meanwhile, though I was kinda itching to know the system spec. :D
The three node bricks are quad-CPU and the RAM seems to be maxed, but other than that I've no idea.

Thanks for the info!

Hmmm… there is only one auction on eBay UK for Sgi branded items and it's a shirt. Otherwise 99 BIN sales including a £200 R5k/200 O2 and a £570 R4.4k Indigo2 :roll:

eBay France has more Sgi stuff but expect figures like €100 for an Irix 6.5 CD set or €140 for an external Sgi SCSI DVD drive (ok, this one is new) and just as much for a set of CrystalEyes…

And craigslist is not nearly as furbished in Europe as well

This puts me in mind of cases where clear tape has been used to seal up objects entombed in bubblewrap. It can be frustrating trying to figure out the interlocking, overlapping web of tape tracks if you're trying to salvage or recycle the bubblewrap...

Hehe, on larger boxes I use gaffer tape, in which case I normally include the following text in my 'parcel sent' email:

Code: Select all

You will need a _sharp_ knife to open the box. First cut along the top of the box, inbetween the two adjacent strips of FRAGILE tape.
Then cut along the end side edges. Please retain the packaging at least for a while, in case of any warranty issues.


but maybe I forgot in your case, or perhaps I assumed you were smart enough to work it out on your own. ;D

I have a mountain of stuff I wanted to list this year, but never had the time to sort out. Ah well, maybe in 2011.

Yeah, and a lot of it is all from the same seller. :D (siliconburn; can't complain, I've bought things from him before)

A blow torch would be more useful., defrost me appendages. 8|

Yeah, that drives me nuts aswell. There's a popular US seller who uses this method... you know who you are! :D

Er... I'll insert some then! Ha!! 8)
