The collected works of 87Porsche - Page 1

Turtle looks pretty slick. If only there was an IRIX version.
"This is the new Boeing 777. This is the box in came in." I've got this poster up in my office.

Octane hat, Cray Research hat, Power of Insight hat.

Cube logo canvas bag & mini-screwdriver set I got from http://www.sgistore.com waaaay back in the day.

4 different styles of mousepads.

eBay tookit, eBay vinyl cube logo stickers, which are really nice.

Bandit Video #6 (VHS). Shows AutoCAD running on an Indigo I think.

And of couse, The New New Thing. A must read.

Love to get my hands on an O2 bag. Or I'd settle for an Indy or Indigo2 bag.
There used to be an SGI sales office about five miles from here. That's where I got it... Probably ten years ago. A friend and I walked in there one day BS-ing with the sales guy like we had fifty grand to drop. He gave us the posters and some other stuff. My friend got the poster with the Ford Escort or Taurus or something like that on it. I just remember the car was a red Ford.

If I could scan it I would. But if someone does have a high quality scan I would be able to print them full size.

Here's what the bottom of the poster says.

[email protected] works great.

But expect to pay some extra dough for a monitor that will support 96Hz. I'm sure you could find a refurb one for cheap. Otherwise you're at least looking at 5-600 for a CRT that will support 96Hz.

Or if you've already got one then you're set. :D
At least they'll finally take that damn Olympics thing off of the main page.
That CEI EnSight video has a quick shot of a RedHat taskbar. Does that mean one could run Maya on it? :)

I don't like the chocolate Pop-Tarts. The strawberry ones are better.
We buy a lot from Uline at work. Their quality has always been great.

From the looks of the page, you might not be able to buy them individually. But you've got lots of sizes to choose from. :D

Though it might be worth a phone call to see if they'd sell you a handful of them.

Can't get in either.
Can't forget the big irons behind the glass.

Don't forget 'The Peacemaker'. Lots of workstations in that one too.

Either I'm on crack or my Octane is. But when I go to open the first folder, 'cd1', in Software Manager the 6.5.29 readme comes up. After opening the other two everything shows up as 6.5.29... "Same Version".
And now they've been pulled from the site as of noon here.
Yeah it's safe. It's downloaded and installed. My Octane still works.
I've been fiddling with Maya 4.5 off and on (mostly off) since '03. I jump around quite a bit between materials, lighting, mental ray, etc. I've spent very little time with animating scenes and modeling, which is why most of the crap I do is spheres and cubes. Though I know the basics of each I just haven't concentrated on them too much. My focus has always been photorealistic scenes. I've long been enamored with those. The kind of pictures that you have to sit there and think about it if it's real or not is what I want to do... When I get off my ass and teach myself modeling.

This is from a few months ago. A simple flat plane with a cracked mud texture, some chrome spheres, and a single ambient light that is slightly yellow in color to try and simulate sunlight. Then all of that is inside one big sphere with a wide angle picture overlooking San Francisco mapped to the inside of it. A "fake" HDRI of sorts. Then a depth of field lens shader in mental ray for the blurriness. Rendered at 1280x720 on an 8 CPU Origin.

One of my all time favorites... Fiat Lux.

Silicon Graphics, Alias|Wavefront and Mental Images. Ahhh.

Paul Haeberli photographed the "cafe" environment map in Cafe Verona in Palo Alto, CA. He used a Nikon film camera with 180 fisheye lens that he borrowed from Ned Greene while he was working at NYIT. To create the full 360 degree environment, Paul mirrored the front 180 degree image to create a plausible back 180 degrees, and then stitched the two images together to produce a complete environment. This environment map, along with another one shot in a flower garden, shipped as the two environment map choices in Silicon Graphics' popular real-time shading demos. In December 2003 Paul unearthed the original fisheye image used to create the Cafe environment map, and the full 360 map derived from it.

I'm amazed how fast this system is overall. It completely blows away my (former) dual 600 Octane. Even the R14K 600MHz Fuel I'm currently rebuilding is amazingly fast compared to the Octane.

Which is exactly why I wound up selling my Octane2; detractors be damned. Fuels simply rock :)


Indeed. AND... I can actually have my Origin and dual Xeon running at the same time the Fuel is. Instead of one or the other with the Octane. Of course once I power on the FC JBOD's, it gets dark very quickly.
Ditto on the Samsung. I've got a 740BX and a 204B, a 17" and 20", both are SOG and both work perfectly with Octane graphics. VPro or MGRAS.
Now with sound. Finally.
Yep plug and go just like you said. And it sounds good too. If only the Fuel had 1 or 2 more PCI-X slots.
I used to have one of those way back when. It was a lot of fun with the Novalogic games (Comanche, F-22, etc.) I kept it on a glass head sculpture I found at Pier 1 Imports. Had great sounding headphones too.

And if I remember correctly, the VFX1 would not work with AGP video cards, only PCI.

If you built the Link box you could bypass the VIP card and plug directly into a standard VGA output (or use a passthrough). The only real reason you couldn't use AGP was because it lacked the VESA Feature connector.
People have managed to get resolutions up to 1024 x 768 with link boxes but so far it looks like alot of work with the soldering iron. At least we have a component supplier in town.
Do you still have the cd's/disks? The utilities and drivers would be really nice.



Trust me, the AGP card in question did have feature connector. This was during the AGP 1X/2X era. Even my VooDoo5 5500 had a feature connector.

That link box could either be a lot of fun to build or an enormous headache. But if you could find one of these... http://www.geocities.com/vr_junkie/LinkBox.jpg At least with a VIP card you could make sure the entire unit still works properly first before modding it.

I don't have anything left of it. I sold all of it plus the computer it was hooked up to.
This might help too.

Did you push it in with the Octane's power on or off?

If it was on, shut it down and turn it back on. Then see if it shows up.

It it was off and the drive is good then you should have a new icon on your desktop. The 3D piechart / trivial pursuit / wedding cake looking icon.
So I finally get ahold of a component to SDI converter box. Hooked everything up to my Onyx2/DIVO combo and the live audio/video feed come through fine. I also have an Octane/DIVO combination as well. Everything works with that too. Vpaper, shatter, awesome... everything works.

However, capturing video is another story. From what I have read, and tried, dmrecord does not work with DIVO boards. The manual pages make no mention of the DIVO board. I've also tried Orion, but that application will bring both systems to their knees. All I can do is hit the reset button. I've only found two posts that make mention of Orion, one person got it to work and the other never could. The most I'm able to do is use divo_vidtomem to grab individual frames, which are worthless.

What am I missing here?

Well I got Orion to work. The trick is... Don't use 6.5.30. I installed 6.5.8 on the Octane, then upgraded to .12, installed the DIVO software and Orion works. Fairly good. It's still a little funky, but it doesn't kill the machine anymore. Maybe it would work even better by going to a mid 20's release.

However, I did stumble across the 'avcapture' command late last night and that works perfectly. I haven't tried it on the Onyx2 yet (.30) but it's great on the Octane. Is that the command you were using?

I'd try the magic 6.5.22 release... not sure if anything beyond that was just some minor things (timezone updates, etc.) and possibly some extra hardware firmware updates with regards to O2k, seems that much of the new updates seem to have been targeted at the IP35-class boxes.


That will a good next step.

Was it .22 or .23 that had the anti-aliased fonts and icons?

Do you mean that you are using a Onyx2/Origin2000 style DIVO card in an Octane (with the latch modified, obviously)? Or do you have two different boards and you are just calling them both DIVO? Or am I just confused and they are actually both called DIVO even though they are two different boards?



There's two identical DIVO boards. One in an Onyx2, and the other with a modified latch bolted to a V6 in an Octane2.

Does this include the systems that were smashed to bits a few years ago?

http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11793&start=0&hilit=warehouse

I just got the "Remarks" newsletter and that was one of the links in the e-mail. "The most environmentally friendly computer is the one that's already built." Fucking morons.
It's not the landfill waste those shredded systems created that irked me, it's this...

Many of our systems provide the performance, reliability and longevity for two lifetimes. SGI Remarketed Products program recycles available materials from trade-in programs, lease returns, and excess demo, and then fully refurbishes this equipment into dependable, cost-effective systems and options.


Granted it was a different group of clowns running things in 2006 compared to today. At least I assume it is. Or this is just Rackable's SOP being applied to the SGI inventory.

If they would have put that inventory up for sale I would have gladly dipped into savings for a reasonably priced remarketed Tezro. But not an $11,795 dip like they are now.

New car expensive. They were EOL'ed in Dec. 2006 so one would still have paid regular price during the slaughter.
