Maybe a disclaimer might be in order? Something simple saying that Nekochan or its operators are not responsible for anything in the bazaar, and users should research potential buyers/ sellers before contemplating a transaction?

I seriously don't know why users would complain to Neko if their deal went south. I actually had a bad experience with someone on the forum which is documented in another thread. I knew it was my own fault for not investigating the user (niker) completely, since it seems I wasn't the only one here he shortchanged. It kind of really sucks, since I wasn't buying or selling anything with him, just offering to be a helpful US enthusiast to pick up local hardware and forward it to him in Slovakia at cost. I still have my $600 shipping bill (Octane2s and VBOBs are heavy) of which I was paid less than half. Not to mention the customs nonesense he put me through. I declared the items at the eBay purchase price, since custom fraud is a big thing and the USPS often will ask for receipts and proof of payment if they need to pay a claim, but of course he didn't want to pay the fees. Anyway... enough of my rant. The end result is a major reluctance to do something similar in the future. That said, the vast majority of my deals on the forum have been good and I hope one or two bad apples doesn't ruin it for everyone.

EDIT: Grammer.


It would take something unimaginable for me to buy or sell anything outside of the country. There's really no reason to, unless it's a reputable dealer like mapesdhs or the like, in which case I would be turned off by the shipping costs. For example, I got a MXI board for my octane from a dealer in michigan. Shipping was $5 and took a couple days. From Ian, the shipping was well over $40 (what the board was worth), and would have taken at least a week or so. Pick yer poison.

Also deals like that where you have to act as the middleman, for somebody you've had no prior dealings with, to ship something to someplace you've never heard of (and will never visit) really rub me the wrong way. Why didn't you wait until you had the payment in full before you shipped it?

Here's a nice rule: "If your deal goes south, we don't want to hear you bitch about it. Use common sense." And then some legalese about how it's nobody's fault but your own.

well, maybe I should have worded that a bit differently. I wouldn't receive something for somebody and forward it to slovakia without getting most of my cut first :|

I've sent a lot of stuff to canada to extended family, but cheap stuff where customs isn't a big deal. I've gone through hell with customs because of a cheap ($150) walkman. I also don't run a business or online storefront so don't really have anything that would be worth the shipping. That may (will) change but I have to wonder what tillin9 was thinking when he thought to spend $600 shipping an octane without receiving payment first. I'm sure his intentions were good.

If you are going to use water pipe, you could use pipe insulation for a hand grip.

You can find insulation, that is like foam rubber, and as it is meant to be used on water pipe it has the right diameter. Another plus point is that you can get everything from the same place.


or you could be a man and hold onto COLD HARD STEEL :D



pipe insulation sounds like a good idea, I was about to suggest that actually. But if it's going to be so cold out that it would be a problem, you'd be better off with gloves anyway. Foam insulation doesn't last forever when you really handle it.

Nice system! I remember, back when I was 15 years old and relatively new to CG, I dreamed about owning one of those. I remember that I became so curious, I one day picked up the telephone in an adventurous mood and called SGI to ask how much one of their lowest spec.'ed O2 systems would cost. I remember the price was extremely high, especially for a 15-year-old kid, being something like ~ƒ15,000 (Dutch guilders; the equivalent of $8,500 or $9000, depending on the value of the US$ at the time)...

Is it true that the R5K O2 s somehow perform better than some R10K and R12K s? That's what I heard from some people, something I've picked up here on the forum as well in some threads. By the way, you should try to get an A/V-module (if you haven't acquired one already, in the meanwhile). That's undoubtedly one of the most interesting, and unique , features of the O2 among SGI visual workstations...

Haha- I wish! This is among the slowest O2s out there- all it has going for it is that they are bulletproof, lightweight and easy to carry around. Looks good too!

But unless you are the NSA 8-) , there's no reason for a low-level format. A new filesystem is more than enough.

With regards to silkscreen: it doesn't seem to be a problem but as there is such a variance between different plastics and inks as well as retrobright formulas, I would recommend trying an inconspicuous area or throwaway piece first. I'm not sure if you would find much printing on (for example) the interior side of a piece of plastic, but if you do that would probably be an ideal place to try.

If it was a big deal I'm sure previous users of the formula would have noticed. It seems to be a non-issue.

Indeed, I should have added I haven't looked much past the linked wiki page. Didn't see any disclaimer regarding screenprinting though, that is definitely something to keep in mind.

This is somewhat off-topic, but the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, while they work unbelievably well for removing gunk and scuffs, will take your model and serial numbers off with just a single careless swipe. :cry:

So while my onyx now looks like it just rolled off the assembly line, it also has hand-written model and serial numbers (just in case I ever need them for an odd reason they will still be there) :?

I've had lots of scsi drives fail and only one ata drive fail, which is funny because I have a lot more ata and sata drives than scsi drives.

but scsi disks are made for the commercial environment and redundancy where if a disk fails it's not a big deal. so I guess they really aren't made to last. I kind of expect scsi disks to fail, but it was a real shock to have an ata-type drive die on me.

Well, that certainly isn't my experience. Did you second-hand buy all those SCSI disks by any chance? The thing is, while mechanically speaking the drives may indeed suffer from the same sort of failures (bearings wearing out, to name something), SCSI and FC are often in the 10K and 15K+ RPM range, thus are better suited for RAID/LVM protection via mirroring and striping (being a lot faster).
I have a lot of second hand scsi disks and a lot of second hand sata disks. I rarely buy anything new.

eMGee wrote:
Aside reliability, about which opinions seem very mixed, the whole (P/S)ATA versus SCSI/FC discussion: You can't deny that SCSI and particularly FC outrun SATA easily. I haven't even mentioned iSCSI or SAS, the latter being an awkward hybrid of SCSI and SATA (in some regards) which appears to be making significant inroads...

imo, scsi for speed, sata for capacity and longevity.

Maybe because a 15k disk is double the speed of a 7.2 disk we can expect them to last half as long? That's certainly been my experience, anyways. YMMV.

I haven't noticed much of a difference, but haven't been able to do much with it yet as I'm still getting the OS sorted out. Some 3d demos I tried seem much smoother than before; the big reason for the upgrade was so textured objects (especially games and videos) wouldn't have a scanlined appearance due to faulty tram.

also I think the power consumption is (maybe?) a bit lower.

OK, so today I have been trying to get my alphastation 600 5/333 running with windows NT4. The NT installer is having a problem seeing the hard drive, it shows up in the 'display hardware configuration' menu from the arc console as:
Code:
scsi(1)disk(1)rdisk(0)   (RAW)   SGI     QUANTUM XP34550WLXY4


When I start the NT installation it goes fine up until the point where it is time to format the disk, it shows me the controller under the list of mass storage devices:
Code:
QLogic PCI SCSI Host Adapter

but there are no disks, the controller is the only thing windows sees, and I'm quite sure I've set the default environment variables in the arc console correctly.


So how do I get windows to see the hard disk?

Also, before anybody tells me to use something other than NT4, I should add that this machine normally runs openbsd fine, just want to try something different is all :)

I blame the sca-to-68 pin adapter I was using, as when I put the disk into my PC it couldn't be bothered to notice it in either the bios, windows, or an ubuntu live cd. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with the adapter, I just don't know how to use it :P

So I took the disk out of my onyx (the only spare non-sca disk I could find) and put it in to my PC and it showed up fine. put it into the alpha and it also showed up fine, in both the ARC firmware and the NT installer.

I've learned this lesson several times over, but once again, improperly configured scsi devices act quite bizzare.

I'm not comparing given MTBF failures or any concrete data... I just said I've seen a lot more SCSI disks fail than ATA disks. I also use a lot more ATA disks than SCSI disks. Most ATA disks I see are 10+ years old, my most recent SCSI faiure was at the end of July, in my octane, with a disk that I bought new in 2007.

However, if the silent fujitsu hype is to be believed I might pick up a pair for my PC.

oh yeah, it's sweeter, badder, and just plain faster all around. (now that I've had a few months to wear it in ;) ) But a big reason for upgrading was to get rid of the MXI scanlines in textured windows, especially mplayer videos. Should have gone with a v8 though, the low color depth (I believe that is causing the dithering??) is a bit noticable for some things. In places I wouldn't expect to notice it, like fast-paced games such as quake2 and bzflag.

Now I need a faster pair of processors. Boy do I <3 my octane. All the other computers can go pound sand, I love my octane. :)

Well, if you must know, there is currently a pair of Mackie SRM450s just a rockin' but that is only a temporary setup. Normally I use a shure psm200 in-ear but sometimes you need to let a friend listen, and the octane speakers are perfectly adequate for getting a tune across.

Are you implying a rackmount system is useless? I remove the front off the system and it's a naked front.


well, a hp-ux machine might be fun to have, but that front panel looks like it might triple the storage space requirements. With a bit of creativity it could look like a regular desktop tower. Plus, did you really need the 400 pounds of ups batteries?


All I'm saying is a bit of moderation would have kept your parents happy. ;)

I don't think the o2 can display anything much above 1600x1024... maybe 1600x1200 with a strong tail wind, heading downhill ;)

If the loop is short enough, it could very well be possible, but you will have to drop the resolution regardless.

I got four copies of win 7 pro for free through MSDNAA and one of 7 ultimate through the bookstore for $7.99. Why do you need to pirate software when they practically give it away? Though windows 7 is probably the first ms OS that is well worth the money.

although, this one is far away, rather expensive (once you factor in shipping or gas money to pick it up), the server model has no graphics, no guarantee that it is working (no 120V outlets in his "shop"??!)... How bad is your red fever?

I waited for at least two years for my onyx, from "hmm that looks like fun" to actually picking it up. and then almost another year before I got it working. Started with the octane (I say, still a superior machine though it lacks the heft and quality of the bigger machines) passed over a few with low spec or in really bad shape though.

not necessarily. a person might pick one up to play with for a few years and then give it to somebody else so it's mysteries can be discovered yet again by another mind.

One more clock you have to remember to "spring forward" and "fall back". Is there a setting to do this automatically? I looked this past October but couldn't find it. Some might notice that I am in the eastern time zone and therefore it is well past my bedtime. ...

wanted to do some reading on this old sgi, but I think I broke the wiki. :oops:

http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/index.php? ... is+old+sgi

in my infinite wisdom I thought maybe "this" is some keyword so tried:
http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/index.php? ... +sgi&go=Go

which results in the same thing, tried in srware iron and internet explorer 8 and even deleted all the settings in ie8 and tried again. each time I get this error:
Code:
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "". MySQL returned error "145: Table './wikidb/searchindex' is marked as crashed and should be repaired (localhost)".


although searching "onyx" for example does take me to the onyx page.


maybe growing pains with the new server? or is neko already fixing it...
