Do the free upgrade to 10 on that machine before ya give it to some church
people that probably dont know much about computers. :P. And yeah, it's
still a free upgrade.



Technically, there is no free upgrade to 10 anymore. However, functionally
it does still work.

I have a SATA SSD they're welcome to. I've found that even 5yr old
computers, when given an SSD with a fresh build (goodbye malware) are
as fast as a new computer for everything except 3D gaming.

Or I'll just give a desktop PC. It comes with a Windows 7 license and
has an SSD for the aforementioned speed.

I guess I'm not a real nerd. I would be trying to convince them to
become do Linux, if they are OK with trying something new. Seriously
though, maybe that's an option also.

I read the warning on PS/2 however I assumed all SGI keyboards were SGI pinout. So too late. The Indigo still boots but always complains it cannot connect to the keyboard.

I already ordered one of those converters you linked but will not arrive before meeting. I also don't have a mini-DIN to Dsub converter unless the Sun IPC/X version will work?

It has the R4400 @ 150 MHz CPU module but only basic graphics.

Selling Question

Nick Mizgala
 

Hey all, hope you’ve been doing well. I apologize to everyone in the group that I’ve been slow to respond to by email.

We expected this Arcade Pub buildout to painfull and difficult, its still good to know the Universe like to exceed one’s expectations on occasion.

Long story short, we got fucked by our Architect/General Contractor and this has made the margins on success razor thin.

I’ll be liquidating a lot of PC and Mac computer parts and want to know the policy on selling stuff in this group. For example, this iMac (photos attached) for $20. I can deliver to the meeting this weekend.

Whatever money these sales manage to bring in will help our situation.

And, if things go further south, I’ll have less stuff to deal with when we need to move.

Thank you.

Requesting Computer Parts for Community Service Project

sunneygao9@...
 

Hey everyone, I'm doing a community service project in which I will build systems for people in nursing homes and homeless shelters and teach them how the computers work. The people will be able to feel less lonely because they can chat online, watch videos, etc. Also,it can help people at the homeless shelter find a job. If you live in the Decatur/Atlanta area and you have free parts you do not want anymore, feel free to send me a message. Thanks!

Re: IRIX installation party

as well as a USB serial adapter. I can bring mine if needed.

It should be possible to install IRIX 6.5.22 on your Indigo.

Re: IRIX installation party

Andy Craig
 

You probably should confirm but it looks like there are PS/2 keyboards for other SGI products. The site below is usually correct but not perfect. I have found an error there before. 

That is so weird for them to use +8v and -8v supplies.
