    Onyx4 UltimateVision issues (#1 console=g)

    Maybe look in chkconfig for X-windows related things that aren't switched on? You might also want to check which init runlevel you are in once you boot.

    Software for PA-RISC 1.1

    I just looked at the places I know, and I am seeing the same thing you are. It's unfortunate that there don't appear to be any (obvious) archives of the old packages?

    Free to good home: SGI Indy Workstation, with original PS2 Keyboard

    If you end up not being able to hand it off to someone else directly, I am in the Portland metro area, drive through Boise occasionally, and can box/test/ship it for others.

    Testing a SCSI SCA SSD from Red Rock Tech...

    Thanks for posting! I remember seeing the challenges with this in the Discord chat; quite the investment for the Tezro, hopefully it stabilizes! :)

    350 Mhz O2 CPU Back From The Dead

    Not entirely surprised I guess; those resistors don't usually just go that bad on their own, so usually something downstream will be drawing too much current. It could be the line side capacitors, or maybe the switching MOSFETs, or a whole host of other smaller things.

    Silicon Graphics screwdrivers!

    I had one where the body of the screwdriver looked identical to that, except it was from Reputable Systems, the now defunct SGI reseller

    Ouch, interesting, you only sprayed down the CPU connectors and nothing inside the power supply? Maybe it was on its way out anyways 😅

    350 Mhz O2 CPU Back From The Dead

    Great troubleshooting work! It is interesting what kind of problems are happening -- physically, electrically -- with machines of this age. I have a similar intermittent failure issue with some Fuel RAM slot connectors and probably need to go through the same sort of exercise.

    WSI WeatherProducer 3.0

    Welcome! :) I haven't heard much about the Weather Channel hardware or software outside of what techknight (on the Discord) has talked about, but I assume he's part of the same group you mention so that probably isn't a great help. Good luck with the search though, and hopefully someone knows!
