    ssl proxy

    Oh, you want to run the squid proxy on IRIX as well? I just assumed it would be running on another server with the IRIX machine as the client. If running squid on the IRIX machine it will still need to be compiled with a version of OpenSSL that supports newer TLS and ciphers.

    ssl proxy

    For what it's worth there is a new version of OpenSSL ported for IRIX, 1.0.2: https://github.com/larb0b/irixports/blob/master/openssl/package.sh It should support newer TLS and could presumably be used to build a browser that supports it? An SSL proxy will work although it pushes the problem of...

    What is the Rarest Piece of SGI Hardware you own?

    This one doesn't seem to be any more or less brittle than the other Indigo2s I have; not Indy tough but reasonable, and nothing near O2 brittle. I used it a bit last year although I don't really keep it in ongoing service. Runs pretty much like other external SCSI enclosures :) It reminds me...

    What is the Rarest Piece of SGI Hardware you own?

    I have the same thing; I believe the resistors are to put a minimum load on the switching power supply for stability (rather than for heat).

    Indy and Indigo2 Emulation Screenshots

    Sounds a little rough but it's great to hear that things have gotten this far; holds a lot of promise :)

    User recognition and titles

    So we received some further feedback from a respected member that aligned more with my own thoughts: that it would be nice to maintain a flat hierarchy and not spin out separate titles, more in the UNIX "User Group" tradition of the USENET / late 80s - 90s era. Also to minimize the differences...

    User recognition and titles

    Welcome! Since it is a bit of a different concept I just added them all under one voting option.

    User recognition and titles

    Some background: I'll blame @Unxmaal and @massiverobot for the nautically oriented ones; however @Unxmaal claims that my suggestion of "SGI Guru" is for boring old people.

    User recognition and titles

    There have been some thoughts lately about adding another title for the forum and chat to recognize that have contributed a lot or are good sources of information for the community. A variety of colorful suggestions have already been put forth and there is no clear consensus. Personally I just...

    WTB: Indy PSU

    I apologize, I don't have any power supplies I can sell immediately (although I do have a batch of Indys I will probably list whenever I get a few free hours), but just curious: have you tried measuring the power rails with a multimeter, while it is under operation? I am curious what the power...

    What is the Rarest Piece of SGI Hardware you own?

    Thank you! I'm not quite sure whether the system board is a prototype or not, but there are some pictures of it here:

    Wow, I had no idea SGI made an Indigo 2 in that form factor!

    NTT Indy Mysteries

    The composite output comes from a separate board that isn't a regular graphics adapter and thus would not show the PROM boot menu or any IRIX boot messages / login screen. There is likely special software and drivers on whatever the netbooted image would be that determine what to display from...

    NTT Indy Mysteries

    From what I saw it doesn't output any video over the 13W3 connector but it's worth a 2nd look.

    Thanks! :)

    Indy Power Supply information

    @callahan - no problem! I just ask that you link back to the forum thread to credit the original source :)

    Indy Power Supply information

    @Str1kernaut it should exceed them, but prior to releasing it I will put it under full load and post how it performs. Note however none of the original power supplies do too well :P

    What is the Rarest Piece of SGI Hardware you own?

    To answer the original question I'd guess that the brown Indigo 1 above (dubbed the "browndigo" by Dodoid) is probably the rarest although it's hard to say amongst the prototypes what is the most rare. I also have other things like oddly colored (and differently constructed) O2 A/V modules, the...
