I had posted this on Craigslist and got zero action, I assume nobody even knows what it is. I figured I would give it once last chance here before it goes in the trash.

I have an SGI Indy Workstation, no idea if it works. Pictures are of the actual unit., It has no hard drive installed. I also have the original PS2 "Granite" keyboard for it in great condition.

It is free, local pickup or I can ship it. Just hate to throw it away...

EDIT: I uploaded pictures here, but I'm not sure how to make them visible.

It won't work with 6 RAM sticks, that's for sure! They've gotta be installed in sets of 4 or 8, as a heads-up to any future owner.

It all looks to be there, though. Hopefully it finds a good home. Boise's just a toooouch too far for me to drive to in the winter, heh.

I'd love to have this and would happily pay you to box and ship it! an Indy and an O2 are the only things needed to round my collection out! I'll send you a PM. :)

If I recall, this machine played a short song when the power button was pressed, but nothing after that. I didn't have a VGA Adapter to to see if anything came up on a monitor.

I travel to Seattle and Portland and Central Oregon frequently, if you're in one of those directions I can meet up and give it to you.

We had a lot of Nekochan users in Seattle and Portland so certainly someone should be able to rescue it. ( I also suspect someone like Adrian Black, who is Portland, would take it in and pass it on after playing with it). So if no one active is in the area, I'll try to dig up a home for it. (I'm SoCal so that a nope from me.)
