Hello from BW/Germany

My name is Thomas and I live in South Germany near Stuttgart. In the past I had many SGI systems till 2004, then SGI made this Itanium crap and I lost interest, sold many of them and when moving to a new appartment, I throw some of them away to trash. I kept only two Octanes and some parts in my cellar. Also some original documentations and promotions pieces.
Last week I came to the idea to pick up the Octanes from my cellar and tried to get them to work again, successful.
I will post some pictures from my past SGI experience and from now, perhaps it will be interesting for someone.
