I thought I'd start a thread to say "hi" for new members. I didn't see one yet.
I've been active on discord for quite a while and have long wanted an SGI workstation, as they are "dream machines". Thanks to some nice peeps through the community I'm very close to making this a reality. I thought I'd join here too to help contribute and gain access to more info and people who love these old beasts.

Welcome! :)

I have been saying this forever, but, I do have a stack of Indys that I intend to sell. They make good starter machines, and they'll be posted up here!

Hi there! New to the forums, longtime SGI owner, though often not running IRIX. I currently have an IMPACT Indigo2 (well, my wife's really) and what boils down to a parts unit non-IMPACT Indigo2. IMPACT Indigo2 currently has NetBSD on it, but I'm wanting to get IRIX reinstalled. I've previously owned an O2 and an Indy, a friend has the O2 now, I regret selling the Indy around 10 years ago when we moved. The O2 was my main workshop system for a while, I had SCA drives with IRIX and Debian, spent more and more time booted into Debian while it was in use.

I mostly dabble in older stuff (minis and micros from the 70s) but I'm also interested in old UNIX and UNIX-like systems!

Glitchwrks,
I think most people know you for your NVRAM chip fix boards! Glad to see you here. I love your website, and apreciate your board designs.

I was just looking at it, looking for a piggy-back board for the clock chip in my Indy, which needs replacement real soon! The originals are out of production now... Not sure if you make one. The original is a Dallas DS1386-8K-150 RAMified Timekeeper.

Again, welcome!
