"This old SGI" page - anyone have a copy?

Since this is actually my page, I should probably see what's going on...
admittedly, I've kind of let it lapse for the past couple of years,
(things got really busy for a while...). When I first put this together,
it was the only reference out there of this type for SGI stuff (which is why
I did it.) Now, there seem to be a whole host of SGI specific sites, so
I never really saw the need to update it... the new sites seemed to be
handling the newer systems quite adequately.

The last time I logged into Geocities, it was an independent company...
I just tried it a few minutes ago and I don't seem to have an
account anymore... Also, it seems that Geocities is now owned by
by Yahoo...

Also, I haven't had anyone contact me about a problem with the hacked-up
SGI logo I used, but it could be because the email link on that page seems
to have gone the way of my geocities acount... vanished.

In the past, I have received requests (freely granted) requests by people
to mirror the site, so there should be some copies available... I need to
see if I can dig up my original, or download one of the mirrors so that I
can see about restoring and/or rehosting it somewhere.

I'll see if I can figure out what is going on, and let everyone know...
