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

Out of curiosity, what were they complaining about? If it's just the use
of the SGI logo, that's easily remedied (I'll replace it with something
non-copyrighted... wasn't there a picture somewhere on the web of a
Rack Onyx sitting next to a dumpster?).

If, however, it concerns contents, (i.e. hardware hacks to the machine)
that may be another matter... however, I don't see how they could
pursue this, as long as you're not reverse-engineering a PROM. I still
believe you're allowed to take things apart, fix 'em and put 'em back
together again.

I will however, state that I don't have the financial means (or inclination)
to get into a legal fight with SGI over this...

I'm glad to know the "paralegal from hell" hasn't contacted you yet.
"Never Beige" and "The Sgi Addict" bit the dust due to legal threats
from SGI. I have enjoyed your site and hope to see it online once again.
