I thought you only had 8 in that thing! :-)

I'm thinking our R5K Indy with the 24bit board might be useful as a
front-end for some ray tracing exhibit - I think it's the only 'old'
machine we have with 24 bit colour.

We've just got that machine, a pair of R4K Indys (one with a duff CPU so
spares only), the Webforce box, a pair of Indigos, and the 4D/25.

The latter three still only have one keyboard to share between them
though :-(

It'd be nice to find an O200 or O2000 someday!

Aha! :)

does that mean you'll be clearing them out of all things SGI? ;-)
