My hardware collection and related topics. I really love medium aged
hardware from interesting manufacturers like SGI, SUN, DEC etc. I don't
collect homecomputers like the famous C64, my main interest are workstations
and servers, especially the non-x86 based ones. Most parts of my hardware
is listed on the home-LAN page.
I really love SGI workstations. They have a superior design,
both technically and externally speaking.
Always wanted to have an original SGI box? Nowadays they are
really affordable (the used ones) thanks to ebay.
But of course there are lots of different models, so you might
need a bit help deciding which one fits best to your needs. So
check you the SGI
Buyer's Guide, which shall help your decision.
The "IRIX Administration Guide" is a collection of
useful information about installing, administrating and using
IRIX on SGI hardware. Check it out!
I don't have that much SUN hardware, I own three lunchboxes (two
IPX and one IPC) and two SUN clones. But I don't use them very
often, not to say I only switched them on to see if they still
Okay, PCs aren't really outstanding pieces of hardware, but I
use them, simply because they do their job, they are fast and
they are cheap. This may change when I got my first Apple G4 with
Mac OS X, but this will take some time...
Recently I got my hands on some old HP Workstations which still
do some fine jobs.
There is also some stuff that does not need an own category,
this can all be found in this section. For example printersrvers,
routers and such stuff. Plus - of course - my black NextStation.
This is a really cool device!
My newest love - DEC hardware. I don't have much stuff from digital
yet, but I hope this changes soon...
