I'd be interested in a hobbyist licence program. It would
also be nice if they made IRIX 6.2, 5.3 and 4.0.5f available
for the older stuff.  These versions, along with 6.5, would
allow the restoration of almost any older system. I can't
imagine the availability of any of these older versions
hurting their revenue stream... although it may be advisable
not to ask for too much initially... we might frighten 'em

As to what I do with the above (besides heating my house), I mostly
tinker with the hardware and play around with some distributed processing
stuff. Not all the equipment above is currently operational, as I am short
on both memory hard disks and caddys. Such items seem to migrate to the
particular machines in use at the moment.
