My Challenge L makes a good whole-house heater. Even here (an island in
Puget Sound), it is almost enough that we don't have to run the real furnace
much in the winter.
On the general Indigo^2 subject ... Those are great machines. A topped-out
one makes quite a decent workstation/miniserver; you can run a bunch of
stuff without its affecting your foreground applications. IRIX can be a
lovely desktop, and even a base I^2 with just IRIX has enough hardware and
software power to do an amazing amount of audio-video work.
Installing IRIX is a PITA; the "inst" installer is probably the pathological
case as an introduction to a computer, but, after that, it's pretty smooth.
Some sites you'll want to investigate:
