My first "BIG iron" SGI was an Origin 2000 that I setup when I worked for
Comco (http://www.tx.altair.com/) back in '98-99.  "Oh yeah, just stick it
in an empty office and close the door.."

Power supply failed after about three months, DAMN that thing was huge and
heavy to pull out.

Oh wow, Comco's web page hasn't changed in almost ten years.
