There was this Octane ya see... So, now I have it but I want to see the
video. I have an Extron rgb112 box --- that's the one with the
Sun/SGI/NeXt switch on the back. So, here's the question: if I put the
switch in the SGI position, what will the "local buffer" output of the
Extron box generate? Still SGI? Can I use a 13w3 to VGA cable directly?
Amusing story of the day: powered up a Multia --- doesn't pass POST, count
das blinken lights = 14. Secret decoder ring says memory problems. Open
up the box. Yup, it's got BIG memory problems --- NO RAM! So if anyone
has any spare "true parity" memory, let me know.
