Subject: looking for SGI Indigo 2 system
A repair person in Phila, is looking for a WORKING SGI Indigo 2 system, purple
case. Let me know if you have one or know someone who does, for sale of course.
He's looking to buy something, for money. How much I don't know or care. He may
need other SGI hardware, in the near future.
This is for repair of a medical system. He wants something identical to the
nonworking unit, for repair parts. The software for use actually checks
Ethernet hardware addresses! So he can't just "swap in" some other box,
changing the software is painful and that's being worked on. The system is not
in current use, so this is not a medical emergency.
I'm asking him to identify his system as to processor and other features. I
don't believe the graphic cards are an issue.
Meanwhile I'm simply trying to locate an available system "near" Phila, pretty
much as a courtesy. I have parts but no systems left. Contact me accordingly.
