I cant find anything on the net that illustrates the various packages (i.e. Flame and smoke) versions and release dates.  Since finding system requirements for these packages is almost impossible, the release dates can give you an idea of which machine configuration the package would have been intended for i.e. Octane or Octane 2.

My question is, any idea what the timing would be for Flame 4, 7, 9 and smoke 5, 7 ect.  I did find an article about Discreet upgrades (Flame 7.6) that was dated Jan 2002.

I want to make sure I source the correct version of Flame/Smoke that will work with the Octane 1 MXE and not the Vpro/DM2. So a version from 1999-2001.

Not sure if this was brought up on nekochan in the past, but the recent ElectroGig thread jogged my memory. Does anyone here remember Vertigo Animation Machine, a 3D ap for IRIX in the late 80s / early 90s? All i can recall is that it had some decent RenderMan integration.

If anyone has any further info it would be appreciated!

So I bought a CPU upgrade for O2. This CPU comes with a gigantic heat-sink, and fan, and is shaped like a square. But when I pulled out the motherboard, the CPU module that was present had a notch in it to accommodate a ribbed heat-sink on another chip. This heat-sinks prevents the new CPU module to fit, am I missing some kind of riser card or something to make this work? Or is my motherboard the wrong revision for this particular CPU upgrade? And offcourse, how can I make this work? Smile

Searching the web and looking at multiple pictures, it seems I am missing a white plastic standoff / riser bracket to fit the new module.
Anyone know the part number, and/or where I might be able to find one?

Does anyone use a PS/2 KVM on their machines? I would like to get my hands on one for my Indy and 02, for just mouse and keyboard. I really don't want to buy a crappy new one, and have it not work. The vga component of the KVM would be nice, but not required at all.

So if I recall reading things correctly, regarding the ISDN port on the Indy, it was to plug an ISDN phone into and place calls over the network.  Did anyone ever try/use that functionality?  It would of course require peeling off the big angry sticker.

WhAt would be the best LN video editing application for an Octane equiped with the personal video option and Miranda divo adapter?

Don’t pan on doing HD, instead capturing CCIR 601 ntsc.

PThe hard drive in the scsi ID slot 0 (bottom) seemed a lot tighter than the two drives above.  Even though I have changed the bottom drive a few times in the last week, today the drive removal took some force.   In short the drive sled literally decintigrated in my hands.  I had to reach back inside and pull the drive out by the back.

Anyone else notice how brittle these drive sleds are?

Thank god I had a spare in one of my storage bins.

I’m considering putting some vasaleen on the sleds to lubricate them.

Just curious if anyone had any experience with these? I had a load come through back in the day, but never could get anything going and they went to scrap when we sold the building and I shut down MacPlus. I still have some video cables floating around, though, if anyone is interested. They are oddballs for sure, 3coaxial to 3BNC [RGB] and some are HD15[?] to 5BNC [RGB vsync hsync]

This has subsided for now, we believe. SendGrid support is to thank for this reversal. 

We've lifted the ban pending further testing.
