Latest purchase?
RE: Latest purchase?
I am indeed! I had a feeling the other bidder was you. I bid on the first one as well, but you pipped me to that one. I always wanted a High or MaxIMPACT board-set for my I2, but could never justify most current market rates for one given that it's just a hobbyist system. Anyway, the board-set works and it's been rather fun to play a bit of Quake (in hardware mode) and run some textured demos and whatnot on it.

Really jealous of that Onyx! Wish they were easier to find (and that I actually had room for one, lol).

Here's what I just got, though it's much less exciting:

A Sun ZX (Leo) graphics card. I got a pretty good deal on it, on account of it being "untested". Still, I suspect it's probably fine. If it does end up working, it would be a good addition to my Axil Sparcstation 10 clone, I figure. BTW, does anyone know what that little knock-out tab on the right hand side of the photo is?
