For most of the 90's I worked in a visualization lab stocked exclusively
with SGI's on the desktop, starting out with mostly the Indigo model:
(also a small Cray Y-MP in the machine room - set behind glass so
visitors could admire it).

Anyway, ever since the Indigo machines were being replaced with O2's,
I've had an Indigo in storage - pretty much forgotten about till this
thread. I'd often thought about replacing the internals with a suitable
sized mobo running Linux but I see on the wikipedia page that NetBSD has
some support for Indigos. I wonder if mine still powers up?
