Me and the lab kitteh
FAQQ. Why Silicon Graphics Machines? Aren't they old?
A. SGI workstations were the pennacle of computing in the 90s, when I started my career. My first "real" experience with UNIX was on an SGI Indy at the University of Wyoming and the first machine I purchased for myself was an SGI Indigo r4k in 1998. So they hold a special place in my heart.
Q. Are you associated with IRIX Network?
A. No. While I previously helped found the community, due to some disagreements, I, nor Dataforge, are no longer affiliated with IRIX Network. However, you can find me on the Silicon Graphics User Group, The IRISTalk Discord and the DFW Retro Hobbyists group.
Q. Do you do anything besides retrocomputing?
A. Yes! One of the core interests of the community is computer graphics (this is running on SGIs afterall), both retro and modern alike. Dataforge is also a testbed for latency and reliability resilient protocols and is a member node of the Internet's largest UUCP network.
