Just fired up my Origin 350 install server for the first time in nearly 1053 days (2.9 years).

IRIX Network Install documenting IRIX installation from a network host. This project will start with the bare minimum using an IRIX distribution server. Next steps will document minimal setup for installation from other OSes

If interest maintains, roboinst will be explored.

MIPS4.COM I stumbled on mips4.com about 25 years ago. Then the personal website of someone I had never met. Through the original website I found another personal website of a future friend. One day they posted IRC details and I logged on to a conversation that led to friendships near and far, in person and over the net.

I met the owner of mips4.com in IRC, and later in person. When their interests took another direction, this domain eventually would expire. An ad filed click-farm took over, a website in another language took residence. Eventually mips4.com returned to the open market and I snatched it up.

Searching for information about Silicon Graphics computers first brought me to mips4.com in the late 1990s, now this website once again is a personal site, now focusing on Silicon Graphics systems and related informatika.
