Print Story Wanna See The New Love of my Life?

By MohammedNiyalSayeed (Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 08:46:04 AM EST) (all tags)

Fuck yeah, you do. How could you resist? She's sexy, she's powerful, and she's sitting on my desk, practically begging me to touch her, to make her moan, to please her, right this second. I am the luckiest man on earth.



Fucking Hawt

There she is. Isn't she pretty fucking hot? Look at the way those dark blue curves go from where her feet meet the desk to her smooth, bezelled top, so ample and full, making her O face. Er, O2 face. Whatever. HOT!!!!! As for the moaning, I think I need to reseat the internal CD drive, as I'm pretty sure that's not a normal sound for an O2.

Man, I need a cigarette after all that. Be right back.


Reconnaissance by Signage

Sometimes, you can tell what neighborhood you're in by reading the signs; if they're predominantly in Korean, you can make a safe guess that your in a Korean neighborhood. If they're in Spanish, you're in a Latino neighborhood. If the gas station is giving away tire gauges to anyone who buys three packs of smokes, you might just be in a crackhead neighborhood. Or a neighborhood populated with cigarette-smoking auto mechanics enthusiasts. But seriously, how many tire gauges does one person need? And shouldn't that come with some Chore Boy? Strangely enough, they had Chore Boy for sale there, too. And the cutest little silk roses in these tiny little vials. Awww. The calculator is a pretty good deal, too. You can count up rocks with that thing.


Uh, OK...

I have no idea what the pictured device is, or what it is supposed to do, but it has a Meat Powder button, and has something to do with saliva measurement, so I think it's pretty cool.


Fancy Loft Crib Picture


Got Drunk Last Night

And woken up pleasantly this morning. Hours, and a meat pizza, later, I am back at 100%, just in time to wait til market close to shower, then go look at a Truman Showesque condominium.

Also, I like Joey, though Hank looks like a nice fellow, too. Choices, choices, choices.

I've made a call by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 1) #2 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 08:54:39 AM EST

I won't make it in there today, but I will on Saturday. And Joey and his brother are hard to resist, I'll admit. Plus, if there were two of them, they'd have someone to play with while I was at the office or whatever.

But what the hell is an O2 and why the fuck would I think it's hawt? No really, I used to be a real geek about obscure hardware. (If it's not obscure, or not hardware, then I'll just sit here red-faced while you explain it to me as if I were a small child, or an old man out of touch with technology.)

The Silicon Graphics O2 by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 09:14:04 AM EST

Is kind of old, though not ancient, and was the descendant of the SGI Indigo, Indigo2, and Indy lines of desktop UNIX workstations. Totally underpowered by today's standards, but the graphics and audio processing abilities are still quite usable, and the hardware design is absolutely marvelous in it's modularity. Everything comes out as a panel, with a locking level to make sure things are seated before you finish up your maintenance. Mmmmm, SGI...

Oh, SGI. by Lost In A Dream (4.00 / 1) #11 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 09:21:26 AM EST

I friggin' loved the only two SGI workstations I ever had the opportunity to drool work on. Wish I would have bought one when I had the chance. I could have picked up an Indigo2 for about thirty bucks sans monitor. Don't know why I didn't know about the O2 though. Probably stopped paying attention to them around then.

An old "friend" of mine... by Jave27 (4.00 / 1) #19 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 09:54:26 AM EST
got busted for stealing a plethora of things from a college once, and an SGI Indigo 2 was amongst the heap.  I got to dabble with this machine once pre-his-getting-busted, and it was a pretty impressive piece of hardware.  It "came with" a 3D modeling program that he was using to design his own firearm with.  It was around that time that I stopped hanging out with him.

Shit man. by Lost In A Dream (4.00 / 1) #23 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 10:09:59 AM EST

There was a dude I worked at the computer company with, and on rare occassion hung out with. He used to crack government web sites for fun. One night he busted into the state computers somehow, and within minutes the cops were at his door taking him in "for a good scare." Of course, the next day he got a call from some state official wondering if he wanted a job.

Last I heard he was getting locked under the mountain in Colorado, top secret clearance, working the big-time. Lucky bastard.

I wouldn't doubt it, actually... by Jave27 (4.00 / 1) #33 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 10:52:47 AM EST
This guy was a genius, but he's a loose cannon.  He got away with everything malicious you could think of for about 10 years, then finally got busted because he dropped a flashlight on the scene and went back for it because it had fingerprints on it.  Cops got to him about 30 seconds too early, or else he would have made it.

I'll have to post more about him (and my adventures in the cr1m3 sc3n3), probably very anonymously, though...  The guy had a collection of stolen chemicals that would make Teh Terrorists jealous.  Once he got busted, he never ratted on anyone until his other "friends" got busted and ratted him out for everything they could think of.  Then, he turned on everyone to cop plea bargain.  No honor among thieves, I guess.

He's now married in the deep south undertaking some type of mission that he won't talk about.  He is 100% incapable of emotion, so his marriage is obviously not "real" in the true sense of the word.  I talked to his old best friend, and he questioned him about what he was "actually" doing.  After a huge series of questions, his final answer was, "You'll find out in 5 years."  Kinda creepy...

The O2 was/is an SGI box that ran Irix and looked bitchin cool in comparison to the other stuff at that time.

It came out around 8 or 10 years ago (I worked at SGI at the time and we just got them in our lab in 1996ish). They replaced a lab full of Indys. They were sweet at the time, now I'd only want one for nostalgia purposes, and even then I'd go for the Indy cause of the cool camera.

I've got a 4D/35, 2 Indigo2s, and Indy, and now the O2. And I've scaled back from a few years ago, just because I didn't want to move the stuff. They're so cheap now, it's increasingly difficult *not* to pick them up.

There's a whole other Apple collection, dating back to ][ci, then the Sun pre-Sparc line, and the Sun post-Sparc line, the NeXT collection, the Osborne 2, the Commodore SX-64 "portable C64", the, oh, fuck it. I'm out of control. But less so than I was a few years ago.

Do you have a NeXT cube? by blixco (4.00 / 1) #35 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 11:01:35 AM EST
We had many of the NeXT boxes at one of my jobs in California.  They were used by some developers in a company that couldn't pay us.  So we stole them...er...took them in lieu of breaking a kneecap or two.

Man, I miss those machines.

a big real estate company that starts with an "A", would it? Because that would be just too weird in the small world of coincidences department.

And yes, indeed, I do have a cube. I still use it to do granular synthesis on aiff files for a couple weeks unattended, with some kickass results.

Nope. by blixco (4.00 / 1) #41 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 11:32:02 AM EST
This was a software firm.

As an aside, two of my SGI clients in NoCal were Lucas enterprises: LucasArts and ILM.  That was the first place I saw a deskside Onyx.  They had eight at the time.  They eventually had....a lot.  I don't know how many they had.  Plenty.  Many.  Enough to need a new transformer outside the building.

Those ended up by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 2) #43 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 11:38:34 AM EST

Or are ending up, one by one, at the Alameda County Computer Recycling Center, where they sit in rows collecting dust waiting for some nerd-volunteer to try to revive, before they get melted into scrap. It's really almost sad. There's a wooden out-cabinet for a six-rack system called "Millenium.Falcon" or something that at one point was an Onyx render farm. If space weren't at such a huge premium, I'd convince James to sell that shit to me. Of course, now, shipping would be the big issue.

It's always something.

I'll hit ya from home tonight. by Lost In A Dream (4.00 / 1) #45 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 11:42:46 AM EST

I've got some software to go along with it. Including the first music program I ever used. Can't remember the name right off. Multiple tracks, each track a different "instrument," which was really just a different waveform or something, and each note needed to be programmed in individually. Ah, so many hours lost putting in sheet music to hear what it sounded like through crappy computer synthesis.

Kick ass. by Lost In A Dream (4.00 / 1) #70 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 06:09:09 AM EST

I checked once with the Apple shop in town and they said they could do it, but it would cost nearly five hundred bucks to get the chip. I wasn't paying that when I could probably eBay the whole thing for about forty. But, for nostalgia reasons, this is the computer I want to keep. So if it's possible to get the part, I'd be all over it.

  • SGI Indigo 2
  • Alphastation somethingsomethingsomething (I'm ashamed to not remember exactly which model it is, and the face plate is sort of burried under a stack of other stuff at the moment)
  • Sun 3/50
  • C64
  • PDP 11/53
  • Tandy 200
and various other not quite antique stuff. You've easily got me beat, though. Damn! I'll have to pick up the Amiga a friend's been pesting me to take off his hands.

Well by TimM (4.00 / 1) #26 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 10:29:26 AM EST

I'm one of those weirdos who tries to only keep computer equipment I'm currently using. If I got an SGI of any kind, I'd have to find justification for using it and for the space it takes up; having a Linux box at home takes away the "I need Unix!" issue, and I haven't found another good reason besides nostalgia, which has been beaten down by the needing space for it issue.

(Never mind the fact I have 5 old PCs in the back room of the basement because I can't find a place to donate them to locally... yet!)

No Onyx Reality Engine?  I found one for sale (with a set of 110/120VAC power supplies, which I didn't think was supported) recently with 4 x r10k procs, a full MC3 memory board, four raster manager boards, a geometry processing board, 2 vcams, and a DG4-2.  It was used at a television station.  Figured I'd buy it and use it for two things: the great SGI game I am partially named after, and heater duty.

OK, I guess I can see what a lighter and pen (?) and calc would be useful for, but a tire gauge ? Do you need to measure pressure for cooking crack or crank ??! Or is it just a photoshopped pic? (which is what the dohicky looks like)

A good metal tire gauge by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 2) #17 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 09:52:05 AM EST

Can be hollowed out; you take the measuring tube thing out, and the Shrader valve off, and you're left with a quick-cooling metal tube with a little bowl-shaped ball at the end, which can then have Chore Boy or charred Brillo put in the bottom of it, which serves to increase the surface area of melted-and-about-to-be-vaporized crack.

At least that's the word on the street.

He claimed he thought of it by Dr H0ffm4n (4.00 / 2) #73 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 06:29:01 AM EST
But that's the way I'd conditioned him. My own fault really.

rose vials by vardaman (4.00 / 1) #50 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:24:08 PM EST
... are, supposedly, perfect for use as crack vials.  And, presumably, little else.  Or was this implicit in your original commentary?

Yeah, I was employing 'coyness' and 'sarcasm' by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #62 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 04:34:57 AM EST

To point out that the gas station in question is a crack paraphenalia store. The roses inside said vials are so unremarkable that it's a fairly shallow disguise to even have them in there at all.

WIPO: why I'm scared of crack by monkeymind (2.00 / 0) #53 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 09:12:51 PM EST
  1. I have a fairly [read: very] addictive personality
  2. Ever other drug I have tried has lead quickly to a 'very heavy binge eposide' with the usual outcomes...
  3. I see no reason for the above points to change WRT crack.
PS. I am also scared of H

Duly noted by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #63 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 04:38:27 AM EST

If more people were aware of the addictive nature of their personalities, there'd be fewer addicts out there. Possibly. But your assumptions on crack are spot on; if you have had issues with amphetamines or other addiction-prone controlled substances, you will likely have issues with crack, much moreso than regular unprocessed cocaine.

I'm an H avoider, as well, though not so much out of fear as just confusion as to what the point of injecting myself with something that makes me puke on myself, but takes away my motivation to clean it up, is. If I wanted that feeling, I could just take a sleeping pill, and then drink a whole lot of something really nasty, and puke on myself while I lay in bed.

Drink a ridiculous amount of Canadian Windsor. Like a certain someone I know. .

The 'meat powder' device. by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 1) #54 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 10:10:18 PM EST
I may be wrong or someone may have said this already (53 comments, meh) but that looks to me like a device Pavlov would have used in his classical conditioning experiments on dogs.

FOR SHAME MNS, FOR SHAME.

Have you been experimenting on puppys? Waggy will not be pleased.

He's watching you...

Poor little Waggy! by MohammedNiyalSayeed (4.00 / 1) #61 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 04:33:28 AM EST

The odd thing about the box is that, aside from that switch on the right hand side, there's no plug, port, or any other means of gathering electronic information any way other than manually. Then there's the issue of what's powering it, as it operates without any visible battery compartment or AC plug. It's the damndest thing.

But, for the record, I'm not doing anything bad to Waggy's adorable and delicious little fuzzy brethren.
