Weta Digital in NZ had *masses* of SGI kit - wandering around their machine
room was fun. I wonder if it's still all there... probably been ditched for a
load of PCs by now :-(
I'd love a big SGI - Indy/Indigo/4D machines seem reasonably plentiful (for
purchase+shipping costs at least) but the big stuff seems pretty rare (&
uneconomical to move long distances)
