Over the course of time, we've had issues with non useful stuff being brought in.
This isn't about that at all.
This is a freaking SGI.
When I first got in to 3D Modeling and animation, this is the machine we all drooled and lusted after.
It might not seem like a super dooper powerhorse right now, but if you compare it to a 486 dx2 33 mhz machine with 4 meg of ram, it's the shizzle.
I like it, it's gorgeous, we should find a home for it, if we can do so and have it be useful, that's a bonus.
If we can have things like this in such a way that the having of it doesn't interfere with someone elses use of the space, then why not?
If it needs a home outside of the classroom (for some reason), that's doable; I do know that it's from now on going to be one of my talking points when I give a tour.
