  1. Is a PB3400C acceptable? It's the oldest thing I have capable of connecting to the net.
  2. I'm buying one - will tell you all how it turns out.
  3. I dunno, it seems to have a very intuitive UI to me...
  4. Already been cracked open - no pics yet though. It's got, as the page said, a 68LC060 (the LC was somewhat surprising) and RAM in strange angled sockets. There's a main board and a daughter board, with slots that look more or less like PDS slots for adding more stuff (what precisely I have no idea) The HD is in a removable cradle with a standard USB-looking SCSI jack on the back.
  5. It works! After connecting it up to a TV and speakers, it displayed its screen. Inspection of the back revealed a serial port and an AT-style keyboard port. We hooked up a mouse and keyboard to these, and it detected and can use them! Found some info here: http://www.samysdv.com/dra-casa.htm
  6. At Computer Hardware club at my school a few days ago there appeared a mysterious black box, apparently from nowhere. Close inspection revealed it to have a SCSI hard drive in a removable bay and a FDD, as well as a tiny screen on the front and S-video in and out. Upon plugging it in and pressing the one obvious button, the tiny screen on the front displayed "Casablanca" and immediately the TV did as well. Hmm.. Google reveals this to be an Amiga-based non-linear video editing system, with a 68060 proc and 16 mb of RAM, as well as a 4gb HD which will be upgraded. More news later as it'
  7. Cool - they're very nice machines.

    Two conquests.

    Well, I was looking through the cabinets at Computer Hardware Club at my school, desperately looking for a new project since my last one, a Ubuntu file/web server for the club, had been resolutely refusing to develop any problems. Third cabinet I tried was golden. Two Mac IIsi, plus monitor! Joy! Turns out that: They were decommissioned school computers from the art department Neither had a HD One had a (gasp!) Ethernet card! And - One was dead as a doornail, the other was working beautifully (and now has a HD and will be browsing the text-only Web at some point in the future)
  9. I'm uncertain here... You only reject the tables that are higher than your shoulders? To be serious though: 'grats. I'm thinking about getting another battery for my Eee, though the current 6h battery life is quite good.
  10. Very cool. Have fun with it!
  11. All composite cables are the same. A red-red one will work or a white-white or a chartreuse-chartreuse.
  12. I'm somewhat confused by the above comments. I spent $40 on a 500watt PSU about 3 years ago and it's been working perfectly ever since. I don't remember the brand, but it hasn't had any problems. As for the OP, congrats! I have a more-or-less identical system, and it's great. Actually just installed XP on it over the Vista that was there, and it's really fast. A note though - OSX86 had problems with almost all nVidia graphics cards I've tried.

    Woot! I am in fact connected, through another BBS, with my Canon Cat. Power Station BBS provides a handy telnet service I've been using to connect to other BBSen.

    Awesome - go for it. I've been looking for some new BBSen to connect to.
