    Exos-1 Problem, need suggestions!

    I am having some trouble with my exos-1. I spent the better part of the evening cleaning my exos but when I reassembled the unit, the user interface on the front no longer works. The green power led is lit up but the fans are not spinning. The pump is running however. I am very worried...

    More Xbox 360s Dec. 22nd

    Well this is odd, I just called my local best buy (Pasadena) and they said they did not get any in stock today. This is a big store that received 70 or 80 units last Sunday. Maybe they are holding out until tomorrow?

I don't know about most people but I check the site a few times a day and I just want to check the news. If I have to scroll down a bunch it is more of...

    Alright so I'm very excited to say I just picked up my apple system a wonderful powerbook. I'm having the incredible experience of sitting out on my patio listening to music streaming off of my NAS in the other room. While this all may not seem like much, this is freakin nuts to me! Anyhow...

    Raid5 Cooling

    I have a 5 disk raid 5 array and I have had the second disk failure in about 3 weeks. This would lead me to believe it is a cooling issue. Does anybody have proven suggestions on hard disk cooling. These drives are always on and noise isn't a big issue. I don't care about flashy blue...

    Raid 5 Array Restoring...Safe to Use?

    So after a drive failure in my new 1.2Tb raid5 array I left the whole system off until my replacement arrived out of fear of a second drive failing. But now the second drive has arrived and the array is restoring itself to full functionality. The downside...its going to take the next 20+ hours...

    TriColor LED Problem

    Wow well that was silly, I think the company I bought these from sent me the wrong type initially (common anode) and thats why I was so confused. I connected this thing up a minute ago and it worked exactly as I expected. Very cool! I highly recommend it.

    TriColor LED Problem

    Ya If you look at the data sheet basically thats what this thing is, 3 leds in one casing. The red one is the only one that lights individually, i'll mess around with it more tonight and post what I find.

    TriColor LED Problem

    I'm pretty confident I dont need a driver for this thing. I do like thore's idea of mixing up the pattern. I'll play with that when I get home from work. I'm under the impression however that the three colors can be on independently so you can mix the colors to get 8 different color combinations.

    Whats the best FTP Server program?

    I highly recommend eFTP, if you are using the eFTP client to connect to the server you can encrypt with 1024 bits of blowfish encryption. I really hate trial versions of software, and thats also one reason I like eFTP so much...its free! Clean user interface and easy to setup. (Be sure to...

    Carbon Fiber Material for Robot!

    I am working on a bit of a robotics project currently but figured you guys would be good to ask. I need 2 small 3"x4"x~.125" carbon fiber panels. I also need over 12" of 90degree angle. The 90degree angle piece needs 1" or 2" on the two sides and roughly the same thickness (.125") as above...

    Refinishing Beige Case - Restoring that Classic Look

    Alright thanks for the cleaning advice, what about the corner that got a bit deformed when the case was dropped? I wish I had a camera nearby to show what its like, basically the top right front corner of the case is slightly flattened and there is a hairline crack in the plastic. It isnt...

    Refinishing Beige Case - Restoring that Classic Look

    Gold USB sockets anywhere?

    Ya that really seems like the best way to do it/easiest way out, go to your nearest compusa and find some cheap usb hub like that one with gold usb connectors. Tear that thing open and unsolder them and there you go. You probably wont pay that much more doing it that way.

    Interest Check: 5Disk RAID 5 SFF Computer

    Interest Check: 5Disk RAID 5 SFF Computer
