    Curious - anybody sell a 4-place IDE external enclosure?

    I figure someone's got to sell one of these...the only one's I've seen that have been capable of holding 4 drives are the 1 TB units now available like the MinaVault. Browsing newegg got me nowhere, so here's what I'm looking at needing: - Ability to hold and power 2, or preferrably 4-5...

    Need help identifying WoW music video song..

    Unfortunately I can't, this was several months ago and the girl who had the vid has since lost the link...I hate to be so vague, but I can't imagine that are *that* many WoW music vids set to the tune of Jpop....if you guys could link me to a couple of WoW music vids I could confirm which it is...

    Need help identifying WoW music video song..

    Didn't want to put this in music as I figure someone who plays WoW would have seen it.. A friends sister who I don't really know was watching a WoW music vid that had a really catchy Jpop (japanese) song playing...I don't play WoW (yes, my computer is that slow and crappy) and accordingly...

    WTB: 3.73 GM Diff (midwest), nicer headphones

    Looking for a rearend for the blazer I just bought (71 Chevy K5 Blazer 4x4, leaf spring rear), PO decided he wanted the posi rear under it so I'm unable to move it until I get a new rear under it. Shipping on something that heavy would kill me so I'm looking for something cheap and in the...

    Good DMM Probes?

    It's looking like I'm going to be replacing my trusty craftsman DMM in the near future...after about 3 years of faithful service I'm wanting a DMM that can also do frequency counts, I'm either moving up to the top of the line $175-199 craftsman multimeters or (if money permits) a fluke...

    Wiring flash bulbs

    In answer to your original question, for anybody who searches looking for content from this thread: Your best best would be to go to a surplus shop (I highly recommend Axe-man surplus if you're around minneapolis) and pick up a bunch of those disposable camera flashes. Alternatively you...

    Homebuilt case (copper pipe) cooling capability?

    Ok guys, I'm embarking on a new project. I call it "Silence is copper" a dumb parody of an old song. Basically, the case will be about a foot cubed, and made entirely out of notched & sweat soldered copper pipe, 1/2" OD. My design is for square sides with a 8-faceted "star" patten that flow...

    Swapping HD boards? Possible?

    No audible sounds whatsoever, no beep or chirp. As I said, when plugged in a chip on the PCB gets very hot (over 100 deg in a matter of seconds) which leads me to believe pcb problem. I removed the PCB, plugged in power, same thing happened. Anybody got a diamondmax drive (preferrably dead...

    Swapping HD boards? Possible?

    Its not the molex, I checked power in at the PCB and got +5 and +12 where it should be with my dmm. As I said a chip warms up but there isn't any spin-up, so I assume that the chip is toast, I haven't yet pulled the cover to see if the drive is locked up but will try that later today (forgot my...

    WTB: Maxtor diamondmax Plus 9 (160 Gb) Pref. Dead

    Going to try swapping boards on a diamondmax that worked great one night and wouldn't spin up at all the next. Hoping I can recover the data. I'd prefer a "dead" drive (dead as in spins up but data is fubar, or bearings shot etc), if its dead as in won't spin up, I'm not interested. I'd...

    Swapping HD boards? Possible?

    Ok, so in a long lineage of bad luck with hard drives this year (have had 2 lappy drives & a 250 Gig die on my) I've got this Maxtor DiamondMax 160 that worked great one day, and not at all the next day on an external caddy. It worked great, the next day it won't even spin up - but a chip on...

    Disabling IE searching?

    Ok, so the integrated searching in IE when things don't go perfect is driving me nuts. First off, if IE can't find a page, I want it to tell me that, not redirect me to some bullshit MSN page and take 2x as long to admit it couldn't find the fucking page. Second off, on my dads computer my...

    Q: How much does platter alignment matter?

    The drive was toast anyway, so that point is moot. If the drive was already dead, I didn't kill it any more by popping the cover off. Now, I am *still* curious tho, do drives assume that the platter is completely fixed, or do the read/write heads look for an alignment byte on each individual...

    Q: How much does platter alignment matter?

    I think I was thinking don't hit the truck, don't hit the truck, don't hit the truck and then there was this big SMACK as my '90 maxima rearended an F-150. Did you even read my fucking post? The drive was toast the second I hit that truck, but I popped the cover off out of curiosity, and...

    Q: How much does platter alignment matter?

    Ok, so long story short I was in a car accident and my 250 gig WD drive was on the passenger floor, took a significant shock and now it makes bad bearing noise as it starts up and powers down as the bearing driver chip gets really hot. Now I popped open the drive, there aren't any scratches...

    Using PHP as frames?

    Nope, I'm not using any framesets at all. I hate frames - I think they look antiquated and I am aware of search engine problems. My site uses a basic tabled html page and php include functions to fill in various parts (like the navigation pane, footer, etc that are just defined as tables)...

    Using PHP as frames?

    Please excuse my PHP-newbness if this sounds off the wall and stupid... I'm currently reworking my website to use PHP includes to break down the site into a main page ("index.php") and then have a left pane for navigation (lbar.php), footer bar with contact/copyright info (lbar.php). I have...

    anyone in/near Reedsport, Oregon? (WTB shipping)

    Okay a little background: I've got my eyes on a sweet little welder in reedsport, OR that I might be getting for a fairly cheap price. Unfortunately, the seller doesn't want to ship it, but it's not as though it cannot be shipped, it only weights a maximum of maybe 80 lbs. So, I'm curious...

    Php term question...

    The problem with this, as I just tried it, is that in order for it to work you need to define every single page other than "default.php". Is there such a way to do this so that whatever follows the ?page= automatically makes the server look for a file of the same name? So that if you type in...

    Php term question...

    Okay, so I've re-written the code in the index.php file so that it now refers to the left links menu as a separate file (lbar.php), the right content pane as a separate file (rbar.php) and the footer with legal crap as a separate file (bbar.php) I did this (rather easily I might add) by...
