    Where can I buy a keyboard for the blind

    Short version: I need a keyboard with embossed letters, fairly raised so that a blind person can feel the letters. Where can I find one? My uncle is blind from a brain tumor many years ago. He was never sensitive enough to use braille, but he has been learning to use a computer slowly, and...

    project: smallest case using standard size parts

    I say make a cover for the top I/O panel as well, maybe route the cables from the top under a cover to the back so that you can easily manage your cables, and give the top a little more style to go with the rest of the sexy design -Mike

    Potential Hot Deal | BBA Radeon 9800 Pro

    BB doesnt even pricematch, so good luck with that. You have to find a CSR that is total n00b and maybe they'll make a mistake and give it to you. Plus, they look at prices after rebate usually, so its tough to pricematch these things, usually using an AMEX card is more successful...

    What is the best PCI video card out there?

    That is some serious power you're getting for that. IMHO at least for the engineers who do drawings, you NEED a good video card, i would think the same would hold for animations, unless this server is just doing like rendering calculations or something, although I can't see why graphic arts...

    Quick keyhole switch question

    Heatshrink is a good investment if you really want to do a lot of wiring jobs. It just looks so much better, is really cheap, and I just use a cheapo heat gun to get the job done (it's actually an embossing heatgun from michael's but works really well for everything from melting plexi-glass to...

    What is a good Soldering iron?

    I highly recommend a stand with any iron. The smell of burnt skin and and bubbly finger tips is not fun. I bought a decent Weller station, (I'll upgrade later to a Hako) and I haven't burned my fingerprints off since. Trust me, when you can't hold a pen for a week without wincing in pain, you...

    TI-86 Calculator LCD Screen

    I can't remember if you can push screens to the calculator from the graphlink software. If you could, It wouldn't be too hard to write a program that pull certain pieces of information and updates the calculator screen periodically. It wouldn't be very elegant or anything, but if you really...

    Help Building a Server

    :clap: Also, very important: Not stopping a backup while raid is rebuilding locks a rebuild, corrupts the new drive and the backups at the same time. :D The support is basically, can/will your IT guy live at the office for the day it takes to get things running or will you pay upfront to...

    Help Building a Server

    If you're doing a lot of database work then definitely you're going to want a good server, something on the order of 2 gigs of ram and dual procs. HDD space as you need it. I would say don't push backups from the workstations to tape, have users store valuable information on user or other...

    Help Building a Server

    How important is data security/reliability? Drive access performance? Are all the files going to be stored on the server? How powerful are your workstations? I imagine you need a lot of stability because of the nightly backups. I would def recommend a prebuilt server, as they aren't much...

    Low End Projector or New SFF PC?

    Forgot to mention I don't have a TV, it would be for lounging and watching tv and movies on a big screen. I know the bulbs run expensive, but I don't think i would replace it, seeing as It would be a while before it burns out, or drastically loses performance, I would just replace the whole...

    ps/2 to usb?

    Yeah, they sell these for laptops and its pretty cheap. I think most people are confusing female USB to Male PS/2 as opposed to what i think you need (Female PS/2 to Male USB), correct?

    Building a new system - advice needed (long)

    Also, USB 2.0 uses the same headers/pin configurations as USB 1.1, hence the ability of my former employer (BB) to sell rebadged 1.1 cables as 2.0 cables for more money :eek: -Mike PS They also do sell firewire/audio jacks that can be mounted in a bay, as i think you said you found.
