In a nutshell:
a64 SFF for my Paypal Cash (black preferred)
and 512 mb pc3200 / decent Vidcard if price is right. By decent, I mean better than my GF mx440, needs to have dual monitor out in some form.
Just put my DOA Ideq 200p up for RMA to Newegg, and I'm getting a...
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...
What transformers you got? I'm missing a constructicon my friend bit the head off of. I want the whole set! that and my old school Optimus Prime is busted. Let me know,
here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
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
how much for the shuttle with the ram you said you had?
I'm looking to upgrade, and you look the person to help me, but I think the ram might be too pricey for me(wish i could afford it and the x800), anyways PM me prices with/ without ram to 95035.
I live by a computer surplus store as well. I bought a 24 port 10mb hub there for $25, If you want, I can look for one for you
Last time i checked, they had a 48 port patch panel for $20 and they still had plenty of these 10mb switches. Let me know,
BB doesnt even pricematch BB.com, 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...
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...
Ill buy your keys and your wallet if you give me your home address.
jk free bump for you! might try getting the mx duo from overstock, i got mine there with a 10% off coupon, was $53 shipped, I think the coupon expired but headsup
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...
Just pick up a serial to usb converter cable from a store for cheap. They run for as low as $10-$15 and emulate a com port.
ex: Heres a cheap WRONG one from compgeeks
Sorry, I didn't read all the notes on that cable, yeah fork over the extra cash and get one that emulates the com port
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...
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...
: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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
Just got paid nay 5 hours ago, and I'm already thinking about what to spend my money on. I figure I'm going to limit myself to these two options.
1. Decent mid-low end projector <~$1000
2. SFF System or maybe a new one of those 5lb dell laptops if they go on sale.
I currently have...
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:
PS They also do sell firewire/audio jacks that can be mounted in a bay, as i think you said you found.
