I'm not sure how any post could be irrelevant ON YOUR OWN FORUM ;)

Re: Silicon Graphics 1600SW Monitor - $50.00

I think in the latter case people were put off by the "temperamental" note on the mla, I know I was!

Re: New MIPS based handheld

I was a tad confused because there are already some homebrew kits for the PSP, I had no clue that it was impossible to load stuff onto them. http://www.develop-online.net/news/32779/Sony-to-consider-totally-free-PSP-dev-kits I hope the days of certain companies thinking that developing for their pl...

Re: New MIPS based handheld

Given that Sony have done their damnedest to crush the home brew games scene on PSP you might be waiting for a while to get an SDK! Apparently they haven't been having a good time persuading people to buy the PSP Go either.

Re: Cars (was SGI "Octane" III)

When I was shopping for a car recently I actually seriously considered a second-hand police crown vic. You can get them with the bull bars still attached which I figured would come in handy if I ever got bored in a traffic jam. The sales guy told me that they're designed to be able to drive over a h...

Re: Sweet deal on a used ThinkPad!

I think I know what happened to this machine. The owner had just finished typing a long ass reply into some web forum when they inadvertently brushed the stupid page back/forward buttons that whoever designed the Thinkpad keyboard added on either side of the up arrow key. These have no purpose excep...

Re: sgi 540 power issues.

It's been ages since I looked, is there an option for that in the graphical setup screen perhaps?

Dammit archaic posted while I was looking for my card reader :? Anyway since I took it and his pictures aren't showing for me yet, here's the shot I took.

Re: Microdrive access

Just a crazy thought, but have you considered getting the same model mp3 player off ebay and putting the drive in that? You might be able to pick up one with a dead drive for example. Is this the kind of drive that fits in a cf port or what? I've used a camera with a CF port as a card reader in the ...

Re: SGI Remarketed

Didn't SGI have that page before Rackable bought them? I tend to skim over the blurb and look at the price so I don't know if the remarketed is green! claim was there before.

Re: Good quiet keyboards?

I've always been pretty happy with the old Microsoft Natural Keyboards and Natural Keyboard Pros. The "ergonomic" shape is comfortable and the key action is smooth. I've never had a problem with joint pain from typing since I've been using them. The newer MS natural keyboards are not so go...

Re: what the heck ?

Yes, AT&T cheap out on the iphone users, our Skype can't use 3g and neither can the slingbox player. This is presumably to prevent iphone users from bringing their network to the ground (instead of just to it's knees like we usually do :) ) Same reason tethering isn't allowed etc. Originally, th...

iPhones also come with Google Maps and YouTube apps built in, that's what they're referring to. Just no Google voice unfortunately :(.
