My Octane would download with netscape BUT it seems as if the file is above eight megabytes the file never ends. It gets to 100% and stays there perpetually. If I stop the download the file disappears. if I copy the file while its sitting there waiting to finish even at 100% it can't ever unzip/unt...
No you don't need drives or a monitor/keyboard to power on. Testing a power supply is tricky. You would need some load resistors and then figure out which pins jumper it on.

Yeah you could use the javastation as a serial terminal. Without the network it boots to some JavaOS demo built in the flash. You'll need a boot server and NFS to export the filesystem. I always wondered if it was possible to flash another OS image instead.

Just wanted to confirm that a Corsair CX600 power supply works fine. Those Seasonic supplies have terrible reviews.
OS/400 or iSeries or whatever they call it now needs a license key or it times out after 70 days. I'm not sure about z/OS expiring. But depending on the hardware you'll need license keys to even boot. At least someone was nice enough to make a torrent of V5R2 recently.

If you're not comfortable working with electronics I wouldn't attempt this. These supplies are twice the parts density of a normal PC supply. In other words 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound box. There are two main boards with numerous daughter boards standing upright. The top output board had many lea...
