Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Indeed congrats, I was discussing with the wife how I absolutely needed a Tezro and possible won out, but I'll save it for the next possible machine that pops up.

Re: Octane: 2xR12k 300MHz, 2048MB, MXE

The light bar does look great, something I will have to address with all my Octanes very soon. They all work, but a little flat, I want them to look like a damn disco!

I do fancy a Tezro no doubt, and this does look good, the fact it has the XT-DIGVid, DCD it just has to be a V12.

I could just plug this system in without buying anything else... if it is a working system.

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

I was tempted.. I contacted the seller.. free delivery to the UK.. awesome.. I could purchase this quite easily and not feel guilty since I would class it as a birthday present.. Unfortunately, even though I took the effort to google translate a nice email to the seller.. I feel he was as informativ...

As for the network environment: My main VM machine is running DINA, I've confirmed successful TFTP transfers with other computers in the network. I'm also able to...
