Re: The Net.. Sandra Bullock

The only thing good about The Net was Sandra Bullock, and even that/she is a matter of taste.

"Attention" is a nice way of putting it.

Re: WeirdStuff Warehouse is closing Sunday April 8

I bought a couple FireWire hubs there. Those were, sadly, my last purchases from WeirdStuff. :(

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Sitting in the Air New Zealand lounge in Auckland because our plane last night sprung a leak in the hydraulic system (kind of a problem). But, they put me up in a luxury room overnight. Pity I didn't get much time to enjoy it. Hopefully back in Sunny So Cal "earlier today" (I love the flig...

Re: Apple to stop using Intel processors in Macs, reports say

I do agree a bit with that, but the real issue with this is that they may go more towards iOS instead of OSX. That is absolutely my fear, and another reason why I'm just giving up completely on modern Macs. I'll probably buy a high-end ARM Chromebook and wipe it for Linux for my next laptop; I'm al...

Re: California Proposition 65 Notice

If these Prop 65 notices were credible, we'd all be dead by now. Well, that's just it. They're not, necessarily, wrong. Acrylamide (the compound in the coffee case) is carcinogenic. I was very careful when I worked with the stuff in the molecular biology lab when I was an abused undergrad. The prob...

Re: Talos Secure Workstation

I imagine they mean people repurposing them as workstations, which I guess is possible. (I wouldn't.) EDIT: No, actually, I guess there are some. See second reply: https://twitter.com/unixterminal/status/978823491465162752 Btw, where the fark did this Twitter embed thing come from? It's obnoxious. I...

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

The Mindset was a truly interesting machine for the time, though compatibility issues make them tricky to actually do anything with.

I myself wouldn't mind a PowerStack.

Re: your latest purchase

Those are nice cars. Retro without being as anachronistic as a bug or jeep for example. Very popular and run well. Somebody in our building has 3 of the damn things. I never thought I would have a challenger in a million years but attitudes change once you get behind the wheel. I might have been bu...

Re: Efficiency - PowerPC G4 vs. G5

Well, either way, under "sitting around" load it pulls around 220W. That's with 16GB of RAM, an SSD and a spinning disk, CPUs at Reduced performance and a Quadro FX4500 video card.

Re: Efficiency - PowerPC G4 vs. G5

I'm guessing you're not using these old ladies for 24x7 number crunching?


My quad G5 actually *is* on 24/7, largely because there are files on it I need to sometimes remotely access, and I can do some work on the browser remotely over coffee breaks.

Re: Efficiency - PowerPC G4 vs. G5

I don't find this in any way surprising. The 970 is just big and power-hungry.

But it's the fastest Power Mac, so.
