Re: Hardware is Cheap, Programmers are Expensive

Medium pages open practically instantly on an ipad, less than two seconds at least.


So there's no point in optimizing further?

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

Interesting writeup. Do you know of any sources of info on Aquarius? folklore.org turns up nothing. You've just read the sum total of what I have. There are some apocryphal references out there on the Web, but they probably hail from one single source. No one I've read knows anything about the actu...

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

Don't feel bad. I actually destroyed a WGS 9150 I got from a friend many years ago for parts. In my defense it wasn't working and this was when they weren't as rare as they are now. As penance I will keep the one I do have running forthwith. :P Oooh, do you have any pictures? What OS do you run on ...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

What OS is it running? If OS 9, Sonnet Metronome can often get an accurate clock speed, or CPU Director if it supports it. If OS X, what does System Profiler think?

With the exception of the execrable CM-141 and its relative the 1802, Commodore did manage to pick great monitors to rebadge. Besides the 1084, I am a big, big fan of the 1702.

Hey, I'm reading this on a 1GHz iMac G4, so I'm doing my part.

SX-64s aren't super rare, it's just that people hoard them (I'm guilty of this, I have three, including one NOS boxed unit) and they're popular and wacky, so they don't sit around long on ePay and Crapoo!.

Re: The Problem with Apple

Yup, lots of local stuff here (that backs up to a ghetto-NAS file server, and that in turn backs up to single drives I take to the storage unit occasionally).

Re: The Problem with Apple

From the Macbook case to ground: 56.35 VAC and 82.6 uA, going at times to about 118 uA. Not too bad I guess. It didn't bother me. Of course a lot of the people complaining also live in 240V countries. My wife's MacBook Air is Australian and her wallwart has a ground plug. OTOH, my US MBA does not, ...

Re: Best BSD Laptop Guide

:O I had no idea Olivetti made computers. Olivetti made a number of systems; some were quite notable. Several of the models were rebadged in other countries such the Olivetti M24, which was sold as the AT&T 6300 and Xerox 6060. The Olivetti Programma 101 (1965) is even considered to be the firs...

Re: Diagnosing an HP Visualize C3000

They're attractive systems. I admin'ed a C3750 for a brief period as one of my last jobs before getting out of IT entirely (the biology department was using it for visualization). Unfortunately I remember very little of dealing with the guts, since it was nearly new and worked perfectly.

Re: an easy way to remotely execute x86 apps as they were local

No, that's what I was thinking of, but I'd still need something to handle the networking and accommodate it inside (probably inside the indentation on the air deflector).
