Re: WTB: Octane drive sled

It isn't perfect, but I put up a 3D model on thingiverse for a sled that is currently working in both of my Octanes. It prints in three pieces. Order cheap rubber mounts from Amazon, screw on the rails, then a couple drops of superglue for the front (mount to the rails, not the drive). http://forums...

Wow, the plastics must be in really bad condition for the seller to use pictures that low quality.

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

If you like games, Bungie made a Oni before they were acquired by Microsoft. It was a lot of fun to play back on my G3s and G4s.

Re: WTB: Sparcstation 10 or 20

I think I saw one, with keyboard and monitor, for sale at Weirdstuff Warehouse here in Santa Clara, CA a few week ago. It was a couple hundred USD. It might still be there.

Re: your latest purchase

I'd just like to know why in God's name anybody puts the Caps Lock key on these little tiny micro-keyboards. NOBODY USES CAPS LOCK. ALL IT DOES IS GET IN THE WAY. And that goes double when it's on an already-cramped keyboard, the same size as and immediately adjacent to one of the most common lette...

It went for more than I was willing to bid without more info. Hopefully somebody here got it so we will find out the specs. It looked like a fairly clean machine.

Deleting a google account definitely qualifies as "pointless." They are still going to track everything you do and associate it with whatever was on the previous account.

I think we understand, we just disagree. Also, given the lack of sales, we were probably right on this one.

Re: your latest purchase

Funny, I find Windows 10 to be better than windows 7 at getting out of my way. However, I hate the forced updates which will reboot my computer in the middle of a working session without warning.

Re: Neat Tezro for sale in the US (No international shipping though)

If you are willing to bid to about the $950 mark then you could probably win it. That seems high. Honestly, I debated at $700. There are no pictures of the inside, no hinv, no extra PCI cards, and only a vague guarantee that it even starts. My experience buying computers on ebay is that people who ...
