Re: your latest purchase

You only need as much RAM as a system actually uses, any more is simply a waste of money! (no benefit at all) There is nothing worse than looking at unused system resources that you've paid good money for! (Having 24GB of ram in a system that only uses 8GB max, for example, the extra 16GB is simply ...

It looks rather interesting, however it's sad to see Swiss watchmakers such as TAG going the smart watch route, not nearly the same feel as a mechanical movement IMHO.

Re: Onyx2 quad R14K 500MHz, IR3, 1GB

Lekker, but how can you have such a boring name for the system?! :mrgreen: It deserves something better than IRIS. (Is that a RC glider fuselage in your passage?) It is indeed an RC glider (4 meter wing span). I have it hanging from the ceiling for decorative purposes. My dad is into RC flying (slo...

Your most prized hardware

In my case, my most prized hardware consists of my collection of modules from the original 3 Cray machines. Cray1: This Cray1 memory module is rather rare, as it has the white Fairchild chips on it.

My IRIS Indigo: I have posted this here, as I currently don't have an external CD-ROM drive or keyboard and mouse for this machine and therefore cant install the OS or pull an hinv for the moment. It's a R4400 150MHz with ELAN and it does boot to PROM.(I bought the modules from Ian Mapleson, so it d...

Re: How to measure time?

In the past, I have posted pics of the types of watches I have in my collection, but some of the pics were not pics of my actual watches.

Here are some pics of my actual watches:
